Aged for three months in Wild Turkey® Bourbon barrels, this luxurious stout has a deep ebony hue and a beautiful mahogany head.

On draft at R.Davidson Chophouse, Tuscaloosa, AL.

Pour a deep brown, almost black, with a beige finger of foam that slowly diminishes and leaves heavy lace in its wake.

The nose has an oakey, malty predominance initially. Hints of dark roast coffee balance a really nice emergence of chocolate after you give the beer a minute to open up.

Predominantly sweet, subtle oak flavors play nicely together. A strong malt presence lingers, and I was hoping for just a bit more barrel presence. Very good, but lacking just a little on the adjuncts.

Nice mouthfeel, if not a tad thin. Sticky finish, but a good creamy beer with a nice warmth down the back end.

Nice full body look and smooth taste. Had a lighter taste of bourbon which I thought was great! For the amount of alcohol content it was very smooth.

Really enjoyed on tap on West coast, found it got better as it warmed a bit. Surprising to find in bottle on east coast, and it is very good, even paired with a turkey BBQ on a cool rainy day
