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.

BeerandBlues2 (12334) - Escondido, California, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Tap at Lost Dog Cafe. Pours opaque black with a small, frothy tan head, short retention with good lacing. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, and oak with chocolate and roast malt and raisin esters. Flavor is malt dominant with bourbon, vanilla and oak, dark fruity esters and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation.

Holtguy (170) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 3, 2016
Pours black with very slight tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, burnt toast and a hint of whiskey. Taste is burnt malt, dark chocolate and slightly tart, ever so slight hint of whiskey. Not very bourbon barrel-ey. Pretty light bodied. Good.

shawnmurphy (20) - Plattsburgh, USA - NOV 26, 2016
22-ounce bottle poured into a small snifter. Appearance is nearly black with some reddish hues. Minimal tan head and lacing; head disappears quickly. Aroma is espresso, caramel, vanilla beans, faint cocoa. Taste is dark chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, woodsy, earthy, some dark fruits, and surprisingly very little of the bourbon flavors from the Wild Turkey barrels, which may be welcomed for the non-bourbon-drinking beer drinkers. Mouthfeel is somewhat prickly from carbonation; rich, yet not chewy; surprisingly light for a stout and amazingly easy-drinking for a 6.9 percent brew.

Serving: from tap at Marianna Ristorante. Aroma: heavy bourbon and light coffee. Appearance: small, creamy, light-brown, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, cola-brown body. Taste: lightly sweet, bourbon initial flavor and lightly acidic bourbon and smoke finish with average duration. Palate: medium-to-full body, watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very good flavor and aroma.

Draft at Growler Guys: Dark brown pour with a smaller tan head. The aroma fantastic. One of the best smelling stouts Ive ever had. Mild bits of the Wild Turkey barrel treatment, loads of German chocolate cake, vanilla, mocha its divine at this point. The mouthfeel is a little on the thin side, but good coffee flavor and a light bit of chocolate. Moderate barrel notes. Had the makings of a world class stout, but doesnt quite make the finish line.

A weak version of stronger better tasting stouts by other breweries. Just tastes bland compared with a good STRONG FLAVOURFUL stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
