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 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.

Been wanting to try this bad boy ever since I heard of it. Pour pitch black, with a small creamy mocha-brown head... Looks freaking terrifying!! Aroma is packed of coffee, chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, coconut, bourbon, wood, bourbon/rum - soaked dark fruits, dates, raisins, licorice. This shit really is delicious. Holy cow!! The taste is pretty sweet, with a slightly bitter and boozy aftertaste, which suits this beer very well. Medium and rather oily bodied, with a lively carbonation. Slight heat in the throat when swallowed. This shit sure is tasty, and I’d always be iso more!! Thanks to Master Scott for sending me this SOB!!

Leini (1737) - SWEDEN - JUN 23, 2016
355ml bottle. Pitch black body with a pretty much non-existing head. Pours like engine oil. Roasted aromas, coffee, dark chocolate, liquorice, vanilla, salty, vineous. Flavor is heavy with roasted notes, vanilla, liquorice, dark chocolate. The alcohol is surprisingly well hidden but punches through at the finishing long, giving a long aftertaste.

Black color . Nice , beige head. Bourbon, roasted malt , vanilla and hint of coffee in aroma . Perfectly balanced taste which follows the aroma. Sweet, but not too sweet . Boozy but not too boozy . Gently bite of roasted bitterness at the end.

drpimento (2966) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2016
Don’t pick up much of the bourbon in the aroma, but it really comes through in a balanced aesthetic way in the flavor. Everything works here. Not just a strong stout, but an imperial, and you know it. Yet, it’s sooo smooth and almost easy drinking. Hope I can find more locally.

Aroma is sweet and roasty-smokey. Color is black with a tan head. Flavor is boozy and roasty, but mostly boozy with noticeable whiskey character. Notes: On tap at the new brewery during GABF week ’15

Bottle. The pour is black with a lighter head. The aroma has is a lot of booze, and more on the whiskey side than bourbon. The taste is big and boozy, a good beer to share. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
