Anderson Valley Boont Barl Bourbon Barrel Amber Ale

RATINGS: 76   WEIGHTED AVG: 3.49/5   SEASONAL: Spring   IBU: 16   EST. CALORIES: 180   ABV: 6%
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

GG, Seattle. Thick, soft off-white foam. Very dark malty brown-black. Sweet, dark brown malt nose, malt reduction. Body has overtones of sweet vanilla barrel, but nothing too distinct. Vanilla overtones on a lighter, almost watery at times, amber-brown flavor profile. Some alcohol bitterness around edge. Round fruitiness in middle. This is all over the place. Plenty good, plenty distracting. Odd flavor profile for the dark appearance.

JFGrind (2071) - 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 (1151) - 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 (1374) - 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.

Dfonorow (2274) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2016
On tap at Anderson Valley. Pour is amber/red with a small beige head. Flavor and aroma of bourbon cask, light grain, peat, vanilla, and a bit of leather.

Jade (435) - 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. It’s a damn good beer.

Sammy (12769) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 28, 2015
Good retained head on amber body. Smooth, no booziness at all. Good fruity taste and smell from the bourbon.

Davros (3290) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - DEC 20, 2015
Pours dark amber with a small head. Nose shows coconut, vanilla, caramel and biscuit-like malt. Flavours include more coconut and vanilla, sweet malt and caramel.

markducommun (1224) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 10, 2015
Cloudy mahogany, ample tan head. Fruity, sweet malty grain. Sweet. Medium body, light carbonation, chewy. Fine.

fletchfighters (1580) - 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
