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.

Bottle. I really only gave this a second look because of the feathers on the bottle. Glad I did. The spice from the rye is the main thing in the aroma and the flavor. Spicy rye up front, then a bit of malt sweetness that leads you to a dry rye finish. wish I had more of this.

Sporo aromatu beczki pod postacią mokrego drewna z dodatkiem czerwonych owoców, lekkiego karmelu i pikanterii żyta. W smaku pełne, lekko oleiste, wytrawnie karmelowe z lekką kwaskowatością i świetnym już stricte bourbonowym finiszem. Świetne !

krumbum (991) - truckee, California, USA - AUG 19, 2016
Smells a little nutty, a little barrelesc, a bit of heat from the whiskey. Glowing brown with light cover of head. Smooth almost mellow milk chocolate then then a woody vanilla carries it home. Amazing great smooth body.

Draft. Pours a medium, well retained, ivory head, with heavy lacing, over a slightly hazy copper (SRM 15) body......nose is rye, light bourbon, hints of oak, light bread, biscuit, balanced.......taste is slightly sweet with caramel hints, light bourbon notes, heavy rye, hints of oak and vanilla, mild hop bitterness on the finish.....mouth feel, medium body, moderate alcohol heat, moderate carbonation. This is a well made showcase for the rye, with nicely handled barrel notes, mild hops. BJCP 8/3/13/4/7

A nice bourbon rye overall. Pours a cloudy Amber with a tan head. Smells of cherries, strawberries and a bit of caramel and vanilla. Taste is crisp, like a pale ale, with some bourbon and vanilla. Had in the bottle.
