"The rich and malty character of our Outta Kilter Scotch Style Red Ale is masterfully complimented by barrel aging, as the ’angel’s share’ slowly evaporates resulting in a wonderful concentrating of flavors. The full flavor experience goes one step further with the vanillin undertones from the oak wood of the barrel, adding a savory, satisfying depth of flavor, ultimately creating a wonderful sensory experience!

Bottles marked "Barrel Aged" Outta Kilter is aged in Bourbon barrels while "Liquor Barrel" Outta Kilter are aged in Brandy barrels.

frankenkitty (2006) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Pours with a large, slow head over a deep copper colored body. Boozy aroma first strikes me as rum. As it warms the alcohol becomes more distinct as whiskey, while malts provide a backdrop of caramel with a light roasted nuttiness. Smooth and silky, malty sweet yet tempered with that roast bitterness. Whiskey notes are obvious in the flavor, and the alcohol provides a pleasant warming sensation to the palate and gullet. I’ve been to a few "Festivals of Barrel Aged Beers" and I think this offering would fare well. ~~~~ 22 oz. bomber, purchased at the brewery.

Scopey (11958) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2016
Keg at Craft Holborn. It pours clear dark amber with a thick yellow - beige head. The aroma is rich, sweet, vanilla custard, creamy coconut, toffee, brown bread and fruit cake. The taste is pretty damn sweet upfront, vanilla, creamy, coconut, custard, toffee, alcohol warmth, fruit cake and wood with a dry, boozy finish. Medium - full body and moderate carbonation. A bit sweet and boozy, but fun in small doses.
