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.

Not a bad stout. I thought it would be a little better. Overall it was an ok beer.

Acquired on a wing and a prayer, no experience with Anderson Valley. The bomber delivers a dark reddish-brown body and a slender, light brown top. I take a full smell. Caramel, grain, malt. On to a drink. Hmm, not what I anticipated. Lightly stout-like, vanilla, toffee and some astringency. A decent bitterness concluding. But far from a high level stout.

Pint, alehouse hawaii. Not bad. I didn't get any whisky taste but very serviceable stout. Not a classic as not much depth but worth a couple of pints.

Draft at Haberdish. Dark brown color small head. Boozy whiskey aroma. Taste is mostly booze. Pretty boozy stuff.

Czarne, nieprzejrzyste. Piana beżowa, drobna. W zapachu jakieś brzoskwinie, wiśnie, strasznie nie-stoutowo, raczej brak beczki. W smaku też bardzo pusto, trochę kwasku, trochę brzoskwini, trochę paloności, trochę kawy, znowu brak beczki. Goryczka niska, wysycenie niskie, posmak troszkę cytrusowy.

( bottle) Aroma: plums, weak note of coconut. Appearance: black color, small head. Taste: semi-sweet, flavour of plums, vanilla and generic roasted malt. Palate: medium body, low carbonation. Overall: Thin one, seems somehow empty.

Draft. Darkest brown pour with a small tan head. Aroma is wet campfire, milk chocolate, bourbon. Flavor is a little tart even, nice and chocolatey, little sweet, restrained bourbon notes. Malt balls on the finish. Medium full body, low carbonation, slick. Pretty good.

3.7
ibrubeer (412) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - OCT 6, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 5, 2017 Draft 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.

1.7
Cakes (476) - New Bloomfield, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2017
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.
