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.

4.2
Dogbrick (13751) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 7, 2012
Sample at the Central OH BA Tasting at From The Vine on 06/02/2012: Pours an inky black color with a medium thin tan head that recedes steadily to a dense film. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of charred malt, dark chocolate and bourbon. Rich and smooth body with a nicely balanced bourbon character with notes of dark malt, chocolate, vanilla and hops. The finish is somewhat boozy with a lingering oaky aftertaste. Good beer all around.

Camons (13279) - Hasselager, DENMARK - JUL 27, 2012
Bottle @ home. Pours black with a small brown ring of foam along the glasssides. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, dark chocolate, oak, bourbon, booze. Flavor is malts, coffee, dark chocolate/chocolate cake, raisins, oak, bourbon, woodnotes, some booze. Full body, oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation, warming alcoholic finish. Very nice brew. 120712

Bov (13221) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 3, 2017
courtesy of Marcel Vogt; 17.1% - black beer with a moderate foam left; very roasted aroma of mocha, wood, BouRbon and cherry; full-bodied, assertive, very tasty, thick, oily and with a solid sweet maltiness: very bitter, roasted chocolatey, woody and whisky-like finish - huge!

3.9
bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 24, 2012
(12oz bottle) Pours an opaque black body with a small brown head. Aroma of ash, vanilla, oak, toasted bread, biscuit, and chocolate. Flavor of toasted bread, bourbon, chocolate, brown sugar, dark fruit, and caramel. Alcohol is noticeable, but much higher than I would have guessed.

4.1
hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Bottle. Batch - Feb 2015. Poured a black color with a tan head. Roast, dark fruits, woody, coffee, bourbon, vanilla, and molasses. Warming alcohol - drank this after shoveling out from the 10" snow storm that just hit us, so this did hit the spot.

j12601 (13099) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - FEB 19, 2015
Pouring at EBF 2014. Pours a deep black to brown with a thin white head. Big roast, chocolate, cocoa. Sweet, caramel, vanilla, sweet coffee. Maple and cocoa. Sweet and chewy on the finish.

slowrunner77 (12804) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 24, 2014
"Wow - likely the best 15+% beer I’ve ever had or will have. Sweet from both the barreling and the abv, but not overly so. And not hot. I’m a fan of Mephistopheles, but this stout is in a whole nother class. Ridiculously good."

3.7
Sammy (12740) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 5, 2016
Big rich stout, with full corn flavour. They call it bourbon. Black, thick. Tasty, to an extent. Worth a try.

3.8
deyholla (12205) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Bottle thanks to Aaron! Pours an oily black with a very dark brown head that dissipates nearly completely. Aroma has a good amount of raisin with dark grains and dark chocolate backed by a decent bourbon note. Flavor has raisin and dark chocolate up front with a growing bourbon note that remains underlying.

3.8
rosenbergh (11793) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 7, 2014
12 oz bottle. Bottled Jun/2013. From a trade with jcnielsen. Thanks a lot Justin! Enjoyed at the ISKTR 2014. Black colour with no head. The aroma is vinous with roasted malt, mild vinegar and ashy dryness. The flavour is roasted malt, sweetness, ashy notes and dryness. Very strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
