COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Complexity. Aged for three months in Wild Turkey Bourbon barrels, this luxurious stout has a deep ebony hue and a beautiful mahogany head. The woody, vanilla-like notes imparted by the barrels mingle with aromas of fresh baked bread, toffee, and espresso and envelop the rich chocolate and roasted barley flavors with a fine bourbon character. Our exclusive partnership with Wild Turkey gives Anderson Valley a world class, consistent source of barrelage, allowing our brewers to explore new frontiers in barrel-aged craft beer.

wvhoran (455) - Tasmania, - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle at The Winston with Ben. Looks more brown than black in the glass. The aroma is chocolate malt, slightly ashy. The barrel doesn’t make a huge appearance. Flavour-wise, fairly sweet initially. Bitter chocolate and vanilla. The barrel comes through in the flavour. Very smooth, surprisingly mild overall. Body is light for this kind of beer. Nice but not a standout.

BillWyce (1045) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Draught at Bru in Philadelphia. Poured opaque black with a "barely there" tan head. Aroma is roasty with notes of vanilla and wood. Full body, lightly oily finish with just a touch of booziness. Roasted malt flavor with notes of coffee and licorice. Wood note in the finish, with a light note of vanilla as well. Damned good.

phildorsey (161) - Fort Carson, Colorado, USA - MAY 24, 2014
22oz. Btl. Pours black, frothy and fizzy. Taste is full of flavor...vanilla and caramel notes dominate the palate. The finish is long, which savors the complexity of flavors. Top notch...top shelf. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ejh8 (118) - Massachusetts, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Wow! Served in a 1 pt 9 oz bottle, rich, deep dark espresso color with a richer, darker deeper taste with vanilla taste and a zip of coffee along with the bourbon. Super stout. Not as dry as some stouts and you could definitely option for a second glass. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

deyholla (10701) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 21, 2014
On tap at the 2014 OCBF. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice bourbon, roasted malts and sweet dark grains. Flavor starts with sweet dark grains, bitter chocolate and bourbon with some roasted malts backing.

BrewGoblin (632) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 22, 2014 A beautiful beer all around. A bulls eye bourbon-barrel aged brew, blacker than Chris Rock in CB4 and topped by a tan head that laces luxuriously. This dusky umber sud sniffs and tastes of bourbon, wood, smoke, dark chocolate, light coffee and burnt bread. A nice slick and skim-milk feel trickle down tongue-town. A pleasure, like two great things combined to be better. The bourbon flavour is the perfect amount; it manages to be ever-present but never thrusting itself front and center, instead letting the more important malt flavours reign. Worth every penny and one of finer BBAd brews going.

DuffMan (9747) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle, shared at the lake with Parksy, May long weekend. Dark brown with a creamy beige head. Sweet bourbon and chocolate malts in terrific balance. Like a younger brother of a BA impy. Drinks bigger than its 6.9%.
