COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jacob Spears, our 6th Great Grand Uncle, is credited as the first distiller to label his whiskey "Bourbon." He built his distillery in Bourbon County, Kentucky in 1790 - 203 years before began brewing. While obviously a bit too late to produce Uncle Jacobís wash, weíve instead created something far more complex. In his honor, we present this robust, silky smooth, full-bodied and altogether extremely American rendition of an Imperial Stout aged for 6 months in the very finest bourbon barrels. This explains a lot about our penchant for big brews! Itís in our blood!
Brewed with Rocky Mountain Water, Malter Barley, Flaked Oats, Hops and Yeast.

Pours thick black oil with almost no head. The aroma brings chocolate vanilla brownies, the vanilla oak is a little more prevalent. The flavor is so smooth for the ridiculous ABV, the

Bottle... Pours pitch black with a small, creamy, beige head. The aroma is a bold, rich swirl of fudge, pouch tobacco and blackstrap molasses accompanied by an unobtrusive bourbon component. Full-bodied and silky with tingly carbonation. The flavor presents boozy-hot bourbon, fudge and vanilla. Finishes sweet, bourbony and chocolaty. Considering this beer is 35 proof, Iíd say itís quite palatable. Bottle courtesy of newcigarz!

Tinco (522) - LinkŲping, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2012
From tap. Black, no light coming thourgh, small mocha head. Aroma is bourbon, booze, chocolate, coffeee, toasted coconut, sweet soysauce, very ashy, burnt. Taste is boozy, very creamy, full mouthfeel, chocolate, sweet, raisins, plums, dark caramel, vanilla, almost dark flowers. A very hard beer to describe unless youve had it. A very awesome full imperial stout! Right up there!

Jesterdeal (1655) - Marlton, New Jersey, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Aroma of sticky toffee, chocolate, cherry and caramel. Pours black and thick (duh). Taste is enormous with sweet toffee, chocolate and cherry. Alcohol burn is balanced nicely.

minorthreat (21) - Parker, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2012
Pours used motor oil black with no head and little lacing. Smell is booze forward, not hot booze but chocolate, vanilla and oak. Taste is shockingly well integrated, little to no heat despite 17.42%abv. Loads of oaky vanilla and fudge with caramel and dark fruit notes. Very viscous and light carb level are perfect. This is an exceptional beer. A must try.

lucky to find this at a local bar, glad I had it now 7 months after bottling, fresh Iím sure this bad boy was very hot... dark brown pout, a bit thin dark tan head fades fast... the aroma is very strong and hot, tons of alcohol, a bit fusel, as it warms it calms down showing off bourbon and vanilla... the taste is quite excellent and much more balanced than the aroma, bourbon, vanilla, oak, alcohol, a bit of marshmellow sugaryness... the alcohol is present but hidden excellently for the abv... pretty stellar beer that will be coming into its prime in the near future

dmac (3754) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 13, 2012
12 oz bottle from Capones. Poured a thick oily pitch black with a smaller creamy dark chocolate brown head. The aroma has notes of bourbon, vanilla, raisin, fig, dak chocolate, rum cake and chocolate cake bater. Full syrupy body with a solid dose of heat but not that much for the actual ABV, average carbonation with a super long lingering aftertaste. Flavor of charcoal, tar, tobacco, bourbon, vanilla extract, super burnt toast, bakers dark chocolate, dark fruit skins. Solid beer that gets better as I sip it.

Really good. Strong malt and sweet aroma. Pitch black with no head but really nice lacing. Oily palate with low carbonation. Strong roasted malt flavor with caramel and some chocolate hints. High alcohol that is somewhat hidden but not completely disguised at this level. Great for the end of a cold day.
