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.

caesar (5792) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle @ Zeebra 2015, small sample. Dark color, short head. Aroma of chocolate, roasted malts, some vanilla. Quite thick and a bit boozy. Bit too heavy on malty sweetness and alcohol.

First beer I can taste from this brewery, and itís already one that makes me want to taste more from them. Good full taste with a lot going on. Ofcourse pretty boozy...

This was really good. I was expecting something way more boozy at 17%. Get it if you can.

From bottle to tulip. Thanks to Anne for the bottle from the brewpub. Overt vanilla, prominent molasses and rye with strong alcohol presence on the nose. Moderate alcohol heat. Pours deep, deep brown with brown highlights. Large brown head with minimal lacing. Taste is molasses, chocolate and fig. Faint tar, bourbon and mole sauce. Viscous pour covers the mouth like a velvety tapestry. Finishes surprisingly quickly. As it warmed, the alcohol was more pronounced.

Zakoon (237) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2015
355ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is bourbon, roasted malt, molasses, coffee, wood, vanilla and chocolate. Flavour is sweet and a little boozy. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is smooth bourbon and quite sweet.

Pour is almost as black as they get, with a thin, dark brown head. Aroma do bourbon and chocolate. Flavor is very balanced bourbon with sweetness and toasty backbone. Lots of creamy chocolate and not as sweet as most beers this high in Abv. Alcohol is well hidden. Very good beer.
