Notes/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 6 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.

3.65/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served in a snifter glass.

Appearance: Transparent amber, light bubbles on the body and a white head that is maybe 1/4" off the body.

Smell: Light scotch smell and just sniffing it just a bit more you can feel the sweetness of this brew.

Taste: This right off the bat tastes like something familiar, already like feels your scotch ale but little richer.

Mouth: Medium not exactly sticking but still well made. I would pair this after the whole dinner and would probably compliment a dessert.

Overall: I have heard the hype and was expecting a little more but it is definitely not a disappointing brew. I would buy it again but wouldn't go nuts looking for it like it was the best thing made since hops. Salud!
