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.

AdamChandler (3783) - 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 (67) - 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

chinchill (3220) - South Carolina, USA - FEB 8, 2015
12oz bottle allowed to warm to about 50F then served in a snifter. A: A very dark ruby-brown that is black in the glass but with reddish highlights at the edges when held up to the light. It starts with about a finger of light khaki head that quickly settles to a ring. Aroma: Vanilla, roasted malts, light coffee, toasted bread, bourbon barrel and faint chocolate. Aroma is the strong point of this ale. Flavor: lightly sweet. Bourbon barrel adds some vanilla, toffee, faint wood and, of course, bourbon. aftertaste Feel: Carbonation is low. Body is medium. Smooth but with a light astringency. Some warming. Overall: a good ale but only average, at best, for a Bourbon Barrel Stout.

Coffee, Hints of caramel, touch of bourbon. A bit underwhelming overall, but definitely good. Just not worth 12 dollars for four 355 ml bottles.

rondphoto (3029) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - FEB 3, 2015
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.
