COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale™ With a little creative curiosity, we used spent bourbon casks, fresh from decanting, and filled them with our very own Kentucky Ale. From barrels that once held the finest bourbons of Kentucky, we present Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, a smooth, golden elixir unlike any other. Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrel. We attribute this to what the bourbon maker calls the “angel’s share”. Elegantly smooth and modestly carbonated, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale is a fine sipping ale with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted Kentucky bourbon.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 19, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of jsquire. Clear, deep golden with a small, off-white head. Distinct bourbon aroma. Medium body with lightly sweet caramel but otherwise completely dominated by smooth bourbon flavours. The finish is dry. Quite intriguing an idea to bourbon barrel such a "small beer". 180907

Hazy amber beer, little white head. Light softish palate. Very sweet orange and cream soda soft drinks! Vanilla oak. Finishes dry. An odd odd beer. Pretty good for half a glass - but that was more than enough!

fiulijn (14609) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 18, 2007
Hazy golden color. Funky aroma, of light Bourbon vanilla, candies and glue. Sweet mouthfeel, with some sweet vanilla too (which is not bad), but lacking of other elements. It has a nice Bourbon vanilla touch, but the rest is missing. And it’s quite strange.
