A super dark brown in color with a thin tan head. Aromas of vanilla and charred oak. Taste begins with some sweet grain, then some oak, after that is some vanilla. A hint of earthy bitterness in the finish. Mouth feel is a little light, but not too bad. Overall quite good. Not as rich as some bourbon barrel stouts, but not as high alcohol either. I will definitely get it again.

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.

This is my third Anderson Valley review, had this on tap at the Village Anchor. Outstanding, almost definitely the best beer of this kind that I've had. Heavy smoke, brown sugar, and, of course, bourbon flavor. Incredible bourbon and coffee aroma. If you like bourbon ales, I can't think if anything better on a chilly night. Only drawback is the price. Usually I don't invest this much for a beer, but this time it might've been worth it.

Bottle. Aroma is strange to me for the style. Lots of vanilla, caramel, toffee on the nose. Poured jet black with an inch thick light tan head that dissipated quickly. Taste is exactly like the nose, vanilla, caramel, toffee. Didn’t get much roasted malt and seemed a little light for a stout. Finish just drops out. Decent but not my favorite.
