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.

Definitely a high quality stout. The bourbon barrel really comes through, more so than any other barrel aged stout I’ve had. Great beer but doesn’t blow me away like a BCBS. More than worth the $5 price tag.

Dégustée sur la terrasse en compagnie de Ju-Lo. Merci pour le partage mon vieux! À peine décapsulée, la bouteille laisse échapper des arômes qui en un instant ont entièrement envahie la terrasse! Le bouquet olfactif de cette bière est absolument fabuleux: chocolat noir, pain grillé, un bourbon chaud et caramélisé, du bois... Suis-je en train de devenir fou? Oui et tant mieux! Plus je m’attarde à ces arômes parfaites, plus j’y perçois de la pâtisserie. En me fermant les yeux, je respire les effluves d’un magnifique gâteau aux framboises à la crème pâtissière et aux marshmallows. C’est absolument fabuleux! La magnifique complexité de ce nectar diminue de quelques crans en bouche. En effet, les saveurs sont moins élaborées que les arômes. Sur mon palais coule un magnifique liquide chocolaté aux subtiles saveurs de bourbon chaud du Kentucky, de mélasse et de réglisse rouge. La délicieuse amertume laissée en fin de bouche est celle d’un grand chocolat belge! Irréprochable texture soyeuse et souple, moins riche toutefois que l’impériale stout de la même brasserie; le vieillissement en barriques de bois ayant aminci la texture de ce magnifique breuvage. Je suis émerveillé et sans voix.

Pours black with an average, lacing tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, coffe, chocolate, anilla and bourbon. Sweet flavor that ends up dry and slightly bitter. Full to medium bodied, oily to creamy texture and soft carbonation.

Last beer of the night at Rich’s Cellar Emptying Tasting. Kbs stout 11.2% Inky deep black pour with a coffee light bourbon nose. Young bottle meaning the bookings is full on black coffee, maple syrup and light bourbon. The booze is a bit harsh. Overall it is quite nice but has a bit too much heat.

Deep black colour. The smell is dominated by alcohol. The taste is great with lots of chocolate and caramel spiced up with tons of bourbon

shoulderbroken (2850) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 16, 2015
Bottle from Mother Kellys. Aroma is milky chocolate, roast, coconut, bourbon, booze. Taste is good, all the above. Finish is bourbon, but smooth fade. Rest of the flavours are quite subdued. Rich finish, almost fruity. Touch of chocolate. Can’t really get the coffee. Very easy drinking and hides the booze well.
