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®.

The result is a complex stout with dark-roasted malts, hints of caramel and vanilla and a lightly roasted coffee finish.

DSG (8346) - Tel Aviv, - JAN 9, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks zvikar. Clear dark brown, transparent in front of light, with a small tan head. Aroma of lots of coffee, some bourbon, vanilla, caramel and a bit of chocolate. Sweet flavor, caramelly, with coffee beans, some roast and a bit of vanilla. Medium-bodied, quite light for the stale. Decent.

egajdzis (5550) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 8, 2015
Opaque black with a small, tan head that left no lacing on the glass. Aroma or roasted malt, char, cocoa, wood, and light bourbon. Taste of dark chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, wood, and light bourbon. Not bad, just nothing special about this one.

Bottle. While I love bourbon stouts this is probably the worst out there. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll drink it all night long but the taste pales compared to Goose Island and others. Limited malt, sweetness, and bourbon flavor. The bud of bourbon stouts.

Pours very dark brown, with tan head. A bit thinner than many of this type. Aroma is rich, mainly of coffee. Taste is of malt and bourbon barrel, with little complexity. However, it is quite tasty and very drinkable. Thumbs up.

Nische (1158) - Saltsjö-Boo, SWEDEN - DEC 29, 2014
Dark brown with a tan head. Coffee aromas with hints of oak. Somewhat light mouth feel, a bit watery. Coffee, butterscotch and bourbon flavors, sweet and sappy.

wittz (43) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 24, 2014
Tölgyfa-íz kivehető. Finoman simul bele a 8%-os alkoholtartalom. Kávéssága nem penetráns, sokkal inkább kellemesen vizes. Nem tolakodó, de nem is visszafogott. Habja gyorsan elillan, íze állhatatos.

kapusil (771) - HUNGARY - DEC 18, 2014
Bottled. Almost pitch black body, instantly disappearing light brown head. Aroma and taste of coffee, chocolate and hints of dark rum (I guess it’s bourbon, but it totally reminds me of rum). Very smooth mouthfeel. I like it.
