4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
0,355l bottle from England. Clear, opaque, black colored beer with medium, creamy, drak brown head. Epic, coconut and cocoa odor. Silky and mature feeling because of the barrel flavours. Although itís intensive and a little bit smoky. The flavour reminds me of a good whiskey. Alcohol, caramel, malty sweet aroma, Strong sweet taste. Creamy texture, huge body, average carbonation. Dry, smoky finish. Unbelivable whiskey aftertaste. Strong, intensive, filling stout. Mature, balanced, but lively. At the beginning intensive, caramel, chocolate, malt flavour, later barrel flavour and smooth aroma. Very-very good!

bottle. thick and black with very small head. perhaps expectations were too high, but i found this really underwhelming. if you were to mix equal parts bourbon, soy sauce and chocolate syrup, iíd imagine youíd end up with something very similar. thereís a lot of interesting flavor here, but together it just feels a little too much like a unbalanced mess.

2013.10.22 - Goose Island Bourbon County Stout - on tap at Broad Axe. Second draft Iíve had. Hard to rate other than to say complex and tasty. It pours quite dark. Itís a 15% stout, what else would you expect? Not much carbonation or head when I get it. Complex taste. Different flavors reveal themselves with each drink, and as it warms. An unexpected sweetness. Suffice it to say, quite good. I also happened to find 2 x 12oz bottles of it on the way here tonight. So itís repeat purchase worthy.

Killer aroma. Killer taste. Warm, full bodied stout blended with a bold bourbon flavor. It is hard to say if the beer or the barrel is more overpowering, but you can still smell it after you set your glass down.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tried at Bottle Share at the Syb Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Small snifter. Pours a jet black with a thin tan head. Head gone in about 20 seconds. Let it warm up some before going to town. Aromas of wood (oak), roasted malts, vanilla, sweet milk, and caramel. The taste was blissful. Roasted malts, the oaked barrel, vanilla, earthy wood, and dark chocolate. I really wish I had a whole bottle! Full body, smooth and not oily. Finishes big with flavors still exploding.

2011 12 oz bottle shared with Jasonn. This is just astounding. The pour is black with a dark dark mocha head. Thin, no lace, quick fading. The aroma is gorgeous! Heavy in licorice, vanilla, chocolate and bourbon. The taste is just the same. It's a little more bourbon-ey, but the alcohol is well hidden, and only comes through on the very back end of the mouth feel. It's beautiful. I can't wait to get more of this beer!!

Pours a pitch black with a thin ring of brown bubbles. Aroma of bourbon, vanilla, chocolate, coffee and oak. Flavor of bourbon, coffee, roasted malt, vanilla, and dark chocolate. Quite bitter and a lot of alcohol in the finish.
