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.

LearninBeer (530) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2017
The aroma is dates, figs, a little vanilla. Pours dark brown almost black, with tan head mostly diminishing and very good lacing. The taste is sweet and bitter. The body is medium/full, the texture creamy, the carbonation lively and the finish long. This is fresh not aged, a little sweet but lots of flavor, no noticeable burn from the alcohol percentage. VERY GOOD!

Jet black pour with a thin espresso head. Aroma is full of chocolate with a bit of oak. A little smokey too. Hint of booze in the aroma. Lace present. Huge mouth. Flavor is very complex. Roasted malt, chocolate and a little bourbon. Slight high alcohol/solvent like character. Burns in the mouth a bit. Extreme beer indeed.

Hopmaestro (1539) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 27, 2017
Aroma is sweet roasted malts with licorice and bourbon. Wet wood. Taste is enormous but still being under control. Robust and distinct chocolate, dark roasted malts, bourbon drenched raisins and probably one of the thickest stouts I’ve ever had. Still it’s dangerously drinkable and goes down a little too fast. I bid you goodnight!

Ibrew2or3 (8458) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - FEB 26, 2017
Bottle pours with a dark mahogany colored body that supports a thin tan head. The aroma offers up molasses sweetened dark roasted malts, chocolate and mild booze. The taste delivers smooth sweetened dark roasted malts, chocolate, some chocolate fudge, black licorice and modest restrained booze. Solid sipper

yourilevesque (1694) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 26, 2017
Dégustée en compagnie d’Alexandre. Densité moyenne du liquide. Ce dernier m’apparaît comme plutôt mince et aucunement décadent. Corps étroit, bulle moyenne. Umami est le mot qui me vient spontanément en tête lorsque je pense à cette bière. Belle présence de la barrique, texture molle et sans vie, si ce n’est qu’une bonne dose de chaleur d’alcool. Beaucoup de saveurs de caramel, un fond de soya, du chêne, de l’alcool. Tout est bien intégré mais manque important de finition pour mon appréciation personnelle. Puissante et plutôt agressive, une petite bouteille bouteille se partage tout de même bien.

kustie (1044) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2017
Bottle from systembolaget. Opaque black color with tanned head. Aroma has bourbon, sweet malt, caramel, dark fruits and licorice. Taste is malty with long sweet aftertaste. Flavors of sweet bourbon, caramel, dark chocolate, dark fruits, vanilla and oak. Very strong but still very drinkable with very nice silky mouth feeling. Complex and strong one but alcohol still not dominating at all. Sweet but not too sweet. Very nice.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2017 Flaska systembolaget. Svart vätska. Ljusbrunt skum. Doft av vanilj, bourbon, choklad och sirap. Mycket bourbon och fat i smaken. Rostade toner med värmande alkohol.

Bottled Feb 19, 2016. Dark pour with a quarter inch of tan head in a snifter glass. The aroma and taste have plenty of bourbon, molasses, vanilla, oak, and a slight burn to finish. Make sure that you let it warm, your patience will be rewarded.
