Ok so the other night I pulled out a nearly year old KBS to drink. It was in the fridge because I don't have a proper place to cellar beer, but I figured if anything it would just talk longer to age. When I drank it to my surprise it had basically lost all of the bourbon kick it once had. It was still fantastic don't get me wrong. I got TONs of coffee, and the vanilla and chocolate came out too, but the extra bourbon kick was just not here. I was a little disappointed. Next day, in the name of science of course lol, I had a Bourbon County from this last release, what are we at 3 month now maybe. Basically the same thing. The bourbon had faded a bit, obviously not as much as with the KBS, but it had a bit. It was still there enough though to be noticeable. So I ask is this normal with barrel aged beers? The bourbon fades over time? if that's true then I think I like them fresh because I really like that bourbon kick they have at the beginning.
