GOOSE ISLAND BOURBON COUNTY SPECIAL #4
Bourbon County Special #4 Stout is an oatmeal stout variant of our original Bourbon County Stout recipe (also aged in bourbon barrels) that uses crystal oats to add a nutty character and a smooth mouthfeel. After barrel aging, we add Intelligentsia Coffee—both their cold coffee and single origin coffee beans from Ethiopia (called 'Metad Buku'). This results in a pleasant fruity coffee character. Lastly, bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup from Bissell Maple Farm in Ohio is added which provides complexity to the nutty oats and coffee to round out the flavors and ultimately be reminiscent of your breakfast 'special' at the local diner.
