COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Carefully crafted by Alltechs 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 Caf 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.

Pour, is dark brown with some translucency. This beer is not a thick imperial stout with strong flavors. Its like a watered down version of the Narwhal by Sierra Nevada. I do not taste the bourbon barrel flavor at all. Flavors I do taste are roasted malt and coffee. The palate is nice and its better than non some stouts on the market, but I would rather buy the Narwhal, Breakfast Stout, or Old Rasputin over this beer. In that order also.

Black with a khaki head. Nose is light alcohol, roasted malts, vanilla, wood and sticky. Nice palate, light roasted malts, sweet, wood, vanilla and an easy finish.

Very tasty. The bourbon flavor melds nicely with the prevailing coffee, chocolate, and cream flavors.

The bourbon aspect to this beer really brings out a unique flavor and kick. This beer is smooth and very drinkable, with not much alcohol kick for being an 8% ABV beer. The bourbon/beer combo blends surprisingly well, and the head is really nice. Its even got a little creaminess to it.

Bottle. A- Coffee, cocoa, malty, robust, roasted, espresso. A- Black color, dark liquid, tan head. T- Coffee, cocoa, slightly bitter, malty, roasted, subtle bourbon, caramel, vanilla. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, robust finish. O- Quite good, considering my hopes werent too high. Not Founders Breakfast stout quality, but still nothing to dismiss. Lots of coffee and roasted cocoa. Fairly rich and complex, although the bourbon aging didnt seem to do much to it.

"Pretty much as expected since Ive had the amber a couple times. I knew itd be thinner. Its not a massive imperial stoutm so I didnt expect thick, or huge. It does seem like the barrel was different, as this bourbon was more mellow and less peppery than I remember the amber being (but its been a while). For a more widely produced and cheaper alternative, this would be a good way to scratch that barreled itch (I get that itch a lot and cant drop $10-20 each time). Nose is great, fudge, coffee and mellow barrel. Look is a little weak, more like a porter. Feel isnt huge, but is smooth and not a trace of 8%. Flavor is nice and mellow, almost matching the aroma but with less going on, especially the roasted coffee aspect. Not too shabby for $3."

Having had both this beer and the much-lauded Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout, I have to be perfectly honest... I cant tell a difference. If youre wondering what Founders KBS tastes like, get yourself a bottle of this beer and sip it. Theres little, if any, significant difference. Both beers have a solid stout flavor behind them with plenty of coffee and dark roasted malt bitterness to them. Both have a solid bourbon aroma and flavor to them. Both are quite drinkable and enjoyable. But Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout is much easier to find and usually much less expensive than Founders.

It's a decent enough Bourbon Stout. Poured with a short-lived light tan head, no lace and an opaque Black brown color. Aroma is roast Malt, bourbon. Flavors like aroma well-balanced very drinkable but not too complex. Kind of an average body for a stout. Overall a good enough beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nagyon érezhető a bourbon és a kávé, azonnal feltűnik a fonom ízében. Selymes és lágy, ugyanakkor érezteti az erejét minden egyes korty végén. Imperial stoutok közül nálam az első, a sokféle íz miatt nagyon tetszik, a végig domináló fekete jelleg mellett.

UPDATED: JUL 21, 2016 Bottle@ Whole Foods - The low alcohol content allowed the coffee flavor to dominate...which, not being a coffee lover, i did not fall in love with this beer.
