    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 six weeks in freshly decanted bourbon barrels for some of kentuckys 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.

    My thoughts:
    It pours with no head pretty much.
    The nose: butter and wheat very light, and a little yeast. It has a nice golden color.
    The taste: wow! Just wow. It's butter like a perfect biscuit and soo smooth with minimal carbonation. You get a mild spice and smokiness from the bourbon barrel. It also gives it a slight oak flavor. To me there's also a tiny hint of caramel and vanilla all swirled into a semi traditional ale, yeast flavor. I really just want it to never stop.
