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.

Very sharp buttery and milk fat aromas. Tastes like milk chocolate, baking goods/brownies. Kinda oily feel, lingers for a while. Tastes like candy, tootsie rolls or chocolate caramels.

patrick767 (3590) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 30, 2014
bottle - Pours near black with a minimal tan head. It has an aroma of roast chocolate malt and bourbon. The flavor is sweet with chocolate and mild bourbon. It’s surprisingly light bodied, even watery, with low carbonation and roast character that lingers in the finish. Decent but I had hoped for more...

cheap (4204) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2014
On tap at the magic tree. Big and black. Roasted slightly burned aroma with some old shoe in there. Taste is rather mild and for a 8% it hides the alky well. Has a bite that grabs your attention but its not in yer face. Not as thick on the palate as most stouts. Just a little more than your typical light stout, perhaps its more like a porter. Barely any co2 but there is some in there. Overall a decent dark beer that you would never know is over 5%.

AirForceHops (3510) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 26, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Top Shelf Brews at a good price. Black color with no head and soft carbonation. Aroma is deep roasted coffee beans and chocolate.

Flavor starts with a nice strong roasted coffee bean. Caramel and very light barrel notes follow the strong coffee. The body is real thin and hurts the overall mouthfeel. I get barrel but no true bourbon notes. I really thought I would taste bourbon. If this brewery doubles up the body and can extract more bourbon from the barrel they would really have something with this. Still quaffable for a stout drinker, nice lingering coffee bean.
