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.

Poured into tulip from 22oz bottle. Aroma was dark fruits, raisins and dates, a little plum. Taste was roasted malts, earthy, dark fruits and a little chocolate. The Wild Turkey came on in the finish and was the aftertaste. Most of these barrel beers I taste seem to have a bit of the whiskey flavor but the finish of this one was pure whiskey. I loved this one, and I think it was my favorite bourbon beer yet.

Couleur bien bien sombre, mousse brune pas trop durable. Nez boisé sur le fűt 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 bičre bien trop light pour ętre 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.

W aromacie dominuje beczka po bourbonie, wanilia, kokos, trochę drewna + czekolada. W smaku kawa, trochę to wodniste.

Stew41 (2021) - Phuket, THAILAND - MAY 3, 2017
Sweet and seemingly high powered yet a tick under 7%. Massive intensity for the strength. Roast, chocolate icing, sweet stones. Presence +

Tap at Bear Republic. Black with tan head. Light sweet aroma. Real nice initial flavor. Smooth, creamy, well balanced flavor. Some dark fruit and cocoa.
