A detailed aroma seeps into the nose with heavy barrel and dark stout scents: Roasted malts and charred barrel notes counter sweet vanilla and figs as smooth bourbon wafts tie the bouquet together. This viscous, chewy beer permeates every part of the tongue. Rich, dark chocolate pools with a cream flavor and cushions a hot wave of bourbon. Woody tannins and roasted malts poke at the sides of the tongue, as sweet coconut, vanilla and maple swirl in the back. This year’s Bourbon County will only improve with age, but its rich
beginning and lasting coconut finish make it excellent to drink today.
