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.

Pours dark with an off-white head. Roast malt and coffee aromas. I’m liking the bourbon taste, adding complexity. Solid stout.

Pours dark black, nice coffee aroma with a hint of vanilla. Complex flavors with a dark malt, vanilla, charred bourbon barrel comes through, I don’t get the whiskey until it warmed up a bit. Body is a bit light for me when it comes to bourbon stouts but not bad.

A really tasty stout. Aroma definitely contains the smell of the bourbon barrel. Pours very dark. Taste of coffee and chocolate with overtones of bourbon. Nice beer.

Acknud (1074) - Morganfield, Kentucky, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Here’s to Kentucky bourbon and Kentucky beer. Dark pour with bourbon and vanilla drifting up the nose. Not overwhelming in the taste like some bourbon barrel beers. Coffee, malt and bourbon make a good taste combination.

Pours a dark brown, a little bit of light can be seen through the edges with a small khaki colored head. There is not much smell to it besides malts and a bit of coffee, it also taste of this and a bit of sweetness and caramel as it warms up.

unclemattie (4035) - Georgia, USA - JAN 19, 2014
12oz bottle. Black pour, force carbonated, no head. Ugh, huge nose of whiskey barrel. Smells of burn & roasted malts. Charred aroma with big alcohol. Initially it has a flavor if rancid coconut water & coffee roast. Then loads of char, even more flavors of coffee, green coffee, bourbon vanilla, oak chips, roasted burnt malts. (3945)

aleigator (92) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2014
Bottle from Gendarmenmarkt. Nearly no foam, pitch black color. Chocolate, toffee and smoky whiskey, alcoholic bourbon aroma is very present. Has an medium body with an oily, slick mouthfeel. Espresso flavor, going along with heavy bourbon, highlighting an usual aggressive alcoholic presence for a stout. Feathered by chocolate flavors, soon getting overpowered by an upcoming bitterness in the end. Also unusual high carbonation, with a metallic hint in it. Strong coffee finish, but not very long lasting.
