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

This pours a cola color with cocoa foam. I found it had a somewhat prominent, albeit light, rootbeer aroma and a muddled bourbon and rootbeer aftertaste. Thin mouthfeel for what it promises.

Honestly tastes like a watered down bourbon. Not a whole lot like beer.
