COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Aged for four months in bourbon barrels from the distillery in Kentucky, the Bourbon Barrel Stout is a robust yet balanced beer. Roasted malts give it a chocolate and coffee overtone, and the oak creates hints of vanilla and caramel. At 10.5% ABV, this stout pairs well with smokey barbeque sauce or even rich desserts.

harrisoni (14141) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
Bottle at post Borefts BF 09 tasting. Black with bourbon on aroma. Some vanilla, ok, some malt character. Some sweetness from bourbon. For a bourbon barrel aged beer, not bad. Still too much though especially the heat on the end.
