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.

Aroma is a chocolate malt with some coffee grounds. Taste is strongly coffee with a hint of bourbon. Overall a really good blend.

Franckg (128) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
Arômes de café et de sucre. On perçoit aussi une touche d’alcool. Goût de café et chocolat au lait. Le côté bourbon est assez subtil et le tout est assez léger pour une bière de ce calibre. La finale s’étire sur des effluves d’anis, de chocolat et d’expresso.

reebtogi (4437) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 23, 2015
355ml bottle pours black in color with a finger of light brown head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and coffee with some bourbon notes. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a roasted grain and coffee bitterness finishing with bourbon. Body is a little thin for the style. but this is still somewhat tasty and worth tasting.

williamstome (1035) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Black pour, small offwhite head. Aroma of dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla and oak. Similar flavor with roasty notes. Silky smooth.

Fratto (2700) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Bottle from Bankston. Dark pour with a brown head. Aroma is chocolate, booze, and wood. Taste is coffee, chocolate, roasted grain, and a nice woody spice finish.

Underdogs88 (179) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 22, 2015
Notes of coffee and chocolate on the nose. Appearance is dark brown with a small almost none existent head. Coffee dominants the flavor. The oak flavor is way in the background. The malt flavor has notes of chocolate and is one dimensional. Hop bitterness is medium low. Mouthfeel is medium with a low level of carbonation. Overall, the beer lacks the aroma and flavor expected from an oak aged stout. Malt flavor is one dimensional and the hop bitterness is too low. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

nj_BierMaven (116) - Flemington, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Bottle pours opaque black into the glass, thin off-white head. Aroma of bitter coffee and roasted barley. Head quickly dissipates, some vanilla and caramel notes. Something reminiscent of turpentine in the finish? Good, but for the money I like others better.

This was a nice surprise. Very toasty to start with chocolate and a vanilla/oak finish. Very tasty.

An incredible stout with superb aroma, appearance, finish and taste. I recommend this beer to any stout lover. On par with New Holland’s "Dragon’s Milk."

Stew41 (1770) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 16, 2015
Light and maybe even a touch simple for the style. Coca and chocolate linings in the mouth; surprisingly it takes a chill very well indeed (summer drinking?). Sweet wood late.

dmac (4274) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 10, 2015
12oz bottle from Manahawkin Spirits. Poured a medium density pitch black under a smaller tight foamy off white head. Aroma started off with vegetable notes but luckily that quickly faded and didn’t return. Other notes of burnt wood, light bourbon, charcoal, raosty, burnt malts, burnt toast and some vanilla extract. The body is odd, it seems like a thin mouthfeel at first but as you swallow it becomes more of a medium body, strong carbonation for a BA beer and at the very end comes the alcohol heat. Flavor is actually a little weaker than the aroma. Notes of charcoal, burnt wood, light bourbon and a touch of vanilla and dark chocolate.
