COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first barrel aged beer here at Against the Grain is the Kentucky Ryed Chiquen. Named so because: 1. It was made in Kentucky. 2. It has a lot of Rye in it and was aged in rye barrels. and 3. It is not Chicken, and as we all know (or should know) Chiquen refers to anything that is not chicken. Brewed with Maris Otter, rye malt and caramel rye, imparting a spicy, fruity and dry flavor. Then hopped with enough English Nugget and Kent Goldings just to balance and fermented with our house ale yeast. After fermentation we moved the entire batch into the AtG private dining room and into used Redemption Rye barrels from our good friends at Strong’s Spirits. There it aged for 5 weeks until we felt it had picked up the right amount of residual bourbon character and oak flavors. We then transferred it to our serving tank, carbonated it and the end result is on tap now, a balanced drinkable and complex barrel aged beer.

Dogbrick (9611) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2014
Brewdog levels of bottle gimmickery aside, the beer pours a hazy reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of rye whisky, fruit and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of spicy rye, booze, caramel malt and ripe fruit. The finish is oaky vanilla and spiced rye. Above average overall.

Cybercat (4078) - Georgia, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Pours clear chestnut with a very thick and frothy pale buff head. Aroma has caramel, malty, rye, and subtle bourbon and wood notes. Bourbon dominates the flavor, while letting rye, malt, and hints of caramel and hops to share the stage. Mouthfeel is the beer’s weakest point, thin and not very fizzy; however, it goes down well and pleases this here now beer lover. Don’t be chiquen - grab a bottle and enjoy. Happy Birthday to Moi!

Swaroga (1813) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 20, 2015
Cloudy brown color with a big head. The beer smells well the barrel aging. Apart that tart, cherries, yeasty dough. The carbonation is strong and the beers density is medium to thick. Flavor is dry and spicy with strong notes of (again) barrel aging. In that case alcohol is underlined with notes of bourbon and cherries. Bitterness is earthy and reminds a bit of clove. I really enjoy it to be honest.

on tap @ Party Town (Friday Night Flights) / Florence KY --- Cloudy dark amber color, ivory head, spots and dots of lace. Taste is caramel malt that has overtones of rye. Light carbonation on the swallow, finishing with mild hops. Chewy and full-bodied, lingers nicely. A solid brew.

yngwie (15566) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle, 75cl. An unclear, dark amber beer with almost no head. Off-white head. Gusher. Rather boozy nose with caramel and toffee, dried fruits, grassy, piney hops and some woody hints. There’s a nice carbonation level, it’s full-bodied and lightly warming, with some tannins. Semi-dry, nicely bittered and with peppery hints, toffee and dried fruits. Lasting dry and bitter finish with peppery malts, toffee and piney hops. Interesting, that’s it. 150814

Alexanderdahl (101) - DENMARK - JUL 18, 2015
Action packed beer! Reminded me of my first sexy-time, exploding prematurely upon opening! Well over carbonated! caramel pour with an escaping, light head. Nose has lots of malts and a hint of dry whisky. Smooth and easy drinkable, fruity caramel, light vanilla, whiskey finish. Jammy and dry.
