Bourbon County Brand Coffee Stout 2017
BREWER'S NOTES

Everyday Goose Island smells the wonderful coffee roasting next to our brewery at Chicago's Intelligentsia Coffee. This world class roaster puts the same passion and skill into their coffee as Goose Island does with its beer. This excellent stout is made with a different coffee from our friends next door each year. With the change in coffee comes a change in the flavor profile, making each release truly unique from the previous years.


 

This year, Goose Island went back to the original bean use, Black Cat Espresso.  This year’s BCBS Coffee variant will have robust coffee notes that balance perfectly with the big Imperial Stout and bourbon barrel character.
