An amazing example of a category style. Bourbon County will leave it's mark as an exceptional beer.

A = The liquid is the color of a darkly charred barrel, the foam and lace appear with a dark complexion similar to well used and aged rope.

S = There are so many things going on here! Let's start with the enticing scent of rich and musky bourbon (served straight from the cask) melded with overtones of coffee, chocolate, hazel nut, and light citrus.

T = A fair amount of carbonation tickles tha palate as the thick rush of oily bourbon, coffee, and nutty chocolate explode on the palate. Decently high ABV warms the mouth and throat and the bourbon finish lingers a long time.

M = Solid and warming with bold flavors and aromatics on the finish.

D = A delicious quaff that will have you reaching for a second glass. All "destination" here and meant to be savored slowly as the beer comes closer to room temperature.

Two mugs up from the BeerKing!

Bottled on 10/11/07.

Pours out very thick and black, with reddish hues. Generates no head, even with a hard pour. Leaves a ring of fine bubbles around the edge, that stick to the sides of the glass when swirled.

Massive bourbon smell when the bottle opens. Big vanilla and oaky aromas. Chocolate cake soaked in bourbon or dark rum. Molasses. The amount of bourbon character is outstanding.

Wow. Explosive. Basically everything in the nose is on the palate. Like a boozy chocolate cake. Then there's spicy oakiness, and sweet molasses or caramel flavors. Some examination finds dark burnt malt, which is supported by a buried hop profile to add bitterness. Some dark roasted coffee notes show up over time. Juicy plum is a nice treat, as well. Finishes oaky, with some smoke. Some alcohol tingling on the palate and on the way down. Will probably be alleviated with some more aging. This was at around 8 months. Of course, after half a bottle, you won't get more than a pleasant warming out of it.

Very full mouthfeel. Fills the palate with flavor. Carbonation is soft and barely noticeable. Suits the beer quite well. If only more bourbons coated the tongue like this.

Drinkability suffers from the high abv, and the overpowering flavors. It would be a waste to drink more than one in a session. Sharing a bottle is not a bad idea. It's not an everyday beer either. Minor quibbles with an excellent package. Still a wonderful beer experience, and a must-have for beer advocates. I'll definitely revisit the next vintage.

This is my highest scoring beer to date.

This beer sounds powerful. The label's simple straightforward story readies the reader for its impending impact.

The eyes: This double stout pours out an extreme darkness devoid of all light. A vigorous pour fails to produce any lasting effect of a head. What quickly disappears is colored a dark tan. I don't know if I've ever viewed a beer so close to black. Perhaps Nøgne Ø Dark Horizon shares the title. Aside from the blackness there is little else to discuss without any head and subsequent lacing.

The nose: Upon cracking this bottle open I'm blasted with vanilla and booze. The effect of the bourbon cannot be understated and truly calls to attention immediately. The beer screams "Get the F out of my way!" Beneath the vanilla and bourbon there's a nice charred nearly smoke like quality that creates a unique dimension that adds depth and character.

The tongue: First to note is the near syrupy and thick quality of this big stout. It coats and covers as the flavor lingers long on the palete. Low on carbonation and rightly so. The booze provides a glowing and warm character after swallowing, but it grows enjoyable rather than a sharp stab of burning alcohol. The vanilla continues to play a large role, but it is less dominant than in the nose. The sticky mouthfeel quality enhances the perception of sweetness. The charred wood of the nose is not evident while tasting. There is some chocolate and more specifically cocoa flavors especially towards the end. Plum skins (it feels strange to type this) come through and fit in nicely with the flavor profile.

The mind: I am filled with delusions provided by this single beer. It is truly astonishing, but refrains from being overwhelming or cloying. It is big in all the right places rather than sloppy and out of place. Surely a single bottle will due, but it doesn't go down with any degree of difficulty. A truly exciting experience.

It pours an absolutely obsidian black, like the darkest, velvet celestial wormhole. Two fingers of whipped cocoa brown head sink soon to vestigial sprinkles. Oh...and lacing?...lacing?...we don't need no stinking lacing!

