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.

growler. clear pale amber with almost no head. sweet caramel candy aroma with notes of butter. flavor of buttery biscuit with werthers candy flavors or even those caramel creams(bulls eyes) with the white vanilla surrounded by the chewy caramel things. barrel and bourbon notes are light and not overpowering. low carbonation and silky. lightish body. would have never guessed the abv. i like it.

On draught at One Eyes Jacks in Fairborn, OH. Very flavorful of oak with a vanilla finish. No head, darker amber color. I would recommend to anyone who enjoys a oak aged ale with a sweeter finish.

UPDATED: AUG 9, 2012 Draught via Habitat pours a butterscotch slightly murky brown. Little head. Aroma is bourbin. Taste is sweet with some malts and vanilla. Ok but thin and needs more IMO.

Enjoyed on-tap @ Coles 735 MAIN in Lexington, KY for $6. Tapped from the Brown Wooden KBB Tap Handle w/ a Horse on the top into a 12oz Snifter Glass. Have enjoyed in bottle so wanted to give this version a try. Differences: Aroma- Tons of alcohol, bourbon, light single malt aromas. Very clean. Appearance- Received with no head at all. Has a deep golden/light copper body with decent clarity. Leaves a few suds behind. Flavor- Starts off very sweet and then winds down to all malt and light bourbon. Very light and almost no bitterness. Mouthfeel- Medium Bodied, Light-Medium Carbonation, Smooth, but VERY watered down... Not sure if there was a keg issue or just the way they do it in keg but mouthfeel wasnt up to par. Overall Impression- I HIGHLY recommend you enjoying this from a bottle. For some reason it was watered down on the mouthfeel which took away from this great brew. However, this was very nice in bottle.

I tried this on-tap at Conway and ORiellys in Janesville, WI in mid 2012. Pours a golden amber color with a strong bourbon scent. Strong crisp taste of bourbon that is silky smooth that is barrel aged to perfection. I though this was a lot better than what the rating reflect.

It poured a cloudy copper color with an off-white head. The aroma was of fresh bourbon. The taste was of sweet caramel, some toffee and lots of bourbon. This was a very good bourbon barrel beer.

Bottle from Liz. Pours clear orange amber with a slight, transient white head. Aroma is mostly bourbon/vanilla with a hint of oak. Med body. Its rather sweet, with hints of treacle. The oak is identifiable, and the bourbon/vanilla is clearly present. Yet it is not a strongly flavored ale. Heat is marginally detectable. Finishes on the non-dry side. It has a caramel sugar candy aspect. But the oak offsets that. Really interesting and pretty tasty.

wlajwl (6081) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2012 Aroma is bourbon and malts. The flavor is fruit, oak, dark fruit/raisins/prunes, a hint of tea, tobacco and a mix of tartness and some alcohol in the finish.
