BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Avery Brewing Company
Colorado, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 14.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Jacob Spears, our 6th Great Grand Uncle, is credited as the first distiller to label his whiskey “Bourbon.” He built his distillery in Bourbon County Kentucky in 1790 — 203 years before we began brewing. While obviously a bit too late to produce Uncle Jacob’s wash, we’ve instead created something far more complex. In his honor, we present this robust, silky smooth, full-bodied and altogether extremely American rendition of an Imperial Stout aged for 6 months in the very finest Bourbon barrels. This explains a lot about our penchant for big brews! It’s in our blood!

I will let the other geniuses rate this stuff by all of the nose and taste criteria. The bottom line is that this is great shit! Better than Bourbon County by far! If you haven't found it yet, you are missing one of the finest stouts known to man! No way can you taste 16.9% ABV in this beer. Sells retail for about 13 bucks and you can find it in bars for about $18.00. Pull the trigger my friends, it is well worth it! You get the nicest little buzz on only one 12 oz bottle.

Had this on tap at Avery Brewery in Boulder and can't imagine a more rich and flavorful stout. On par and perhaps better than Goose Island Bourbon County Stout
