"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.

OnTheTrail (1004) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 2, 2021
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2021 Pours almost black. Good sized medium brown head. Aroma is espresso, chocolate, raisins, figs, pecans. Taste is soft slightly bitter chocolate, lots of dried dark fruit, burnt coffee. Maybe some burnt candy. Nice creamy smooth heavy mouthfeel. Lives up to the hype reasonably well, I guess? Definitely well made beer.

shotgun1431 (139) - franklin furnace, Ohio, USA - NOV 26, 2021
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2021 Pours black with a small tan head. Very complex so I’m going to add the description from the bottle. “Notes of vanilla, toffee, chocolate, burnt sugar and dried fruit.” 14% and is still smooth and tastes wonderful.

BeerdedDave (3818) - Beckley, USA - NOV 2, 2021
UPDATED: NOV 2, 2021 Black color; fantastic bourbon aroma; Amazing bourbon notes in the flavor along with rich caramel, bitter choclate, roasted malt, and vanilla with nice oak notes that com ethrough in a dry finsh that leaves a lingering warmth at the back of the mouth. Way smoother than a beer at this gravity has any right to be

UPDATED: NOV 1, 2021 Great flavors, yet not worth $27 per bottle. I would choose North Coast old Rasputin at $3.

mieszal92 (2373) - Gliwice, POLAND - OCT 13, 2021
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2021 Caramel, coffee, overcarbonated, liquor. Missing something to be a renowned banger. 4.1

Cybuch (2526) - Muszyna, POLAND - OCT 8, 2021
UPDATED: OCT 8, 2021 W aromacie czekolada, prażony karmel, sos sojowy. W smaku półgęste, mleczna czekolada, alkholowe. Aromat genialny, brakuje trochę wyleżakowania.

17wojownik (1425) - Krakow, POLAND - AUG 30, 2021
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2021 Na krakowskim Beerweek Festival 06, w 2021 roku, 100 ml przelane z butelki dwoma kielonkami. Hm no potężny stout, pity już na dość zrobieniu. Bardzo mocny, słodki ale nie lepki, w sumie to już wykracza poza kategorie piwne.. Rodzyny i karmel, gęściutkie (zatem bezpianowe i bezwysyceniowe), ładna mieszanka kolorów i feeria barw. No ok, spróbowane, choć powinieniem był to skosztować w lepszych/wcześniejszych okolicznościach.

wojanex (2985) - warszawa, POLAND - JUL 2, 2021
UPDATED: JUL 2, 2021 Szanuję legendę, w swojej kategorii trunek wzorowy, rozgrzewający, przyjemnie bourbonowy, ale ja już nie mogie takich mocnych. Tylko na setki daję radę.

batmansthlm (1) - - JUN 9, 2021 does not count
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2021 Mjuk, mörk sirap hint av kaffe. Lagrad i källare sen 2012. Ingen hint av den höga avb n förutom i huvudet 😉

TomHendriksen (4745) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 14, 2021
UPDATED: MAY 14, 2021 Fles gedeeld door Keukeman geprobeerd met Benzai Het is een diep donkerbruin tot zwart bier met een bruinig schuim. Het heeft een bourbon achtige geur. De smaak is vol, bourbon, hout en gebrande mout.
