Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout

This beer is black with a small khaki colored head. It smells of dark roasted malts with a little vanilla. It tastes like a good stout with light vanilla, oak, and almost caramel like notes coming through from the bourbon barrels. It has moderate carbonation on a pretty light body. Overall I think it is a well-made bourbon barrel stout that isn't too high in abv.

I've looked at this beer in our store for about a month but passed because of the cost. They finally put it in our create a 6 pack and I'm glad I passed on the whole thing. Its got a great color and has a great head when poured but the flavor is rather weak , the smell is as well. I guess I just expected more. Something rich and bold and instead got watered downish.

Bottle at America on tap.
Rich caramel with hints of roast and plenty of vanilla and butterscotch that at times seems quite bitter. Worse than I thought it would be.

Thin for the style. Not a ton of bourbon character on the nose or palate, but nice tasting non the less. A very drinkable/introductory? Example of the style

Not bad, slight bourbon taste that quickly fades

First had poured from 12-oz. bottle acquired in Dallas into faceted mug. Perhaps an effort to capitalise on the terms "Kentucky" and "KBS" made famous by several other stouts, and lacking in bourbon flavor, but for all that not a bad beer.
