Never had a Bourbon County Brand Stout, so I asked my local guy if he had any sitting around. Said he had one bottle, a 2011 sitting behind the counter. Told him to wrap it up!
12 oz bottle dated 11/11/11
A - Pours almost black, with little to no head.
S - As soon as I uncapped the bottle, the bourbon smell was evident, if not prevalent. My wife asked, from across the room, what I had just opened. Dark fruits up front, with a hint of chocolate. Wonderful smell.
T - Mellows as you drink it, with the chocolate and vanilla up front, accented by the bourbon which, to me, seems to become more prevalent as I work my way through it..
M - Smooth and creamy. The alcohol is there, but doesn't make it harsh. Wonderful feel.
Overall - Incredible beer. Only my second bourbon barrel aged, but it reinforced the fact that I really enjoy these! I could drink tho all night. Of course, I probably wouldn't make it to work tomorrow! Fantastic beer. If you can find one, give it a shot!
