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.

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

Found this while taking a tour of the factory. Was very impressed with the quality of the brew. Enjoyed the barrel taste that is carried through the beer. In my opinion one of the best this brewery has to offer.

On Draught at the Beer Cellar Indianapolis. You can really smell the bourbon in the pour. Tastes amazing and the bourbon really comes through. golden, minimal head, lightly sour, medium sweetness, light body. This is a good beer, especially on draught.

One of the best brews I’ve tasted. Malty vanilla flavor which goes down very smoothly. 9% ABV, but you can’t tell. I thoroughly enjoyed this beer.

Well balanced bourbon flavored beer. Nice hint of caramel and vanilla accompanies the distinctive bourbon flavour. Exceptionally smooth for an 8.2% beer, not a session beer but prefect for a relaxing night.

Poured a clear amber with a one finger head that fades fast. The aroma was light but there were some really nice bourbon and caramel notes. the flavor was bourbon and caramel, sweet but not cloying, very interesting and enjoyable. The palate was so smooth, it was the best I have ever experienced in a beer, it was like velvet. Overall this was a really good beer, smooth, clean and enjoyable all the way.

On tap at The Beer Growler in Decatur, GA. Light caramel color with a beige head. Sweet, rounded body. Distinctive bourbon taste but not accompanied by the alcoholic strength of bourbon. Very good

My current favorite beer. Very well balanced versus most other bourbon barrel beers. Nice on the palate, with a bourbon finish. Should be drank from a snifter for full effect and not overchilled. Many friends who do not consider themselves beer drinkers love this beer. Great change from the usual "heavier" bourbon barrel brews (stouts, porters).
