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®.

The result is a complex stout with dark-roasted malts, hints of caramel and vanilla and a lightly roasted coffee finish.

Not a bad try, but still paper thin for a stout. Instead of the melding together, the vanilla and bourbon flavors lead out of nowhere and are a tad incongruous with the beer. Mellow. Nice. Not great though.

bnokk (154) - 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 (10922) - 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 (890) - 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.

Ron (2916) - Rochester, New York, USA - MAY 11, 2015
Bottle. A decent aroma full of malt and coffee with a hint of chocolate. A dark burnt brown/blackish color with a great tan head that dissipates swiftly. Starts out with strong malt and coffee, then definitely gets some caramel/vanilla notes and finishes easy. Was a decent stout overall.

Tonkun (1052) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Tap. Amber pour with a big white head. Vanilla, American oak, caramel. Very oaky. Medium to light body. Too much oak for the body

ZacM612 (282) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2015
Opaque black with a thin, light beige head. Aroma of chocolate and a little coffee. Flavor is sweet at first, with a coffee finish. Not bad.

SpartanVirus (2) - Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2015 does not count
One of the dankest stout not Stone. Aroma is non-indicative as the deep coffee aspect overwhelms other facets. As such, it does linger well after the last sip. Otherwise its drinkability resembles a dark ale meets light IPA. At 8 who can complain... Coffee lover’s delight.

VT (1795) - 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 (1298) - 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.
