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.

17.4% version from March 27th 2012. Opaque black - brown beer, good dark tan head. Palate is airy and has modest fine carbonation. Rich dark malts, quite fruity. Spicy coffee. Brandy alcohol dominates any bourbon. Finishes with more spicy tangy coffee and dark fruits. Spicy alcohol linger. Full on, five years old but could have left it another five I reckon!

Bottle 35,5 cl. Courtesy of Doodler. Pours a pitch black with a smallish brown head. Sweet roasty aroma, sweet Bourbon as well. Very rich body, sweet roast, dark dried fruit and loads of Bourbon heat. No real bitterness. The alcohol is not exactly hidden but it’s not really boozy or cloying. 150812
