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.

Rating No.6300
Bottled 650ml. -at Svijet Piva Zagreb. Murky brown coloured, small to medium sized off-white head, caramel and wood in the nose. Rather toasted malt, alcohol, wood, caramel and touch of dried fruits and smoke with also notes of alcohol and vanilla in the finish. Very good beer but after Doris and Boris a bit letdown from the brewery.

zoucrew102 (869) - - JUL 5, 2015
Bomber, 2014 vintage. Caramel malt aroma with excellent whiskey, vanilla, oak and toffee notes. Pours amber-ruby colored with a thin tan head with good retention and some lacing. Starts with sticky, sugary caramel and toffee sweetness and mouthfeel. Finishes smooth with nice whiskey, vanilla and oak undertones. Excellent barrel aged scotch ale albeit slightly over sweet.

Draught @ Hoppin Frog, Akron, OH
Pours hazy reddish brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, dried fruits, alcohol and faint hint of oak. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long warm, caramel and dried fruity finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 16, 2015
On tap at the taproom. An almost clear one, dark amber in color and with a small dark beige head. The aroma is malty and sugary with a nice hoppy touch. Toffee notes. A bit sweet on the palate, full bodied and smooth with a certain warmth. Toffee, some light roasted malts, dark sugar and a nice bitterness in the flavor, lasting for a good while. Not much booze detected. Nice, not superb. 150616

JorisPPattyn (8433) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JUN 16, 2015
Huge, dense & fine cream-coloured head, slightly irregular over (cold)hazy red-amber beer. Quite fruity nose (mainly orange) with a vinous streak, liqueurish. Caramel, cake with brandy/rum... Bitterish, sweet, with a lactic streak. Vanilla, strawberry, liqueur, ripe banana. Wood in every new sip, always ending in the creamy liqueur. Feels very lively carbonated. Slick to viscous, thick body, velvety feel. Excellent.

Huhzubendah (2996) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 12, 2015
Served alongside Outta Kilter. Nearly identical appearance to the base beer. The BA version is slightly darker. Bourbon character is mild in the aroma, emerging mid palate with a light tannic note. Well blended. Wet breads, fruit, malt, tannic notes, oak, cotton candy, barrel, bourbon. Medium body with a bit of stickiness on the palate. Tasty.

Swaroga (1756) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 27, 2015
Butelka 60cl. OCZY : śliczne piwo o kolorze czerwonym z średniej wielkości piana o kolorze szarym. NOS : w zapachu szybko wychwytam nuty whisky, suszonych i kandyzowanych czerwonych owoców. Do tego tarta, banan i wanilia. Pachnie słodko a nuty whisky są głębokie o ciepłych o wyraźnych nutach wanilii. Jest fajnie. USTA : średnio nasycone. Piwo jest gęste, oleiste i przyjemnie puszyste. Słodkie ale nie klejące. Przy końcu robi się coraz bardziej wytrawne. Gorzkość jest bardzo delikatna. Piwo szybko rozgrzewa alkoholem. Wytrawne nuty przypominają drewno i delikatnie goździki. Alkohol podkreśla mocny aromat whisky a gorzkość jest ziemista. Słodkość natomiast przypomina kandyzowane owoce. Posmak jest średnio intensywny. ODCZUCIA : zauroczyło mnie kolorem, mocnym aromatem whisky i dobrze wyważonym smakiem. Z drugiej strony posmak jest troszeczkę za mało intensywny.

AirForceHops (4508) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2015
22 oz. bottle. Dirty brown/ copper with spotty head. Aroma is light rum, vanilla from the barrel, English toffee and light raisins. Body is a bit on the thinner side with a almost watery texture. The flavor is still decent. Toasted oak, rum, vanilla, thin toffee, with a rum type finish. I get more of a rum barrel rather than a Bourbon. Thin body but the flavor is still here.

Poured from bottle thanks Adrian. Pours reddish brown with a thin white head. Aromas of bread caramel and hints of vanilla. Taste is smooth with toasted oak and caramel and a nice hint of booze in the finish.
