Export version from the Netherlands; bottle simply reads "Bourbon Barrel Stout" without a mention of Wild Turkey, contains the same alcohol content, and a different background image of what looks like a bear. I believe this is the same beer though. Bought a bomber bottle of this from Tanakaya in Mejiro, Tokyo, Japan. Poured into a pint class. Awesome chocolate foam and a thick, wonderful mouthfeel to this, but it really lets me down as far as "bourbon barrel stouts" go. There was not much in the nose to excite, and while the taste was pleasant, I was hoping for more. I enjoyed this beer, but it would not make my top rankings of barrel-aged stouts.

I picked up a case for the restaurant that I work for after going to a trade show where AVBC was showing this off. At first I was kind of dismissive because there are a lot of these Bourbon Barrel Stouts showing up and i just logged it away with another one trick pony like some of the rest. So I visited a few other tables and then found myself standing back in front of this display, so I gave in. The nose was all Wild Turkey, that sweet, warm, toasty smell. I fully prepared myself for the same on the palate and was so delighted to have this delicious, delightfully bitter stout greet my taste buds. the finish is long and that is where the Wild Turkey showed up again. I am usually more open minded to beer and I immediately kicked myself for initially passing this one over. So I would say overall this a joy of a brew that I immediately ordered so that I had it available for myself whenever I want it.

It's a good beer, but very bland indeed. I have had trader joe's stout that had better/intense aroma and flavor than this beer. The smell is aromatic, but not at the same level as other barrel stouts I have tried. I will give this beer a try again to make sure that this review I am posting is sane and by no means I was biased in this review.
