12oz bottle from Armanetti’s. Pours a crystal clear, deeper gold colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates quickly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is thin bourbon and vanilla with a bit of a buttery malt backing. Flavor is vanilla and bourbon with a thin, slightly sour butter malt backing. Finishes thin and dry from the wood before leaving a medium length aftertaste. Overall, this is a pretty bad beer. Straight vanilla and bourbon with a thin, buttery, slightly sour malt backing. At least it looked good. brian60625 (746) - Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2012
I enjoyed Kentucky Bourbon Ale. It hardly tastes like beer. It’s more like a gentle southern bourbon and very sweet at that. Like a strong southern accent though, it would probably wear on me after a while. leah2974 (453) - Georgia, USA - MAY 16, 2012
On tap at The Beer Growler in Decatur, GA. Light caramel color with a beige head. Sweet, rounded body. Distinctive bourbon taste but not accompanied by the alcoholic strength of bourbon. Very good Lukaduke (3206) - Gray, Maine, USA - MAY 14, 2012
Pours a clean amber color with a half finger head... Aromas are overwhelming burnt sugar with hints of oak, vanilla and bourbon. Flavors are very smooth with a rich mouthfeel and a heavy sweet caramel backdrop but not syrupy. Nice flavors of earthy oak, vanilla and a subtle hint of bitter hops to make it a little more refreshing than I though it would be. Not bad at all. michcam8 (559) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2012
Had straight out of the bottle. Sweet tasting ale upfront with a malty bourbon flavor all the way through to the end. Expectations were low, but I was pleasantly suprised. Enjoyable ale that I would drink again.

Nice orangy golden light brown, tiny off white head. Aroma wood, vanilla, alcohol. Full body and a little syrupy although not too sweet. Flavor is oaky and indeed like bourbon maybe a little too much so. Different for sure and not really bad but don’t think I would get it again. 17thfloor (2443) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Basically a vanilla bourbon barrel soda. Quality barrel flavor... over nothing else, tons of toasted coconut in the aroma and flavor. Tasty, just odd, thin, well carbonated... demmbonz (732) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2012
Is it possible for it too be too bourboney? Strong aroma and flavor of bourbon. Better than expected. TOSG55 (223) - Cambridge, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2012
Bottle. Pours surprisingly light and clear, with a medium white head. Aroma is faint - sweet malts, with a hint of dark fruit. The flavor is also surprisingly muted, a little bit bready with a nice vanilla sweetness. Not much bourbon comes through, although a bit of oakiness is there. It’s an easy sipper that hides its ABV well, but also kind of dull. XmnwildX12 (2079) - Farmington, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2012
Has a light wood/toffee scent. Pours a nice amber with a dissolving head. Has a nice bourbon flavor, has a decent sweetness to it.
