Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout
From Goose Island – Everyday Goose Island smells the wonderful coffee roasting next to our brewery at Chicago’s Intelligentsia Coffee and Tea. They put the same passion and skill into their coffee as Goose Island does with its beer. This excellent stout is made with Black Cat Espresso beans from our friends next door. You’ll like the combination.
Goose Island Brewing – Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout – 22 oz. bottle poured into a goblet. 13% abv. From DarkLord 2010 tasting.
Appearance: Pours a dark brown with a reddish hue.
Aroma: Prepared coffee, milk chocolate and vanilla.
Taste: Spent coffee, prepared coffee, spicy hops and booze.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, spicy hot, a bit separated.
Overall: Not nearly as good as original Bourbon County Stout. I will say, the alcohol is masked by the coffee, which is interesting and potentially dangerous!
