Bourbon County Stout (2015 Vintage)
ABV: 13.8%
IBU: 60
Style: American Double/ Imperial Stout

A part of Goose Island’s barrel aged craft beer series, the Bourbon County Stout (2015 vintage) is an imperial stout aged in bourbon barrels in honor of their 1000th batch at their original Clybourn brewpub. It’s the perfect craft brew for those who enjoy a darker beer with hints of bourbon. 

Appearance: Goose Island’s Bourbon County Stout pours an opaque, very dark brown colour with a fine layer of a mocha colored foam head

Aroma: True to its name, the stout has a strong bourbon aroma with notes charred spice, caramel sweetness, vanilla, chocolate and smoky roasted malt. There’s also hints of nutty scents

Taste: The taste of the bourbon county stout is similar to its aroma. The taste of bourbon is present from the start, with charred oak and smoky malts to follow. It also has subtle notes of chocolates, caramel, toffees and other nuts

Mouthfeel: It has a full-bodied feel, and is creamy, thick and silky, with low amounts of carbonation. For the alcohol content it has, the Bourbon County Stout goes down smoothly

Karen I am a adventure-seeker, dog lover, and beer enthusiast from Honolulu, Hawaii who is now enjoying life in San Diego. My interest in craft beer began in Belgium during my time studying abroad in London, England, and was only furthered after I returned to the States. Since moving down to San Diego, I have enjoyed many new experiences with my pup, including visiting pet-friendly tasting rooms and the city’s great outdoors. I enjoy her daily cup of coffee and quality time spent at the gym. As someone always looking forward to trying something new, being an Alien will open doors to new experiences.
