4.75/5 rDev +4.9%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75
Appearance: Pours black with short tan head, more than regular BCBS, leaves good lacing
Smell: Bourbon, vanilla, malts, caramel, cherries
Taste: Bourbon up front, but some nice earthy hops, oak, caramel, and cherries
Mouthfeel: Full body, low carbonation (though higher than BCBS)
Overall: Another fantastic BA brew. Worthy of the Bourbon County name.
Serving type: bottle

Another outstanding brew from Goose Island. What it lacks in appearance it makes up for in taste, twofold. Barleywines, nowadays, seem to lack that barley presence in favor of the coffee/chocolate tastes. This is not one of those. The head lacing are virtually nonexistent. So what? If you have no fear of the dark you will feel right at home here.
Serving type: on-tap
