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.

Pinball (11705) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2015
bottle from řlbutikken i think, or kihoskh. clear brown, smooth light brown head. finest burbon, malts and wood aroma, resembling a good barley wine that is not hopped a lot. flavor is malts, boozy notes, bitter caramel, licorice. A bit too thin and bitter caramel like compared to what i would expect from aroma, more speciality grain than barley wine. The bitter hops are now more prominent, but still very european. tasty brew, almost an 8 bit just misses that bc it lacks a little malt flavor as i sense it. This is pretty impressively done if it is the first barrel aged out of the brewery.

Kita (1599) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 26, 2015
Bottle, 0.75l, shared with Luka. Pours hazy brownish amber color with medium soapy tan-like head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of grains, dark fruits, wood, whiskey and some honey. Taste starts with moderate sweet caramel and honey, follows by mild fruity acidity, whiskey and barrel note, mouthfeel is warming and alcoholic, while finish is moderate bitter. Medium to full body, syrupy texture and lively average carbonation in palate. Not the best, but I liked it more than Catcher in the Rye...

77ships (6195) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 19, 2015
Sampled draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Deep red amber, little head. Nose is hugely sweet weird caramel, boozy alcoholic apple, spirit, cough syrup, weird very sweet alcoholic spirit cough syrup. Taste is touch watery, weirdly sweet alcoholic apple, lightly vegetable, spirit, very sweet cough syrup, cooked apple, very strong tea that stood for far too long, apple, thick raisins, oak,… Bit watery, crazily sweet,…. Very odd, not even sure what this one was meant to be. At least the barrel didn’t have chicken feathers stuck to it (I think). Touch bizarre appealing but overall not really for me.

Man. Fudge this beer! .. Feather on the bottle, that’s about as good as it gets .. . Dirty rye underwear .. Sad plucky mouth, medium to long stained finish .. Not good and horribly shitily over priced .. . . My cats butt looks like a car lighter

heman (336) - Tychy, POLAND - SEP 17, 2015
Ładny złożony aromat: karmel, susz owocowy, niuanse waniliowe. W smaku wyraźna gładkość żyta, posmaki karmelowe, średnia goryczka i niesamowite słodkie drewno na finiszu, lekko cierpkie. Całość bardzo pijalna.

mgajdaczewa (1139) - Katowice, POLAND - SEP 17, 2015
W aromacie cudowna beczkowa wanilia, która idealnie komponuje się z żytnią ziemisto - chlebową słodowością, super! W smaku podobnie, odczucie wanilii silne, jednak słabnie z każdym łykiem, na dodatek brakuje kontry goryczki (mizerna) lub zwiększonej pełni dla spotęgowania wrażenia. Niemniej jednak warto dla samego bajecznego aromatu. Do tego jest bardzo pijalne.
