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.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. I really enjoy the regular version of this beer, so I am expecting good things from Kickin Chicken. The beer pours an amber color with a white head. The aroma is full of caramel malt and alcohol, but I donít get as much barrel aging notes as I expected. The flavor is a little different and a little bit better. I get a lot caramel and toffee malt, as well as some pine from the hops and some alcohol. I also get some maple and bourbon notes, but they are still fainter than expected. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(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.

JK (5571) - 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.

nuplastikk (5570) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2013
22oz bomber. 35th birthday present from Elise. Thick, unfiltered viscous brown amber. Oily thin head. Rich and boozy, thick, sweet bourbon caramel tones. Tastes like they added bourbon to a beer barrel. Intense. Firmly planted in the Barley Wine style, which I fully appreciate, but also fully showing off rich barrel tones.
