Beer Review #12: Goose Island Bourbon County Stout

23 Dec

Menu description: Strong bourbon, hint of caramel, smooth sweetness.

ABV: 15%

My thoughts: Holy balls, 15%! That’s shenanigans! Son of a bitch even smells like bourbon! OMG it tastes like bourbon! WTF I think I just got drunk from the first sip. Despite the fact that it apparently doesn’t want me to have a liver, it’s quite good. It’s kind of thick, but the flavor is unbelievable. It is way strong though. I feel like this is what hard liquor would taste like if it was beer. In all seriousness, this is a really good beer. Apparently on Beer Advocate it has a perfect score. I can see why! It’s super smooth and very flavorful. It’s almost got a sort of sweet/tart thing going. It’s pricey @ 15/glass, but worth every penny.

Number of times I’ve had it: 4

Rating: 5/5
