Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: tempest on 10-27-2012

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.

It had the look, it almost had the aroma, it sort of had the feel.
I think what distracted me the most from this beer was that it was over carbonated. The Bourbon aroma was there, but since the abv (6%ish) was low, there really wasnt any alcohol burn or influence.
This stout was on the lighter side, the finish was a bit thin

Draught into a snifter. Beautiful deep dark brown. Only beer I've ever rated a 5 overall as I absolutely loved it. Coffee and great bourbon flavor and the toastiness gives it a great depth of flavor. My personal favorite of all of the BBS's I've tried.
