'13 was better than '14 in my opinion. Coffee was too fruity in the 14. Still real solid tho

2014 bottle.

Much coffee on the nose and the initial taste is similar, then quickly gives way to the bourbon. Warmed to near room temp and this didn't change it much.

Had high hopes for it but it absolutely disapointed me, tastes almost like a bitter cold coffee. Too bold for me.

2/15/15 - Another excellent Bourbon County - I liked this even more than the standard stout. Poured thick, with an excellent aroma of coffee and a hint of chocolate and fruit. Great taste, and loved the carbonated feel, the strength of the taste and alcohol. Strong, but easy to drink. Not as bitter as the standard stout, I will definitely seek out this version, and I look forward to trying others in this great line of beers! Well done Goose Island!!!

Look- Black as the midnight sky 20 years after the Zombie Apocalypse.

Smell- That sweet, roasty coffee that puts that happy feeling in you heart. Great Bourbon and oak that make you say Oooooo WEEE!

Taste- That coffee is the truth. It cannot lie no matter how much it wants to.

Feel- So creamy and smooth. Almost as good as the first time ;)

Overall- Halfway through I had to take to bed and show it proper loving. This is one you take home to Mom.

I stepped into it 2 weeks ago when someone got me a growler of BCBCS. It is the best coffee stout and probably beer of all types I've had. Unfortunately, I haven't figured out how to find more!
