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.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2015 At Fork on Lincoln. This was a mess. The flavors compete strangely and hit at all the wrong moments. Bourbon, then wood, then cream soda, then sweet. Serving: Tap

growler. clear pale amber with almost no head. sweet caramel candy aroma with notes of butter. flavor of buttery biscuit with werthers candy flavors or even those caramel creams(bulls eyes) with the white vanilla surrounded by the chewy caramel things. barrel and bourbon notes are light and not overpowering. low carbonation and silky. lightish body. would have never guessed the abv. i like it.

On draught at One Eyes Jacks in Fairborn, OH. Very flavorful of oak with a vanilla finish. No head, darker amber color. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a oak aged ale with a sweeter finish.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2012 Draught via Habitat pours a butterscotch slightly murky brown. Little head. Aroma is bourbin. Taste is sweet with some malts and vanilla. Ok but thin and needs more IMO.

Enjoyed on-tap @ Coles 735 MAIN in Lexington, KY for $6. Tapped from the Brown Wooden KBB Tap Handle w/ a Horse on the top into a 12oz Snifter Glass. Have enjoyed in bottle so wanted to give this version a try. Differences: Aroma- Tons of alcohol, bourbon, light single malt aromas. Very clean. Appearance- Received with no head at all. Has a deep golden/light copper body with decent clarity. Leaves a few suds behind. Flavor- Starts off very sweet and then winds down to all malt and light bourbon. Very light and almost no bitterness. Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Light-Medium Carbonation, Smooth, but VERY watered down... Not sure if there was a keg issue or just the way they do it in keg but mouthfeel wasn’t up to par. Overall Impression- I HIGHLY recommend you enjoying this from a bottle. For some reason it was watered down on the mouthfeel which took away from this great brew. However, this was very nice in bottle.

I tried this on-tap at Conway and O’Rielly’s in Janesville, WI in mid 2012. Pours a golden amber color with a strong bourbon scent. Strong crisp taste of bourbon that is silky smooth that is barrel aged to perfection. I though this was a lot better than what the rating reflect.

It poured a cloudy copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of fresh bourbon. The taste was of sweet caramel, some toffee and lots of bourbon. This was a very good bourbon barrel beer.
