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.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2010 Bottle graciously shared by awisman01. Wow, first whiff is tons of coffee. Kinda makes it hard to pick out anything else. Some darker wooden notes ermerge with time. Pours coffee black with a quickly fading medium tan head. Coffee is less intense on the tongue with chocolate coming out and some sweet bourbon character to finish it off. Thick and full mouthfeel with a slightly bitter finish. Very nice bourbon barrel style and at 11.2, sipping is more than just a suggestion.

Bottle tasting at work. I had the sublime pleasure of tasting BS and KBS right next to each other... what a treat! The Kentucky Breakfast Stout has a wonderful flavor profile with a palate that shows where it has grown up compaired to it’s younger brother. The head is a wonderful amber brown with amazing retention and the aroma fills the nose with roasted coffee, dark chocolate, caramel, and a wonderfully subtle blend of bourbon whisky with the expected accompanying vanilla and charred oak. An amazing product that shows the growth from BS with a near perfect palate, and a more rounded flavor profile. The bourbon is blended so subtly and so perfectly that I’m finding it hard to find many flaws. BS is a MUST try, but wait untill you get ahold of a KBS!

HUUUGE coffee nose when poured cold. Super dark brown leaving no head, but a nice few bubbles around the edges. Just enough alcohol to be awesome, but not overpowering the other flavors. As expected, the flavors really come up a notch as it warms. Really good stuff if you like the coffee flavors.

Bottle. 2010 batch. Pour was black, with small brown head. Upfront taste of oak, followed by a very nice balance of coffee, bourbon, vanilla, and chocolate. Very thick on the tongue, chewy, with a slight burn from the alcohol. A slight sweet taste, but after the swallow, a tad bitter. This is an amazing brew. After finishing my first, I had to have another. But at $5 a 12oz two was enough for tonight.

WOW!!!!! by far the best stout I have ever had and I am a huge stout fan. First off the smell almost as complex as the taste. You can smell bourbon, vanilla and cappucino. Second the appearance was second to none. Pour out like motor oil with a think dark tan head. Third the taste was very complex. There was choolate, vanilla, bourbon, coffee and a twinge of oakiness. All of it was blended masterfully. This is a must try if you ever get a chance to get your hands on it.

12oz bottle into a snifter had an oil black pour. Practically no head, giggled in the glass. Cocoa and oak tones in the aroma. Fantastic flavor with a coffee roasty taste and a great bourbon singe in the aftertaste. Great w/ vanilla ice cream!

Wow! This stout spans the board of flavors. Very complex, smooth and dark with a lacy head. Noticeable bourbon that mellows as it warms. Leaves a dark tan resin on the glass that looks as though brandy had been drank out of it. All the great flavors of chocolate, coffee, oats, and vanilla that flow throughout its oaky finish. Slightly reminicant of the Backwoods Bastard; a truely awesome stout.

12 oz. bottle to snifter. Aroma is rich oaky burbon with coco. Appearance is oil like black with minimal head with sticky lacing. Taste is rich oak and coco with burbon and spice. Palate is full rich and somewhat fizzy with a warm swallow. Another one in the books, these guys just can’t do bad!

I really don’t think I have to say much about this. This is just freaking delicious. Coffee, Vanilla, Bourbon, what more could you want in life?

UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Very delicious imperial stout. Pours a dark black color with a caramel colored head. Has an aroma of bourbon with hints of coffee, vanilla, and malt. The alcohol comes through on the smell and taste. This stout has it all sweet and malty on the front, bitter and biting alcohol on the back. Thin mouthfeel. Notes of vanilla and coffee which linger on the tongue through the finish. This is most definitely a snifter worthy stout. October 19, 2011 - had a 2011 bottle celebrating the birth of my son. I think this brew really starts to hit its stride 6 months after the release. 2010 Bottle on November 20, 2010. This is drinking even better now. The beer has mellowed perfectly, perhaps a bit more creamy. Dec. 16, 2010, a growler fill from Bowery Beer Room. 7-8 months and this brew is really good. The coffee bite and booziness mellow, and the creaminess kicks up. I am tasting more chocolate than I did a month ago.
