Default Bourbon County Stout

I got this in the Secret Santa trade. Chilled it and poured it into my Samuel Adams specialty glass. My initial impression on the pour was that this was going to be a sumptuous beer. If you can get a bottle of this, save it for a cold night. It warms you to the bone.

It started out around 45F and ended up around 65F over the 45 minutes it took me to drink it. The flavors opened up and really expressed themselves in different ways as it warmed.

This beer is absolutely delicious.

I totally agree with the above assessment. The flavors really opened up as it warmed. I also received this in a Christmas gift exchange in my homebrew club. What a fantastic treat! It was the 2013 bottled in November.



I would love to find a clone for this. They provide the ingredients on the web, but do not provide the proportions. I might have to play with this one.

BTW, the label comes off as a souvenir with hot water in the bottle and a little steam over boiling water. Gently apply a razor blade and it will peel off with little effort. I set it on a sheet of paper under a pane of glass with some weight on it.

Great beer. I received a four pack for Christmas. I'm sitting on two of them for a while.
