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.

Kolor: ciemnozłoty, blady, delikatnie zmętniony.
Piana: niezbyt obfita, drobnopęcherzykowa, nietrwała, redukuje się z sykiem do znikomej warstwy.
Zapach: przyjemny, intensywny, słodki, dominują śliwki, daktyle, rodzynki lekki miód, w tle wyczuwalne aromaty beczki, trochę wanilii.
Smak: piwo dość pełne, słodycz wyraźna, ale bez przesady, nie zalepia, również wyczuwalne nuty owocowe, goryczka niska na finiszu.
Wysycenie: średnie w kierunku niskiego, dobre.

Draft. A clear coppery color with a minimal off white head. Light bourbon aroma with a smooth slightly caramel taste, light body, and clean finish.

ChrisSc (438) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 29, 2015
12oz bottle into tulip. Hayward, WI. Pours amber in color. Mostly clear. Small white head. Aroma: Bourbon notes dominate and caramel malt. Taste: Mostly sweet. A little bitter notes. Body is medium with a shorter finish. Decent to try, but not really wowed. Bourbon is present, but its kind of a weird fit with the style. Not a favorite.

Wow. Almost suspect artificial vanilla notes. Very buttery after taste. Nice color if it picked anything up from the barrel it was the color, next to nothing for aroma. Beer is surprisingly sweetish in mouthfeel, but not in taste.

Pours an amber color with a moderate head. I detected a taste of cherry, not unpleasant. Still, the boldness of a creative ale was not there. But I continued to drink and enjoy an unusual beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.
