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.

brokensail (9950) - Orange County, California, USA - JUL 28, 2012
Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a small tan head. Super bourbony aroma with some vanilla, oak, and dark chocolate. Very, very sweet with lots of brown sugar, molasses, and caramel. Tastes of chocolate, brown sugar, caramel, bourbon, and vanilla. The sweetness is very pronounced, and despite the alcohol content and barrel aging, not as boozy as I thought.
