"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.

sfontain (851) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 5, 2013
22 oz bottle, Andersons, $11.99 or $12.99. Had the non-barrel-aged 22 oz last night. Same unfiltered murky dark copper pour; dissipates into a small ring and a very light, sparse covering. -Much- more notable oak and vanilla and wood than the non-BA version, and surprisingly boozier too. Probably more dark fruit (prune?) than the non-BA. This was a fun beer to taste test because against the non-BA. With the non-BA at about 8 bucks I’d like to see the BA version at a little less of a markup, but this is really, really good.

thewolf (12137) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2016
Bottle, bought @Beershoppen, Kolding. Mild gusher. Pours clear amber with a tiny, fizzy off-white head that soon disappears. Quite a bit of floaties. Aroma has lots of Vanilla, fat caramel, biscuits and oak. Fine creamy mouthfeel, subdued carbonation. Flavour is sweet, vinious and Vanilla. Light oaky dryness to go with the viniousness, sticky caramel as well. Too sweet and too one-sided.

olio (9386) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2016
65 cl bottle @ Timo A.
Pours dark mahogany red color with a small head, lots of sediment floating around. Sweet caramel and malts on the nose, mild nutty tones, some vanilla and bourbon notes, faint bread, syrupy sweetness. Sweet caramel malty flavor, nutty dry notes, resin, very subtle chocolaty tones, vanilla. Smooth and sweet, quite pleasant, alcohol comes slightly through but nothing disturbing.

rosenbergh (10718) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 25, 2016
22 oz bottle. Courtesy of olio. Clear red amber color with a tiny tan head and some floaters. Sweetness, marmalade, resin and caramel malt in the aroma. The flavor is sweetness, malt, marmalade, apricot and some alcohol. German Bock notes. Strong red ale if you ask me. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

williamstome (1709) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 31, 2016
Ruddy pour, big foamy off white head. Aroma of cherry, caramel, toffee, spices. Taste follows, with a lesser kick. Quite malty. Nice.

frankenkitty (2007) - 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.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6850) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 27, 2016
Sampled on draft at the brewpub this beer poured a dark bronze color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was caramel, golden fruit, honey and coconut. The flavor was caramel, toasty malts, honey, golden fruit, coconut and a hint of smoke. Medium length finish. Medium body. Interesting.
