COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Pailhead (6490) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - NOV 17, 2012
Bottle: The aroma consists of chocolate, wood, and a strange vegetal notes. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a small beige head. The flavor starts sugary sweet chocolate and molasses. The finish has light espresso, black licorice, and vanilla. Itís full bodied with mild carbonation. Overall, a little too sugary sweet for me to drink a lot of.

Braudog (6448) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours like old motor oil, slimy and pitch black, with barely a froth to speak of. The aroma is simply daunting -- boiling over with thick alcohol and oak. This drinks with a BIG, rich, chocolate-laden swirl, burning with just the right amount of whiskey oak. Wow, and double wow. Brilliant! (#4957, 3/12/2013)

AirForceHops (6437) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - APR 28, 2013
12 oz bottle with a date of Mar 27, 2012. Nothing like a BA stout at noon! Snifter displays thick oily, black with brown around the edges. Aroma is totally rich bourbon. Flavor is heavy woody bourbon, dark fruits, cherry notes. Strong and heavy whiskey notes. Also a light coffee bitterness. Body is full with a heavy texture that coats the inside of your mouth. The alcohol presence is known but not terrible for 17%. Overall I say if you really like bourbon, you will really enjoy this stout.

Beerman6686 (6431) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2012
this poured a darker brownc olor with a small tan head. Aroma was lots and lots of dark chocolate, booze, barrel, soy, and roast. Flavor was hot, but well intertwined, lots of dark chocolate, semi sweet and soy, not much roast in the flavor. Barrel notes are light, but its mainly the booze burn that comes through. Nice stuff.

Iphonephan (6405) - McLean/Jackson Hole, Virginia, USA - OCT 8, 2013
From a bottle at Fresh Craft in Denver, shared with Kermis and jmgreeneuk.. Batch no. 2. Pours black with a slight tan head. Aromas of plums and dark cherries. Flavors of dark stone fruits with hints of bittersweet chocolate, bourbon and vanilla. Intensely boozy with a lingering alcohol finish.

PhillyCraft (6278) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 5, 2012
Bottle from Capones with some friends. Pours a viscous black with syrupy head and lacing. Both on the smaller side though. Aromas were wood, caramel, dark fruit, bread, and bourbon whiskey. Taste is much of the same with a nice dark plum flavor on top of the rich bourbony notes. This one is scary considering the heavy alc is barely present. Need another to lay down for a couple.

GenDV138 (6269) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle (2014, 14.83& ABV) poured into a Belgian snifter. Pours jet black with an oily consistency. Half a finger of tan head that fades into a ring. Aromas of bourbon, dark chocolate, roast. Tasting notes of dark fruit, bourbon, dark chocolate. Full body with a warm and dry finish. Oily mouthfeel, low carbonation. Maybe my palate has developed but I enjoyed last yearís release much more.

Countbeer (6236) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle (35,cl): Vintage 2013: 16,53%ABV: Served in a Chouffe glass at 13 degrees and warming: Motorioil with an unfortunate quick disappearing brown head. Aromas of liqorice, bourbon, roast, dark chocolate, wood roast, oat, sweet tar, rice roast, some dark coffee roast, hint of soy and more darkness I might forget! Flavours of roast, dark chocolate, toffee, raisin, alcohol, bourbon, mocha, bitters, light spice, wood/coffee/malt roast, cookies, loads of tasty dark tones, very delicious! Aftertaste is a mix of roast, bitters, dark chocolate, mocha, wood roast, oat, and again loads of tasty dark tones! Low carbo, thick creamy oily spiced mouthfeel, full bodied. Yum yum!

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2013
2012 vintage. Black with a tan head. The aroma is extremely boozy with some strong chocolate and roasted malt notes. The flavor is also very boozy. I get some big oak, maple and vanilla notes up front, with some chocolate and roasted malt coming through second. The barrel-aged notes are very obvious and really add a lot to the beer. Quite boozy. Thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

thirdeye11 (6093) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2012
(12oz bottle) pours near black with dark tan creamy spare head. Nose of huge barrel character, toasty marshmallows, low roastiness, graham cracker, bourbon, vanilla, smooth alcohol, and a creeping cherry character. Endlessly complex. Taste of rich fudge, light oats and cream, alcohol, wood char, medium roast character, light cherry (perhaps from the alcohol kick), and a medium thick body thatís not overly assertive in any way, surprising given the ABV. Just an amazing beer.
