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.

Pours motor oil black with a small dark tan / burnt orange head. The aroma has caramel, roast, bourbon, vanilla, licorice, booze, coconut, oak and light char. It has a full rich body with mild flowing carbonation. The flavor starts with dark caramel, cocoa, vanilla, bourbon, heavy roast, earthiness and alcohol. The finish show some char, sweetness, tart apple and anise. Really nice imperial stout.

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.

12 ounce thanks to ssteigerwald. Big chocolate rich stout. So creamy. So boozy but in a good way; in no way over the top. The bourbon is in your nose and taste. So tasty. This is extremely good.

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 @ 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.

IrishBoy (3904) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 2, 2012
12 oz bottle from Arminjewell. Nose is lightly charred smoky oak, chocolate, vanilla, and molasses in the background. Black with a medium, quick disappearing cinnamon tan head. Flavor is vanilla, sweet raisins, white pepperiness, light bitterness, and a bit of bourbon. Finish is a bit of bitter and bourbony alcohol warmth. Excellent BBA Stout! Hard to believe itís actually 17.42%, the alcohol warmth tastes like a 10%er.
