COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Always on the lookout for the next thing they can throw in a barrel, our brewers actually looked no further than their own backyard for this release – literally. Inspired by the berries they remember first eating from the trees in their yards; this Bourbon County release is full of the dark, spicy, and pleasantly sweet flavors of mulberries, marionberries, and boysenberries. This trio of fruit nicely rounds out the spice and heat of the rye whiskey barrels in which they were aged, resulting in a smooth, jammy stout perfect for sipping on your back porch.

American double / Imperial stout 12.7 % ABV APPEARANCE: Poured out a deep dark night sky black, with reddish hues around the rim. No head at all and no lacing. Very small tan halo. AROMA: Right away I am blown away by the nose on this. Intense chocolate covered berries, jammy, sweet malts. The rye barrel hits hard, vanilla, oaky. Nice espresso in there also. TASTE: Blown away. Intense velvety chocolate and a ripe berries. Very flamboyant. No hiding the layers of flavors. Dark, deep, roasted coffee little spice and heat on the backend I'm assuming from the Templeton barrels. MOUTHFEEL: Thick and syrupy like I expect form Bourbon County. Very little carbonation, coats the mouth in an oily slick feel. OVERALL: I for one loved this beer! Very balanced for being so complex. My favorite Bourbon County to date. RATING: 5/5 Zombie Heads! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
