Award-winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Aleģ is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Our Kentucky Aleģ is aged for up to six weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentuckyís finest distilleries. Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrels. Pleasantly smooth and robust, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale may also be served as an aperitif or after-dinner drink. Launched in 2006, it has grown to become the flagship beer of the premier name in barrel-aged beers: Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company.

355ml bottle at BePLUS Beer Club, Xiamen. Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Big vanilla and bourbon aroma. Sweet finish. Didnít really use to like this style but itís growing on me.

Eh, kind of expecting more from this! Pours amber w/ a thin white head & some lacing. The aroma is of subtle bourbon as is the taste. Itís fairly thin at over 8% & doesnít have much character other than the bourbon. Itís drinkable but definitely a 1 trick pony!

UPDATED: JUN 18, 2015 Glowinf dark Amber color. Notes of brown sugar and vanilla on the nose. Slight bite of char from the barrels, but mostly caramel, vanilla, butterscotch and a touch of tobacco for flavor. Very smooth...and a nice change of pace. Worth the coin.

On tap at World of Beer Pensacola. Pours a cloudy orange with small frothy white head. The aroma is honey malt, wood, caramel. Similar flavors to nose, light booze, decent.

12 oz bottle into a pint glass, from Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits - Muscatine. Dark orange to light amber and clear appearance with a small, diminishing head. Aroma of dark fruits, oak, vanilla and a touch of bourbon. Similar flavor, kind of bland and weird. Average body. Hard to drink after a while.

A strange brew. Pours dark amber with very little head. The aroma has some vanilla and oak. Same for the flavor. Very thin and watery.

Sampler at Matt the Millerís Tavern. Luminous brown color with almost no head. Aromas are caramel and bourbon. Strong bourbon flavor up front, think caramel, adequate hops. Light and fizzy on the palate. The bourbon is too overpowering for the thinness of the ale. Not a great beer.
