COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
What happens when you take our legendary Chicken Killer Barley Wine and let it take a long nap in a bourbon barrel? It turns into the palate-blowing liquid you hold in your hand. Our Kickin Chicken Bourbon-Barrel Aged Barley Wine uses twice the ingredients of our other beers, but we extract only half the usual amount of liquid from them. Then its barrel aged for 9 months. The result is a potent, smooth and flavorful concoction with bourbon-like undertones of vanilla and caramel. Know what its like to be kicked in the mouth by a chicken? Youre about to find out.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Bottle. Pours an opaque orange-brown with minimal head and no lacing. Aroma is bourbon, alcohol, oak. Flavor is fruity up front fading quickly into bourbon, oak, and alcohol tones. Hints of vanilla oakiness. Bourbon is undoubtedly the dominant character of this beer. Reminds me of bourbon barrel Olde Skiddy. Soft carbonation, medium body, and smooth texture. A very boozy bourbon barrel aged barleywine. Exactly what I was hoping for.

nuplastikk (6087) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 14, 2013
22oz bomber. 35th birthday present from Elise. Thick, unfiltered viscous brown amber. Oily thin head. Rich and boozy, thick, sweet bourbon caramel tones. Tastes like they added bourbon to a beer barrel. Intense. Firmly planted in the Barley Wine style, which I fully appreciate, but also fully showing off rich barrel tones.

Cloudy red, not much head. Smells like bourbon and vanilla. Taste is bourbon, vanilla, caramel and a molasses. Pretty good, but maybe a bit heavy on the bourbon. Thanks to lithy for bringing this one
