Proprietor’s Bourbon County Brand Stout is meant to show our immense gratitude to our neighbors here in Chicago – the loyal and adventurous fans whose support helped bring Bourbon County Brand Stout to towering new heights. Each year this release will differ from the previous year; a special variant created for Chicago and unique to the year it was released. Whether your first sip is today or was from that first batch in 1992, thank you for lifting us up on your big shoulders and joining us every year to celebrate the original bourbon barrel aged stout.

This year’s Proprietor’s explores the broad spectrum of chocolate. Using a combination of dark chocolate and two types of cocoa nibs, this rich and decadent beer highlights the whole range of chocolate from smooth and silky milk chocolate flavors to deep and earthy dark chocolate.

Bottle, traded for this one last year. haven't had it yet. Split 4 ways at fridge temp. oily black with reddish edges. smells like a dark chocolate milk & cookies. Tasty Prop! lots of chocolate (too much?) nice vanilla and bourbon notes. Sweet, boozy, good finish. bits of Oreo flavor.

Yes, chocolate. Super rich and smooth, sweet but not too much, and lots of chocolatey goodness. Plenty bourbon, dangerously drinkable. They wanted chocolate, they got it for sure. Very intense, a true dessert beer.
