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.

Bottle. Pours a clear, medium copper color with a thin white head. Interesting aroma of cherry, bourbon, vanilla, and oak. The aroma slightly reminds me of New Glarus Enigma just not as strong. Medium mouthfeel with carbonation. Banana is the first flavor that comes to mind in this one followed by some bourbon notes like a watered down whiskey and coke. Lingers with a slight sweet bitterness. Taken as is the beer isnt terrible but Im not sold on this being anything great either. On the plus side, I think the booze is fairly well hidden. Curious how long this spent in bourbon casks. Oaked Arrogant Bastard slays this beer hands down.

Hazy amber color, average sized white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Strong bourbon aroma, coconut, oak, malt, caramel. Medium sweet taste with no bitterness. Very interesting.

halfonit (1346) - Fall River, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 5, 2011
Pours a clear amber color. Aroma is of Bourbon big time with some oak, a little vanilla, and malts. Taste is of Bourbon, oak, and vanilla. Leaves a big Bourbon finish. Different, but I wish it was a little thicker.

12 oz bottle I think I got from Acknud. Light color with solid head. Was expecting heavy and powerful, but instead got light and seriously drinkable. Flavorful, but light enough to be session beer. Didnt really taste the 8.8 abv.

Chipalsa (1310) - Florida, USA - JUL 16, 2011
Bottle ---> Shaker. Light body, medium head/lacing. Smelled spicy of hops, wood and bacon. The taste was great, but too much on the sweet side for a bourbon barrel aged. Hops in the presence, some roasty pineapple, smokiness and sweet bourbon goodness. Fun to drink, especially if you dont want to chug bourbon.

Thank you Moejuck for this nice surprise. Third rating today with his name attached to the rating. Light amber color with with little head, and no yeast content. Intense aroma of bourbon, vanilla, (potatoes) and malt. Not too much in the flavor but borbon, lasha, all in a very thin bodied beer. Interesting, but just because you throw a beer in a bourbon barrell it doesnt mean its going to be great.

desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JUL 12, 2013
Draft at Crispys. This was am interesting beer. Pours almost opaque light brown with a fine white head. Flavor and arms are dominated by charred oak and vanilla. Alcohol not to evident. Definitely something to drink slowly and in small quantities, but its unique and tasty.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2015 Poured from bottle. Oak / bourbon aroma is amazing. Clear amber, tan head, lacing. This really picks up the bourbon and oak from the barrel. Add in the vanilla and alcohol flavors. A touch of banana as well. These flavors complement each other well. This is like an exotic dessert! Even better as it warms. Excellent beer.
