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

AMAZING stout, if you're a fan of bourbon, or a fan of the rich malty stout, this is the one for you, pours thick and black with a dark head.

I am not a stout drinker at all, but the thought of chocolate in a bourbon barrel was intriguing, and what a bad thing it would have been if I hadn't tried this delicious brew! I keep hoping someone else will have it on tap, when it is, I am gonna buy a couple of growlers, and believe me, they won't last!

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.
