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.

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

Wow. Almost suspect artificial vanilla notes. Very buttery after taste. Nice color if it picked anything up from the barrel it was the color, next to nothing for aroma. Beer is surprisingly sweetish in mouthfeel, but not in taste.

Pours an amber color with a moderate head. I detected a taste of cherry, not unpleasant. Still, the boldness of a creative ale was not there. But I continued to drink and enjoy an unusual beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12oz bottle from old town. Pours a copper Amber color with a small off-white head. Vanilla, bourbon, caramel on the nose. Tastes fairly sweet and slightly rich. Average carbonation. Long smooth sweet finish. Kind of below average for a bourbon barreled beer.

Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak. Not my palate, but I gave it a shot.

Smooth easy drinking ale. Hint of malt and nutty bread. Easy on the palate and simple. Nothing complicated yet decent.

I loved this beer but then again, I love whiskey so there you go. If you like whiskey this beer offers a unique combination of great flavors.

Toen ik de beschrijving las, dacht ik dat dit in de buurt zou komen van de speciale edities van La Trappe of zo. De kleur is heel helder, de geur valt goed mee, maar de smaak is maar flets en teleurstellend. Ik had veel beter verwacht van dit bier

Not gonna spend much time reviewing this. In the end it is a below average beer that lacked in all areas from start to finish.

Draft in Nyc. Clear copper orange. Sweet malty muddle aroma. Corn. Sweet, a little orange malt. Creamy body. Muddled, boutbon barrel I suppose. But nothing great on the base
