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.

Scrapersnbeer's rating

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 12/20
Scrapersnbeer (1532) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Aroma is of bourbon barrel wood and its usual attendant vanilla. Approximate appearance of heated maple syrup. Tastes a bit smokey and a lot of sweet. Cloying and sticky like a bock, only much more so. Not subtle.

UPDATED: AUG 14, 2017 Taste was very nice and smooth with a hint of bourbon. The color was a pleasant golden color...wish I had one now

Bottled. 15cl sample. The aroma has bourbon, caramel malt. Slightly hazy, copper coloured beer with a thin head. The taste is moderate sweet, has vanilla, caramel malt, biscuit, bit booze. Medium bodied beer. Lacks complexity.

Pours a brownish yellow. Cidery. Aroma is creamy buttery. Taste is more if the same. It's a little overly sweet but not too bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Biale slodkie winogrona przechodza w rodzynki, mieszaja sie z pumperniklem, fajnym karmelem, wspaniala, intensywna wanilia i delikatna nutka bourbonu, brzoskwini, oraz herbaty. Najwspanialsza jest wanilia, która laczy sie z delikatnymi herbatnikami! Goryczka bardzo niska, piwo slodkie, ale nie przeslodzone. Swietny stosunek cena/jakosc

Bottle from local supermarket. Really an ok beer, but not a well made bourbon barrel ale

colui72 (1054) - HONG KONG - JUN 29, 2017
Pours copper, fizzy, with a finger of cream head, with good sticky lacing. Aroma of caramel, butterscotch and Bourbon. Tastes is... good! So damn! tasty! butterscotch, caramel, molasses, bourbon, oak, ripe fruits. Some minimal tart notes, quite sweet with a very low bitterness. Smooth and creamy, fully bodied, softly carbonated, long finish. Loving this ale, delicious to me!

WillemsUrenkel (1901) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2017
12 fl oz bottle purchased at Sam The Beer Man, Binghamton NY. Pours out in a clear pale copper with a small head. Taste has definitive Bourbon elements. Boozy. Some sweetness, pale malt. Thins out to the end. Nothing really wrong but can not convince me.

Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - JUN 1, 2017
On tap at McGillicuddys, Five Corners, Essex Junction, VT. This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a dark brown color with a bar pours kind of slim cap of a head. Seemed to just trickle right on into the beer. The aroma had some super sweet wood to milk chocolate, subtle fudge, vanilla extract and some bubblegum. The flavor seemed to pull all of the prior mentioned aromas together super sweet and right on into the aftertaste and on into the finish. The palate was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine as well. Honestly, going to say, its a bit watery to be honest. Overall, hmmmm....the things I do just to get to my 6000th rating, well, honestly, its not that bad, but probably not one to desperately seek out again. Its really sweet all around.

Nice hint of bourbon in the smell. Smooth taste and a smooth finish, very low hint of hippiness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Was expecting more punch of bourbon, richness and smokiness. Got some recognizable flavors but felt watered down. Reviewed - A Brew With You, Ep. 71
