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.

raradel (343) - Atlanti Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 27, 2013
Nice vanilla nose and flavor but thin look and body for the ABV. Has a lot of good things just lacks depth.

VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Clear amber body with a small white head. Aroma of vanilla, bourbon and malt. Odd flavor - malty, slightly grainy, faint alcohol, light bourbon. Palate is medium bodied with average carbonation. Overall, this beer is just a little different - I enjoyed it but I wouldnt go out of my way to find it again.

Draft. Pours very clear copper/light brown with a thin white head. Tastes sweet and buttery, smooth, like rum, bourbon, and butterscotch. Low/medium body and low carbonation. Smells sweet, creamy, sugary, and like alcohol.

Tastes a whole lot like someone put a shot of bourbon in the beer. I dont love the mix - I dont mind having a bourbon and then having a better, but having them simultaneously doesnt do it for me.

Idiosynkrasie (6864) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 22, 2014
355ml bottle. Clear, deep orangey amber colour with small, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Malty aroma, notes of Bourbon, vanilla, a touch of leather. Taste is initially carbonation-induced dry, later the Bourbon comes through with hints of vanilla and leather. Seems to be light and watery in the beginning while the carbonation takes away most of the taste, better in the second part but pretty far from terrific.

rlpeeler (93) - Bowling Green, Kentucky, USA - MAR 23, 2014
On tap it is copper with very small head. Taste is bourbon and malt with some sweetness and alcohol. It is smooth but somewhat thin. Certainly drinkable but not quite on the mark.
