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.

I enjoyed Kentucky Bourbon Ale. It hardly tastes like beer. It’s more like a gentle southern bourbon and very sweet at that. Like a strong southern accent though, it would probably wear on me after a while.

On tap at The Beer Growler in Decatur, GA. Light caramel color with a beige head. Sweet, rounded body. Distinctive bourbon taste but not accompanied by the alcoholic strength of bourbon. Very good

Pours a clean amber color with a half finger head... Aromas are overwhelming burnt sugar with hints of oak, vanilla and bourbon. Flavors are very smooth with a rich mouthfeel and a heavy sweet caramel backdrop but not syrupy. Nice flavors of earthy oak, vanilla and a subtle hint of bitter hops to make it a little more refreshing than I though it would be. Not bad at all.

Had straight out of the bottle. Sweet tasting ale upfront with a malty bourbon flavor all the way through to the end. Expectations were low, but I was pleasantly suprised. Enjoyable ale that I would drink again.

Nice orangy golden light brown, tiny off white head. Aroma wood, vanilla, alcohol. Full body and a little syrupy although not too sweet. Flavor is oaky and indeed like bourbon maybe a little too much so. Different for sure and not really bad but don’t think I would get it again.

Basically a vanilla bourbon barrel soda. Quality barrel flavor... over nothing else, tons of toasted coconut in the aroma and flavor. Tasty, just odd, thin, well carbonated...

Is it possible for it too be too bourboney? Strong aroma and flavor of bourbon. Better than expected.

Bottle. Pours surprisingly light and clear, with a medium white head. Aroma is faint - sweet malts, with a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is also surprisingly muted, a little bit bready with a nice vanilla sweetness. Not much bourbon comes through, although a bit of oakiness is there. It’s an easy sipper that hides its ABV well, but also kind of dull.

Has a light wood/toffee scent. Pours a nice amber with a dissolving head. Has a nice bourbon flavor, has a decent sweetness to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
