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.

Growler purchased at the party palace. Pours orange and clear with no head. Vanilla is the predominant aroma and maybe some wood hints and sweetness. Buttery? Sweet (but not syrupy) with oak vanilla and cotton candy hints. Creamy mouth feel and buttery came to mind again. Funky stuff. Itís like whiskey cream ale.

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.

A dissapointment for sure, especially considering the cost of this beer. The aroma is nice enough--plenty of sweet bourbon notes, almost candy-like. The appearance was a light amber color with a white head. Taste was very one-sided--too much bourbon flavor overpowering whatever ale was used to make this beer. Moutfheel is thin and watery.

12 oz. bottle pours a clear red/amber color with small white head. Smells of beer but tastes like marzipan candy. Aroma is full of butter, sugar, vanilla, oak and caramel. Bourbon is barely noticeable. Taste is sweet, and body is medium. Alcohol is well hidden. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy, without too much carbonation. Not a great beer, but very different from anything else Ive tried so far.

Pours clear copper with a small ring of white fizz. Smells a bit like bourbon, not much else. Taste is cloying bourbon sweetness. Full-bodied with a slick texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale finishes with a cloying sweetness that doesnít go away. I do not recommend this.

355ml bottle at BePLUS Beer Club, Xiamen. Pours golden amber with a thin white head. Big vanilla and bourbon aroma. Sweet finish. Didnít really use to like this style but itís growing on me.

Pours a deep golden with a small off white head. The aroma is nice with hints of bourbon, vanilla, and caramel malt. The flavor has a very distinctive bourbon taste with some hops, vanilla, and caramel.

Obtained through my 1st trade, thanks again Louis. Poured a clear copper color with a thin head and little bits of lacing. The aroma is of whiskey, very upfront and aggressive. Notes of caramel and vanilla help add to a warm, inviting scent. Medium bodied with a smooth quality and a drawn out aftertaste that finishes slightly thin. Unmistakable flavor of bourbon on the rocks blended with nutty, sweet malts, vanilla and grass. Dry and warming, it drinks like a big beer and demands ample time be taken to fully enjoy this unique offering.

A friend brought this over and had opened it previously, so there was very little carbonation present in this beer. It poured amber in color with no head whatsoever. Aroma of whisky, malt. Flavor is very much like bourbon to me, as if someone took an amber ale with little flavor and mixed it with bourbon. Mouthfeel is flat, but I donít blame that on the beer. Goes down smooth, like a sipping whisky. Overall, flavorful and nice, but I wish I had gotten a fresh batch. Iíll re-rate it if I do.
