3.48/5 rDev -7.4%
Bought a single 22 oz bottle from AJ's Beer Warehouse in Rochester. Poured into a chalice, served at room temp.
appearance: black with thick Khaki head, nice lace coating the glass,
smell: molasses with a light Bourbon aroma.
taste: thin on malt, Bourbon is very noticeable but is also light. This beer is seriously underpowered. Nice coconut finish.
mouthfeel: light for the style but maybe in a good way, feeling buoyant and durable.
overall: my 1st Anderson Valley beer and I am not overly impressed. This is a 'lite' stout and is lacking in body and oomph.

Pours and off very very deep opaquer brown with creamy tan head that held well. Thin collar. Aroma is some dark chocolate, vanilla and caramel sweetness. Taste is much the same with no noticeable bourbon or oak presence until the very end. Creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation and a body just on the thin side of thick.

3.81/5 rDev +1.3%
Appearance: black in color, 3/4 inch head, low carbonation, opaque
Smell: light chocolate and roasted malt
Taste: oak, chocolate, toffee, cocoa--a bit of Tootsie Roll taste
Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, heavy body, sweet with oakiness
Overall: I was impressed with the oakiness of this beer at first, but unfortunately the taste did not carry all the way through this beer. It was still strong enough, but I wish the flavor was a bit stronger. Still I would get this one again if I saw it on tap. Not quite what I would call good, but certainly one of the better brews from Anderdon Valley.
