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.

A. It has a clear, copper color with a small white head and limited lacing. There are bubbles surrounding the glass that pop up to the top from time to time.

S. There is certainly a bourbon scent there. Heavy alcohol.

T/M. It has a refreshing kick to it. A slight bourbon taste, heavy malt and grape taste. Full bodied with a long finish. A very mild bitter kick.

O. It's got a nice, smooth taste, but the flavor isn't as bold as I might have been hoping for.

A: Pale brown with minimal head. Decent enough.

S: Hints of vanilla

T: Soft taste with a pretty heavy vanilla aftertaste. You can taste the bourbon aging. The taste was not nearly as strong though as I anticipated. I really like this one.

M: Low carbonation with a nice soft feel on the palate.

O: I really like this beer. It exceeded my expectations.
