COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Carefully crafted by Alltech’s master brewers, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout® builds on the success of its barrel-aged brother, the beloved Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale®. Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout is brewed and aged with Alltech® Café Citadelle Haitian coffee and aged in world-famous Kentucky bourbon barrels. The result is a complex stout with dark-roasted malts, hints of caramel and vanilla and a lightly roasted coffee finish.

Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark black pour with thin to almost no tan head, aroma brought notes of coffee, roast, some woody notes, hints of ash, slight caramel in there. Taste is a mix of caramel, toffee, coffee, some slight roast, wood, into a bit of vanilla, finishing bitter, dry, watery. Eh.

Sort, ugennemsig. Tykt, cremet, lysebrunt skum. Aroma: lakrids og kaffe. Ditto smag. Fyldig, cremet. Fad og bourbon tydelig i eftersmag, men alkohol virker sprittet.

Bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Dissipates pretty quickly. Aromas of roasted malts, honey, vanilla, wood, chocolate, and some booze. Coffee, chocolate, and vanilla for the flavor. Smooth and easy to drink. Little light in body and flavors are muted. Decent but forgettable.

Pours to a dark brown/black cola colored body. A thin head. The aroma is simply coffee. Not much but coffee. Unfortunately not complex. The flavor is coffee and light vanilla. Medium body with a lingering over-sweetness.

Secret Krampus beer #8, thanks Peter. How could a mass produced bourbon stout be of Krampus quality? [:39]

Pours black with some fine beige head that thins out quickly. Not bad though it’s a big stout, I’m thinking there should be some more retention. The aroma is Ashy Larry status with some metal and wood. Very burnt, very not good. Flavor is more of the same but more painful. This is roasted malt extract with a hint of wood, licorice, and a couple of nickels. Moderately thick body, very low drinkability. It’s like a charred wood infused coffee. Ugh.

Overall, this beer is okay for the indicated style. Nothing stands out within the nose or the palate -especially for a stout being aged on bourbon barrels- that wouldn’t be present otherwise in any other typical stout. Standard malt, bitterness, and alcohol flavors abound, not much oak, vanilla, caramel, or toffee flavors that would be present with some age on bourbon. Very flat for what its supposed to be.

Pours dark with an off-white head. Roast malt and coffee aromas. I’m liking the bourbon taste, adding complexity. Solid stout.

Surlyguy81 (8) - Minnesota, USA - JAN 25, 2014 does not count
Pours dark black, nice coffee aroma with a hint of vanilla. Complex flavors with a dark malt, vanilla, charred bourbon barrel comes through, I don’t get the whiskey until it warmed up a bit. Body is a bit light for me when it comes to bourbon stouts but not bad.

A really tasty stout. Aroma definitely contains the smell of the bourbon barrel. Pours very dark. Taste of coffee and chocolate with overtones of bourbon. Nice beer.

Here’s to Kentucky bourbon and Kentucky beer. Dark pour with bourbon and vanilla drifting up the nose. Not overwhelming in the taste like some bourbon barrel beers. Coffee, malt and bourbon make a good taste combination.
