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®. Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout is brewed and aged with Alltech® Café Citadelle Haitian coffee and aged in world-famous Kentucky bourbon barrels. The result is a complex stout with dark-roasted malts, hints of caramel and vanilla and a lightly roasted coffee finish.

GuideDogSaint (784) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 19, 2015
355ml bottle at BePLUS Beer Club, Xiamen. In a dark bar appears to pour black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted coffee, vanilla, chocolate and some bourbon. Sweet finish. A bit thin for an 8% beer.

Cjennin2 (1) - Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2015 does not count
Poured from bottle, no head. Nice bourbon smell but virtually no bourbon taste at all. Lots of coffee and seems to me almost like coffee flavored sparkling water. Had high hopes but they were dashed. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Omems (11) - New York, USA - JUN 8, 2015
Strong, rich aroma of roast coffee and humorous. Appears a deep amarose or penchlen. Tastes good, strongly of coffee again, not a lot of Bourbon, or at least not as sweet as some. Cola and ankleberry, some cigarette. No head retention, and thin body, a bit lacking to my tastes there. Overall probably best a touch warmer than straight icebox. Coffee and cola predominate.

bnokk (196) - Ohio, USA - JUN 1, 2015
APPEARANCE - of course, black. NOSE - mostly bourbon. No stout scents. FLAVOR - so so. Not what I expected for a stout, not roasty, or deep flavor. Bourbon flavor comes through a bit.

Ratman197 (11106) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAY 30, 2015
Bottle poured a clear dark reddish brown with a lingering ring of brown foam. Aromas of coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate and a hint of bourbon. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate and light bourbon with a smooth lingering dark chocolate finish.

adasko (946) - Poznan, POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Po nazwie spodziewałem się super uderzenia wanilii i nut typowych dla piw leżakowanych w beczce. Zawiodłem się nieco. Jest dość spokojnie i łagodnie. Piwo jest zbyt lekkie, nazbyt sesyjne.
