UPDATED: FEB 10, 2019 2010 bomber bottle. $10 at Binny's way back then. And I'm drinking this while 'Kolchak: The Night Stalker' is on MeTV. This beer on draft was why I had to quit my job as a sampler for Goose in 2013. At Solstice Fest in Oak Forest, we promised Bourbon County Stout, but only after we kicked the Night Stalker on tap. I did my part to empty the keg. Only too well. Anyway…
Finally enjoying this in a safe state of mind. It kicks up a nice fizzy head, deep brown, which stands for a bit before fizzing away. A chocolate and coffee malt nose, with no harsh bitterness, but a nice backing of alcohol. All of that carries over into the taste, but with an extra note of vanilla, like what I would expect if this had been barrel aged. Just a fine imperial stout that has held up wonderfully after nine years. Good thing, since I'm trying to finish off cellar stuff I should NOT have put away.
Surprisingly, no sludge or sediment at the bottom of the bottle. Hansen (8769) - Landsbyen ved floden Mokai, DENMARK - DEC 28, 2018
