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.

A bit of bourbon in the smell, but more of sweet coffee and vanilla in the taste. The alcohol content is very well hidden by the sweetness. Very good beer, much smoother and less punishing than some others in the imperial stout category.

Deu (668) - Nantes, FRANCE - APR 20, 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, grainny, even watery, with low carbonation and roast character that lingers in the finish. I had hoped for more...

Sizzler80 (423) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 18, 2014
Mahogany pour with an average sized beige head. Roasted malt, bourbon, chocolate, coffee, vanilla, chicory. Again a lot more carbonation than there should be in a stout, although it’s a decent drop.

HellesBunny666 (77) - Virginia, USA - APR 8, 2014
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.

Aromas of milk chocolate, butter, milk fat. Black with a lasting satiny khaki head. A little sweet, some roast, grapey, subtle strawberry soda. Medium bodied, smooth, carbonation is refreshing. Some weird flavors, potential diacetyl going on.
