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 Kentucky’s 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.

Smells of Bourbon but also has some sweet overtones to the aroma. It pours a dark gold/caramel color with a nice head and much carbonation. It tastes exactly how it smells, sweet and bourbon. It is remarkably easy to drink for such a high alcohol content. The high carbonation tickles the inside of my mouth. Overall a delicious brew.

Nice. Orange gold with white head. Aroma of bourbon and vanilla. Tastes of sweet vanilla, butterscotch and bourbon. Enjoyed this.

Amber pour, if you didn't get that from all the other reviews, I figure one more can't hurt. Whiskey smell for sure, definitely follows through in the taste. Great if you like whiskey ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Best in a snifter or chalice, however it’s OK from a pub glass too. Aroma is nice, you can smell the bourbon, and there’s a vanilla and butterscotch aroma. It gets your attention. Pours a light copper color with a modest head. The bourbon flavor adds a nice kick to what would otherwise be a mild ale. It’s a nice finishing touch to an evening.

You had me at Bourbon....saw this one and had to try it. Pours clear light orange out of bottle. White head that has a little staying power. Not much of an aroma at all.... Has a bizarre taste, kind of medicinal. Was not what I had expected...

Weakest bourbon barrel ale, with nasty vanilla finish. Weak in everything: aroma, appearance, taste, palate, and finish.

Pours coppery color with no head to speak of. Nice aroma of caramel, vanilla, and oak. Flavor does not live up to aroma. Washed out woody flavor and extremely flat. Meh.

Bottle. Poured light golden color with no head. Distinct vanilla, bourbon, and butter notes but a bit weak. I prefer Innis & Gunn’s offering over this one.

Not pleasing, tastes like watered down bourbon. Very little carbonation, finishes very hard.

A unique brew that combines a smooth ale with the flavor and alcohol of Kentucky bourbon. I highly enjoy the regular Kentucky Ale as well. With an ABV of over 8% it packs a whallop and is perfect for dinner or exchanging wine for a fine craft brew.
