Bourbon County Brand Stout

I knew this was going to be huge, and I was not disappointed. Inky black pour with a small tinge of cognac brown in a ring at the top of the pour after the dark tan head has disappeared.
The smell and the taste are quite exceptional. Layer after layer of bourbon, alcohol, vanilla, cream, chocolate and sugar. Amazingly complex and complete. Despite all of this, the beer is still exceptionally drinkable – by that I mean it is massive, but everything blends together perfectly to make you want to keep picking up the glass.
Mouthfeel is coating and luxurious. It definitely lacks the bitterness of a typical stout and drinks more like liquor!
Once I had finished my 12 oz bottle all I wanted was a great big glass of water to clean the palate, but the contrast perfectly framed this massive beer.
