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.

bhensonb (14890) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 18, 2012
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.

On tap at Cardinal. Deep golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is bourbon, malt, vanilla, wood. Flavour is bourbon, vanilla, malt, wood, alcohol. Full body. OK beer.

Ferris (14380) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2014
Bottle - Sweet whiskey grain notes. Clear copper with a thin head. Oak, grain and light bourbon notes. Much lighter than expected with sweet barrel noes vs the heavy bourbon.

Ratman197 (14372) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 15, 2009
Bottle poured a clear amber with a lingering off white head. Aromas of bourbon, oak, vanilla and light carmel. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth finish. Flavors of bourbon, oak, vanilla, carmel and light fruittiness with a smooth lingering bourbon finish.

Tmoney99 (14199) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 4, 2005
Draft. Tried the other two brews from this maker to compare to this at the end. I like bourbon and barrel aged brews that are mostly stouts. This clearly is a different taste due to the fact that they used their ale as the base and the medium fizzy body and texture. Very interesting and good.

DSG (13906) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 5, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariels place. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear deep golden to amber color. Aroma of malt, lots of vanilla, wood, toffee, nutty notes, a bit of bourbon and a slightly alcoholic finish. Medium-bodied. OK, but heavy and not really my thing.
