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.

Aroma of roasted malt, vanilla, chocolate, tobacco, bourbon, oak. Flavour is roasty, sweet vanilla, chocolate. Not as rich and thick as some of the BBA Imperial Stouts Ive had, but this is one you can order in a bar without getting absolutely wasted.

Not that good, the bourbon barrels definitely gave this alcohol heavy beer a distinctly raw edge. Not for the faint of heart or palate.

NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Black pour with a khaki head. The nose is wonderful. Aromas of chocolate, oak, coffee, and bourbon. Flavor is a let down. Very thin body and the nose characteristics dont carry over in the same way to the flavor. This beer smells a lot better than it tastes. Not bad, but not what I was expecting and certainly not what I wanted.

Pours black with thin tan head out of bottle. Excellent aroma of chocolate, coffee, and wood. Taste of charred oak with cocoa and cream finish. Excellent beer! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Limuboy (2) - California, USA - JUN 10, 2014 does not count
pours with a creamy dense tan head. Nice aromas of bourbon and wood, with overtones of chocolate. The taste is espresso, chocolate and bourbon. Creamy yet fairly dry, smooth but not overly sweet. finishes with notes of chocolate and bourbon and a linger dry woody note. more reasonable in the alcoholic strength department then some bourbon barrel aged stouts, and - delicious

Deliciously aged stout. Has the body of a coffee-ish stout, with the great vanilla warmth of the bourbon. Good one.
