COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What happens when you take our legendary Chicken Killer Barley Wine and let it take a long nap in a bourbon barrel? It turns into the palate-blowing liquid you hold in your hand. Our Kickiní Chicken Bourbon-Barrel Aged Barley Wine uses twice the ingredients of our other beers, but we extract only half the usual amount of liquid from them. Then itís barrel aged for 9 months. The result is a potent, smooth and flavorful concoction with bourbon-like undertones of vanilla and caramel. Know what itís like to be kicked in the mouth by a chicken? Youíre about to find out.

Aroma consists of bourbon, vanilla, molasses, and caramel. Taste is very astringent, almost solvent like. This is the third time I've had a Santa Fe barleywine and every time I get this solvent flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Shared by my good friend Dosbeerigos, thanks buddy! This had a good bit of bourbon in the aroma, but wasnít overly boozy to the taste. A pretty good barley wine, one that Iím glad I got to try.

Big BIG thanks to Doodler for reading my mind and send me this NM barleywine. I owe you man! The gold waxed 22oz bomber pours opaque copper with gold hues and supporting a short lived tan head of foam. The aroma offers up a tart sort of red wine note and then it starts to get into some oak, vanilla and bourbon. The taste is similar where Iím getting bourbon sliding into a barrel tartness and a bit of red wine. Wow, there is no beer left here but just vanilla, bourbon and a slight infection. Sure glad I didnít try and age this one.

Definitley notes of infection which is a shame because other than the tart fruit notes it is a good beer with lots of vanilla and caramel.

Tasted on 3/19/13 from a waxed and capped 650mL bomber bottle purchased at Quarterís in 2010. Pours clear dark burnt orange with a thin tan head that recedes to thin lace. The nose is full of sweet caramel and toffee with tons of oaky brown sugar and maple bourbon, some toasted bitterness, and just a touch of dill oak as well. The flavor is much the same with the toasted bitterness coming through nicely, the caramel and toffee maltiness are there as well as tons of bourbon. The body is full with just lighter than average carbonation and a long malty caramel and maple bourbon finish. The heat is not hidden on this one as well as the regular version.

It has nice brown amber color and a very small light brown head. I smell wood, vanilla, bourbon and sweet malt. I taste all of the same too, I can taste the alcohol in it. It is a barley wine so donít trip. I love the bourbon taste:)!
