The barrel-aged flavors native to Kentucky compliment this complex stout brewed and aged with Haitian coffee to create this wonderful Bourbon Barrel Stout.
Couleur noire, mousse légère, nez sur le Bourbon. Bourbon bien présent en bouche, mais assez fade et aqueuse. Manque de corps, manque d’alcool. Décevant. Calisky (2916) - ALSACE, FRANCE - MAY 12, 2017
Couleur noire, légère mousse beige. Nez malt grillé avec note caramel et whisky. Gout malt grillé, whisky avec caramel un peu vanillé. Corps un peu leger. Petite amertume et caramelisé en fin de bouche. PAs trop mal

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 isn’t 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 gopherfan99 (1778) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 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.

Creosote, bourbon, aroma, subtle hints of fudge. Cola black, thin tan head. Charcoal, raisin, astringent. Medium body, easy carbonation. Little character or depth of flavor. ehaak26 (499) - - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle from Liquor Barn. Pours black with little head. Aroma of coffee, vanilla, and alcohol. Jayb0 (1196) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - FEB 17, 2017
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.
