1.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle at home as an extra in a trade. Pour is clear orange with a small white head that quickly dissipated. Bourbon, butterscotch, caramel corn, sweet malt, vanilla, and toffee in the aroma. Taste is watered down adjunct-laced whiskey corn drank. . . oh yeah and I tasted some caramel and vanilla too. Light body with soft carbonation. Pretty nasty shit.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Henrik. This is a blurry wood - golden one with a small sidesticking white top. It’s not what I would call extreme on the nose this, but it has a apple sweet and it’s easy to smell the alcohol here. Smells a bit like a strong spicy cider in a way this. Strange.. It has loads of vanilla in the taste this. Light oily on the mouthfeel with a average carbonation level. Lots of alcohol here. Much more like drinking a cognac than a bourbon. Actually so much that I would say that cognac is the main flavor here. When nosing it now, the cognac is overpowering the cider. Well, it’s not the best bourbon barreled one I’ve had this, by far, but as a cognac night cap it could just about work this. 10.05.2013

Bakersfield. Lew and Brian.... on draft. Nice copper color, nothing too discernable aroma-wise, but the taste was very distinct. Extraordinarily sweet, crazy sweet, with freshly cut plywood, almonds, and caramel all punching it out, with my palate being the unfortunate recipient of this extreme cloying combination. Love the sweet malty beers, but this was over the top.

Bottle from recent trip on the Bourbon Trail. Poured into pint glass, golden-amber color with white head. Great aroma of bourbon, vanilla, some oak and caramel malt. Taste is a little lighter then aroma leads on, honey/vanilla sweetness and light oaked bourbon balanced with some small hop character. Medium body, light carbonation, sweet body and a dry quick finish. I’ll admit kind of weak for a American strong ale but I’m a sucker for bourbon so I enjoyed this quite a bit. Easy drinking for a beer and bourbon fan.

This is probably the most interesting brew I've drank to date. Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale is stored in bourbon barrels, so it adapts the taste of sweet bourbon and the oak barrels. The taste is very strong while drinking, yet has a very smooth finish. A very good beer!

12 ounce bottle, honey heavy aroma which is different for a bourbon ale. This is lighter than anticipated but very tasty. The weight makes it easy to drink. Almost refreshing, again, odd for a Bourbon ales, but, pleasant. Good beer.
