Notes / Commercial Description:
This unique and limited offering takes one of our most outstanding beers, the legendary Chicken Killer Barley Wine, and adds even more flavor and complexity. First, we brew the Chicken Killer Barley Wine using twice the ingredients of our other beers, but only yielding half the usual amount of liquid. This concentrated elixir then sits in Wild Turkey 101 bourbon barrels for nine months, giving the beer and oak a chance to mingle their flavors. In addition to a distinct bourbon undertone, this aging process imbues the beer with notes of vanilla, wood, and caramel. The complex flavors of this beer further evolve through the natural carbonation process that takes place in each bottle. Despite kickin’ the flavors of our barley wine up a few notches, the Kickin’ Chicken Bourbon Barrel Aged Barley Wine retains the smoothness and balance that is the signature of the entire Santa Fe Brewing Co. lineup. Whether you pop one open today or stash a few in the cellar to age for a year or two, get this limited release while you can!
