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.

jbruner (4627) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 6, 2013
Pours an opaque black on tap with thin ring of tan lace. Aroma is heavy roasted malt and coffee, a hint of bourbon on the back end. Taste is coffee and then a hint of vanilla, no real booze presence. Decent, but nothing great.

AWISLguy (2934) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 8, 2017
12oz bottle from the now gone Malt Shoppe in Tosa, cellared for 6 months. Very dark brown pour with a tan head leaving some lace. Aroma has caramel, roast, some fruit, chocolate and some vanilla. Taste is of sweet caramel malts, some roast, some red fruits, and a dose of vanilla, if not really bourbon. Quite sweet as the roast isnt enough to balance. Medium bodied, which feels thin for the components, there is some alcohol presence and the blend is decent. Finishes sweetly with some length. Solid, and nothing offensive. Sweet, where some bitter depth would do wonders. 13.5

flatearthman (56) - Woodbury, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2017
Tan head quickly dissipates to lacey; Slight nose of sweet bourbon; Hue very dark brown with just a bit of orange-brown translucence; Velvet mouthfeel with a very slight bourbon note, slight oak and caramel malt taste with a tiny hint of coffee; malt is just a bit roasted; Quick finish with just a hint of coffee. This beer would score higher as a Porter than a Stout. If you advertize coffee and barrel aging in your beer, those tastes should dominate. Not so with this beer.

Not bad, hard to coax a head, a little thin given 8% to work with. Light chocolate, caramel, vanilla, overall mild. I was impressed by the long finish.

Stout brass avec du caf, et pass en barrel de bourbon avec du caf de Hati .. a cest sur papier!! Niveau abv de 8 %, orge et bl malts. Date illisible, mais assez rcente. Couleur noir profond, lopacit forte. Mousse qui est un nappage fins flocons, de surface, brun moyen. Armes de caf et petit bourbon de contrebande dans un assemblage peu harmonieux, avec du sureau et du melon pas mr. 1re bouche ptillante, au trs faible ensemble, avec des notes de rouille!! Arrire-bouche trs faible. 2me sur le sureau et un caf pass depuis 3 jours. Arrire-bouche sans aucun relief. 3me vraiment navrante, o Mamy a laiss tomb des chalotes dans le caf .. Arrire-bouche o Mamy plonge les mains dedans pour les rcuprer Longueur qui plaque le sureau devant la porte pour permettre Mamy de verser le caf dans un autre pot en fer blanc qui na plus servi depuis 25 ans et qui vient de la remise Papi... juste sous ltagre pleine de clous rouills!! Alcool inoprant: il panique devant la tche dmesure et demande pardon genoux Finale o je dis Mamy quelle devrait de temps en temps remplacer la vaisselle, parce que a commence faire un peu farfouille .. pour tre gentil. CONCLUSION: un titre et une tiquette bien allchante, mais on sarrte pratiquement l Ks aco ken tucky? Tucky ken aco ks ...
