Goose Island Beer Co. Anniversary Bourbon County Stout

What our panel thought
“If box-checking were an Olympic sport, this beer would stand on the podium. Base beer is rich in melanoidins—spirits-forward, with a touch of oak. Alcohol is loud, but there’s enough chocolate, brown sugar, and red fruits to make a stand.”
What our editors thought
“Crisp, sweet bourbon notes in the nose—big, boozy, with subtle apple and pear overtones. Incredibly smooth despite its intensity.”
