COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

Bottle to glass mug. Pours a completely opaque dark ruby / brown / black, and has a sparse dark tan head. Immediately, it smells like bourbon. It tastes like bourbon with some chocolate / coffee notes. Very dense. Very rich. Delicious.

kolsvart med stort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar och smakar mycket av fatlagringen bourbon , vanilj, kaffe och choklad. Fyllig med lagom beska. Det blir inte så mycket bättre!!

This lovely beer was vintage, 2014 KBS bestowed upon me by a close friend. Pour thick with a beige head, aromas of tobacco, tar, leather, chocolate, raisins, coffee and liquorice. Smooth taste. no lingering bitterness perfect end to a great evening. Drank at home

From a bottle. It's all been said already. If you're lucky enough to run across it get it no matter the price. This is most certainly true.

Pitch black color with small, creamy and long lasting brown head. Aroma of roasted malts with lots of vanilla and hint of bourbon. Flavour is multi-layered mixture of all with nice bourbon notes. Well balanced. Great , great beer just amazing stuff!

Doftar mörk choklad och espresso. Kraftig kropp med viss bitterhet. Kompenseras av balanserad sötma och viss alkohol.

Flaska från SB. Kolsvart med krämbrunt fluffigt skum. Syrlig och intensiv kaffe/espresso-ton i doften tillsammans med mjölkchoklad, bitter kakao, vanlij, toffee, tendens till chark, lite spritiga bourbontoner och inlagda körsbär. Stor, kompakt kropp. Oljig och absurt fyllig! Ordentligt värmande alkoholtoner. Stor beska ganska snabbt in i smakbilden. Rejält med kaffe i förgrunden. I bakgrunden pekannöt, vanilj, lönnsirap, lakrits, ekfat. Börjar oerhört bombastiskt för att sedan ge mer utrymme åt sträva och strama ekfatstoner och stor kaffebeska. Stor spritighet, men inte så det stör. Stor, komplex och skiftande smakbild som håller ihop snyggt, trots sin kraftfullhet. Välgjord.

McSherman (470) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 21, 2016
Kentucky Breakfast Stout von Founders. Das Bier zeigt sich fast schwarz mit einem bemerkenswert dunklen Schaum. Das Bier ist mit Kaffee und Schokolade gebraut und anschließend ein Jahr lang im Bourbon-Fass gelagert. Das verspricht eine tolle Aromenvielfalt und diese steigt dann auch nach dem Einschenken in die Nase: dunkles Malz, Schokolade, Espresso, Whisky, Holz, Vanille. Im Antrunk kommt kommt dann die volle Wucht dieser Aromen. Die 11% Alkohol und die dominanten Bourbon-Aromen lassen einen fast glauben, einen amerikanischen Whiskey oder zumindest einen Weinbrand im Mund zu haben. Ein echtes Erlebnis, aber ganz sicher nicht jedermanns Sache und erst recht kein Bier für Zwischendurch.

Flaska från SB. Oljig svart med smutsbrun skumkrona. Kraftig doft av choklad, tofe och kaffe. Söt kropp med lite besk avslutning. Smak av choklad, mörkrostat kaffe, nötcreme och sötlakrits.

For my 100th rating I could not choose something other than a 100 scoring beer. Purery black with a mocca head. Aroma is complex, yet roasted malt, vanilla, oak and coffee are easy to identify. Taste is powerful with strong coffee finish that slowly dissipates and let the alcohol through. The bourbon is also there. Fantastic beer! Really my kind of stuff.
