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 @ Party Source / Bellevue KY --- Nearly opaque dark brown color, beige rim head, thin streaks of lace that drop back in the drink. Aroma of malt and bourbon. Taste is carbonated malt with the addition of alcohol on the swallow. I smell the bourbon, but I don’t taste it. Actually a simple brew, easy enough to quaff, but not memorable.

doradobotella (145) - Madrid, SPAIN - JAN 27, 2015
Apariencia: De un opaco color negro coronado por una capa de espuma bastante efímera. Aroma: Intenso carácter licoroso, pero bastante agradable; se aprecian maltas torrefactas, vainilla, bourbon y café. Sabor: Muy intenso a café, de amargor moderado y con notas que recuerdan a vainilla, caramelo y ligeramente a bourbon.

Franckg (315) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Arômes de café et de sucre. On perçoit aussi une touche d’alcool. Goût de café et chocolat au lait. Le côté bourbon est assez subtil et le tout est assez léger pour une bière de ce calibre. La finale s’étire sur des effluves d’anis, de chocolat et d’expresso.

reebtogi (4573) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
355ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light brown head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and coffee with some bourbon notes. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain and coffee bitterness finishing with bourbon. Body is a little thin for the style. but this is still somewhat tasty and worth tasting.

williamstome (1212) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2015

Fratto (2803) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle from Bankston. Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, booze, and wood. Taste is coffee, chocolate, roasted grain, and a nice woody spice finish.

Underdogs88 (240) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Notes of coffee and chocolate on the nose. Appearance is dark brown with a small almost none existent head. Coffee dominants the flavor. The oak flavor is way in the background. The malt flavor has notes of chocolate and is one dimensional. Hop bitterness is medium low. Mouthfeel is medium with a low level of carbonation. Overall, the beer lacks the aroma and flavor expected from an oak aged stout. Malt flavor is one dimensional and the hop bitterness is too low. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
