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.

GIJOE (583) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Pours black with a thin, tan head that fades to ring quickly. Nose is dark-roasted malt with notes of coffee and vanilla. Taste is somewhat sweet, but pleasant. Medium to full mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Cocoa finish. Good brew.

Lore (994) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 3, 2014
dark brown colour, moderate beige head;aroma of coffee, earth, whisky and some herbal notes; taste of coffee, earth, and some burnt malt; definitely the worst imperial stout I’ve ever tasted

kirk36 (112) - Peabody, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2014
Deep-water hiding a Malaysian Airlines flight 370 in total blackness. As I near the bottom, I hope to uncover the secret of the disappearance! But alas, yes this coffee-beer stout is espresso dark. Alcohol snifter and forward on the palette, it expedites leaving some bitter and a slight dark roast in your cheek. The coffee is overwhelming the bourbon. I love the bourbon ale produced by Kentucky so I had the same expectations in this. But as the description reads true to form, vanilla and coffee. Boring. Bring forth the bourbon in this barrel-aged-wasted beer stout thingy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

htzpah (76) - - APR 27, 2014
Heavily medicinal aroma. Coffee flavors are almost overpowering; the taste is completely one of coffee and whiskey (maybe they should’ve called this stout "Irish Coffee"). Needs to be enjoyed with a meal; doesn’t work well as a standalone sipper.

hohops (217) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2014
Bottle into a snifter. Appearance is black, a very small fizzy head which diminishes instantly. Aroma- lots of chocolate, milky coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla, hint of coconut. Taste- coffee, chocolate, bitterness, cocoa, hint of bourbon but not too much, nutty hints, medium to full mouthfeel. Very tasty.

HMPR (5) - - APR 22, 2014 does not count
Lovely coffee stout. Bourbon aged but doesn’t give a hugely distinctive bourbon flavour, dominated by the Haitian coffee flavour. Doesn’t pour with a great head but a lovely coffee stout none the less.

Deu (681) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 2014
bottle - Pours near black with a minimal tan head. It has an aroma of roast chocolate malt and bourbon. The flavor is sweet with chocolate and mild bourbon. It’s surprisingly light bodied, grainny, even watery, with low carbonation and roast character that lingers in the finish. I had hoped for more...

Sizzler80 (447) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 18, 2014
Mahogany pour with an average sized beige head. Roasted malt, bourbon, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, chicory. Again a lot more carbonation than there should be in a stout, although it’s a decent drop.

wlajwl (3763) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - APR 12, 2014
Aroma is bourbon/fruit and a background of roasted malts. The flavor is bourbon/fruit, roasted malts, a background of coffee and a mildly acidic/tangy/slightly alcoholic finish.

MadRobin (1854) - Silver Spring, USA - APR 10, 2014
On tap at Spacebar in Falls Church, VA. Opaque, dark mahogany with a small khaki head and fair lacing. Aroma of coffee, caramel, vanilla, milk chocolate and hints of bourbon. Taste of chocolate, coffee, caramel, charred malt, vanilla and precious little bourbon. Medium body and medium/low carbonization. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
