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 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.

Draft at the Coffee District in Delray Beach, FL. Snifter. Orange hazy pour with thin white head. Boozy aroma with oak, wood, sweet malts and banana. Taste was boozy but well balanced, oaked wood, banana, clove and wine.Pretty well balanced, malty, boozy, very medium-full bodied and soft, delicate finish.

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.

Served from a 12 oz bottle thanks to Craig. The appearance is a fairly clear golden hue. The aromas are creamy, some vanilla, some off aromas too. The flavors are very buttery and creamy, a touch of barrel and bourbon in the after taste. The mouth is medium bodied. This was a curious offering with such a lighter bodied beer in bourbon barrels that turned out pretty decent.

FunkyBrewster (1518) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 30, 2010
On tap. Pours a golden amber with a very small white froth. Aroma is bourbony and a touch woody with some sweet caramel notes and some graininess. Flavor starts exactly like watered down bourbon, very woody and straight bourbony. Picks up some vanilla notes but not much of it. Some sweet graininess in the disappointing finish. Medium body and a soft carbonation. This style didn’t hold up well to the aggressive bourbon note they had in it, making it very much like watery bourbon.

Bendrixian (1514) - Canadiana, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 24, 2014
On tap. darker copper colour but surprinsingly clear. Has a real woodsy/oaky aroma with some cereal grains and some higher esters. Big beer with a sweet profile and a syropy texture. It is a pretty good brew if a touch too sweet.

festival of barrel aged beers 2004. bourbon aroma, brown bourbon-like color, tastes like bourbon. is this beer? i guess it is,since it’s here. its slightly sweetish aftertaste reminded me more of southern comfort than jim beam or jack daniels.

ljthiessen (1507) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Clear amber pour with a small white head. Aroma is brown sugar, vanilla, caramel, oak and butter. Flavour is much the same; brown sugar, caramel, oak, butter, vanilla. A little light bodied, unfermented sugars, but not all bad. Like Innis & Gunn but a little better all around.

3.2
Quick3Beers (1505) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 12, 2017
Pours a clear golden brown from a bottle, thin white head with medium bubbles, minimal lacing. Bourbony, vanilla caramel aroma, similar flavor but dryer and less strong. A little biscuity. Good beer.

2.2
olr1984 (1500) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 16, 2013
12oz bottle pours a light golden orange with a thin white head. Sweet malt aroma and taste. Not much bourbon or barrel taste just malt.
