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.

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.

Bottle bought from Costco. Pours a rich dark body with a nice tan head but doesnt last very long. The aroma has a milk chocolate with a faint hint of bourbon, oh so slightly. Mouth feel is a bit watery for my taste. Flavor falls short for a burbon stout. I would prefer to have more bourbon,malty and chocolatey coffee complexities roaming around in my stout. The alcohol stays well hidden. This stout would be a good starting beer for someone to try a bourbon aged beer. Easy to drink but a little let down for a wild turky barrel aged stout. I would be happy to pay more if Anderson spend a little more time on the bourbon and oatmeal qualities that make a stout more complex. This is a good start although thanks.

Kolor bardzo ciemny, prawie czarny, jasna beżiwa piana, ktra szybko redukuje się do pierścienia oblepiającego szkło. W aromacie rodzynki, mleczna czekolada, mokre drewno, bourbon. W smaku palone słody, gorzka kawa, whisky jest naprawdę bardzo dobrze wyczuwalna. Piwo jest trochę kwaśne na finiszu, ma dosyć wysokie wysycenie i trochę za mało ciała. Po wygazowaniu piwo jest jeszcze bardziej wodniste. Tak czy inaczej średni stout z wyraźnym wpływem beczki po wild turkey, zarwno w smaku jak i zapachu.

This bottled brew from a bottle shop was served at a cool temperature and poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized light brown colored bubbles that were quickly diminishing and left behind no visible carbonation opaque black colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was malty and bourbon. The mildly vinous mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering mild roasted aftertaste. The ok flavor contained notes of cocoa roasted malt bourbon dark malt and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

W aromacie głwnie drewno i beczka, lekka waniliowa bourbonowa nuta. W smaku jest dość podobnie - sporo mokrego drewna, poza tym nieco kwaśne i delikatnie palone. Dosyć wodniste, wysycenie trochę za duże, przez co struktura nie jest zbyt gładka, mogłoby być lepiej. Oglnie dobry, z wyraźną beczką.

Pours an opaque dark as night black. Smells of dark chocolate and traces of espresso. Tastes of rich sweetness with woodsy overtones. Syrup-like body with a great mouth coating finish. I split a bomber with a friend and it was the perfect amount without going over. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Deep brown with a huge light brown head. Toffee, light whiskey, wet oak, tobacco and stone aromas. Has a dry woody whisky flavor that seems boozier than it really is. Has a medium body with a slick feel.

Drank from the bottle, very smooth bourbon barrel Stout. Strong bourbon aroma, tastes stronger than it is, very good drink!

This is a very interesting barrel aged stout. Aroma is very sour, very bretty. Makes it a rather funky affair. Very complex and interesting though, the Bourbon barrel is really very noticeable, also gives nice vanilla note. Medium body. Flavour is malty, quite sweet, lots of vanilla and bourbon flavours. Almost not sour compared to aroma. Not a very long finish, but a roasty vanilla taste remains. Weird but nice!
