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 Jacob’s wash, we’ve 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! It’s in our blood!
Brewed with Rocky Mountain Water, Malter Barley, Flaked Oats, Hops and Yeast.

Dark in color, very little foamy off-white head. Aroma of barrel, alcohol, malt, vanilla. Tastes like a stout should; alcohol, bourbon, malt. Mouthfeel great.

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2016 355 ml, bottled Feb 13 2015.
Black body, with a small, creamy, coffee-colored head.
Aroma of bourbon, coffee, cocoa, liquorice, dark chocolate, caramel, subtle dark fruits, alcohol.
Taste follows this, except that it is much more alcoholic.
Medium, quite creamy mouthfeel, with an average carbonation.
Finishes boozy, roasty-bitter, a bit dry, with coffee, liquorice, cocoa.

Very nice, although not outstanding in my opinion. Tastes too boozy for my liking, but still really nice, complex stuff. Overall an enjoyable sipper, but not among my favourite Imperial Stouts.
