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 Jacob’s wash, we’ve 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! It’s in our blood!
Brewed with Rocky Mountain Water, Malter Barley, Flaked Oats, Hops and Yeast.

Linnet (1391) - Karlstad, SWEDEN - AUG 13, 2015
roasty, coffee, chocolate, licorice, alcohol, soy sauce, woody, rich and rewarding, the bourbon is there, but I would have wished for it to shine through even more. Pitch black, medium Brown head, lacing. Heavy salty, heavy sweet, mid-bitter, slightly peppery, insanely rich and ABV very well integrated. Extremely fullbodied, oily, almost chewy feel, soft carbonation, very, very long, salty, roasty and warming finish. If I Could have felt more of the bourbon this would have gotten an even higher mark. Still balancing a beer with this ABV without it being boozy is a feat worthy of a world class brewery, which Avery is!

Aroma of brown sugar, toffee, licorice, vanilla. Very sweet with a thick mouthfeel, taste of light biscuit with a lingering licorice and vanilla background, as it warmsup the bourbon is more forward, giving it a slight boozy edge and a more rounded feel, after taste of brown sugar and vanilla.

Pours jet black with a dense brown head. Nose: caramel roasted malts, chocolate brownie mix, latte or intensly sugared espresso. Taste: sweet roasted malts, vanilled oak and chocolate cake, slight prune and fruity molasses in the emidiate finnish. The aftertaste is full and rich with creamy chocolate, espresso and the mouthfeel on this masterfull brew is lightly carbonated. I found it very ’Avery’ and that aint bad. Tak Peter aka motherbrother!
