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.

Bottle. A couple years old. Huge marshmallow nose, chocolate, vanilla, port. Airy, ethereal body, full yet light and airy. Very sweet and boozy chocolate marshmallow smores. Sticky finish. A bit too sweet and overwhelming, but pretty great.

Steasy66 (1119) - Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2015
Black with small tan head. Aroma is full of very sweet chocolate. Flavor is similar, over sweet, chocolate, almost no bourbon or roast. This is alright, but too sweet and lacking complexity.

12 oz bottle. Tasted on 4/16/15. Bottle courtesy of Espo. Aroma was chocolate, cocoa & slight bourbon. Taste was smooth & well balanced for 17%. Very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bulk_Carrier (4720) - Essex Junction, Vermont, USA - APR 20, 2015
Batch no 4. Bottled Feb 13, 2015. This was poured into a mini snifter. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thin concave lacing after a one finger off white head dissipated within about a minute. The smell had a sweet bourbon with nice roasty notes and a smooth sticky chocolate with an underlying gently smokey oakiness. The taste was sweet and roasty smooth leading into a big super smooth roasty aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with sticky notes strolling over my tongue. Carbonation was felt nicely. Overall, I say this was a wonderful bourbon barrel stout that I would definitely have it again.

furthur (1083) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - APR 20, 2015
Bottle, opaque black beer, brown sugar colored head fades to a skiff leaving some lace. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, sugar cookies, oak, raisins, toasted barley. Taste is bourbon, vanilla, peanuts, anise, cookies, alcohol, molasses, shoyu. Palate thick, nearly syrup, carbonation subdued. Alcohol is strong, but doesnít taste like 17%. Sweetness is, however, a bit much. As desert itís ok, but I donít even want to finish the 12oz. bottle in one night.

katrinaez (1709) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2015
Heavy hitting flavor at once. BourBon filters slowly down your throat and relaxes there. Deep black color. Tap

Emeister84 (2361) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2015
Aromas of vanilla, chocolate, caramel, tobacco, bourbon. Black with a mostly lasting tan head. Some sweetness, port-like, raisiny, dark chocolate, whiskey. Full bodied, pretty damn smooth especially considering the alcohol level.
