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.

Medium orange pour with whtie head into a 9 oz snifter. Vanilla and caramel in the nose. Creamy vanilla and toffee taste. Not tasting the barrel but pretty good.

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 (916) - 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 (3590) - 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.

ClubGonzo (5663) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAR 16, 2013
On tap @ Cardinal, Stavanger. Aroma is caramel vanilla and hints of grains. Taste is vanilla, caramel, oak, grains and hints of wood. Taste is deep sweet caramel, wood, vanilla and grains. Thin body, mild carbonation. Peated, with loads of vanilla but still OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Cardinal. Deep clear sparkling golden with a dense beige head. Pungent bourbon barrel nose. Sweet, light buttery and aromatic. Medium bodied. Not necessary to taste again.

Great balance of flavor and crispness. Much better on tap than in bottle. Im not a fan of the bourbon barrel stouts. To heavy and cloying. This is an ale and for me they got it right.

Holmen1 (5699) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 12, 2013
Fra fat p Cardinal: en overveldende aroma og smak av vanilje, p ingen mte subtil sllik bryggeriet selv pstr. Helt ute av balanse - nesten ingen humlebitterhet til matche sdmen og for lite karbonering til skape den ndvendige friskhet. Hverken Henning eller jeg likte denne. Dessuten alt for dyr, 99 kr for et 0,3 glass. Thumbs down.
