Notes/Commercial Description:
Baudoinia is a collaboration between Brewmaster Brett Porter and John Laffler. Baudoinia is the name of a fungus that grows on barrels stored low to the ground in distillery rickhouses. Given these barrels uniqueness, they have aged Goose Island's Bourbon County Brand Stout solely in these Baudoinia covered barrels for a new spin on Bourbon County.

4.7/5  rDev +1.5%

On tap at Madison's, 2014 GToM Eve.

A: Looks like BCBS. It has the thinnest of head, showing a light sand color. Jet black, surface is mostly still, body is viscous/thick. Looks pretty.

S: Restrained bourbon, oak and vanilla, all wonderfully integrated, with the dark chocolate more in a support role.

T: Rich dark cocoa shows through much more than the nose, lots of woody character and delicious bourbon, medium-light sweetness, a hint of anise and coconut, and more cocoa on an exceedingly long and decadent finish. Absolutely no heat or alcohol to this, unlike fresh or a few years old BCBS.

M: Full bodied and velvety, with the light carbonation really spot on. I don't see how they could improve the mouthfeel.

O: Great complexity. Hard to exactly pinpoint how this differs from regular BCBS save for the lack of alcohol taste that BCBS often displays. Exceedingly well balanced and integrated.

On tap at Madison's, pre great taste

This beer looks like and smells like bourbon county stout....Where it differs is ONLY on the finish at this point (From what ive heard this beer was much better a year ago)... And While I love BCBS and rate it a 5/5....this beer is just slightly under that. The finish has a subtle earthy taste to it that dissapears as it warms. Like I said, pretty much just BCBS with a minute difference d/t the type of barrel that it was aged in...I cant say don't go out of your wat to try this beer, I did and walked away with no regrets.
