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.

bursprak (2843) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JAN 19, 2014
Wow! This was a surprising one. Sample from a 65 cl bomber. Pours pitch black with almost no head, some tan lacings. Nose is heavy on the vanilla and some bourbon. Oily mouthfeel with vanilla, chocolate, bourbon and toffee.

Camons (11726) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle @ Voldby tasting. Pours black with a light brown head. Aroma of raosted malt, coffee, vanilla, oak, chocolate, quite heavy bourbon notes. Flavor is malts, coffee, caramel, vanilla, oak, strong bourbon. Thin to medium body, lively carbonation, somehow boozy finish for the ABV ( 6,9% ?) 170114

Sample at Voldby. Creamy lightbrown excellent fully lasting head. Black colour. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Moderate bitter powerfuill flavor. Alas Bourbon Vanilla too present. Average moderate bitter finish. creamy palate. Ok but I will never be fond of Bourbon notes.

Beermack (725) - London, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2014
Bomber. Black pour, mahogany head. Great bourbon on the nose: plenty of oak and vanilla, some light chocolate and dark roasty coffee notes. Taste falls short - it's all a bit muted and thin. Some decent bourbon sweetness and fairly tasty roastiness (bit of choc and coffee too), but nothing to match the nose. Lingering bourbon character. Think they should have thrown an extra few ABV % into this (especially for the price).

Really liked this stout. Lots of bourbon right off the bat with a nice vanilla note that lingers. Nice clean finish. Not too boozy so very sessionable.

emartell (352) - Zapopan, Jalisco, MEXICO - JAN 12, 2014
Aroma interesante y complejo con caracteristicas particulares que deja el aejamiento en barril. Aromas principales a madera y bourbon. Se perciben ligeras notas a cebada tostada y vainilla. En cuanto a su apariencia, color completamente negro, carbonatacion de baja a media, cuerpo medio, corona de espuma abundante colormarfil, muy buena retencin y excelente encaje de Bruselas. En boca es aterciopelada, interesante y muy agradable. Al paladar es compleja pero sabrosa. Suave de inicio, maltas tostadas, ligeramente toques de vainilla, madera y el caracteristico sabor del bourbon. En general es una excelente cerveza de temporada de Anderson Valley, muy buenas notas a malta tostada, vainilla, esa madera y el seco bourbon, siendo lo nico que podra decirse en su contra, demasiada suavidad para una stout. Interesante, compleja y agradable.

alethol (133) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 11, 2014
Pours coffee black. Beige head that quickly dissipates. Incredible aroma of vanilla. Taste also vanilla, bourbon, alcohol. Light to medium body. Short finish, with hints of liquorice. Misses depth and body. Slightly disappointing.
