COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is the real McCoy. Barrel aged and crammed with coffee, none other will stand in itís way. Sought out for being delicious, it is notoriously difficult to track down. If you can find one, shoot to kill, because it is definitely wanted... dead or alive.

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2013 As soon as I cracked this cap, the room was filled with luscious bourbon, roasted malts; caramel; and impressively pungent, high end coffee. Jesus, this smells amazing.

Taste follows suit: roasty initially before bourbon and coffee interrupt everything and take center stage. Impeccably rounded overall profile. Rivals the very best stouts Iíve ever tasted. World class status is merely implied after the first sip.

And Kentucky Brunchís body coats the mouth unlike almost anything else Iíve tasted. The Pegís stouts are its only peers in this category.

Holy moly, this is better than Morniní Delight... and that isnít said lightly. Toppling Goliath killed it. Again.

Update: So itís been a week, and Iíve decided to upgrade my rating to a perfect 5. I previously gave it 4/5 on appearance (which is incorrect upon looking at my picture of it afterwards; was trying to be overly picky at the time) and 19/20 for a total of 4.8. However, Iíve been thinking about this nonstop for the last week and feel comfortable saying that KBBS is a perfect beer. Itís arguably the best brew Iíve ever smelled, tasted, and enjoyed on the palate, and that makes it a 5. Hats off to the TG guys: Kentucky Brunch truly is a masterpiece.

Bottle 84 of 300. Shared with my beer buddy daknole, yes that daknole :-). If there was a perfect barrel aged stout it would be this. Unbelievably complex. Coffee, vanilla, maple, oh my. Top 2 or 3 stouts all time.

I wasnít a big fan of Morning Delight. Its a good enough beer, but like fudge, there is only so much you can consume before it is overwhelming. Throw that in a barrel however, and something magical happens. All of the big coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and maple syrup flavors that MD has, but the whiskey addition cuts the intense sweetness and rounds everything out. Amazing beer. For sure one of the best imperial stouts Iíve ever had.

12 oz bottle shared by Huhzubendah, many thanks Matt! Pours a deep dark brown/near black with hues of ruby on the edge when not backlit. Aroma is rich and complex: roasted malts, cocoa, dark fruits, bittersweet chocolate syrup, and coffee notes. Flavor is massive and delicious - roast, malt, chocolate, mild anise, cocoa, coffee, syrupy sweetness, oak, vanilla, and perfection. Mouthfeel is thick and syrupy, similar to MF of Triple Bock. A world class outstanding beer.

Huhzubendah (2944) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Served alongside Morniní Delight and Assassin. The beer is near black with a filmy beige head. All hype and bias aside, this aroma is silly good. Oak, roast, coffee, vanilla. World class from the first sip. The definition of grace and balance. Silky smooth on the palate. Absolutely amazing.

Syndicate (111) - Idaho, USA - DEC 13, 2014
Thanks to Shane for this. 12oz bottle gold wax. Maybe the most legit beer Iíve ever had. Pours out a standard jet black, thin dark brown head that disappeared pretty quickly. Nose is sweet malt, some light spice. Flavor is amazing, maple syrup, dark chocolate, coffee is subdued but there. I canít put into words how good it is. Maybe top three beer if not number 1.

kermis (6844) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - JAN 2, 2015
Bottle shared at The Hague New Year Whale Session. Pours black with a small thick brown head. Massive aroma as soon as the bottle is popped with roast, big molasses, bourbon, woody barrel notes, vanilla, fudge, milk chocolate and light coffee notes. Flavour is heavy sweet and bitter. In the palate itís like a box of milk chocolates with fudge and a glass of pappy on the side. Simply mind blowing. The mouthfeel is thick and oily, warming, soft, incredible. Full bodied with soft carbonation. It lives up to hype. Surely a stout cannot get any better.

Sample at the TG tap room. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, bourbon, with hints of vanilla. Flavor is pure silk liquid goodness.
