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.

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.

From my NM friend Gabriel! Reddish/brown pour with a nice white head. Caramel, bourbon, honey, oak, fresh cane syrup aroma. Flavor is a wonderful liquid caramel aroma with bourbon, toffee, tiny bitterness at the end. Awesome.

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.

Beer 6000, by mistake :) I am not a big fan of Chicken Killer, but this still held potential. I’ve had a couple nice Santa Fe beers. In the end, this came SOOOOO close tobeing REALLY good, but the fault(s) were too much to overlook. Aroma out of the bottle was BIG vanilla and wood and malt. Very nice. But upon pouring, a little astringency (like you’d find in an off bottle of scotch ale). Slight, but there. The flavor starts out super sweet, but super smooth, but than BAM...that same lemony astringency hits you right before you swallow. Got better as it warmed, but never went away. Otherwise a superb barreled BW, but hard to get past.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber with an off-white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grains, with some vanilla, a bit of apple and a backing bourbon note. Flavor has apple, sweet grains, caramel and some bourbon in the finish.
