Now this is Bourbon County. I had this very fresh 2 days before the official release and didn't care for it at all. The berry was way too prominent. Luckily thanks to Matt @Capones I had a second last night, and it was superb.
Beautiful berry purpleish color hits my snifter first then morphs into the familiar black, but keeps the berry highlighting. Gorgeous. Perfect carbonation, very alive in the glass. Huge whiskey aroma, some spice from the rye treatment along with the berry notes, vanilla and coconut. I'm thinking this aroma is very similar to Cherry Rye. Taste is chocolate berry fudge cake, very thick, great mouthfeel. The berry is definitely less than 3 months ago, turning this into Bourbon County perfection.

A - Jet black, minimal mocha head that dissipates quickly.
S - Strawberry pop-tarts. Berry dominates the nose. You get hints of chocolate and bourbon.
T - Wow. Mixed berry cobbler with a chocolate, but not bitter finish. Deep rich berry flavor that isn't tart or artificial at all. The bourbon gives it another layer of sweetness that is different. Very delicious.
M - I would have liked it to be thicker but it was ok. Not thin by any means.
O - Best variant I've had and best fruit stout ive ever had. This beer drinks incredible right now.
