One of my favorites. An incredibly smooth beer with the perfect amount of bourbon taste.

On Draught at the Beer Cellar Indianapolis. You can really smell the bourbon in the pour. Tastes amazing and the bourbon really comes through. golden, minimal head, lightly sour, medium sweetness, light body. This is a good beer, especially on draught.

One of the best brews I’ve tasted. Malty vanilla flavor which goes down very smoothly. 9% ABV, but you can’t tell. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2011 Poured from bottle. WOW - oak / bourbon aroma is amazing. Clear amber, tan head, lacing. This really picks up the bourbon and oak from the barrel. Add in the vanilla and alcohol flavors. A touch of banana as well. These flavors complement each other so well. This is like an exotic dessert! Even better as it warms. An outstanding beer.

On tap at The Beer Growler in Decatur, GA. Light caramel color with a beige head. Sweet, rounded body. Distinctive bourbon taste but not accompanied by the alcoholic strength of bourbon. Very good

My current favorite beer. Very well balanced versus most other bourbon barrel beers. Nice on the palate, with a bourbon finish. Should be drank from a snifter for full effect and not overchilled. Many friends who do not consider themselves beer drinkers love this beer. Great change from the usual "heavier" bourbon barrel brews (stouts, porters).

Had this for the first time in an eatery in Lakewood Oh with a fresh ground burger, medium well, with a fried egg on top along with lettuce and tomato. Excellent beer. Now I need to find a store where I can buy this beer.

A unique brew that combines a smooth ale with the flavor and alcohol of Kentucky bourbon. I highly enjoy the regular Kentucky Ale as well. With an ABV of over 8% it packs a whallop and is perfect for dinner or exchanging wine for a fine craft brew.

Great balance of flavor and crispness. Much better on tap than in bottle. I’m not a fan of the bourbon barrel stouts. To heavy and cloying. This is an ale and for me they got it right.
