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.

Aroma: cream, malt, bourbon, chocolate Aromais strong and long lasting Taste: bourbon, malt, sweet milk chocolate. This stout is more tender and mild comparing to Tweak. Anyway, great stout

Barrel-aged Imperial Stouts are big beers. Uncle Jacob’s Stout skips big and goes straight for monolithic. 17% alcohol and a pour that’s as deep and slow as ink. Huge roasted malt aromas with plenty of bourbon influence: vanilla, oak, cherry, butterscotch, toasted brown sugar, and booze. Flavor brings it forward with some coffee and cocoa coming from the grains. A full-bodied but smooth mouthfeel. It’d be fun to experiment with cellaring this brew and finding its sweet spot. At about any age though this is still going to be a massive Stout - not for the faint of spirit.

HuskerTan (1715) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle. A- Cherry, coconut, bourbon, boozy, oak. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Bourbon, coconut, vanilla, boozy, dark fruits, burnt caramel, butterscotch. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, bold finish. O- Sat on this one for just over a year and probably could have sat on it another year to tame it even more. Very booze/bourbon forward. Crazy expensive too. Maybe a little too bold. If it would mellow out it’d be great. Or even lose the barrel aging. And those are words I never use.

SvanteL (308) - SWEDEN - APR 23, 2016
Riktigt svart med ett litet rejält brunt skum, bruna gardiner fäster på insidan av glaset. Enormt mycket bourbon i doften, vanilj och ekfat, plus rejält rostade toner av choklad och kaffe, även aningen rök. Smaken är vinös med massor av vanilj och ekfat och mörk choklad. Munkänslan är tjock och fyllig, lite oljig. En gigantiskt smakrik imperial stout.
