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.

Draft @ Titanic Brewing. Pours clear dark brown color with tan head. Aromas of roasted malt with a hint of bourbon. Roasted malt and light bourbon flavor with very little barrel character if any at all. Medium body with average carbonation.

czar (5839) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 23, 2015
pours unclear medium dark brown, red tint, with a reviving light beige cap, minimal retention and lacing. stale coffee, roasted grains, roasted acidity - almost tart; citrus, pine, booze, plain dark malts akin to a poor black ipa, spicy berries, tons of pepper, cigarette buts, hint of vanilla. light carboantion, light body - slightly watery - clearly lacking for style; acrid and ashy-coffee finish. disgusting.

AdamChandler (3743) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 16, 2015
12oz bottle, split 2 ways at fridge temp. Pour is pretty dark but not pitch black. 1 finger head that fades to nothing. lots of coffee aroma, roasted malts a bit of chocolate, almost any barrel. This is just not good. sweet, fake pretty bland. almost no mouthfeel at all. tiny barrel presence, very weak. sadly, not good.

hoplover66 (65) - Barcelona, SPAIN - FEB 14, 2015
Espuma cremosa que desaparece rápidamente. Aroma de café, licor. Sabor tostado, café, alcohol, especias, se intuye un poco la madera del bourbon. Poco cuerpo, carbonatación baja. Postgusto bastante breve más bien dulce. No está mal, pero el precio es elevado para lo que ofrece.

Gearz (51) - Maryland, USA - FEB 10, 2015
Poured from bottle. Lovely jet black color with no head. Coffee taste immediately up front but completely lacks any bourbon or boozey after-taste that should follow a bourbon barrel aged beer. As a matter of fact, this tastes little more than cold coffee! Wouldn't drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
