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 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.

12 oz bottle from Capones. Poured a thick oily pitch black with a smaller creamy dark chocolate brown head. The aroma has notes of bourbon, vanilla, raisin, fig, dak chocolate, rum cake and chocolate cake bater. Full syrupy body with a solid dose of heat but not that much for the actual ABV, average carbonation with a super long lingering aftertaste. Flavor of charcoal, tar, tobacco, bourbon, vanilla extract, super burnt toast, bakers dark chocolate, dark fruit skins. Solid beer that gets better as I sip it.

12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon, some oak and vanilla, a little chocolate and coffee, and some dough. Flavor the same with a lot of roasted malts and bourbon. Smooth, thicker texture. A really good imperial stout that is not as sweet as others that are this strong.

Bottle - batch #1 - thanks newcigarz! Pours opaque black with a small deep brown head that dissipates fairly quickly with a bit of lacing. Aroma is surprisingly light - notes of bourbon, chocolate, deep roasted malts, wood, dates. Flavor is medium sweet and light bitter with strong bourbon notes and a touch of licorice. Light astringence is apparent from the time spent in wood. Full body, creamy mouthfeel and strongly warming, not surprising given the ABV. This is a nice beer. Cant wait to try B2!

Bottle @ home. Thanks vaiz! Aroma flows to my nose as vaiz poens the bottle over a meter away. Chocolate, caramel and vanilla hit the nose. A closer look brings big burned molasses and caramel, liquorice, caramel, vanilla, (medicinal) alcohol, roast, etc etc. Flavour is huge burning roasty chocolate liquorice rocketfuel malt caramel bonanza. Later bourbon, wood, caramel, malt etc etc. Lingers for ever. Keeps evolving. Hefty though.

12 oz bottle with a date of Mar 27, 2012. Nothing like a BA stout at noon! Snifter displays thick oily, black with brown around the edges. Aroma is totally rich bourbon. Flavor is heavy woody bourbon, dark fruits, cherry notes. Strong and heavy whiskey notes. Also a light coffee bitterness. Body is full with a heavy texture that coats the inside of your mouth. The alcohol presence is known but not terrible for 17%. Overall I say if you really like bourbon, you will really enjoy this stout.

UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 Bottle. Pours deep, opaque black with thin, fizzy tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is bourbon, caramel and roasted malt, prunes, earthy hops, oak, milk chocolate, and light vanilla. Flavor is malt dominate with oak and some supporting hops (light bitterness) and dark fruit esters; bourbon undertones throughout with a dry finish. Full body, low carbonation, and high warmth.
