Deep opaque black, slight brownish tinge. Almost nor head, slight tan. Sweet, I’d venture to say maple. Light vanilla, some amount of cinammon spiciness. Light roasted coffee notes. A touch of berry. A touch of bitterness, big sweetness. A good bit of alcohol upfront, quite heavy, decent amount of effervescence. Long finish. Really nice.

Généreuse portion dans mon goblet du EBF. Présentation visuelle réussie. Quel beau et riche nez de malts doux et rôtis, de café, de caramel et de chocolat avec une touche de vanille et un soupçon de cabane à sucre. Succulentes saveurs qui révèlent une incroyable profondeur: café, notes bien rôties, chocolat noir, vanille, caramel, réglisse, mélasse, pointe de bourbon et touche habile de sirop d’érable canadien. Beau corps aéré et texture très soyeuse. La finale offre une belle apparition chocolatée qui se mute en longue sensation rôtie. Copieuse création qui est trop facile à boire. En plein mon type de bière de soif.

Draft. Pours black with thin white head that clings to the edges. Rich chocolate maple aroma over thin carbonation. Superior mouthfeel, great bourbon booziness and sweet maple at the end. Heaven. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

I copied this from cyber cat cause they nailed it. Pours opaque coffee brown with a nice tan head. Rich aroma has firm notes of bourbon, coffee, molasses and toast malt plus a hint of chocolate. Flavor floods the palate with quality coffee, bourbon, chocolate, molasses, roast malt and oak. Mouthfeel is quite fizzy and firm, leaving a bourbon and chocolaty finish. I was lucky enough to get this on tap. I had five of them. . Unlimited CBS full pours. Amazing. It actually lived up to the hype. This was served at Secret Stash Bash 2015 in the ATL. The only beer that stood out at this beer festival. Paid 80 bucks. worth if for five full pours of CBS.

I finally found it. After waiting in line for a shitload of time after buying KBS, they had CBS! it tastes very similar to KBS, but more bitter, creamy, and thick.

Like drinking chocolate sauce pretty much. Very very similar to kbs but sweeter and thicker. I’m glad I finally got some of this.

Founders Brewery, Grand Rapids, MI, draft. Today is CBS release day. It's near hysteria. Can understand why. Impossibly smooth. Like a fine bourbon, but with soft bosoms instead of a harsh bite. Delicious. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
