Notes: 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.

An interesting experiment, and one that fans of BCBS should love. Cuts the BCBS heat a little, dulls the vanilla that's usually present (especially 2014 BCBS), and replaces it with a more chocolatey version of the beer. Nice amount of hoppiness too, although I picked that up on the second day drinking this, so who knows. There's a tiny hint of something funky (which I assume is the fungus on the barrels) on the finish. Thanks to Beerlistman for setting this one up!

This is mini-Rare. Not quite as smooth or as warming, but still a clear cut above BCBS and up there with some of those perfectly aged 2008 & 2009 BCBS.
