Nice, opaque black appearance. Smells roasty with lots of coffee. Slight caramel hints, but it’s mainly all coffee. The taste is very light on the bourbon, heavy on the coffee and smoke - almost like weak diner coffee. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thin for a stout. delorian (85) - budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 24, 2014
Többet vártam, sokkal többet. Az igaz, hogy van némi tölgyfahordós, kávés jellege, de nekem nem volt elég testes az ilyen típushoz, pláne nem karakteres. baraciisch (3438) - California, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pitch black in color... Aroma of roasted malts, dark coffee... Flavor is dark coffee, bourbon, roasted malts... Very coffee forward... Solid

Totally missed the mention of coffee on the label -- it’s much stronger than bourbon barrel influence. Also some chocolate and char in there. AKORN (221) - Virginia, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Nice pour, good head. Very dark in color. Smoky malt, coffee and chocolate aroma. Taste similar to aroma with bitter bourbon and some dark fruit also. Good beer

12 oz bottle. Pours dark brown with tall, long lasting, creamy, beige head and nice lacing. Aroma is of roasted malt, toast, dark fruit, coffee, vanilla and dark chocolate. Body is full, creamy and smooth. Taste is of some funk, bourbon, roasted malt, coffee, vanilla, brown sugar, dark fruit and some hops. Finish is long and boozy. Well done brew.

UPDATED: AUG 4, 2014 Pours deep reddish mahogany with a small tan head. Smells of coffee and hints of vanilla. Taste is bourbon vanilla sweetness with a touch of coffee underneath. Full-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout finishes with a lingering, cloying syrupy sweetness. rajendra82 (1109) - Alpharetta, Georgia, USA - JUL 17, 2014
The pour looked opaque, black, and imposing in the tulip glass. The head formed to a one finger thick at first, but dies down rapidly, and the beer looked quite still thereafter. The aroma was quite tame for a beer of this gravity and complex construction. I could detect a hint of vanilla, and some oak and coffee, but it was a rather mild smell. The taste was dominated by coffee, followed by some toffee and chocolate. The oak and vanilla were quite a bit more subdued than many other similarly aged beers. There was a faint hint of cherry in the finish. The body was much thinner than a typical stout, and the beer felt way less potent than it was. The aftertaste was a lingering vanilla note. It was an enjoyable beer, but I would have liked to seen more oak influences show up. Crispy34 (496) - Texas, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Draft. Aroma is dark malt. No bourbon that I noticed. Appearance is black with little tan head. Taste is dark malt with some bourbon. Palate is dry and dark. Overall, a decent stout. It needs more bourbon, though.

UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Bottle: Thanks, Mike. Deep brown-ish color, a khaki head dissipates quickly to a foamy collar. Aroma is super buttery... Diacetyl overload, anyone? Mild toffee, hint of some sweet milk chocolates, I guess. Bourbon barrel? Uhh... Taste, unfortunately, does not get any better. Tons of buttery off-flavor with only minor hints of "stout" underneath... Touch of milky cocoa. Quite astringent in the finish, possibly the only indication of a barrel, here. No bourbon or woody flavors otherwise. Exceedingly poor, this brewery is a fucking joke.
