COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"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.

ryecatcher (1171) - Bridgeport, Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 14, 2016
Bomber. Pours a turbid brown, so-so head. Nose is candy sugar, barrel, big fuckin caramel. Mouth is sticky and big bodied with sharp carbonation, mostly on the sweet side, brown sugar, maple syrup, ripe apples, raisins, vanilla, figs, booze, bourbon, Buttery toffee finish. Solid. Hoppin’ Frog makes some bad ass beers.

Keg at Cafe Beermoth, Manchester. Reddish shade with a fluffy head. Lots of candied fruit notes in the aroma and barrel is there too. Taste is fruity, red apple, gummy worms, brown sugar. A bit dry and fairly drinkable. Decent stuff.

Bottle at tasting. Aroma of sweet raisin, vanilla and caramel. Taste is really sweet, with raisin, caramel, vanilla and malt. Nice, but a little sugary.

Old note. The aroma has bourbon/vanilla/wood, caramel, fruity tones. Bit hazy, amber-red-brown coloured beer with an off-white, big head. The taste is light bitter, has caramel malty sweetness, bread, bourbon, some dried fruits. Medium-full bodied. Nice one.

corby112 (2804) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Pours a very cloudy and very dark ruby red color with blood orange edges and a one finger white head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring. Minimal spotty lacing left behind. There’s a prominent whiskey barrel presence in the aroma with subtle vanilla bean and a strong spicy rye character that overpowers the notes of the base beer. The barrel notes are really nice but that’s all I can pick up until this beer warms up considerably. On the lighter end of medium body with a spicy whiskey barrel presence that’s nicely integrated into the flavors of the base beer. The aroma is one dimensional but the flavor profile is a bit more complex. There is a lot of interesting barrel flavor with dry oak/charred wood, silky vanilla bean and toasted coconut along with spicy rye and boozy sweetness. Lots of alcohol/spirit flavor but there’s little to no heat. The high ABV is nicely masked with a sweet malt backbone balancing out the rougher edges. Hints of caramel and toffee with faint hops and subtle dark fruit notes toward the finish. Not the most interesting barrel aged beer out there but there’s decent complexity and it’s surprisingly easy to drink. I enjoyed drinking this beer but wouldn’t seek it out again.

hotstuff (4645) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 2, 2015
Rated on 9-01-2015 (Bottle) The appearance is an extremely small tan head with a long retention, murky amber body, fizzy carbonation, no lacing, and a lot of sediment. The aroma is oak, some malt, vanilla, spice and alcohol. The flavor is whiskey, malt, spice, and vanilla. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer is quaffable with a good flavor but I will be doing a re-rate to get a better impression of it due to the small pour from a 22oz. bottle. It is worth trying.

thedm (5282) - Fort Wayne, USA - SEP 1, 2015
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a softly carbonated semi-hazy with floating particulate dark red brown colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was rye and bready. The sharp crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a mellow vinous aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of bitter rye mild dough mildly vinous burnt malt crisp and hops. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

daje (2834) - NORWAY - AUG 18, 2015
Bottle at Cafe Sara, november 14th 2014. Dark orange body with a small head. Aroma of sweet vanilla and whisky. Taste of burned caramel, wood, mango and plum. Solid traces of whisky without having a strong alcohol taste. Quite nice
