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 Kickin’ 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 it’s barrel aged for 9 months. The result is a potent, smooth and flavorful concoction with bourbon-like undertones of vanilla and caramel. Know what it’s like to be kicked in the mouth by a chicken? You’re about to find out.

Theis (12753) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 4, 2013
Bottle at Yespr’s - Thanks. Cloudy amber/brown - white head. Licorice, barley, roasted, spicy notes, bourbon, vanilla, amber malts, raisins, sweetness, a bit too much bourbon to my taste.

djd07 (2915) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Bottle as shown thanks to Kendall. Pours a murky brown with medium creamy beige head leaving sticky lacing along the glass. Thick mouthfeel with light roasted malt and caramel with light tartness in the finish. Hides alcohol decently, a good barley wine from Santa Fe.

Ungstrup (28448) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2013
Bottled. A hazy dark red beer with a thin tan head. The aroma has notes of alcohol, bourbon, malt, and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, wood, and a bit of bourbon, leading to a dry alcoholic finish. Thanks pinball for sharing.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2013
Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of Pinball. Pours a hazy deep amber with an off-white head. Very sweet and oaky Bourbon aroma. Rich body, thick burned caramel, slightly woody with a massive booziness. A very typical US-style Barleywine. Nice alright but perhaps a little rough and unrefined. 250213

yespr (29683) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - FEB 25, 2013

Beaver (1219) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 24, 2013
22 oz bottle. Pours ruby amber with a small creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is sweet sugary fruity candy, peppery alcohol, flowers and a little oakey bourbon.

The flavor is extremely sweet sugary candy and cola with some slightly tart fruits and some bitter alcohol in the finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some prickly carbonation.

Overall, it’s a bit of a mess - way too sweet and sugary.
