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.

Not pleasing, tastes like watered down bourbon. Very little carbonation, finishes very hard.

A unique brew that combines a smooth ale with the flavor and alcohol of Kentucky bourbon. I highly enjoy the regular Kentucky Ale as well. With an ABV of over 8% it packs a whallop and is perfect for dinner or exchanging wine for a fine craft brew.

Was not bad but I expected more. It had a pleasant woodsy smell. Poured a nice deep color. It had a sharp alcohol taste. I did not pick up much flavor from the wood, or vanilla like I was expecting. It had a harsh finish. It could be I got a bad bottle.

Draught at the public in savannah. Too faint for my taste. Could use more barrel time. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap in Hudson, WI. Interesting to have something besides a stout barrel aged. I did it, although the bourbon aromas and taste is a bit too heavy for this one.

Very light body for the strong bourbon aroma and flavor. I seem to like this one more than others.

On tap at Frontier (Chicago). Pours clear caramel. Flavor is sweet and caramelly with a lot of bourbon barrel character - tastes more like barrel than any other beer I’ve had - and I’ve been to FOBAB! However, that’s not necessarily a great thing because there isn’t a whole hell of a lot here. Still, not bad and very palatable for a strong beer.

The best beer I have ever had. You can taste the flavor of the bourbon barrel. It is really good with steak, chicken and barbequed anything. The flavor is consistent and not overpowering. This is an excellent ale.

Bottle. Clear amber liquid with small to medium off-white head. Aroma of buttery bourbon, caramel, biscuit, wood, vanilla, bread and more butter. Very buttery. Taste is light sweet and light bitter with notes of light bourbon, caramel, toffee and butter. Light to medium bodied with low to medium carbonation. Bit watery. Bland and buttery. Meh.

I love the distinctive bourbon taste and smell of this ale. It is very good by itself. It is even better when mixed with Breckenridge Vanilla Porter- the combination is outstanding.
