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.

Drank from my Mane liquor tulip

A - Pours a deep cola colour with a tanned head that reduces to a film

S - Molasses, wood oak and bourbon

T - Up front some nice bourbon notes, followed by some vanilla the finish is molasses and booze

M - Medium to full body with low carbonation

O - A little thin in body to be a heavy hitting BA stout. The carbonation is also a little too much. The finish is also rather uninspring
