COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What began with our flagship Boont Amber Ale and a passion for experimentation has become a unique addition to our Anderson Valley Wild Turkey Barl Series. The six month aging process in third-use Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels imparts flavors of coconut and vanilla and subtle bourbon aromas that are enhanced by a noticeable oak character in the finish. A great accompaniment to fine meals or to be enjoyed on its own, Boont Barl is a truly sessionable barrel-aged beer with finesse. MALTS: Pale Two-Row, Crystal (40L & 80L) HOPS: Columbus, Bravo, Northern Brewer, Mt. Hood

JFGrind (2012) - Glenside, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Dark pour, thin head medium bodied Amber with malt, oak and caramel flavors. Bourbon came through in the aroma and mouthfeel. Not an overbearing boozy beer.

Bricks (1019) - Delaware, USA - OCT 31, 2016
Nice dark brown appearance, great foamy head. Smell of bourbon, coconut, malt. Taste of malt, coconut, vanilla, bourbon.. a little thin, a bit heavy on the malt for me. Overall, a solid amber.

HighlanderOne (1249) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - MAY 30, 2016
On tap at Millstone in Rock Hill. Faint malt vanilla aroma. Dark Amber with lacing. The bourbon flavors (vanilla and wood) blend well with the sweetness of the ale. Also a dry feel. Well done.

Jade (434) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2016
Red gold, slightly opaque with a creamy head. Lovely aroma, almost chocolate. Very malty. Thick and satisfying in the mouth, leaves a caramel type aftertaste. Its a damn good beer.

fletchfighters (1430) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 8, 2015
Nice lower ABV BA beer. Raisin, toffee, burnt sugar, grape, malt, oak and bourbon. Soft in the taste but great feel, very rich and bigger than the ABV leads on

cheap (5425) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 29, 2015
tap mad mex. Big & black it seems. Smells a little tart, makes my mouth water. No tartness on taste. Rather more mild than expected. Very little co2. Yes, some whisky in thar. Per haps too much whisky barrel effects.
