COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Award-winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale® is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Our Kentucky Ale® is aged for up to six weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentucky’s 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.

12oz bottle from old town. Pours a copper Amber color with a small off-white head. Vanilla, bourbon, caramel on the nose. Tastes fairly sweet and slightly rich. Average carbonation. Long smooth sweet finish. Kind of below average for a bourbon barreled beer.

Smooth easy drinking ale. Hint of malt and nutty bread. Easy on the palate and simple. Nothing complicated yet decent.

I loved this beer but then again, I love whiskey so there you go. If you like whiskey this beer offers a unique combination of great flavors.

Toen ik de beschrijving las, dacht ik dat dit in de buurt zou komen van de speciale edities van La Trappe of zo. De kleur is heel helder, de geur valt goed mee, maar de smaak is maar flets en teleurstellend. Ik had veel beter verwacht van dit bier

Not gonna spend much time reviewing this. In the end it is a below average beer that lacked in all areas from start to finish.

Bottle 0,355L. Hazy, copper orange colour with small, creamy, off-white head. Aroma of bourbon and cask wood, slightly smokey. Taste goes from lighz bitter to moderate bitter with all mentioned in aroma. There is extra warmth at the end as a result of 8,2 ABV.

ENG: 355ml bottle from Liquor Mart in Winnipeg, poured into the tulip. Clean, amber color with small tan head and a bit of lacing - looks really nice but the head could be more thick. Sweet, caramel candy aromas with notes of fresh walnuts. Taste earthy, woody, caramel, nutty, with hints of vanilla, coconut and champagne. There is alcohol taste present quite strongly. Nice, warming bourbon/brandy/cognac feel in aftertaste. Low to medium carbonation and medium body, milky, creamy. Overall interesting, but rather sweet beer.

PL: Butelka 355ml kupiona w Liquor Mart w Winnipeg, przelana do kieliszka. Klarowna, bursztynowa barwa z niewielką, jasną piana i nieco lejsingu - prezentuje się naprawdę ładnie choć piana mogła by być bardziej obfita. Słodkie aromaty cukierków karmelkowych z nutami świeżych orzechów włoskich. W smaku ziemiste, drewniane, karmelowe, orzechowe, z nutami wanilii, kokosów oraz szampana. Dość mocno wyczuwalna obecność alkoholu. Przyjemne, rozgrzewające odczucie jak po bourbonie/brandy/koniaku w posmaku. Niskie do średniego nasycenie i średnie odczucie w ustach, mleczne, kremowe. Podsumowując ciekawe, ale raczej słodkie piwo.
