From Trion’s Facebook page:
LATE NITE UPDATE!!!….Now on tap: Goose Island Bourbon County! This beer is RARE in bottles, let alone draft….come and get it because this will go fast. (97 on BeerAdvocate, 100 on RateBeer)
Style: Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout, ABV…: 14.5%, IBUs: 60
Brewed in honor of the 1000th batch at the original Clybourn brewpub. A liquid as dark and dense as a black hole with thick foam the color of a bourbon barrel. The nose is an intense mix of charred oak, chocolate, vanilla, caramel and smoke. One sip has more flavor than your average case of beer.