In the aroma, malt is dark roasted and charred with deep caramel, dark chocolate, and black molasses. Dates, raisins, vanilla, and smoky oak join a hint of bourbon and a hot shot of alcohol.

Upon sipping, with heavy emphasis on the act of sipping, it's heartily sweet with caramel, dark cherry, molasses, figs, dates, and singed sugar. It then crisps a beat with baker's chocolate, raw cocoa, and espresso. Vanilla, oak, and smoke ground a glaring flash of vaporous alcohol. Residual malt sugar and spirited bourbon join burnt biscuit bottoms in gracing a finish of mild crispness and evaporative alcohol coolness. My god, it's full of flavor!

Full bodied, it flows fully and slowly, like straight 30W, and the light crisp glow seals the deal.

If there's a flavor profile that's fuller, deeper, and more complex, and better blended and crafted, I've yet to find it. Everything a monster stout should be, this one seems to be. Granted, the ABV is outsized, aggressive, and white hot, but if you can bear the buzz the flavor is a rich reward. Light dies here and flavor explodes, and the happiness it brings is a joy to experience and behold.

Had this at a recent tasting, poured into a tasting pint glass. Pours a black with a little ruby ring and a bit of head not much though. Smell is busting out with a nice roasted malt character with strong coffee, dark chocolate and a bit of sweet alcohol grain. Taste is out of this world it starts off slowly with a hint of sweet malted raison with hints of coffee and dark choclate, the finish is german chocolate cake which is amazing to me. This has to be one of the best stouts that I have ever tasted truly unique and the amazing flavors really add alot to this beer.

12oz bottle, 2007 vintage, poured into my snifter. I have fond memories of the first time i had this beer - Feb of 2007 at the pub in Wrigleyville, during my newbie days. Onto the beer

A: Pitch black with a thin, dark brown head that recedes fairly quickly to a ring. There's some carbonation running up the side of my glass

S: Intoxicating in it's thickness and intensity of aromas. Bourbon (you don't say!) chocolate, coffee, plums, raisins. My nemesis oxidation seems to have run through my collection of twist-off bottles and this one's no different. However, in the case of this beer, it's pleasant as it adds to the intensity. In ways, this beer right now reminds me of oak aged Dark Lord. Intense! As this one warms up, I'm getting some vanilla and maybe, some oak?

T: Massive bourbon booziness to start things off with a fantastic combination of chocolate, molasses, cocoa, raisins and coffee on the finish. There's a pleasing alcohol heat too. Excellent stuff, way better than the Founders KBS.

M: Heavy, creamy and yet silky smooth on the tongue. Fantastic stuff

D: At 13%, I'm not going to drink more than one tonight but I wish I could

**Edit 16 July 2012**
I'm revisiting this beer after over a year. It's been longer since I've revisited the 2007 vintage (bottled 11 Oct 2007) that I reviewed above.

The nose is incredibly smooth and mellow. Rich, fudge, dark chocolate, mellow bourbon (never thought I'd say that about BCS), moderate alcohol (ditto), a little oak. Very well integrated. Not much oxidation per se, though age is apparent, specifically in its mellowness. Decadent. The palate is similar, with a lot more vanilla up front along with booze and bourbon. Cocoa, dark chocolate, mildly bitter with a moderate tannin character that's washed over by the sweetness. It does, however, linger on in the finish, along with a little booze. Vanilla chocolate fudge. Yum. While full in body, the alcohol does lighten the palate some. Excellent stuff, though I think the 07 is on a gentle downhill trajectory now.


**28 Dec 2013**
My last bottle of the 08 vintage. The booze has really mellowed out on the nose, and amazingly enough, oxidation hasn't taken over, allowing the blend of smoke, chocolate, bourbon and tootsie roll Come out. Dark fruit - dates and raisins- represent oxidation here. The palate is boozy, chocolate , sweet and yummy. Vanilla, dark caramel, dark chocolate, dried dates and a firming oak tannin character are all present. Excellent, 4.5 across the board.

