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.

If you like bourbon you will love this beer, it is crisp in flavor, not hoppie and the kick is smooth.

All the familiar characteristics of a good bourbon hit me immediately. That oakey and vanilla scent, the copper color. It drinks like the smoothest bourbon you’ve ever had with that unctuous buttery feel going down. And a hint of residual warmth. Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale is delicious, smooth, and has an aggressive, tricky 8% ABV.

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

Ale aged in bourbon whiskey barrels presents a sweet start with a smooth mellow finish. The sultle blend of bourbon and malty ale flavors is complex yet complementary.

Pours a clear amber, very similar to a neat bourbon. No head and looks extremely smooth. Aroma of bourbon and bourbon only, at least to me! Taste is a very very smooth oak ale, very little bourbon comes through, which makes this a refreshing and desirable brew! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Sweet vanilla taste with a bourbon finish. I can tell it’s got a bit of a punch to it.

Amber pour, strong floral with oak and whiskey finish aroma. Sweet start with smokey bourbon finish. Plenty of complexity to enjoy sipping. Even has a subtle lingering Bourbon burn
