Our first barrel aged beer here at Against the Grain is the Kentucky Ryed Chiquen. Named so because: 1. It was made in Kentucky. 2. It has a lot of Rye in it and was aged in rye barrels. and 3. It is not Chicken, and as we all know (or should know) Chiquen refers to anything that is not chicken. Brewed with Maris Otter, rye malt and caramel rye, imparting a spicy, fruity and dry flavor. Then hopped with enough English Nugget and Kent Goldings just to balance and fermented with our house ale yeast. After fermentation we moved the entire batch into the AtG private dining room and into used Redemption Rye barrels from our good friends at Strongs Spirits. There it aged for 5 weeks until we felt it had picked up the right amount of residual bourbon character and oak flavors. We then transferred it to our serving tank, carbonated it and the end result is on tap now, a balanced drinkable and complex barrel aged beer.

Dogbrick (12383) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 28, 2014
Brewdog levels of bottle gimmickery aside, the beer pours a hazy reddish-brown color with a medium light beige head that diminishes steadily. Partial rings of lacing. Aroma of rye whisky, fruit and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of spicy rye, booze, caramel malt and ripe fruit. The finish is oaky vanilla and spiced rye. Above average overall.

Tasted from the tap on the 04/02/2017. Orange to amber colour with a big off-white head. Aroma of sweet fruits, caramel and spices. More wood on the taste than in the aroma. Taste has some spices, hints of caramel and sweet fruits. Next one please!

Bif (2144) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - FEB 5, 2017
On tap. Pours a dark mahogany color with a small head. Aroma of fairly muted with rye, bit of caramel and dark fruit. Taste of caramel, dark fruit and rye. No real bitterness and fairly clean finish. Moderate body, smooth with a slight malty feel. No hint of the 8.6% ABV. enjoyable beer to relax with.

willisread (3028) - Owensboro, Kentucky, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Tap at Js. Pours a clear, deep gold to light amber with a half-finger of foam that dissipates quickly. Malty nose with some light caramel and rye bread notes. Clean and crisp amber. Faint barrel notes on the finish: vanilla and whisky and more malt.

Very sweet aroma, slight maize and bourbon. Flavor is much like the aroma. Sweet, light bourbon, light rye. Thin across the palate.

Fra flaske (kveldens siste) p Mi2 Cardinal nov-16: lett uklar lys gylden med ok skum. Interessant duft og smak av karamell, krydder, grillet kjtt, og appelsiner sammen med rugsyre og noe br. En fin avslutning p nok en hyggelig kveld!

ogniskowicz (774) - POLAND - OCT 12, 2016
Sporo aromatu beczki pod postacią mokrego drewna z dodatkiem czerwonych owocw, lekkiego karmelu i pikanterii żyta. W smaku pełne, lekko oleiste, wytrawnie karmelowe z lekką kwaskowatością i świetnym już stricte bourbonowym finiszem. Świetne !
