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.

Smooth notes of vanilla and bourbon blended into sweet roasty malts. Deep black with a firm foamy tan head. Smooth sweet finish.

UPDATED: OCT 6, 2017 Craft at Yardhouse DEN. Sweet aroma, a little vanilla. Opaque black color, thin beige head, little lacing. Flavor detects a little bourbon, vanilla from the oak, a little sweet. Smooth mouthfeel. Pretty nice!

Piana zbita, opadając do cienkiej warstwy, lekko zdobi szkło. Świetny aromat, czekoladowe pralinki, sporo waniliowych nutek bourbonu. Pachnie to na prawdę fenomenalnie. W smaku jednak trochę czuć, że to cienkusz - beczka dominuję baze, nadając całość nieco wytrawny, kwaskowaty sznyt. Aczkolwiek czekolada i kawa są obecne, tyle, że nieco w tle. Nasycenie niskie. Jeden z lepiej pachnących stoutów poniżej 7%, jakich miałem okazję pić, choć smak też jest bardzo okej.

16 oz. on tap. Black in color with two wee twists of brown. Good looking but seriously, this tastes like Civil War medicine. It may be drinkable on a January day when you come in from shoveling snow, but that is it.

UPDATED: SEP 5, 2017 Bought bomber at Whole Foods' Palo Alto, carried this one and a pack of Rasputins in a bag while riding a bike, but I digress. Pours a beautiful dark amber to black with a beautiful beige foamy head. Aromas of bourbon, coffee, vanilla and dark chocolate are upfront. First sip confirms aromas, it goes down smooth and as it gets warmer the low alcohol content keeps lingering in the back, more like a bourbon, less like a beer. Liked it a lot, maybe because it is a well balanced stout that does not become overpowered by any one note.

Black with a brown head - Roasted malt aroma - Roasted malt body with wood, vanilla, and bourboun flavours - The vanilla and bourboun goes into a long lasting finish - This had a heavy bourbon flavour that made this good

Bomber poured into a tulip glass, pours black with a tan head. Nice lacing which dissipates slowly. Chocolate, bourbon, dried fruits, malt and vanilla a nice combination. I like this beer would recommend to friends!

Couleur bien bien sombre, mousse brune pas trop durable. Nez boisé sur le fût de Bourbon, clairement. En bouche c’est malheureusement bien décevant car pas mal aqueux et fade. Reste une sorte d’impression de Bourbon dilué dans une bière bien trop light pour être appréciable, malgré la présence de notes de café. Ça manque de rondeur, de corps et de malts. Ouaip, vraiment déçu...

Pours a nice dark black w/ tan head. Smell is excellent.. bourbon, oak, vanilla toffee wow. Taste is a little sweet.. heavy on espresso, vanilla, chocolate. Very smooth. Excellent.

Fľaša z beershop.sk. Tmavá až čierna farba, hnedá pena. Vôňa prezretých sliviek, ovocia, pražené slady, jemne bourbon. Chuť sladová, sladká čokoláda, prezreté slivky, červené ovocie, divoké jahody. Dlhá dochuť pražených sladov, sliviek. Výborné, ľahko piteľné. Alkohol je pekne skrytý, ale cítiť ho neskôr :)
