The aroma is caramel, bourbon, wood, and hops. The appearance is amber with a small head. The taste has the elements from the aroma but also a overpowering chemical bitterness and a strange but not unwelcome pineapple finish. The palate is average. Overall both good and bad so really hard to rate.

12 oz. Clear copper with a lasting creaming disc of foam. Nose is whiskey, cherry and caramel. Tastes of whiskey, mint, caramel apple and bitter wood. Medium-heavy body is fairly smooth with carbonation and is strangely in balance despite swinging wildly from sweet to wooden bitter.

wxman (1414) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Pours a clear amber with a thin off white head. No lace. Aroma of cheap bourbon and caramel corn. Taste is sweet caramel malt, booze, burnt sugar, melted margarine and a sizable amount of bitterness. Not well balanced at all. At $14.99 per 4 pack, too pricey considering the lack of quality.

Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Barley Wine (2014 Limited Release) has a thin-to-medium off-white head, a mostly clear, rust-red color, some bubble streams, and light lacing left on the glass. The aroma is of sweetness, bourbon barrels, and alcohol. Taste is of bourbon, wood, vanilla, very sweet malt, and a slight balancing bitterness. Mouthfeel is light-to-medium, and Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Barley Wine 2014 finishes semi-dry and surprisingly easy drinking. The alcohol warmth kicks in with the sipping. RJT
