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.

From bottle. Black pour with a beige head. Aroma of coffee and roasted malts and a little bit of bourbon. Taste is similar, not too sweet, not too bitter. Mouthfeel is medium.

TizzleJizzle (628) - Garland, Texas, USA - MAY 16, 2014
American Craft Beer Week! 12 oz bottle at the Flying Saucer Garland. Poured an opaque black with a thin tan head. Taste of whiskey, roasted malts, and slight dark chocolate. High fizzy carbonation, medium simi-watery body.

sjohnny (398) - - MAY 15, 2014
Coffee, vanilla, booze aroma. Pours black with a thinnish tan head that fades quickly. Light bodied. Thin mouthfeel. Coffee bitterness countered with a fruit vanilla sweetness. Very slight whiskey flavor. Smells WAAY better than it tastes.

GIJOE (688) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - MAY 15, 2014
Pours black with a thin, tan head that fades to ring quickly. Nose is dark-roasted malt with notes of coffee and vanilla. Taste is somewhat sweet, but pleasant. Medium to full mouthfeel, lively carbonation. Cocoa finish. Good brew.

Lore (1224) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 3, 2014
dark brown colour, moderate beige head;aroma of coffee, earth, whisky and some herbal notes; taste of coffee, earth, and some burnt malt; definitely the worst imperial stout I’ve ever tasted

kirk36 (155) - Peabody, Massachusetts, USA - APR 29, 2014
UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 Deep-water hiding a Malaysian Airlines flight 370 in total blackness. As I near the bottom, I hope to uncover the secret of the disappearance! But alas, yes this coffee-beer stout is espresso dark. Alcohol snifter and forward on the palette, it expedites leaving some bitter and a slight dark roast in your cheek. The coffee is overwhelming the bourbon. I love the bourbon ale produced by Kentucky so I had the same expectations in this. But as the description reads true to form, vanilla and coffee. Boring. Bring forth the bourbon in this barrel-aged-wasted beer stout thingy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

htzpah (100) - - APR 27, 2014
Heavily medicinal aroma. Coffee flavors are almost overpowering; the taste is completely one of coffee and whiskey (maybe they should’ve called this stout "Irish Coffee"). Needs to be enjoyed with a meal; doesn’t work well as a standalone sipper.

hohops (369) - Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2014
Bottle into a snifter. Appearance is black, a very small fizzy head which diminishes instantly. Aroma- lots of chocolate, milky coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla, hint of coconut. Taste- coffee, chocolate, bitterness, cocoa, hint of bourbon but not too much, nutty hints, medium to full mouthfeel. Very tasty.

HMPR (5) - - APR 22, 2014 does not count
Lovely coffee stout. Bourbon aged but doesn’t give a hugely distinctive bourbon flavour, dominated by the Haitian coffee flavour. Doesn’t pour with a great head but a lovely coffee stout none the less.
