Lexington Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout

Lexington Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout

The last few days have been a real roller coaster with respect to the rental property I own. At the end of last week I thought we had a tenant all lined up. By Monday, the tenant had disappeared…gone to a different property. My current tenant leaves at the end of the week, so I was stressed that the unit might end up empty for a period of time – something I can’t particularly afford. By Tuesday we had another tenant locked and loaded, ready to move in ASAP. I’m on pins and needles waiting to have the lease signed!

Tonight I spent some time at Worchester’s Armsby Abbey, enjoying some libations with co-workers. Because I really don’t need another beer tonight, I’m posting my final catch-up review from this past weekend in Vermont: Lexington Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout.

I grabbed this beer for two reasons:

  1. Kentucky Bourbon Ale is hands-down the most popular page on LIBA. Probably because it’s a tasty beer.
  2. I tried the Kentucky Pumpkin Bourbon Barrel Ale a few weeks back an absolutely loved it.

Sadly, the Lexington Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Stout really let me down. I got virtually no bourbon/oak/vanilla flavors from this imperial stout. Instead, I got a ton of roasted coffee. Boring and unenjoyable for me. BOO! My hopes had been so high for this one.
