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.

Shanebrews (261) - Texas, USA - OCT 26, 2015
The aroma is the best quality of this beer: smooth, full, enticing, and roasty. The appearance is copper and lighter than I expected of a barrel aged beer. The taste is a bit of caramel with some delicate roastiness and a certain vanilla woody element. The body is medium with light bittering, muted by barrel aging, and the alcohol is hidden. Good but not a favorite, and rather pricey for what it is.

Very weak for a bourbon barrel, too mass produced. Aroma is very chemical-ish, faint bourbon, oak. Taste is chemical, vanilla, slightly boozy. Easy pass.

Poured a clear amber color. Light bourbon sweetness, lots of booze in this. Light oak, vanilla. Caramel malts, with some light bourbon, vanilla and oak notes. Light sweet booze finish.

Bottle at America on tap. Rich caramel with hints of vanilla and oak with a bit of sweetness to round it all out. I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.

12 oz bottle, 10/3/15. Decent-to-light aroma of malty sweetness and some light barrel notes. Flavor is along the same lines. Light burn on the mouthfeel, which is solid, but not better than that.. Overall, this one is not bad, but not special, but at it’s price point I can certainly seem the appeal.

altonbrownd (4817) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - OCT 3, 2015
On tap at Bar Symon, Dulles. Bold amber body with slight head. Nose is sweet, vanilla, bourbon. Taste is malts, fruits, sweet, candy and licorice definitely, and lots of fruits. Kicks in a bit at the end. Too subdued probably and not ambitious enough.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a ruby color with a decent white head and some lacing. The aroma is bourbon, sweet corn, and bread. The taste is sour, bourbon, and corn. You get a little of the bourbon burn with some sweetness and some sour. There’s a nice warming quality to it. I thought this was nicely done.

알텍 렉싱턴 브루잉 - 켄터키 버본 베럴 에일 8.2% ABV 버본베럴에 6주간 에이징 한 에일. 실제로 위스키 향이 많이 베어나와 묽은 위스키를 마시는 느낌도 든다.바닐라와 오크위스키 베럴향이 반반 섞인 에일 위스키 디스틀링도 하는 회사다 보니 베럴 풍미는 양산형임에도 불구하고 상당히 제대로 구현하는데, 맥주가 너무 대중성을 고려하여 특별히 인상에 남진 않는다. 적당히 크래프트 맥주 붐에 편승해서 비지니스 하는 지역 브루어리 인듯. https://twitter.com/MaekJuBot
