Goose Island 2017 Bourbon County Brand Stout

#2 Top 25 beers 2017
Return to List

This vintage-dated selection is one of the most anticipated annual beer releases, with throngs of beer lovers lining up the day after Thanksgiving to try and get their share. The 2017 bottling is a doozy, oozing with rich, decadent aromas and flavors of chocolate sauce, charred oak, booze-soaked raisins and berries. It's warm and inviting, with a deceptive smoothness that keeps you coming back for more despite its power and intensity. It's a beer that many won't be able to resist cracking open, but if you do manage to score a few, definitely tuck a couple away, as it will continue to harmonize and evolve magically with some years of cellaring.
