COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barrels that once contained world-famous Kentucky Bourbon lend a sweet hint of caramel and vanilla to dark-roasted malts and finish with the essence of a lightly roasted coffee. The barrel-aged flavors native to Kentucky compliment this complex stout brewed and aged with Haitian coffee to create the bourbon country’s own Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout.

Bottle. Nice dark dense looking pour. Pretty weak effort here though - touch of sour fruit on the nose, no way that was intended. Slight tart taste to go along with some mild roast. It is not a bad beer, but it completely misses the advertised mark.

A nice average hight IBV brew. Dark with very fast fading head. Coffee aroma, not much bourbon barrel but coffee is prominant. Very nice beer on tongue which is creamy not thick. Enjoyable. Much much better than the ale. not sour nice coffee flavor.

I really enjoyed this, much more than the ale. If it was creamier, I think this beer would be epic. Strong bourbon flavors in a dark, rich stout. Nice beer!

Bottle from BottleSelect.com. Pours very dark brown with a creamy/bubbly tan head. Aroma is primarily dark coffee. Must be espresso! Full bodied or better - if possible. The coffee is so extreme. There are hints of oak and bourbon, and cool burnt malt. But this is so xtreme with coffee, it deserves to be evaluated against the Brewdog Paradox series - in terms of impact. Wowser! Memo to self: resume chewing coffee beans.

Black brown pour with tan head and lace. Aroma of vanilla and roasty coffee. Flavor is vanilla, BB, and coffee. Medium body with good carbonation. pretty good beer

Bottle, thanks sevenhokie! Aroma is sweet caramel malt, bourbon and some coffee. Pours black with a good light brown head with good retention and excellent lacing. Sweet caramel malt with bourbon notes to start. Finishes smooth with a hint of coffee on the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nellycale (209) - Caledonia, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2013
From bottle. Pours a dark black hue with a light brown head that dissolves with some lacing. Aroma of whiskey, coffee, sour milk, dark roasted malts. Taste mainly of coffee and sweet lactose, bourbon, vanilla.little chocolate and raisins. A little bitter ion the finish. A lighter body for a imperial stout. Fairly carbonated. Good but was expecting a lot more from this imperial stout. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Una birra che colpisce molto per il suo torbato esplosivo che lascia sul palato e la lingua tracce di bourbon con note di vaniglia e cacao. Poco carbonata e corposa, scende molto bene anche se l’alcolico del bourbon non risulta indifferente. Calorosamente consigliato l’assaggio.

On tap at Jockstraps. Thin midnight pour. Aroma is dark caramel malt, oaky, and bourbon. Thin palate with nice robust bourbon and wood flavor, but the chocolate malt is thin. Nice bourbon barrel character, but the stout itself is a bit flat.
