Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale

Tried a few of these on a recent trip to Lexington, this was the last one in the back of the DBF.

Light orange pour with complete clarity. A very reluctant head that has no stickability at all.

Colossal bourbon character right through the aroma all the way to the end of the taste. Not subtle at all, and although it is quite nice at first it very quickly becomes rather tedious. If I wanted bourbon I’d have ordered bourbon! In fact it gets so strong and so obvious that I would almost characterize this as a novelty beer. The only other elements are a big warming alcohol presence and a dry finish.

I dunno, as a one off novelty I would say go for it, but for me the bourbon quickly becomes overwhelming and not something I am interested in.