Single, twelve-ounce bottle just purchased from New Beer Distributors on Chrystie Street in Manhattan for $5.25...
When I say pitch-black, I mean that this beer poured a jet-black, engine-oil, ebony hue with a copper, tan, frothy head that left hardly any lacing on the edge of the glass...
Strong aroma of deep, dark, rich, burnt chocolate on the nose with powerful hints of alcohol...
The flavor on this beer was literally above and beyond in terms of depth, character, richness, and flavor... Strong hints of dark chocolate, oak-vanilla, bourbon, brandy, and rum dominate the mouth... Much more rich and fuller than your average Imperial Stout with layers upon layers of velvety depth... Definitely a sipper to be enjoyed over a long period of time...
Very creamy, rich, thick, and strong...
Recommended if you like the style...

I enjoyed this beer from the comfort of my own living room. From 12-oz bottle bottled on 10/12/07 to my Grimbergen chalice glass.

Appearance: Pours motor oil black thickness with a little bit of head that disappears pretty quickly.

Smell: Smells of bourbon whisky, chocolate, a hint of coffee and I think cherries. There is a lot going on here.

Taste: Real nice and sweet at the beginning, with chocolate tones, caramel and sweet malts. Spicy alcohol and bitterness ends the tasting just right.

Mouthfeel: Buttery-smooth and coats your throat on the way down.

Drinkability: The high alcohol content keeps this from being a beer I could drink many of in one sitting, but would make for an excellent after dinner drink. I wasn't able to confirm the 13% as listed by Wetpaperbag, but the alcohol is definitely up there. Would definitely recommend.

A 2006 bottle that I received in a trade.

This looks as viscous and syrupy as anything I have ever had. A slight dark mocha head emerges and swiftly falls (to be expected on a beer of this age).

An intense aroma of sweet vanilla and alcohol.

A hugely flavorful brew. A Chocolate, vanilla, whiskey brew that still has a punch of alcohol after 2 years. Extremely sweet without being cloying. Gobs of malt and hints of smoke.

Thick would be an understatement. Very Nice.

A very big beer that held up well after 2 years. It gets a high mark for drinkability because of its massive flavor.

A: Poured thick and black into my pint glass. Almost no head and low carbonation.

S: WOW! Lots of smoke, some oakiness, roasted coffee, chocolate. Very complex and pungent. You can smell this from about 10 feet away.

T: Again, very complex. Strong, oaky smokiness hits first (very similar to bourbon flavor), followed by a lot of sweet chocolaty malt. Slight hop bitterness. Taste seemed to mellow and smooth out as the beer warmed.

M: VERY thick and syrupy mouthfeel. Smooth with little carbonation.

D: I found myself sipping this beer as if it were a fine wine. Smokiness is a bit pungent and high ABV, so I definitely wouldn't want to have more than one or maybe two of these.

I don't have a lot of experience with this style, but for those who are fans of the style, I would definitely recommend this beer.

Poured from the bottle like thick syrup. Deep brown-black and blocked all light. Nice brown head with decent lacing.

This aroma of this beer reminded me of a cherry cordial drenched in bourbon. Rich dark chocolate tones with plenty of cherry, smoke, and alcohol.

The taste was very heavy on malt. I tasted sweet, dark chocolate, some of the cherry notes as noticed in the aroma, and undertones of vanilla and toasted oak from the bourbon aging.

I felt like I could chew this beer and the chocolately finish lingered on and on.

Excellent beer but definitely a sipper.

This was the 2007 variety purchased in New York City for $5.75 a bottle. Served at 40 degrees in the Sam Adams *ultimate* beer glass.

Pours black with a thin, forced head. The intial aroma and taste was heavy to the bourbon side. 40 degrees is too cold for this beer. As it warmed up, the flavor became an amazing balance between bourbon and chocolate.

A very complex and enjoyable bourbon beer. Make sure it's not served too cold.

2007 Edition - Pours deep down black , not as thick as motor oil but getting close. Not much carbonation but there is one beautiful 1/16 inch caramel colored head. Heavy lacing. First sniff: Smells like bourbon straight out of the bottle with deep roasted malts aroma overtones. First tastes is thick with a lovely bourbon kick followed by heavy malts, coffee, and chocolate - slight hint of vanilla trying to poke through. This is an awesome treat definitely "World Class".

12oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Pours a pitch tar black with a thin tan tiny bubble head.

Smells of bourbon, wood, sweet raisin, plum, date, tobacco, smoke, molasses, black licorice & a bunch of other stuff I can't identify. Not necessarily in that order. There's alot going on here. Great.

Tastes of whisky, bourbon whiskey to be exact. Nice & sweet. Wood, vanilla, chocolate. Puckering whiskey. This gets your attention. Bravo.

Feel is smooth & creamy with a warm booze finish.

Well for a 13% rich barrel aged's good. 12 oz could even be shared with another.

This is a fantastic beer. Kudos to Goose Island. Try this beer.

Single 12 ounce of this was obtained in a trade with danielphoran. Big thanks to you for the sample. Pours a completely black coloration, with no heading what so ever. I still appreciate the color quite a bit. Aroma is clearly chocolate dominated, followed by dark fruits, brandy, and a bit of alcohol. It is a very sweet nose, which is perfect for this style. Big on chocolate cake in the flavor, with rum soaked raisins, cherry cordial, and a bit of...more chocolate cake I guess. Body I like because it is slick, but not too heavy. Also, the alcohol is not too in your face, which is again, perfect for this style. One is enough for me in one night, but it is definitely one that can be sipped over the course of an hour or two. This is a lovely stout. It reminds me a bit of Dogfish Head World Wide Stout, except better tasting, and not nearly as much alcohol. One to seek out for sure. Cheers

Thanks to shbobdb for the opportunity to indulge in this obvious monster beer.

12 ounce bottle: vigorous pour into a .4 liter chalice yields almost no head. Just a thin ring. Thick as maple syrup, dark and opaque as molasses.

Smell is oak, vanilla, chocolate malt, vinous woody tannins. There is a note of merlot. Cocoa powder smell has an interesting "dry" aroma - don't know how else to describe it. Hint of smoke.

Taste is wowowow. Boozy, bourbon, charred oak, burned sugar, burned chocolate. Long dry charred aftertaste, with plenty of smoke notes. I can see why they claim this is a good cigar beer. Lots of alcohol -- warming, sweet, sharp. The only bitterness is the toasted (or burned and smoked?) malt bitterness. Hops, if they are there, are totally sublimated to the intense smoky-char flavors. This is the most burned flavors I've ever experienced in a beverage.

Certainly this is an extremely thick and chewy beer. Syrupy, almost, it almost sticks to the inside of the mouth and under the tongue.

Drinkability? This thing is definitely a sipper, but what you sip is pretty good.

What can you say about a 13% beer with this much bourbon-barrel overtness? This beast is intense, and in your face. A smash-mouth charred malt bomb, exploding with burned sweet smoky flavors.

I poured this beer into a Kentucky Bourbon Ale snifter. The beer produced a jet black color and dark brown head. The head did not linger however, as the 13% ABV left only a few wisps across the top, and a broken ring around the edge. The aroma is full of dark roasted barley giving off chocolate and coffee flavors, vanilla and hints of coconut from the bourbon are present along with the light presence of the charred oak. Sipping the beer, and the massive amount of darkly roasted barley hits your first and then the bourbon comes in to take care of the rest. The first flavors to pound your tongue are chocolate and coffee and massive sweetness, but the bourbon balances this out with vanilla and enough charred oak to keep the sweetness in check. The beer is a full explosion of flavor, but everything has been put into balance incredibly well. The mouthfeel is as full bodied as they come, with enough carbonation present to bring the beers wonderful flavors to the forefront. A sipping beer for sure, but and idea digestif during colder months.

this was a 2007 vintage poured into a great divide snifter.

the beer poured the deepest black. not a hint of head. it still sticks to the side of my glass though.

the smell is bourbon, molasses, licorice, butterscotch, & chocolate. super duper complex.

the taste is exactly like the smell. super complex. SUPER BOURBON. i love it. without question, the tastiest goose island offering i have had.

the mouthfeel is full and velvety. great for the style.

let's not kid, this beer will kick your ass. the bourbon is the big show in this beer. if you don't like bourbon, don't try this beer. it's an evening sipper for sure. only rating it what i am as it's impossible to drink more than one of these and they are really better to split with a friend.

