Back in 2014, I was lucky to taste Bourbon County Stout 2012 from Goose Island.
When I bought it, I knew little about it, other that it was expensive as hell. Now I’m kind of used to the price tag.
It is probably the best barrel aged Imperial Stout I ever have had. It is so incredibly delicious and overwhelming, and I would wish I could taste it again. Bourbon County Stout 2015 is out there but is a rarity, and extremely hard to get. Anybody got a bottle or two?
The carbonation is still quite active. The foam is brown and disappears extremely fast. The beer is pitch black.
Wow, what a smell of bourbon. Bourbon County 2012 smells of chocolate, mocha and candied sugar.
Bourbon County Stout 2012 first tasted of sweet liquorice, then a burning sensation of bourbon shows up in the mouthfeel.
I talked a lot about the mouthfeel, and not so much about the taste, so I can not tell you how it tasted, I’m a bit bombed out about that as well.
But did we liked that mouthfeel, yeah we did! It was smooth, creamy and nothing like we ever tried before.
Bourbon County Stout 2012 was an enormous beer for two rookies, which never had tried anything like this before.
It tasted of chocolate, coffee, liquorice, smoke and bourbon (there it was).
It is the biggest and badest Imperial Stout I ever have tried, and it was probably once in a lifetime.
