COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

This ale poured a amber colour with not much of a head at all. To the nose there was scents of bourbon, butter and alcohol. First sip was buttery with smoke flavour. Notes of whiskey, buttered veggies and ???. Almost an oily mouthfeel. The finnish is thick and full of bourbon flavour.

On tap at Oxford, OH. Pours orange with a long lasting white head. Nose is of caramel, tropical fruit, vanilla and cacao. Body is medium, crisp. Taste is funky yeast, vanilla, alcohol, topical fruit, citrus, bourbon, and cacao. Finish is medium and semi-dry. Interesting brew.

Nose has a hint of bourbon. Deep apricot body with a chill haze. No head/lace. Sweet caramel and bourbon flavor.

(bottle). The aroma is boozy and woody along with the flavor. Not as refined as advertised. A disappointment. Many brewers use Bourbon barrel aging to compliment well craft brewed beers. These barrels attempt to mask a poorly brewed ale over a cheap whiskey flavor. Sorry Ashley.

a really odd beer. It’s not really an American strong ale, its a pale ale with a half a shot of bourbon added. There is a reason people don’t age pale ale’s the results are not really good.
