Award-winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Aleģ is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Our Kentucky Aleģ is aged for up to six weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentuckyís 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.

This is an interesting one because although I applaud a brewer that thinks outside the box and tries to create a beer using new techniques, this one is a little bit of a bust. Great idea though, we have oaked aged beers, wine barrel aged beers, why not bourbon barrel aged beers? Great idea in theory, not so good in practice, the bourbon dominates both the aroma and flavor, and leaves what was probably a decent blond ale into an ultra sweet, butterscotch flavored beer. the first taste is not bad, but this is one of those that gets more annoying until the last mouthful is a chore.

Bottle. Pours clear amber with a medium-small, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma and flavor are butterscotch, bread, cookie, vanilla, bourbon, and oak. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation with a sweet finish.

The beer pours a clear medium gold with some orange highlights. The carbonation is bad, no head rises, no lacing, the beer looks oily. The aroma is pretty light, giving off light notes of vanilla, oak, and candy sugar at the end. The taste is really weird, there is some distinct vanilla but its combined with alcohol and sugar. The feel is super light and watery feeling without much of an aftertaste or feel. Drinkability is pretty good. Overall, this beer is really weird. Its like drinking a light barrel ris thatís combined with a pilsner. Not a great combo.

12oz Bottle. Pours a rich copper color with medium off-white head. Nose is full of the whiskey smell along with a nice malty sweetness. Taste is heavy on the bourbon with some vanilla and a slight fruity sweetness as well. This beer is fantastic on the palate - very smooth and well balanced.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Big in your face whiskey in the nose. This beer has so much going on it is difficult to keep up. Call it brandy. A big theme was movie theater candy. There was that whiskey. Vanilla, dark fruit, and attitude. Wow.

12 oz. bottle, pours pale golden with a white head. Aroma of cider, bourbon and apple. Flavour is heavy on bourbon, citrus and apple. Very oaky and alcoholic finish. Pretty thin and uncomplex. Decent.

Bottle from Utobeer drunk at home. Clear bright orange amber colour. Very thin white head. Oh boy, even from the aroma, I know Iím not going to like this. Yes lots of bourbon on the aroma. I mean if I wanted to drink bourbon, Iíd drink bourbon. But I donít. I want to drink beer. So as a beer almost entirely pointless. Otherwise nothing really wrong with it, except it reminds me of Innis & Gunn beers which isnít always a good thing. Yep, this just isnít my kind of beer.
