COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"I really wanted to do something special for our 1000th batch at the original brewpub. Goose Island could have thrown a party. But we did something better. We brewed a beer. A really big batch of stout-so big the malt was coming out of the top of the mash tun. After fermentation we brought in some bourbon barrels to age the stout. One hundred and fifty days later, Bourbon County Stout was born-A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with a thick foam the color of bourbon barrels. The nose is a mix of charred oak, vanilla,carmel and smoke. One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer. It overpowers anything in the room. People have even said that its a great cigar beer, but I havent yet tried a cigar that would stand up to it." Brewmaster Greg Hall;

Editors Note: Baudoinia Fulton & Wood Series offering (And the Low Storage entry from FoBAB 2012) is simply Bourbon County Stout aged in the same barrels. It has been alted as it offers no different recipe or barrel type simply the presence of a distillers fungus on the barrels that adds no distinct characteristic to the beer from the fungus itself except for possible oxygen exposure changes. While Brewers Intent indicates that they consider it a new beer, no true distinction aside from this oxidation amount and possible aging time differences separates the beers. Its essentially a single barrel Bourbon County version something we have always treated as regular Bourbon County Stout in the past.

2015 bottle. Still nearly as hot as I remember it being a year ago, although its improved. Aroma is malty, chocolately, and even a bit nutty. Taste is malty caramel, rich chocolate, with medium-full mouth feel. But so so hot still. Maybe its the rose tinted glasses but i remember past releases so much more fondly.

Silny zapach bourbonu ktory w miare ogrzewania wchodzi w ciastko czekoladowe, a w smaku to wlasnie ciastko, gigantyczna kawa kawa, pralinki, oleista faktura i uoglniając, genialna rzecz. Zero alkoholu, zero uwag ode mnie, ciężko opisać, trzeba wypić.

Full bodied and midnight dark. Rich caramel and molasses with a bit of warmed wood and chocolate. Looks beautiful in the bottle and the glass.

Mainuh_man (291) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2016
12 Oz bottle. Pours pitch brown black ties no head and no legs. Aroma of bourbon, cinammon, coffee, alcohol, smoked bacon. Flavor is super sweet, chocolate, alcohol, bourbon, vanilla, finishing with roasty bitter. Full body with a heavy, oily mouthfeel and no carbonation. Overall, super complex and full of character. A little more sweet than I normally like, but awesome.

Tognetta (813) - So Paulo, BRAZIL - OCT 28, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 28, 2016 (2015) totalmente negra, espuma marrom de pouca formao e persistncia. Aroma de cco, caramelo, chocolate, caf, vanilla ... Complexidade difcil de igualar. Paladar de dulor intenso, alcauz, medio amargor torrado. Corpo licoroso e baixa carbonatao. Final de longa persistncia, caldo de cana, malte, caf, chocolate, bourboun fica mais evidente com tempo de copo mas bem inserido, mantm a complexidade em todos os momentos, deliciosa.

Originally rated on 12/5/08. Wow ! what a beer, it pours out like syrup thick and heavy all the way. Blacker than night with a very thin dark tan cap, Aromas a plenty, molasses, raisin, vanilla, burbon soaked oak, and even a little coconut. Flavors were many and complex, At first sip the sweetness of molasses mixed with oak, chocolate and spices, with a slight coffee aftertaste, the alcohol wasnt really noticeable, only a slight burning in my belly and a plesant glow upon my face. Wish i had some more of it :)
