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®.

The result is a complex stout with dark-roasted malts, hints of caramel and vanilla and a lightly roasted coffee finish.

Bottle courtesy of Pedro. Pours a deep brown, not quite black, thin diminishing tan head and spots of lace.Nose of coffee, roast, faint vanilla, and chocolate malt. Surprising light body, some coffee bitterness. I didn’t really care for it.

DocJitsu (1153) - Florida, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Nearly impenetrable to light. Very dark with carbonation bubbles migrating around the sides to perpetuate a thin tan ring. Mild fruit and coffee on the nose. Texture isn’t off putting, but it doesn’t have the richness one would expect. Flavors of freezer burn, tart fruit, tobacco, and coffee. Mild flavors for a barrel aged imperial.

puboflyons (2362) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 11, 2014
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. The pour is dark brown to near black with a short-lived head. The aroma is overpowered by the bourbon which smells more like wine. But once I wince my way through that I do get a milder dark malt or chocolate feel. Lighter to medium body. The taste is a bit better than the aroma with a slightly more notable chocolate flavor. But all in all this comes across as quite sour; more so than other stouts.

Bottle - Bought Aug 2013; BBE undated; Drank Dec 2013 - Very Dark Brown in colour. Malty; roasted malts, coffee, caramel, vanilla and a little dark chocolate. Light Bourbon notes. Overall quite sweet. OK. Easy drinking. Wouldn’t have guessed it is an Impy Stout. Decent enough.

Experiment_Ale (1072) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 27, 2013
With Taylor on draft at the blind tiger. Pours boring black with no head. Aroma is chunky roasted malt, some rough bourbon. Taste is water, rough roasted malt and an off coffee.

jaghana (4380) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - DEC 27, 2013
Bottle 355ml, a dark beer with good head. Nose is on dark chocolate, aroma is not agressive at all, smooth and delicate, light wood notes, almost no hops, caramel and dark chocolate touch, alcohol is well hidden, easy drinkable.

BVery (7438) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2013
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.
