The tradition continues in this Episode of DJs BrewTube where I review Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout ►2015◀︎. Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout ►2015◀︎is a Russian Imperial Stout that clocks in at, 13.8% ABV. I am big fan of RISs and I have had a great deal of affinity toward this beer in past reviews. Goose Island describes Bourbon County Brand Stout ►2015◀︎ as follows:
"Brewed in honor of the 1000th batch at our original Clybourn brewpub. Goose Island could have thrown a party. But we did something better. We brewed a beer. A really big batch of stout-so big the malt was coming out of the top of the mash tun. After fermentation we brought in some bourbon barrels to age the stout. One hundred and fifty days later, Bourbon County Stout was born-A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with a thick foam the color of bourbon barrels. The nose is a mix of charred oak, vanilla, carmel and smoke. One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer. It overpowers anything in the room. People have even said that it’s a great cigar beer, but I haven’t yet tried a cigar that would stand up to it." Brewmaster Greg Hall.."
This description really sounds quite tasty. Lets see Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout ►2015◀︎ lives up to its description. Hope you enjoy the video, my written review and report card follows:
Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout ►2015◀︎ (BCBS) REVIEW:
A: Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout pours totally opaque black with a thin, quickly dissipating mocha colored head. Not much lacing or head retention but huge alcohol curtains cling tenaciously to the inside of the glass when this viscous liquid is swirled.
S: Bourbon, charred wood, toffee, tobacco, BIG rich dark fruits, vanilla and alcohol. Very complex aroma that changes / develops as the brew warms.
T: Bourbon, sweet malt, vanilla, wood, tobacco, leather, caramelized raisins and not as much alcohol and bourbon compared to the nose. Chocolate and coffee. The rich malt clings to your tongue for a while after your swallow the viscous black elixir.
M: Viscous & chewy, mild carbonation. For a 14.3% beer the alcohol is very well hidden, but this is definitely a sipper.
O - Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout 2015 is one of the best barrel aged Imperial Stout I have had. I will drink this again and recommend it to anyone who is into barrel aged beers as a bucket list level beer. Even after three year reviewing this beer in a row I still love what this beer has to offer.
