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.

Papsoe (25085) - 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

M82 (296) - Kansas, USA - MAY 10, 2013
22oz into 15.25oz Spiegelau Soiree Cognac snifter; pours up a murky deep copper with loosely structured off white head leaving thin, elongated splatters all around, half sheet persists; nose is bourbon and water with light fruits and very light caramel malts, as this warms, dates and very light tobacco come in, charred oak when reaching room temp; taste follows with a big expression of tropical fruit juice complexities, sour-ish oaky fruit notes, light fruity esters, minimal spice; after follows with mild toasted oak layers on a medium, smooth body; a lot to be said on this, yet I canít help but miss the big, deeper layers of something in a similar category such as Abacus, decent, and really quite unique with the big tropical fruit spiraling out from the bourbon characteristics

Murky brown colour with a small greyish white head. Sourness, berries and strong brett in a delicious aroma. Brett, whiskey sweetness, red berries, tartness and sourness in the flavour. Nice. Tasty.

brokensail (11085) - Orange County, 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. Thereís 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.

blipp (6148) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - APR 22, 2012
Bottle. Pours amber with a beige head. Bourbony sweet aroma, with sweet caramel malt and light toasty notes. The flavor has bourbon, sweet caramel malts, and low bitterness. Decent.

flylikeabanana (179) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 28, 2013
An intriguing brew, the bourbon flavor comes through strong, but there are also notes of fruit and caramel. The initial palate sensation is acidic, wine-like. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
