Best Barrel Aged Stout Ive had, surprised its not rated higher.

Unfortunately I don't see my self buying this anymore, the InBev thing was a weak punk ass move. Fuck that, I'm out.

2014 Vintage. From the bottle, it pours a solid black with virtually no head. Bourbon scent predominates. The mouth gets a solid hit of alcohol to go along with the burnt wood flavor and lovely malt. An Aperitif!

Bourbon County Brand Stout Vintage 2013 opened and drank on 8/31/17 (14.2%) into a tulip

Dark brown almost black appearance with little to no head

Bourbon and oaky wood-like smell with notes of sweetness assuming chocolate

Taste is sticky sweet with notes of tobacco and coffee and you can definitely taste this beer was aged bc of its overall oaky flavor

Little to no carbonation, thick and full-bodied with out being overly boozy...The 14.2% is completely masked as this is extremely drinkable

Overall and awesome stout, probably the best I have ever had the pleasure of drinking and I cannot wait until this bottle is available in my area as I will try to get as much of it to drink as possible. Ages very well too.
