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.

Great balance of flavor and crispness. Much better on tap than in bottle. Im not a fan of the bourbon barrel stouts. To heavy and cloying. This is an ale and for me they got it right.

Clear dark golden with an amazing aroma like boozy vanilla cake batter; lots of sugary vanilla, cake, and a light touch of cinnamon. Flavor is wonderful with notes of light char, light brown sugary bourbon, some oak, lots of vanilla and cake mix, warm earthy boozy toffee, with a slightly cinnamon/vanilla finish. Really swell.

Wow great beer. Most likely not for everyone. First thought someone put a little bourbon in my beer. But the flavor is really good. I would say if you like Jack, Jim or a few of the other famous guys from the south you will really enjoy this beer. If you do not know these guys might not be the beer for you. If you are out try one, pass on a shot and just enjoy this fine beer by itself.

Very unique beer really one of a kind. Great nuances of bourbon on the nose and pallet. The deep malt flavor is complemented nicely by caramel and vanilla notes.

UPDATED: JUL 23, 2016 Really good. Dark amber with malt maize and caramel bourbon hints and tastes. Great strength and extremely moreish. Will definitely try again. Probably one of best bottled ales I?ve drunk. Gets even better second time. Very smooth.

DalzAle (2029) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2010
Bottle bonus thanks to phaleslu! Clear amber pour, little carbonation and an extremely strong whiskey aroma (seriously, smelled like a well made manhattan!) Flavor was also closer to a mixed drink rather than a beer, smooth vanilla, bourbon and some malt on the backbone. Not overpowering in the booze department, but still flavorful. Anyone who enjoys a good manhattan would probably enjoy this. Really glad I got to try this one!!!

While slightly pricey for a beer that has better beers in the same style, this is a very tasty beer when you really want a bourbon on the rocks. Slightly sweet, never disappointing, and makes a perfect sipping beer.

This is one of my all time favorite beers. It has a light golden brown color. Scent is slight lacking, dry smell. Very thin head. Taste is slightly tingly the flavor of the bourbon barrels is strong, but not overpowering. Finishes with a warming sensation in the belly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Erzengel (8176) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 8, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 12, 2013 Vielen Dank an Sean fr dieses Bier! Toller Geruch nach Burbon Whisky. Hellorangene Farbe im Glas. Der Antrunk ist sehr mild, keinerlei Alkohol sprbar. Toll weich. Milde Burbon-Tne mit einem kleinen Hauch von Lakritz. Weiches Malz, angenehm vanillig-slich. Der Nachgeschmack ist lang, burbon-weich, angenehm, vanillig, rund toll!
--> Sehr tolles Bier. Der Alkohol nirgendwo herauszuschmekcne, aromenvoll, faszinieren. Ich wrde sagen, eins der Besten amerikanischen Biere, die ich bis jetzt getrunken habe. Weder extrem s, noch extrem aufdringlich, extrem herb oder extrem alkoholisch! Sehr zu empfehlen! (21.2.2011) --> Noten: 12,15,13,14,12,15 - 14,10
