Epic pour of Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout 2017 in preparation to line up on Black Friday for the 2018 release.
Released Black Friday 2017🍁 It's cold out so bring on stout season! Brewed in honour of the 1000th batch at the original Clybourn brewpub.
ABV: 14.1% 60 IBU Bourbon Barrel Aged (150days) Imperial Stout.
Colour: Dark opaque black with a reddish orange halo with a thin quickly disappearing head. ⚫
Nose: Upon opening it was immediately engaging with of notes bitter dark chocolate, vanilla bean, burnt toffee and slight fermented wild cherry.
Mouthfeel: Thick & oh so syrupy.
First sip: Complex and flavour forward. Dark cacao with bourbon flavors and a slight KY hug. Slow sipping good times! 😏
Half way in: Barrel char and alittle bit of acidity like a dark chocolate bitterness, but overall a syrupy sweet pour. Burnt Toffees from the malt mingle with the bourbon barrel influence. Slight white coconut flesh present.
Running low now: Full body with soft to flat carbonation. Alcohol is soooo well hidden behind the malty cacoa notes. Creaminess thruout start to finish. For a stout it is surprisingly giving me that friendly Kentucky hug I love.🤗
Price: $20.00 500ml
Overall score: 9.65🌟
