Bourbon Barrel Stout is an American stout from the Anderson Valley Brewing Company. It’s a malt beverage aged in Wild Turkey Bourbon Barrels. It’s a winning combination anytime you combine beer with another alcohol, as far as I’m concerned. It has a smoky aroma, exactly like what you’d expect and hope for. You get whiffs of whiskey, chocolate malt, toasted malt, with a little hint of vanilla and oatmeal cookies. It’s really creamy and smooth and drinkable. I taste chocolate and caramel malts primarily, with sweet molasses, roasted coffee, oak, and just a hint of bourbon. It has a 6.9% alcohol content, enough to keep you warmed up on a cold night. It’s a delicious beer and worth getting again.
