#12BeersOfXmas Day 6 - Goose Island Bourbon County (2012)

Holy fucking shit. It's Christmas day and I'm doing le writing. Cool.

Yeah, I've just had dinner and been drinking since about 10:30am. I've had a lot of beer and now it's time to review the one I'm most looking forward to... the 15% motherfucker that is Goose Island Bourbon County Brand Stout (2012).

The Beer O'Clock Show guy Steve and some other chaps & chapettes are doing Magic Rock Strongman today, but I didn't have any of that and thought this was appropriate. That rebel Connor Murphy has decided to join my splinter cell to drink this too...

So... what the fuck is it like?

The aroma gives you the purest, most goddamn bitter dark chocolate and coffee. My god, it's fucking incredible.

Then you fucking taste it. Oh Jesus. Fresh brewed coffee, bitter dark chocolate, a few hops, bourbon and a sweet, creamy finish.

The mouthfeel is thick as fuck, like a friji milkshake, as you'd expect from a 15% beast, but it's also kinda dry.

Overall? Jesus fuck. This is a motherfucker of a beer. I'm in love. Seriously. I've wanted to try this for so long and it delivers on every goddamn level. I WANT MORE IMMEDIATELY (although that may not be wise).

Merry fucking Christmas, bitches!

Nate!
