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.

Found this on tap at the Yard House in Chino Hills. Barney Flats aged in a bourbon barrel! I’ve tried many stouts that have been aged in bourbon barrels some are good and some are so over powered by bourbon and oak that they taste like soy sauce. The good news is Anderson Valley nailed this one. If you Enjoyed the Barney Flats Oatmeal Stout like I did this is gonna rock your world. The Appearance is Black l and it had a 1" head that stuck around for little while leaving a nice little lacing on the glass. The aroma is intoxicating in itself, bourbon ,oak, cocoa, and coffee up front and sharing the stage nothing really overpowering the other. The mouth feel is smooth and creamy as expected from an oatmeal stout. It taste like it smells except the malts and hops come forward and add tho the blend. The mild after taste is just like it smells mild bourbon and oak burn with chocolate. My new Favorite. Now if I can just find it in Bottles around here.

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...

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 :)

Draft. Moderate booze on the nose. A weird almost buttery thing in the background. Dark chocolate. Tatse follows. Slick on the tongue but good beer seven with that. Smooth.
