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.

This is an odd beer. Vanilla aromas are more pronounced than I would have expected. And there's a dark fruit note I wasn't really expecting to find here. Maybe raisin, maybe plum. Comes through in the flavor even more than the aroma. It really doesn't come across with a lot of barrel. Oak character is minimal.
