Goose Island Bourbon County Stout

(1/3) > >>

Tired this last weekend. Thought it was pretty good. Wish I would have saved some to age, it was just to darn good to save.

I really liked the sweet vanilla and chocolate mixed with the bourbon flavor. I didn't get much oak, but my batch was from 2009 so it could have needed a bit more time.

What are you guy's thoughts?

I did a full review with a friend on my blog if your curious and want to see the beer.

Review of Goose Island Bourbon County Stout

Love to hear your take on it!

I like the beer, but not the price.  I have tried it at a couple of beer events and found it nice with a good bourbon character... but there's something about $22 a six pack. 

I've bought this beer a couple of times in the 22 oz bottle. Very tasty. the bourbon/vanilla flavors really come out after it warms up a bit about 15 minutes out of the fridge.

I have come to like this beer as it's been adjusted/improved over the years.  I don't usually buy it in stores though.  Instead, I get my fill during events or sometimes at bars.

I love this beer. It is in my top five for sure.

My favorite part is how much better this beer tastes after a few years. I've only got one 12 of the 08 left and I'm sad about that. Its an amazing beer. The difference one year makes is remarkable, it really smooths it out.
