Bourbon County Brand Stout 2014 release

Bourbon County Brand Stout – Goose Island Beer Co. (Chicago, IL) ABV 13.8% 5 out 5

This is the second year the Bourbon County Brand series by goose island has been released in the San Francisco Bay Area. This year the release has been more of a trickle then a major all at once release. This has made it very hard to find and they sell out the same day or even within hours of a store getting a shipment. BCBS Coffee has been almost in heard of. This is still one of my favorite beer series.

Color is black as midnight with the dark tan head. The scent is strong of bourbon in Oak with a wild punch of the malt. It is the aroma of the gods. Strong taste of the bourbon in the first sip then mellows out for a sweet malty oaky flavor. There’s hints of cocoa in the flavor and a sweet almost vanilla hint

As it warms the chocolate flavor really comes out and the bourbon mellows to a nice smooth mouth feel.
