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.

12 oz. bottle from Top Shelf Brews at a good price. Black color with no head and soft carbonation. Aroma is deep roasted coffee beans and chocolate.

Flavor starts with a nice strong roasted coffee bean. Caramel and very light barrel notes follow the strong coffee. The body is real thin and hurts the overall mouthfeel. I get barrel but no true bourbon notes. I really thought I would taste bourbon. If this brewery doubles up the body and can extract more bourbon from the barrel they would really have something with this. Still quaffable for a stout drinker, nice lingering coffee bean.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein sehr dunkelbraunes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch holzig, röstmalzig, Vanille, Kaffee. Geschmack röstmalzig, bittere Schokolade, Kaffee, Holzfassgeschmack.

Pours near black with thin beige head. Has the aroma of roasted coffee beans and cocoa. Taste is coffee, chocolate, rotated malt, smoke and a hint of Bourbon. Decent

TomTron (355) - Aiken, South Carolina, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Coffee black pour with a head that lasted all of 5 seconds. Burnt malt aroma and some chocolate notes. More malty sweetness in the flavor with some slight coffee grounds coming through but rather tame. Most impressive thing about this is that if you told me it was 5% instead of 8%, I’d believe you. Other than that this is just another run-of-the-mill, phantom-boozy stout.

Erzengel (1901) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - MAR 15, 2014
The beer starts smooth, very smooth and slightly malty. The mainpart is smooth, easy to drink with hints of the Bourbon Barrels. But there could be more wood. The aftertaste is long, malty, slightly roasted and slightly bitter and very smooth. The 8% are not tastable.
A very great beer! But could be a bit more intense roasted. --> 12/13/13/13

Bottle from Hop City, Atlanta. Pours a translucent brown, very little head. Aroma coffee, smoke, peaty. Body slight, almost citric tang. Meh. Kind of disappointing, I feel like roasty character is too strong.

Opaque dark brown beer, tidy pale tan head. Palate is light, semi dry and a little crisp. Milky sweet malt with a trace of dark chocolate. Light bourbon and a whisper of bubblegum ester. Light dry finish, dark chocolate aftertaste. Somewhat of a clumsy ba stout but it’s okay.

I’m shocked this beer isn’t in the 90’s. Good, uniquely sweet and balanced ale.
