Enjoyed this at Hurricane Maggie's in MB, where the bartender told me slightly different story on the namesake. His claim being it came from the gentlemen who is the president of the local home brewers assoc. and that he came up with the recipe and New South just brewed it for them. Whatever the story, this is a pretty delicious beer. Hints of fruit up front mellowing into rich cocoa and coffee. Easy drinking for an 11%er.

Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #115. Draft at Brewvival. Pours a dark brown color with a thin brown head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, herbal hops, nutty notes. The taste is bitter chocoalte, roasted malts, bitter hop finish. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. I wrote "passable" for some reason.

Growler, from the brewery, thanks inlaws! Pitch black, small tan head. Nice subtle bourbon aroma , sweet, some roast as well . Taste features more bourbon , but nicely balanced with the substantial sweet stout behind it . Lots of oats, cereal, and roast, with a sweet slightly boozy finish . Not terribly complex, but just a solid solid beer . Nice treat!

Nice balanced imperial stout. Not boozy at all. The 68 IBUs leaves a nice clean and not sweet finish. Will be interested to see how this ages.
