3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml brown bottle. Gold pour, clear. Decent looking white head with a nice fine bead to it. Good looking lacing. Nose has some sweet notes of caramel and vanilla. Taste has big vanilla, sweet caramel, some honey. Light woody/barrel in the finish, dries out a fair bit. Medium body, fine bubbled carbonation on the tongue. Was not expecting a golden and clear beer here, but overall this is a sweetish but drinkable strong ale with mild oaky barrel notes. A bit industrial, but drinkable.

Growler from the Beer Growler (Alpharetta). Clear gold with a small, off-white head. The aroma is caramel, hay, butterscotch, and vanilla. Very sweet, with a little sour note toward the end. Medium body, sticky, a little acidic, and lightly carbonated. This beer is very forward with the bourbon notes, which is the only thing to make this mediocre beer worth drinking.

On tap. Pours a clear amber gold with a grayish tan head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of vanilla with some sweet grains and just a bit of bourbon. Flavor is also heavy with vanilla throughout and just a hint of bourbon a bit sweet.

Pours a copper color, thin white head. Smells like vanilla no real bourbon smell or taste in this beer. Was fairly dissapointed all around. Would like less vanilla and more bourbon.

Hazy amber beer, little white head. Light softish palate. Very sweet orange and cream soda soft drinks! Vanilla oak. Finishes dry. An odd odd beer. Pretty good for half a glass - but that was more than enough!

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale is.not quite what I expected at first but it has some interesting qualities just the.same. The nose on this is a nice hint of a good bourbon but the taste is distinctively vanilla with a little too much maltiness. The right amount of hop flavor is needed to balance it out. A slight bit of bourbon flavor returns on the aftertaste. KBB Ale definitely has potential but could use some tweaking.

Had this for the first time in an eatery in Lakewood Oh with a fresh ground burger, medium well, with a fried egg on top along with lettuce and tomato. Excellent beer. Now I need to find a store where I can buy this beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle into snifter glass. Pours a copper color with a small white head that disappates quickly and leaves very slight lacing that slides down into the beer. Delicious aroma of vanilla, caramel, biscuits, oak, and a hint of bourbon. Taste is duller than it should be with a warm vanilla, cinnamon, caramel, and bread. Slightest hint of bourbon on the back end with a nice little alcohol burn and a slight vanilla and oak aftertaste in the finish. Palate is a bit too thin with a light body and high on carbonation. Finish is pretty quick but pronounced. Overall quite enjoyable for an ale. One of the few bourbon barrel beers that doesn’t overwhelm you with the bourbon.
