You certainly get the barrel in the taste, but it isn't over powering. Excellent beer. Found it to be rather smooth.

The KBC 14 is aged and more mellow than the 15. More vanillaey. The 15 is sharper and holds more of the bourbon sharpness.

Great brew. Fresh you can really taste the barrel but if you'll wait it out and let a few age they are better with time. Very enjoyable!
