Beer pick of the week: Goose Island Bourbon County Kentucky Fog Stout

It’s time for the seasonal releases of the Goose Island Bourbon County Stouts. This year, there’s an interesting addition to the line-up: Kentucky Fog Stout.” Our Bourbon County Kentucky Fog Stout is a take on the London Fog tea drink. With that flavor profile in mind, we added Earl Grey Tea and Black Tea from Kilogram Tea, as well as clover honey from The Honey House.” Hearing it’s very licorice-ish. 14.1%. You’ll either love it or hate it.
