I love the bourbon county brand series. The start of it right here. I tried the 2015 version. Amazing oak aromas. Great carbonation from the bottle creating an off white head. Better than the coffee version to me. Not as difficult to find as well. Great bourbon notes from the aging. Definitely worth a try. In my top 20 for sure.

This is a smooth, easy going stout with beautiful bourbon notes and a delicious roasted malt character that lives up to all the hype and then some.

Poured hard into a snifter, leaving about three fingers worth of head. Appearance is black as night without any light coming through the edges. Smell and taste are heat/booze, bourbon, vanilla, dark chocolate, and some coffee notes in there as well. Very thick and lush mouth feel. A tried-and-true example of this style.

A solid Imperial Stout from Goose Island. I had this as part of a Goose Island flight sampler. Dark and boozy goodness in a glass. Top notch in my book.

as far as Bourbon aged stouts go, this is the king. outrageously complex beer that gets better the further down the bottle you go. Also still manages to improve with aging. simply put, this beer is a benchmark.

# update.bought 4 2015's and 3 were infected.....tart and fruity tasting.a complete disgrace and embarrassment considering what they cost. Goose Island should be ashamed considering they haven't admitted or acknowledged a fault with the regulars.