2006 Bottle.
Pours real nice and thick with no head whatsoever. Smell is incredible. Lots of roasted malts, coffee and chocolate, with some hints of bourbon/alcohol coming through as well.
This has a myriad of flavors going on in the taste. However, they're not blended together very well. It's one after another as they fight for the lead. The flavors are good, but not working well and complimenting as they should. Huge, creamy mouthfeel.

Update: 2007 batch.
This beer is incredible. Much more complex barrel flavor. Very good vanilla, bourbon and oak in the flavor. This batch is everything this beer needs to be. One of my favorite beers right now.

Bottle from Holdenn, The_Epeeist or drewbeerme. Thanks from all of you! <br>
'07 Bottle. Pours dark, dark black and oily with a short lived tan head in a snifter. Smell is bourbon, oak, then sweet roasty malt. A fair amount of bourbon in the nose, but not overwhelming. Taste is oily bourbon woodiness, then bittersweet chocolately roast. Balanced well, leaning towards a touch more bourbon than most bourbon beers I've had. Very light alcohol in the flavor for 13%, but a slight bit warming. Rich oily mouthfeel and light, but softly prickling carbonation. This is damn good.

pours very dark and about as viscous as anticipated. the carbonation is proper, and the head is robust. the smell is intoxicating. i imagine one could smell it from across the room. thick vanilla, sweet bourbon, milk chocolate, and perhaps a bit of oak dominate your nose. the taste doesn't disappoint, and is true to the smell. the smooth, silky, perhaps slightly creamy feel adds to the comforting flavor.

the flavor may be a bit strong for me to drink more than two of these in a sitting, but at 13%, i can't complain. this is a truly world class beer, and the definition of a 5.0 smell and taste.

A- Nice pour, the head was there, and then vanished quickly. A small ring of foam around the circumference of the glass. The beer is very dark and black as night.

S- The Bourbon smell is very present, dark with a slight anise smell.

T- The taste is very delicious. Carmel and buttery. The roasted malt character is very superb. The alcohol spice is there to tickle the tongue. Very good stout, I wish I had more then one bottle.

M- Very nice and smooth. The spice of the alcohol is very nice.

Pours an incredibly jet black color. Also with a thin tan head, that almost has a red hue to it. Looks like oil.
Very nice smell. Lots going on here. Smells of vanilla and smoke. Also a strong smell of alcohol and the bourbon barrels. Slight sweetness of caramel at the end as well.
Lots of taste to this beer. The first taste is of the alcohol and a bourbon tinge. Once the alcohol goes away there are great tastes of caramel, burnt malts, and a vanilla taste stays on the tongue.
Mouthfeel is very thin and smooth. Almost like the feel of a thin oil or something like that.
Drinkability is amazing for something that is 13% ABV. At the first taste of this beer, I was not a fan because I generally don't like the beers that taste like a hard alcohol. However, this beer is great when the alcohol taste cedes and the many flavors of the malts come to the forefront.

Bottle courtesy of DavidEddie. A karmic throw in of epic proportions!

12oz bottle 07 vintage, with bottle on date: 01207 Poured into a Brooklyn Brewery Snifter.

Pours ultra thick and jet black, no light penetrating at all. No head, only a faint oil patch lace. Pungent charred malt, dark chocolate, coffee, and bourbon soaked cherry aromas. Booze is there too, oh yeah. Taste of dark German chocolate cake drizzeled with a cherry bourbon sauce. Coffee, chocolate and warm boozy bourbon left on my tongue. Ultra warming, with a thick creamy coating mouthfeel. Cigar beer, desert beer, sit back and enjoy life beer. This is a world class sipper. Glad I still have one more of last years vintage in the cellar.

Huge thanks Dave for the chance to consider this again.
