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.

Aroma is sweet, marshmallow, caramel, sweet chocolate and vanilla. Appearance is black as night, not much head, a brown. Taste is super sweet, marshmallows and vanilla, slight chocolate, no real bitterness. The mouthfeel is very thick as expected. Overall, it is quite boozy, but the flavor hides well and only face-heat comes when you swallow, like a barley wine. Very good.

Wow What a great brew. A hint of cherry in the bourbon barrel flavor. A truly top notch stout. Aged one year at home to perfection.

Brouwerij (959) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2013
Bottle, batch 2. Pours a very dark brown with dark brown head, amongst the darkest head Iíve seen. Settles quickly with minimal lacing. Aroma is sweet, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, and booze. Flavor is strong bourbon, vanilla, sweet oat and alcohol finish. The oats give it a fuller body and smoother texture. Soft carbonation, full body, and smooth texture, the palate really makes this beer. Uncle Jacobís is the ultimate bourbon barrel beer, making Angelís share and Older Viscosity seem light and watery. Few beers can compete with the texture and body of this beer. Have had several of these, and have yet to be disappointed. A superb brew.

2012 Black with minimal carbonated tan head. Smell HUGE bourbon vanilla, cream and light fruit, no booze. Taste vanilla up front, lots of heat and caramel in the middle, boozy and fudge in the back. Lots of booze on the tail, but ultra rich. Great beer.

tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2013
Pours pitch black and oily with a small dark brown head. Huge nose, lots of caramel and vanilla, bourbon, light oak, velvety chocolate, roasted malt, slightly nutty, boozy, molasses, and coconut. This is a HUGE beer, lots of coffee and dark fruit up front on the taste, vanilla and molasses, oak and bourbon, very boozy (could definitely stand to sit for a year or many more), dark bitter chocolate, and a hint of cherry. Huge bodied beer, so complex, so rich, yet still goes down smooth. Expected a boozy mess, and while there was a fair amount of alcohol there, it wasnít a detracting character.

12oz Bottle from 2013. Pours jet black. Huge hints of vanilla and booze. Very, very sweet. Nice balance between the hottness of the nearly 17%, the flavor from the barrel and the underlying beer. Really nice and something to sip and savor.

Vaiz (4172) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2013
Bottle from Beverager4less, San Diego. Black pour, thin tan head. Aroma is huge bourbon, chocolate, coffee, burnt malts, warming alcohol, boozy but well balanced. Flavor is warming, roasty, sweet chocolate, some bitter coffee and a hint of licorice. Mostly sweet warming roasted goodness. Heavy and smooth, but still in your face. Great brew, although it lacks some balance.

If youíre into nearly perfect beers, this is the ticket. An unbelievable syrupy vanilla chocolate bourbon heat roasted malt sticky sugary wonderland. Cheers.
