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.

danielcurtis81 (1519) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 11, 2012
Served from a 12 oz bottle from OTM. The appearance is a rich glossy black with some ruby edges. A nice mahogany head. Rich roasty malts, sweet brown sugar, bourbon, and barrel fill the nose, with a heavy booziness but not a pure alcohol. The flavors follow with a rich full roast malt, sweet oaky bourbon, peanut butter blossom cookies, brown sugar, molasses, very nutty, some buttery-ness. Very full mouth with a good drying oak on the tongue and a alcohol burn on the roof and cheeks. The booziness is there but itís not raw alcohol heat. It is full of flavor and intensity. I can see why there is a lot of love for this brew and I can see why some people would give it a lower rating. I really enjoyed it and itís worth seeking out.

chinchill (4760) - South Carolina, USA - APR 26, 2017
On tap at the Pour Taproom in Greenville, SC. Pours with a dark, essentially opaque, brown-black body topped by a decent beige head that has very good retention. Feel: full body with medium carbonation. Boozy and warm but smooth. Aroma: boozy, sweet and nutty, with dark baked bread. Flavor: strong. Boozy, but quite tame for ~17% ABV. Hints of roasted nuts, coffee (aftertaste), dark toast, coffee, vanilla, and dark dried fruits. Moderately sweet fading to mildly bitter. Overall: a rich and delicious whale of a beer.

Pours a jet black with a foamy tan head. Aroma is bourbon, chocolate, roast, molasses, caramel, toffee, and some booze, though surprisingly not hotter for the high ABV. Flavor is bourbon, vanilla, bread, chocolate, roast, caramel, toffee, and molasses. Leaves a warming sensation. Smooth, soft carbonation. Great!
