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.

Hazy golden color. Funky aroma, of light Bourbon vanilla, candies and glue. Sweet mouthfeel, with some sweet vanilla too (which is not bad), but lacking of other elements. It has a nice Bourbon vanilla touch, but the rest is missing. And its quite strange.

harrisoni (17685) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2011
Bottle from Utobeer drunk at home. Clear bright orange amber colour. Very thin white head. Oh boy, even from the aroma, I know Im not going to like this. Yes lots of bourbon on the aroma. I mean if I wanted to drink bourbon, Id drink bourbon. But I dont. I want to drink beer. So as a beer almost entirely pointless. Otherwise nothing really wrong with it, except it reminds me of Innis & Gunn beers which isnt always a good thing. Yep, this just isnt my kind of beer.

yngwie (16760) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 14, 2013
On tap at Bakgrde Bde &. It pours a clear, dark golden to amber body under a small, off-white head. In my opinion, theres too much vanilla on the nose, of the bourbon kind, followed by some wood, alcohol and caramel. A little fruity touch in the far back. Malt driven flavor with vanilla, caramel and a faint fruity touch. Full body, with a little warmth. Theres a little bitterness in the very end. Not my preferred beer in any way, theres too much focus on the bourbon, but its drinkable and all that. Wont buy another one though. 130404

12 oz. bottle, pours pale golden with a white head. Aroma of cider, bourbon and apple. Flavour is heavy on bourbon, citrus and apple. Very oaky and alcoholic finish. Pretty thin and uncomplex. Decent.

Bottle, 8.19% at BBF13. Weak malty aroma. Clear dark golden colour. Small white head. Vanilla, liqueur, marzipan flavour. Disappointing.
