2015 bottle. Aroma of tart red fruit, maybe infected? Looks like bourbon county, who gives a shit, this is a chug. 500ml chugged in 11s. Doesn’t taste infected, fairly smooth if a bit metallic. Low carbonation which is great for a chug. Gagged once. Would chug again. BlazerT (1105) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - APR 10, 2017
Bottled 2015. Pitch black with small, light brown head. Nice, smooth, rich. Full of chocolate, some biscuits. Moderate to light heavy sweet, with long and stable duration. Moderate to high vanilla, coconut and barrel notes. Moderate to full body, silky and semi-thick texture, soft carbonation. ABV is extremely well hidden here. In overall very rich in bourbon and chocolate imperial stout. NightHawk91 (56) - POLAND - APR 8, 2017
2015 bottle (bottled on 01OCT15, 13.7%). Bought in August 2016 by my sister at Top Hops in New York as a gift for me. First of all, I’m crazy happy it’s not infected.
This is a great beer for sure. Bourbon. Chocolate. Liquorice. Toffee, sweet caramel. A lot of nice smoke. Vanilla. Warming. Full bodied, thick, sticky. Not overly sweet, right in my favor. A near perfect BA Imperial Stout, I could have it more often. Pilsnertest (296) - SWEDEN - APR 8, 2017

The aroma is perfect for the style with roasted malt coffee and chocolate. The appearance is almost black. The taste is perfect for the style. The plate is thick. Overall a near perfect stout just a bit heavy on the alcohol for me. 60minuteman (1715) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Bottled on 10/7/2016 #1301. Dark appearance. Too damn boozy, too dang sweet, too freaking strong, the vanilla hits you in the face, my lips picker and my throat closes with every sip. But damn is it smooth as it all works extremely well. I’ll try it again next year....at least it’ll make it to my cellar that time...maybe.

Goose Island brews a limited supply of the Bourbon County Stout. So limited that many bars place a restriction of one per person. I had the privilege of sampling it at the South Side Grille during their Goose Island Tap Takeover yesterday.
Pour: Half-finger espresso creme head. Black tar body.
Bouquet: Roasted coffee and cacao bean. Earthy, sweet. Caramel and vanilla bean. Oak bite. Smoke.
Sip: Coffee and dark chocolate. Buttery caramel. Toffee nut. Morphs into a molasses syrupy viscosity. And finishes with a bite of smoky bourbon. Bourbon flavor really opens updating as it breathes. Mid glass it bites like a rye.
Mouth-Feel: Luscious, full bodied, velvety, creamy like butter. This is a beer that is very “in the nose” you can feel it it your sinuses. It had that quintessential bourbon whiskey burn that seems to encompass you, and kindles a fire in your chest.
Overall: I imagine a nice steak, or duck fat braised pork chop going nicely before drinking this. This is an after-dinner beer, it is a show stealer and needs its own space to shine. Drink it like a digestif.

Vintage 2016 (13.8%) : Aroma is massive chocolate notes with vanilla and bourbon. Deep and rich bourbon notes with sweetness as well. Taste is very wide with lots of malt, brown sugar sweetness, molasses, vanilla. Light alcohol, but absolutely not disturbing. This was awesome! rami_pl (3460) - Warszawa, POLAND - MAR 19, 2017
