Goose Island is releasing 2013 Bourbon County across the United States on Black Friday, November 29th, 2013! Â Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout ABV: 14.5%. Brewed in honor of the 1000th batch at the original Clybourn brewpub. A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with thick foam the color of a bourbon barrel. The nose is an intense mix of charred oak, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and smoke. One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer.
Goose Island Bourbon County BarleywineÂ ABV: 12.1%. Aged in the third-use barrels that were once home to Kentucky bourbon and thenÂ the renowned Bourbon County Stout, this traditional English-style barleywine possesses the subtlety of flavor that only comes from a barrel thatâ€™s gone through many seasons of ritual care. The intricacies of the previous barrel denizens â€“ oak, charcoal, hints of tobacco and vanilla, and that signature bourbon heat â€“ are all present in this beer. Hearty and complex, Bourbon County Brand Barleywine is a titan and a timeline; a bold, flavorful journey through the craft of barrel aging.
Everyday Goose Island smells the wonderful coffee roasting next toÂ the brewery at Chicago’s Intelligentsia Coffee and Tea. This world class roaster puts the same passion and skill into their coffee as Goose Island does with its beer. This excellent stout is made with a different coffee from their friends next door each year. With the change in coffee comes a change in the flavor profile, making each release truly unique from the previous years.
