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.

Aroma is a sweet bourbon. Taste is a sweet yet bitter and almost wood with a very bourbon-like taste. Overall very different but good.

This was some really good beer. Cloudy copper colored beer with a thin, off-white head. Strong aromas of fresh bourbon. Tastes of sweet caramel, some toffee, and lots of slightly watered down bourbon. A bit cloying, with a sweet, boozy finish. I thoroughly enjoyed this, and would recommend it to any fan of bourbon, or sweeter beers.

on draft pours our amber color with white head that doesnt last very long . the aroma of bourbon is dominate and you cant get much past that. the flavor is unique being cloyingly sweet and bourbon. this was served pretty much about 45 degrees and it was good. but if you dont like overly sweet bourbon you are not going to like this one.

Very sweet, thought I was sipping on a whiskey light, aroma of bourbon, amber color, poured in a 10 ounce glass on tap, one of these was enough for me

GuamVice (72) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Serving type: bottle Appearance: Pours a medium gold tone. 1/4 in foam head. Medium body. Aroma: lots of pineapple, vanilla, and butterscotch. Taste: Like a butterscotch beer. No hop taste. . Very sweet...almost too sweet. Overall: Was really hoping to like this, but just comes out very average. Probably would be good for a beginner to beer or wood aged beer. Otherwise, too sweet and cloying for most beer nerds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

1/15/12. 12oz bottle. Clear amber pour with a small khaki head that fades. Weird aroma that is a touch sour, has caramel, and bits of wood and vanilla. Ugh. Sweet flavor of caramel with tart ketchup and a bit of soy sauce underneath vanilla and charred wood. BLECH.

Copper color with a thin and foamy white head. Vanilla aroma and a strong bourbon taste. The body is smooth and crisp.

Trade with drowland - thanks! 12 oz bottle - pours a brilliant dark copper with a thin white head. Aroma is that of bottom shelf bourbon - a hint of rye. Flavor has a bourbon essence permeating throughout, some vanilla notes, and some scotch and water essence....like how it tastes when the ice has all melted. Mouthfeel is a bit thinner than the flavor would suggest. Usually not a barrel aged fan - but this one goes down nice.
