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.

mcmisko (356) - New York, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Pours pitch black with no head, some caramel bubbles though. Smells like wet wood, roasted malts and a little bourbon. Taste is warm, sweet and complex. Notes of bourbon, caramel, dark roasted malts, creamy oats and a little menthol. Very complex, yet just as well balanced. Full bodied. Alcohol is not hot, but present. Very good stuff.

SvanteL (181) - 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.

knasputte78 (363) - SWEDEN - APR 15, 2016
Svart och trög. Intensiv smak som nästan blir för mycket. Portvin fast öl. Torkad frukt i massor som ger en söt och sirapslik smak. Alkoholen känns fast utan att bli stickig ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ARH (1093) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2016
UPDATED: APR 13, 2016 12oz bottle, poured into a small snifter. The aroma is intense with notes of sweet caramel, berries, and bourbon, along with subtle wood and dark chocolate, followed by secondary tones of leather. It pours a rich, dark chocolate color with creamy, silky brown head with moderate retention and good, sticky lace. The taste is a high / medium-high sweet followed up by a medium high bitter that blends in. The full bodied beer has a thick and viscous texture with a soft fizz for carbonation. Initial flavors are toffee, wood, and leather with a spicy, dark chocolate and alcohol heat. The smooth finish has an alcohol zip followed by a pungent and bitter, woody spice that smooths out late with a burnt brown sugar / caramel and chocolate note. Some roasted nuts, burnt bread, and licorice come through late with a dry character and lingers, with strength, for while.

markducommun (801) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 4, 2016
Deep dark, opaque brown with light mahogany highlights around the edge of the glass. Minimal deep tan head. Deep vanilla and molasses notes, quite a bit of alcohol in the nose. Also, some amount of bitter espresso. Very sweet, very bitter. Heavy syrupy body, with a ton of alcohol on the body. Extremely long finish. Outstanding.
