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.

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 :)

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2017 2013-as verzió. Az év utolsó söreként jobbat nem is kívánhatnék, egy Bourbon County levadászása ugyanis innen Magyarországról egy fehér oroszlán foglyul ejtéséhez hasonló egyszerűséggel bír, többek között ezért tartottam különösen nagy becsben a tavalyi évben beszerzett palackot. Olajos, éjfekete teste egy gondolatnyi hablepellel bír csupán, mely hamar elillan, nemígy illatai, a fahordók dongái közé ivódott vaníliás, kókuszos aromák, kekszes, marcipános foszlányokkal körülölelve. Malátaszirupos kortyai éppoly vaníliásak, mint aromái, s nemkülönben olajosak, bársonyosak, kenhetőek, valalamely alkoholos desszert töltelékeként szolgálhatnának, ha létezne olyasféle férfias karakterű cukrászati remekmű, amely méltó otthona lehetne a mennyei tartalomnak. Ez valóban a legek itala, különleges alkalmak imperial stout-ja, a tonnás súlyú kókuszos csokoládés, kávés, vaníliás bourbon-jegyek fesztiválja, utánozhatatlan tekintély, felsőbbrendűség megnyilvánulása. Varázslatos zárása az óévnek.

Pours oily black, no carbonation. Aroma is chocolate and bourbon. Mouthfeel is very thick, like drinking liquid fudge. A pretty hefty bourbon taste on the back.

Opened a 2013 bottle for Christmas with an old friend. Boy did it age nicely. The flavor was enhanced with age. I’m glad I have 7 bottles left.

Realizing there is a lot of hype around this beer, it is still a great beer. Aromas of booze, vanilla, raisins, must. Back pour, brown head. Fudge, dried plums, raisins, vsnilla, bourbon. Oily on the palate, warm finish. A must have every year.

Beergaard (338) - Aarhus, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2016
Wonderfull. Rye bread, licorice, dried fruit, figs, syrup, honey, booze and a ton of bourbon.

DrunkenYeti (11) - Montana, USA - DEC 23, 2016
Strong bourbon flavor but not overpowering. Pours dark black with no head. This honestly is a highly overrated beer and there are numerous other BBA stouts that are equal or superior.

Pintofjoe29 (43) - Dingman Ferry, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 20, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 4, 2017 Pint bottle poured into a snifter. Pours jet black with a one finger copper head that quickly vanishes. Big, BIG aromas coming from the glass. I can basically smell this thing from across the room. Vanilla, bourbon, custard, soy sauce, and booze on the nose. Taste is rich bourbon, buttery caramel, and vanilla, with a subtle smokiness. Suprisingly supple mouthfeel for a brew that is so big. Outstanding. I was genuinely upset when I finished this.
