Tobacco overwhelms everything. On the dry side.

Chocolate and vanilla and a little cooked sugar for good measure on both the tongue and nose as expected with a barrel aged stout. Not as much alcohol as I expected from a Turkey-barrel-aged beer so it lacks a little of the typical warmth but I don't really miss it here. It is an exceedingly pleasant brew that I feel would be a great introduction to the breed. It is not the heavier, fuller bodied, more potent example I can sip on for an entire football game but it can be nursed for a really good half! As a matter of fact, buy 2 and make it a full game you can enjoy win or lose. Perfect for the cool winter evenings of the South since it isn't quite as heavy as expected. Worthy of a purchase for sure.

Wow! This is an incredibly complex beer that manages to unite two of my favorite beverages. The nose is heavy on vanilla with a hint of cocoa. A mouthful of this beer starts with the appropriate stout dark malts and moves to a very enjoyable bourbon finish. The undertones of oak, milk chocolate and coffee combine to create a very unique taste experience. This is easily one of the best beers I've tasted in the last year.

Cant stand Wild turkey so I was skeptical, however this beer hit all the right notes for me. Bourbon ties perfectly with the Blarney Flats body and flavor. That's some Bahl Hornin!!
