This week Professor Flanny, from Mr. Beerys, reviews Lexington Brewery's Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout.
Lexington Brewery followed-up on the popularity of their Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, by adding a stout to their year-round line-up. This 8.0%abv Imperial Stout is brewed with Haitian coffee. After brewing the beer it is aged in wood barrels that once contained Alltech's world famous Kentucky Bourbon. The roasted malts and the subtle coffee flavors are complemented well by the notes of sweet caramel and vanilla imparted by the wood barrels.
