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.

This was a nice surprise. Very toasty to start with chocolate and a vanilla/oak finish. Very tasty.

An incredible stout with superb aroma, appearance, finish and taste. I recommend this beer to any stout lover. On par with New Holland’s "Dragon’s Milk."

Light and maybe even a touch simple for the style. Coca and chocolate linings in the mouth; surprisingly it takes a chill very well indeed (summer drinking?). Sweet wood late.

12oz bottle from Manahawkin Spirits. Poured a medium density pitch black under a smaller tight foamy off white head. Aroma started off with vegetable notes but luckily that quickly faded and didn’t return. Other notes of burnt wood, light bourbon, charcoal, raosty, burnt malts, burnt toast and some vanilla extract. The body is odd, it seems like a thin mouthfeel at first but as you swallow it becomes more of a medium body, strong carbonation for a BA beer and at the very end comes the alcohol heat. Flavor is actually a little weaker than the aroma. Notes of charcoal, burnt wood, light bourbon and a touch of vanilla and dark chocolate.

DSG (6489) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks zvikar. Clear dark brown, transparent in front of light, with a small tan head. Aroma of lots of coffee, some bourbon, vanilla, caramel and a bit of chocolate. Sweet flavor, caramelly, with coffee beans, some roast and a bit of vanilla. Medium-bodied, quite light for the stale. Decent.

Opaque black with a small, tan head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma or roasted malt, char, cocoa, wood, and light bourbon. Taste of dark chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, wood, and light bourbon. Not bad, just nothing special about this one.

Bottle. While I love bourbon stouts this is probably the worst out there. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll drink it all night long but the taste pales compared to Goose Island and others. Limited malt, sweetness, and bourbon flavor. The bud of bourbon stouts.

Not a good stout. Stay away from this beer. ........................ . .....

Pours very dark brown, with tan head. A bit thinner than many of this type. Aroma is rich, mainly of coffee. Taste is of malt and bourbon barrel, with little complexity. However, it is quite tasty and very drinkable. Thumbs up.

Nische (933) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2014
Dark brown with a tan head. Coffee aromas with hints of oak. Somewhat light mouth feel, a bit watery. Coffee, butterscotch and bourbon flavors, sweet and sappy.
