Picked up a 4 pack of this when I was in Louisiana since it was sold out here. Lucked out and found it at a local bar on tap, haven't dug into my stash. This beer looks like it was poured out of the oil pan of a car, light will not pass thru this. Very small tanish head. Great bourbon flavor on the front end and a good stout finish. Look forward to drinking my 4 pack over the next couple of months

Pours completely opaque with a creamy dark tan head. Sweet malty flavors abound are just enhanced by the aging in bourbon barrels. Awesome taste! Looking forward to sharing over the holidays.

Bourbon Country Brand Stout pours a black color with the smallest tan head. There is a huge bourbon and oak aroma. The taste is Huge, big bourbon flavors, big oak flavors, nice warmth from the alcohol. Flat body, but HUGE HUGE flavors. Overall its good, it is up there.

Pours extremely dark with scant tan head. Smells of rich bourbon. Very full bodied, thick. Fine carbonation gives the beer an almost spicy mouthfeel. Has a rich, malty, stout taste with coffee highlights blended with the smooth bourbon flavor. Perfect melding of a stout and bourbon. Beats KBS hands down.
