Bourbon County 2013

Beer nerds flare up like an excited swarm of hornets when this beer bomb gets dropped each year. They're also quick to sting over the controversial selling out of Goose Island to Anheuser Busch. I'm not here to talk about that crap though. Bourbon County is one hell of a beer and another entry into The League of Extraordinary Stouts. This bomb dropped yesterday and it's drinking great fresh in my opinion.  A tad under last years strength, this years 14.2% will hold up for a while if you to choose to hang onto it or not, as it says right on the bottle that this beer will develop over the next 5 years. 
Black as night, thick as molasses and rich like a chocolate lava cake. Stout lovers rejoice.
