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.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - APR 3, 2012
The pour is a light amber color with minimal head formation. Starts off with lots of bourbon and vanilla notes. There’s a hint of oxidation in there too. Quite a nice fruit quality to this: raisin, plum, and grape. Plenty of caramel and toffee of course, too. The flavor has a nice touch of bourbon and vanilla long with a bit of oak. Not quite as much fruit, but still good. Caramel, toffee, and a bit of brown sugar are also present. Solid all around barleywine.

JoePeesie (924) - Long Lake, Illinois, USA - MAR 26, 2012
Not sure of the vintage. Pours a nice cloudy brown orange with almost no head. The BBAing was done very nicely with this beer. Warm, sweet, malty, a bit boozy very drinkable and quite tasty I would definitely grab a few more of these to lay dawn and enjoy over the next few years if given the opportunity!

Amber pour with creamy tan head and lace. Brown sugar and dates on the aroma. Brown sugar, light dried fruit, and a nice abv warmth. Medium bodied but just a tad thin.

JK (5735) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JAN 11, 2012
Bad bourbon aroma and alcohol burn. Overwhelming flavor of bourbon. Brown, and virtually no carbonation. Boozy and unpleasant, and very dry. The high alcohol content with teh bourbon makes this virtually undrinkable to my palate.

thirdeye11 (6059) - Dallas, Texas, USA - AUG 14, 2011
(22oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) cloudy honey brown color with soapy edge bubbles. Nose of bourbon, honey, caramel, and a bit of chlorine. Taste of honey, big alcohol, caramel, sweet grain, and a bit hot in the finish. Big, bold, and decadent overall.
