Bourbon barrel ale ain’t no joke. This one tastes as much of bourbon as it does of beer. Unfortunately, as this is a beer, that means it is way too sweet.

Bottle. Slight sweet bourbon aroma. Nice clear dark Amber color with little head & low carbonation. Smooth taste, with a nice light bourbon barrel flavor. Appropriate medium body. Nice, easy drinking beer. Doesn’t taste as strong as it is.

Bottle 0,335ltr: Clear amber colored brew with an sweet bitter taste and fair hints of Bourbon aromas. Not bad but i must say an easy Barrel Aged beer for once, and my first Kentucky tick.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Really nice looking amber pour with an off white head. Nice vanilla, toffee, wood, and bourbon aroma. Taste is like a $3 shot and a beer special with added vegetables and buttery aftertaste. Medium slick palate.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
Smells just like balsamic vinegar. Like exactly like balsamic vinegar. Blind taste test Me.... I won’t know the difference. Tomatoes. Acidic.
Looks.... How to put this gently.... Lame? Minimal Budweiseresc head dissipates instantly. Color is light... Amber.
Tastes like balsamic vinegar. Hints of onion tomato durian. Hint of malt on the finish.
Palate is light... Fades decently.
Got this because I had heard rumors it was good. And it seems to be everywhere around. But maybe that’s because no one is buying. Nearly un drinkable. Like drinking vinegar.

Poured ino tulip a nice Amber with white head that receded to sides of glass, some lacing. Roma was caramel, oak, sweet. Taste was sweet oak, caramel with a lot of vanillia. Good co2 and a very drinkable smooth body. I didn’t get much bourbon in the nose or mouth. Good for football games because it’s a easy drinker, not bad.
