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.

You will either love this beer or hate it with every fiber in your body. It's like cilantro in that aspect. It pours with no head. Normally I'd be wary. Then you smell it. What is this? Then you sip it and it just makes sense. Oak, vanilla...then you end up sculling it. I'm in California now and can't get it and I feel like a crackhead. I love IPAs and almost drink them exclusivley but this was my go to when I needed a break. Now she has been taken from me. Most bourbon barrel beers are stouts that overpower the oak and vanilla with coffee and chocolate. You owe yourself to try this ale. If you hate it, send it to me and I'll take it down for you.
