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®.

dalepryor (305) - Paducah, Kentucky, USA - NOV 30, 2012
pours like coffee with some light shining through on the edges with a minimal head. aromas of coffee, vanilla, chocolate and slight coconut. the taste is very roasty with tons of coffee, I am not picking up a ton of bourbon but there is some vanilla present. Mouthfeel is pretty thin for a stout especially one at 8 percent abv. I am not saying this is bad but it is kind of weak for the style.

VT (1758) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - APR 26, 2015
355 ml bottle. Pours a ruby reddish black with a short lived beige head. Aroma is roasted, woody. Flavor is woody, bourbon, sweet. Finish is wood, roasted malt and fruits. Light body, weak carbonation. Very disappointing.

Bendrixian (1268) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - APR 21, 2015
Pitch black pour with a brown head. Earthy woodsy aroma with vanilla and some prunes. On the palate it is fairly big with cereal mash a tad sweet with some toast and prunes. not bad beer at all.

Bagacios (3) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 15, 2015 does not count
Pours deep brown with opaque clarity. The delicate head is 2 fingers but dissipates quickly. First note in the aroma is a alcoholic, which is a bit unmasked by the coffee and cereal 2nd notes. Has a dry finish.

bennetporter (213) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - APR 11, 2015
Pours a black-brown with a thin khaki head from a bottle. Roasted coffee aroma and flavor notes over bitter chocolate and black malts, I don’t get much from the bourbon, except maybe a hint of oaky vanilla.

Homer321 (2498) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - APR 10, 2015
Bottle from the store. Pours light brown with minimal head. Nose is chocolate with a light bourbon nose. Some vanilla as well. Taste is Gawd Awful sour and tart. Damn infected beer. I’m dumping this.

TheHopster (881) - Netcong, New Jersey, USA - APR 10, 2015
(Bottle). Deep brown complexion with quickly diminishing head. Malty flavor with slightly bitter coffee and mild bourbon. Overly carbonated for the style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

EyeAmBaldman (363) - Illinois, USA - APR 7, 2015
Pours mahogany with a thick khaki head that leaves no lacing in the glass. Aroma is coffee, dark chocolate and a pinch of bourbon. I don’t really taste much bourbon in this. It has a strong coffee taste with a tiny bit of sweetness on the backend. I’m guessing that’s supposed to be the bourbon, but I don’t get it. There are a ton of better bourbon barrel beers out there but as a stout, this is pretty good.

Good beer but I enjoyed the pungent flavor of bourbon more in the ale than in this offering.

garthicus (2772) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAR 17, 2015
Bottle. Jet black with a tiny off white head. Aroma: Butter and wood, bourbon , a little chocolate. Flavour: buttery overpowering bourbon, wood, hints of chocolate and chicory, medium sweet finish. Not very well balanced.

Bottle. Coffee chocolate aroma. Dry roasty taste. Not much bourbon flavour. Mediocre impy.
