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 countryís own Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout.

Bottle. Pours black with a tan head. Dissipates pretty quickly. Aromas of roasted malts, honey, vanilla, wood, chocolate, and some booze. Coffee, chocolate, and vanilla for the flavor. Smooth and easy to drink. Little light in body and flavors are muted. Decent but forgettable.

Pours to a dark brown/black cola colored body. A thin head. The aroma is simply coffee. Not much but coffee. Unfortunately not complex. The flavor is coffee and light vanilla. Medium body with a lingering over-sweetness.

Secret Krampus beer #8, thanks Peter. How could a mass produced bourbon stout be of Krampus quality? [:39]

Pours black with some fine beige head that thins out quickly. Not bad though itís a big stout, Iím thinking there should be some more retention. The aroma is Ashy Larry status with some metal and wood. Very burnt, very not good. Flavor is more of the same but more painful. This is roasted malt extract with a hint of wood, licorice, and a couple of nickels. Moderately thick body, very low drinkability. Itís like a charred wood infused coffee. Ugh.

Overall, this beer is okay for the indicated style. Nothing stands out within the nose or the palate -especially for a stout being aged on bourbon barrels- that wouldnít be present otherwise in any other typical stout. Standard malt, bitterness, and alcohol flavors abound, not much oak, vanilla, caramel, or toffee flavors that would be present with some age on bourbon. Very flat for what its supposed to be.

Pours dark with an off-white head. Roast malt and coffee aromas. Iím 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 donít 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.

Hereís 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.

Draft. Dark brown with a light tan head. Chocolate, coffee and bourbon cone through. Not bad.

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.
