COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kentucky Monk is a bourbon barrel aged Belgian triple that is crafted with Belgian Pilsen malt, white wheat, Crystal 10, and exclusively Saaz hops. The Cantrell Honey Farm in Athens, Ohio supplies gallons of locally harvested Golden Rod honey for this brew. The honey is added at the end of the boil to give this Belgian style triple an elevation in flavor and alcohol. The interplay of fruit/clove character from our Belgian yeast and the local honey is apparent but not aggressive. After this Belgian style triple is ready for consumption, we age a portion of this heavenly brew in bourbon barrels to create Kentucky Monk. Wonderful vanilla and coconut aromas and flavors penetrate the beer. Hints of bourbon, caramel, and honey take Kentucky Monk to a whole new level. An amazing aperitif that embraces Belgian brewing tradition and American craft brewing creativity.

Christmas tasting at the Kernel. Hazy amber beer. Fluffy pale tan head. Semi dry palate. Rich flavours. A little oaky vanilla. Really nice pineapple and coconut. Very mild bourbon. Semi dry finish. Off the wall this one - like a wood aged Pina Colada! Saw quite a few furrowed brows over this one! But it’s a fun and tasty beer and impossible to dislike for me!

yngwie (13693) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 18, 2012
Bottle, at TFODRBSG 2012. Bottle #35. An unclear, dark orange-golden beer with a small, off-white head. Rather vinous, alcoholic aroma with some bourbon-ish scents. Sweetish and fruity. The flavor has a pleasant boozyness, although a bit too heavy. At least for drinking a whole bottle alone. Full-bodied and warming, soft carbonation. Fruityness, peach hints, some vanilla hints, sweetness and a pleasant bitterness in the flavor. Lasting finish. I don’t think it’s the best idea to put a tripel on bourbon barrels, but it’s a decent beer anyway. 120818

Leighton (11319) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle at The Kernel Christmas Tasting 2011. Pours foggy orange with a bubbly, white head. Nose holds bourbon, peanut butter, alcohol, some honey, and toasted malts. Medium to big sweet flavor with more peanut butter, essential oils, coconut, caramel, light bitterness. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Tangy booze finish, some sugar, hard alcohol, dry wood, mild toast. Still some peanut butter. Points for weirdness, but still, this is weird.
