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.

Bottle. Deep, dark brown, almost black. Not much head. Aroma is a rich wonderful coffee smell with a touch of chocolate. Taste is a very tasty coffee taste also with a touch of chocolate.

Bottle shared at a local tasting, pours black with a thin brown head, the aroma has a little bit of coffee and chocolate but was pretty light, the barrel doesn’t really come through at all, the flavor has a little bit of chocolate on the front end with some of the bourbon and vanilla in the sweetness, not bad but nothing great, I can’t believe people buy this stuff for $12 a 4 pack.

This is a mild a very drinkable stout. Dark appearance with a small head. Mild flavors of chocolate and roasted coffee. Light body for a stout.

HighlanderOne (1047) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Poured from bottle. Great aroma of coffee, honey and malt. Jet black with hardly any head. The coffee and the bourbon and malt go surprisingly well together. My only gripe is a somewhat watery feel. Don’t taste the alcohol at all. Coffee isn’t overpowering either. With a little tweaking this could be outstanding.

Nice aroma of coffee and toffee with a hint of bourbon aged aroma. Flavor is food but a little mild and left me wanting a little kick. Had four pack from Holmes.

Doghair (278) - Illinois, USA - OCT 14, 2013
Dark brown with a little light foam. Nice roasted malt and coffee aroma but I don’t get any bourbon. Taste is roasty malt, bourbon, caramel and some coffee. The bourbon isn’t as pronounced the Ale. Nice barrel aged stout. Enjoyable.

Ughsmash (7265) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottled. Poured medium-deep brown with a short-lived, toasted tan head. The aroma picked up sweet-ish, light-moderately roasted coffee paired with slightly rough bourbon and charred oak.. more coffee than anything else, and it was just OK. The flavor found similar stuff, but it worked a little better.. roasty coffee throughout, with mild accents of sweet bourbon and vanilla.. lightly tangy oak laced throughout.. finished very dry with a nice hit of coffee. Medium-bodied at most on the palate, and a tad thin overall.. low-moderate carbonation.. this needed a bit more substance or dimensions.

Black, Medium body, flat mouthfeel, rather watery, Low bitterness, sweet, unbalanced, Flavor reminds one of a flat cola, Disappointing. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle - Pours black with a thin light tan head. Nose is coffee, dark malt, and chocolate. Surprisingly pretty dry. Taste is stale coffee, lightly sweet, with charcoal notes. Really thin body, with medium carbonation.
