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

Wow! This is an incredibly complex beer that manages to unite two of my favorite beverages. The nose is heavy on vanilla with a hint of cocoa. A mouthful of this beer starts with the appropriate stout dark malts and moves to a very enjoyable bourbon finish. The undertones of oak, milk chocolate and coffee combine to create a very unique taste experience. This is easily one of the best beers I've tasted in the last year.

Cant stand Wild turkey so I was skeptical, however this beer hit all the right notes for me. Bourbon ties perfectly with the Blarney Flats body and flavor. That's some Bahl Hornin!!

look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 1 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.75

look: dark, but nothing notable
smell: best part about it
taste: the Wild Turkey (is there a worse bourbon?) overpowers any other flavors that may have been present..makes it a vile concoction that ruins your palate.
feel: like sitting in the woods knocking back some bad hooch just to get drunk when you were a teenager.

overall: There are just way too many bourbon barrel aged beers to waste your time on this one. If this is your first and you like it, all the others are better.
