COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Award-winning Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale is a unique sipping beer with the distinctive nose of a well-crafted bourbon. Our Kentucky Ale is aged for up to six weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels from some of Kentuckys finest distilleries. Subtle yet familiar flavors of vanilla and oak are imparted to this special ale as it rests in the charred barrels. Pleasantly smooth and robust, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale may also be served as an aperitif or after-dinner drink. Launched in 2006, it has grown to become the flagship beer of the premier name in barrel-aged beers: Alltech Lexington Brewing and Distilling Company.

RuneStumo (2646) - Haugesund, NORWAY - MAR 28, 2013
16.03.2013. On tap at Cardinal, Stavanger. Golden colour with white head. Aroma of smooth vanilla bourbon with a soft malty tone. Very nice and soft aroma. Flavours is more vanilla and pretty obvious bourbon notes. Medium body and moderate good bitterness.

DuffMan (10072) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle. Brassy golden colour with a brief white head. Aroma is full of oaky vanilla, very buttery, with just a hint of sour wood. The palate is sweet, and is dominated by rye whiskey flavours with an anemic grainy pale malt structure lending poor support. This was much like Innis & Gunn Original, but harsher and with even less malt support if thats possible. Not my thing at all.

BillKismet (3991) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Light brassy color, with nice, off-white cover. Feint bourbon wood aromatics, mixed with a swish of maple syrup and vanilla.Whiskey flavors push through onto the palate, albeit the body is on the thin side. A bit like a depth charge of a pale lager beer and a shot of whiskey. Coconut finish.

high_on_hops (809) - Burlingame, California, USA - MAR 21, 2013
On tap. Pours a medium amber red with a foamy off-white head and lacing. It has a nice aroma of bourbon and vanilla with some woody notes, and the flavor is definite bourbon up front with some more vanilla, a slightly malty middle and bourbon aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

pkbites (910) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Pours a coppery orangy yellow with a slightly beige head. Great nose of vanilla, caramel, and oak. Flavor is a bit astringent. The alcohol is present. Woody, grainy on the palate. But its also thick like caramel. Lots of burnt sugar present. Nice! This is actually the first bourbon barrel beer Ive had where I could actually detect the flavor of bourbon whiskey in. A LOT! Almost like a shot was dropped into the beer like a boilermaker. Ive rated this brewers other offerings rather low, but I have to say, they are trying really hard to make great brews. This one is a winner! Bottle from Breeze Through, Wauwatosa, Wisconsin.

50belair (3576) - Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2013
On tap at the Funky Buddha. Clear amber pour with a white head. Low end bourbon nose. Cheap ass bourbon and cola with turpentine highlights. This is so bad, I dont know where to start.
