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 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.

Bottle (12 oz). Thanks Os! Black with a small quickly diminishing beige head and no lacing. Aroma of molasses, alcohol, dark fruits, caramel, bourbon, wood, vanilla and chocolate. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet with molasses, red fruits, bourbon, chocolate, wood, vanilla, caramel, coconut, soy sauce and light bitterness. Obviously, there’s alcohol warming in there. Sticky hot finish. Full body. Low to moderate carbonation. Viscous mouthfeel. Really complex brew with a fairly good balance. Good drinkability for a 17,42% abv RIS. I tried it on an hot summer day and I had no problem to drink my half of the bottle.

Pours black into a snifter. Mocha head with little retention recedes to hug rim. Dark pit fruit, espresso and soy aromas. Dark molasses upfront turning to hot licorice in the lasting burn finish.

sonnycheeba (5673) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 24, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2014 Bottle. Pours deep, opaque black with thin, fizzy tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma is bourbon, caramel and roasted malt, prunes, earthy hops, oak, milk chocolate, and light vanilla. Flavor is malt dominate with oak and some supporting hops (light bitterness) and dark fruit esters; bourbon undertones throughout with a dry finish. Full body, low carbonation, and high warmth.

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks DSG. Pours opaque black with a nice brown head, aroma of chocolate, coffee, bourbon and vanilla, flavor of chocolate, coffee, bourbon and wood, full bodied. Great.

badlizard (5533) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUL 7, 2012
UPDATED: JUL 10, 2012 Bottle at Waldos Pizza. Holy Fuck this is an amazing brew. Black with a thin brown head. Chocolate caramel vanilla bourbon maple and wood aroma. Tastes of candy chocolate bourbon strong vanilla and oak caramel and light toasted coconut all swirling together with a light alcohol burn to the finish. Nice cherry flavors emerge as it warms a bit. Thick sticky and oily palate. Excellent overall.

JohnnyJ (5471) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle at stone oakquinox 2012. Black sugary pour, thin tan ring around the edge of the glass. You can see how sugary it is just from the pour. Chocolate, molasses, brown sugar, bourbon, and alcohol. Not terrible for almost 18%, but the sweetness is to much for my liking, which is not suprising.

TimE (5451) - Tokyo, JAPAN - APR 17, 2015
Pitch black color. A bit too rough, dark chocolate with a fair amount of oak. Sweet malty mouth with lots of tooties rolls. Very sweet. Still a bit too rough to rate properly. I would like to revisit in a year or two.

12oz bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, bourbon, some oak and vanilla, a little chocolate and coffee, and some dough. Flavor the same with a lot of roasted malts and bourbon. Smooth, thicker texture. A really good imperial stout that is not as sweet as others that are this strong.
