Goose Island Unveils Highly-Anticipated 2023 Bourbon County Stout Collection | Food & Wine

An Explosion of Bourbon County Stout Varieties

If you’re a stout enthusiast, you’re probably familiar with Goose Island’s premium Bourbon County Stout lineup. Each year, the company persistently impresses us with an array of mouthwatering variants. This year, expect nothing less. Goose Island is back with the announcement of their 2023 Bourbon County Stout lineup, ensuring a taste adventure.

A Sneak Peek into the 2023 Arms

Naturally, the headliner of Goose Island’s 2023 lineup is going to be the great Bourbon County Brand Stout (BCBS). A beer so devastatingly well-crafted, it has become synonymous with quality in the vast sea of stouts. It’s a magical melding of flavors marked by robust notes of caramel, smoke, and vanilla all wrapped up in a warm bourbon hug. The inky-black stout is aged in bourbon barrels, infusing it with tannins and toasty oak characteristics for a complex, well-rounded sip.

The Range of Exquisite Variants

Bourbon County Café de Olla Stout

Having already made waves in years before, the Café de Olla Stout is making a much-anticipated return. Layering in additional flavors such as coffee, Cassia Bark, orange peel, and panela sugar, it’s an extraordinary riff on the classic BCBS. This variant, inspired by the traditional Mexican beverage, will surely call for a fiesta in your mouth.

Bourbon County Cherry Wood Stout

Joining the line-up as a newcomer is Cherry Wood Stout. This brew has been aged with staves of cherry wood. The wood not only gives the stout a beautiful reddish-black hue but also imparts a subtly sweet yet tart flavor from the cherries. Now, this is a drink that stout lovers are looking forward to with high hopes.

Bourbon County Coconut Stout

After the huge success of the Coconut variant in the past, Goose Island brings it back for 2023. Combining the toasted flavors of Bourbon County with a delicate hint of coconut, this variant offers an exotic taste, reminiscent of a tropical getaway.

Goose Island’s Craftsmanship Stands Out

The beauty of Goose Island’s Bourbon County series is not just in the crafting, but in the versatility of the recipes. They’ve managed to make a beer with flavours that are pronounced yet balanced, allowing the stout to shine. The way they harmonize ingredients is indeed extraordinary.

Mark Your Calendars!

The celebration of Bourbon County Stout release day, also fondly known as Black Friday, is nothing short of a beer lover’s national holiday. Come November 2023, expect long lines, beer trading, and a whole lot of stout-soaked cheer.

So, whether you’re a stout aficionado or just dipping your toes into the world of craft beer, the 2023 Goose Island’s Bourbon County line-up promises to be an exciting journey into complex and tantalizing flavors. Mark the month, and get ready to grab your bottles!
