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.

Sample from bottle @ Fobab. This is a great stout. Big bourbon notes lots of dark malt flavor. Great balance between the two. Huge dark strong beer but still somehow very drinkable and incredibly smooth.

At the brewery, with the same group, pours a dark black pour with a java head. Nose is whiskey and heavy malt. Taste is upfront whiskey with heavy malt. Finishes on whiskey malty notes with a long finish. Another sipper ! Quaff Score 8 / 10....8-3-8-4-18

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!

bottle. Thick black with small head. Big ass stout matched with big bourbon. Plenty of flavor to go around. Dark fruit, chocolate, somewhat hot bourbon, light oak. I can’t say it all melds perfectly, but it’s a very good beer nonetheless.

Wow. One mother of a stout. Very intense. Pours a thick black... Almost no head. Aromas of bourbon, vanilla, dried fruit. Flavours are sherry, dried fruit, burnt malts, bourbon, dark chocolate, espresso. Heat on the way down. Excellent, but a sipper.

Let’s start with the 16.9 percent. Like a blinking neon light flashing "warning". Seriously, the best warning in the world. Aroma is what you might expect from a deeply carmeled stout. It pours dark as night with a small tan head. The taste?- very raisin flavored in the best possible way. No indication of the high APV in taste or in the finish. Just a rich, sweet taste without being coying. Will definitely cellar one.

Backlog entry. Really nice and potent. Smooth, creamy, thick. High alcohol which is actually covered pretty well.

SteveOrz85 (249) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2017
Recieved a bottle of this from a good friend. 12 oz bottle served in chalice glass. Poured dark dark black. Thin tan head. Little bit of lacing. Aroma is mostly vanilla and sweet chocolate. Flavor is chocolate and bourbon with slight burnt taste in flavor. Hint off coffee and nuttyness. Very rich in flavor. Little bit of sweetness. Full bodied beer with a lighter carbonation. Over all a very good bourbon stout. Very complex and flavorful.
