COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

A very simple beer. Taste and aroma of wood, bourbon and rye. Not much to complex, plain and a little boring.

oobawa (1204) - Tennessee, USA - MAY 8, 2017
Massive rye whisky bomb, dry and boozy as hell, the liquor pretty much the dominant characteristic. Some caramel comes through, maybe a bit of toffee and chocolate, but mostly we get rye whisky and nothing but rye whisky. Mild oak on the finish, maybe a hint of floral hop bitterness. Probably not. Might as well get a shot.
