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.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 Vielen Dank an Sean für dieses Bier! Toller Geruch nach Burbon Whisky. Hellorangene Farbe im Glas. Der Antrunk ist sehr mild, keinerlei Alkohol spürbar. Toll weich. Milde Burbon-Töne mit einem kleinen Hauch von Lakritz. Weiches Malz, angenehm vanillig-süßlich. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang, burbon-weich, angenehm, vanillig, rund toll!
--> Sehr tolles Bier. Der Alkohol nirgendwo herauszuschmekcne, aromenvoll, faszinieren. Ich würde sagen, eins der Besten amerikanischen Biere, die ich bis jetzt getrunken habe. Weder extrem süß, noch extrem aufdringlich, extrem herb oder extrem alkoholisch! Sehr zu empfehlen! (21.2.2011) --> Noten: 12,15,13,14,12,15 - 14,10

Dark urine colored. Bubbly head. Nose is EXCELLENT- definite whiskey notes; pure Jack Daniels. Tastes almost like a Jack and soda. Very inventive. I can’t believe that it comes out to only 4.5% because it tastes much stronger. A winner for sure.

Actually bought a pack of this direct from the brewery while on vacation. Pours out a nice ambery color, smells like... you guesed it, bourbon. Taste is fantastic, again, like bourbon, but a bit sweeter. I absolutely love this stuff. I need more. My friends and I went through the entire supply the hotel we stayed at had in their bar over the course of a weekend.

First bourbon flavored ale I’ve had. Loved how it looked and smelled like bourbon with just a suttle taste of bourbon. Wish it tasted a little more oakey. Prost.

caught me by suprise, the bourbon smell and taste were just right with a vanilla flavor and a nice roasted malt . Very drinkable, be carefull for the high gravity sets a very mellow feeling quickly.

On draught at One Eyes Jacks in Fairborn, OH. Very flavorful of oak with a vanilla finish. No head, darker amber color. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a oak aged ale with a sweeter finish.

Super great bourbon ale. Not what I expected but in good way. Thin and light with a warming affect for those cold winters nights. Exception. A must for a relaxing ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I love this beer. It’s alcohol content is fairly high, and it’s a little sweet (it’s the whiskey taste) for some people, but it’s very smooth, with the oak flavor of the bourbon coming through. It’s also not so carbonated, very smooth. I’d call it a coffee hater’s alternative to Guinness. :) The stout is hoppier, but this is a dessert beer.

Wow the bourbon ale is outstanding. Catch them when the tasting room is open. Subtle taste of bourbon. vanillia overtones quite smooth.
