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 it’s a great cigar beer, but I haven’t yet tried a cigar that would stand up to it." Brewmaster Greg Hall;

Editor’s 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. It’s essentially a single barrel Bourbon County version something we have always treated as regular Bourbon County Stout in the past.

Butelka wersja 2016. Deugstacja @ DobryZbeer Co te piwo to ja nawet nie! Kolejny piwny gral zdegustowany. Faktura piwa jest gładka, kremowa i mega oleista. Po otwarciu butelki buchają aromaty czekolady, kawy, wanilii i kokosa. W ustach mega wyklejające i słodkie. Mistrzostwo!

MelvinKalksma (1508) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 29, 2017

Aroma:
Heavy aroma of malts, caramel, wood, bourbon, vanilla, chocolate and roasted malts.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with no/a slight brown/darm brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts heavy sweet with malts, caramel, wood, bourbon, vanilla and chocolate; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. That bourbon is extremely noticeable in this beer. Lovely aroma and an even better flavour. The head disappears fast, but the appearance is great for what it is.

On tap at World Of Beer. Such a big beer, the ABV is well hidden and with so many big flavours this is a real winter warmer.

Bottle pour with virtually no head. Sharp aroma of dark chocolate. The taste is amazing with a large amount of vanilla sweetness.

beerplace (1599) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2017
500ml bottle at Ilya’s. Vintage 2015 (30-Sep-2015). Pours an almost black with a weak brown head. Aroma is bourbon, dark fruits, lots of nuts, leather, molasses. Taste is very sweet, pretty similar to aroma with chocolate notes. Too sweet, not very much of bourbon character (middle level), but, of course, very good.

UPDATED: JAN 11, 2017 Butelka. Edycja 2015. Na całe szczęście niezakażone. Czarne, nieprzejrzyste, Piany brak. Aromat zdominowany przez bourbon, mokre drewno, wanilię. Pod powyższymi ukryte ciemne owoce, oraz masa gorzkiej czekolady, pralin. Aromat wspaniały. W smaku bourbon, gorzka czekolada, wanilia, ciemne owoce. Dają o sobie znak jeżyny. Konsystencja likierowa, lepka, gęsta. Wysycenie i goryczka średnia. Podsumowując należy przyznać, że jest to wspaniałe piwo, kompletne, przesycone bourbonem i wanilią. Alkohol doskonale wkomponowany w całość. Daje o sobie znak dopiero po ogrzaniu trunku do temperatury pokojowej w postaci lekkiego grzania w przełyk. Posmak pozostaje w ustach na długo w postaci czekoladowych pralin i oczywiście bourbonu. Zacne piwo. Przyjemności dodaje pojemność, którą warto delektować się jak najdłużej. Zacny trunek na rozpoczęcie nowego roku!
PS. Chodzi mi po głowie niedawno degustowany BrewDog Black Eyed King Imp Vietnamese Coffee. Wrócę do niego i czuje, że dokonam edycji oceny :)
