Bourbon Barrel Stout – Anderson Valley Brewing – ABV 6.9% – Black with a thick tan head. Scents of malt and oak. A thick stout with creamy tones that are cut but the oak and whiskey hints. The bourbon flavors are very strong in the after taste. I am impressed with the wild turkey barrels aging the stout. You would think the ABV would be higher by the strong taste and whiskey hints in the after taste but its not and it is much creamier and smoother the. I thought it would be. I give this beer a 4.5 out of 5.
I have been trying more beers by Anderson Valley Brewing lately and I am impressed by them. Their oatmeal stout is also very good!
