Bourbon County Brand Special #4 is a double oatmeal Stout by style. Bourbon County Special #4 Stout is an oatmeal stout variant of our original Bourbon County Stout recipe, also aged in bourbon barrels, that uses crystal oats to add a nutty character and a smooth mouthfeel. After barrel aging, we added Intelligentsia Coffee, both their cold coffee and single origin coffee beans from Ethiopia, called “Metad Buku,” to bring out a pleasant fruity coffee character. Lastly bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup from Bissell Maple Farm in Ohio is added which provides complexity to the nutty oats and coffee to round out the flavors, ultimately reminiscent of your breakfast ‘special’ at the local diner. This craft beer is 13.3% ABV. In this craft beer review, we will take a look at the color, smell, and taste.

This craft beer is 14.6% ABV and 60 IBUs. In this craft beer review, we will take a look at the color, smell, and taste.
Bourbon County Brand Stout Vintage 2019 14.7% ABV is a Imperial Stout by style. This year’s Bourbon County Stout, aged in a mix of Heaven Hill, Buffalo Trace, and Wild Turkey barrels, yields a rich, complex mouthfeel.

On this episode Brandon and Tony sip and discuss this year's Goose Island Proprietor's Bourbon County Stout. "This year's Proprietor's Bourbon County Stout was inspired by third-generation Italian American brewer Emily Kosmal's love of spumoni, a classic Italian frozen treat. Spumoni is a tri-colored frozen dessert that contains candied fruit and nuts between each layer, historically including flavors such as pistachio, cherry and chocolate. Blended with fresh pistachios, cacao nibs, candied Amarena cherries, and natural vanilla flavors, the 2020 Proprietor's Bourbon County Stout is incredibly complex and layered with cocoa, nut, and dark fruit notes with hints of vanilla and oak. Emily, who also created the concept for 2016 Proprietor's, is our first brewer to have two Proprietor's concepts picked for release." Thanks to Kevin and Deb Goggin for the theme song.

Though there are no headline-grabbers like Double Barrel or Rare this year, the seven beer lineup is impressively consistent, even though our individual rankings are very divergent. Get the stories behind these beers (as relayed through us from the media tasting with the Goose team), and find out which one Craig calls a “throwback to Rare” and which one Ryan believes is the best of a particular type of variant that we’ve seen in ages.

This Black Friday marks our one year anniversary of not buying big beer. Specifically anything from Anheuser-Busch InBev. Last year we jumped on the Bourbon County Stout bandwagon and we weren't quite sure how we felt about it at the time. In this podcast, we talk about our stance on the topic while tasting a few great bottles from Independent PNW breweries that we'll be releasing on this upcoming Black Friday. Cheers!
