COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"I really wanted to do something special for our 1000th batch at the original brewpub. Goose Island could have thrown a party. But we did something better. We brewed a beer. A really big batch of stout-so big the malt was coming out of the top of the mash tun. After fermentation we brought in some bourbon barrels to age the stout. One hundred and fifty days later, Bourbon County Stout was born-A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with a thick foam the color of bourbon barrels. The nose is a mix of charred oak, vanilla,carmel and smoke. One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer. It overpowers anything in the room. People have even said that it’s a great cigar beer, but I haven’t yet tried a cigar that would stand up to it." Brewmaster Greg Hall;

Editor’s Note: Baudoinia Fulton & Wood Series offering (And the Low Storage entry from FoBAB 2012) is simply Bourbon County Stout aged in the same barrels. It has been alted as it offers no different recipe or barrel type simply the presence of a distillers fungus on the barrels that adds no distinct characteristic to the beer from the fungus itself except for possible oxygen exposure changes. While Brewers Intent indicates that they consider it a new beer, no true distinction aside from this oxidation amount and possible aging time differences separates the beers. It’s essentially a single barrel Bourbon County version something we have always treated as regular Bourbon County Stout in the past.

BlackHaddock (11007) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 2, 2020
UPDATED: AUG 2, 2020 Monthly Beer Share (five of us); Chez Sophie, Shrewsbury. 27th July 2020. I brought the bottle back with me from the US to share with friends. It was the 2019 version (14.7% ABV) with a BBD of 29th Jun 2024. Black body, tanned topping. Bourbon to the fore, harsh sugary feel too. Loads going on really, chocolate, coffee and other stuff trying the get passed the Bourbon and sweetness. Liked it.

Bush_Docta (1069) - - MAY 20, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2020 Rocznik 2017. Nalewa się czarne, z ciemnobeżową pianą, która dość szybko opada do obrączki, a potem całkiem znika. W aromacie czekolada, kakao, piekna wanilia, która wzmaga się z czasem. Jest też nuta ciemnych owoców i alkoholu. W smaku praliny, czekolada deserowa, wanilia, burbon. Bardzo gładkie, pełne, ale nie gęste, alkohol wyczuwalny, rozgrzewający ale nie ordynarny, nie dałbym mu prawie 15%. Super ułozone i zbalansowane piwo, z fajną beczką i pazurem jednocześnie.

Sask89 (553) - Regina, Saskatchewan, CANADA - MAR 13, 2020
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2020 2018 on tap. Pours pitch black with a small mocha head. Bourbon barrel aging is noticeable in aroma with chocolate, coffee, toasted grains coming through. Taste is sweeter than expected with an underlying dryness. Full body, smooth on the palate, and good carbonation. A very good imperial stout.

UPDATED: FEB 25, 2020 Got a growler at the local ShopRite liquors. One of the best, ever. If I could find kegs, I’d keep this on tap at home.
