See I think KBBA is one of the best beers made. That's what's nice about people having different tastes. I'm oaking a KBBA as we speak, and plan on bottling it with 675ml of Makers Mark (Gods gift to Bourbon lovers).

Since when is a porter or stout not an ale?

We tapped the keg and are drinking it now. This beer is very light and very good. We don't really taste the oak or vanilla but not really sure because there is something very subtle and
it is very good. I definitely had enough bourbon in it. Just right, not too overpowering like the first week. I think I will try two beans instead of one next time and 4oz of the oak cubes with the 3oz of Maker's Mark to see what happens. I am very happy with these results.

Strange question.





The oaked bourbon stout has been done. EXPERIMENT!!

However, ...........being from Kentucky,..........the bourbon ale sucks, as do most every bourbon ales.

I had to add a pot of STRONG coffe to my 1 and only bourbon oak beer before I could drink it.

It sounds good on paper, but bourbon and beer do not work for me.
