Beer 23 – Jefferson’s Reserve Bourbon Barrel Stout

Style: American Stout

Purchased at: Vintage Estate

What makes this beer different: Watery for a Barrel Stout

Will I be drinking this again: Probably not

Grade: B

12/2/2009: Thomas Jefferson is famous for being the primary author of the Declaration of Independence. One of the key entries states…

We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of consuming mass amounts of fermented beverages.

Okay that’s not what it said, but it should have because beer is proof God loves us, and I feel like we should have something in writing pertaining to that fact.

This beer was a little bit underwhelming for a Bourbon Barrel style beer. It lacks punch. A bit thin but still has a pretty good flavor to it. Has your typical Stout characteristics with a bourbon/hairspray kick? Not sure how to describe this weird flavor I am getting but its a little funky. Probably will avoid this one in the future.

Have you tried a similar beer that you think is better? Let me know in the comments section below!

  1. i like this shot. really there are over 365 kinds of beers or about that much. wow. i’m sure i can use this information on jeopardy. cool.

    • Oh yeah… there are probably more than 10,000 variations of beer out there

      Thanks for the compliment

  2. I’m not commenting on this particular entry, but I noticed that when you don’t like a beer, you give it a “B”. If you’re not likely to drink it again, wouldn’t it get a “C” or lower? Either way, great blog! I hope that you can keep the flow of brew steady!

    • I guess its because in my head, miller lite/bud light type beers are C’s to me.. while beers that are just outright undrinkable like Jacobs best and Camo are D and Fs…

      Overall I have not had any beer in the month so far that i would consider undrinkable.
