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.

Drank in glass out of a bottle. Pours dArk brown with a thin head. Nice aroma - caramel notes from the bourbon barrels. Big flavor up front That dissipates quickly. Can taste the bourbon but not overwhelming or cloying. Nice beer.

Pitch black with a small, off-white head. The aroma is roasted with coffee, dark chocolate, and some vanilla. It has a full body with somewhat slick texture and average carbonation. The taste is roasted with notes of wood and whiskey.

Coffee, vanilla, booze aroma. Pours black with a thinnish tan head that fades quickly. Light bodied. Thin mouthfeel. Coffee bitterness countered with a fruit vanilla sweetness. Very slight whiskey flavor. Smells WAAY better than it tastes.

UPDATED: AUG 10, 2014 Deep-water hiding a Malaysian Airlines flight 370 in total blackness. As I near the bottom, I hope to uncover the secret of the disappearance! But alas, yes this coffee-beer stout is espresso dark. Alcohol snifter and forward on the palette, it expedites leaving some bitter and a slight dark roast in your cheek. The coffee is overwhelming the bourbon. I love the bourbon ale produced by Kentucky so I had the same expectations in this. But as the description reads true to form, vanilla and coffee. Boring. Bring forth the bourbon in this barrel-aged-wasted beer stout thingy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Heavily medicinal aroma. Coffee flavors are almost overpowering; the taste is completely one of coffee and whiskey (maybe they shouldve called this stout "Irish Coffee"). Needs to be enjoyed with a meal; doesnt work well as a standalone sipper.
