Okay, must say before trying this one I was sure it was all a bunch of hype, I mean come on Goose Island is a decent brewery, but no Founders! I have been won over, Bourbon County Stout lives up to the hype and more, simply put...amazing! Pricey? Yes, but one of the few pricey beers that is totally worth it! Next time you have a few extra bucks burning a hole in your pocket, take the plunge if you can get your hands on this bad boy. You won't regret it!

This beer makes most others pale in comparison! The longer you let it linger in your mouth the more complex the flavor becomes. It's rich vanilla, bourbon, and cocoa flavors combine with a mouth feel that creates a rich and creamy beer that looks as great as it tastes. I can only imagine this beer getting better with age and I'm going to pick up a six pack, put it away and have one a year for the next six years. I'll report back in 2020!
