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: JUN 24, 2020 Wayyyy overrated, this one. I actually like Breakfast Stout better than KBS. Congratulations, Universe, you win. Great stout but nothing special and little coffee. How can this compete with modern stouts like what Prairie puts out these days? Time for Founders to step up their stout game!

ziko303pl (94) - POLAND - JUN 20, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 20, 2020 Przeciętne. Aromat fajny, ale wychodzi alkohol co potwierdza się w smaku. Trochę wodniste.

jwil (33) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2020
UPDATED: JUN 13, 2020 Very dark brown in color, smells of vanilla, bourbon, and coffee hints. Deep flavor profile with similar flavors to that of the aroma. A strong stout and definitely imparts the intended liquor elements. I did drink it cold so not necessarily as intended, but still enjoyable. Relatively smooth considering the ABV of 12%. Not too harsh or bitter.

The Etruscan (794) - Tuscany, ITALY - MAY 24, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2020 Light brown weak head. Dark brown colour. Aroma is malty with coffee, licorice, vanilla and dark chocolate tones. Flavor is malty too with dark chocolate and licorice tones, ending in a smooth gently roasty and chocolaty finish. Full bodied.

nick76 (4429) - Tampa, Florida, USA - MAY 7, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2020 The aroma is strong with booze. It's barrel aging is obvious with plenty of coffee and dark malt. The appearance is dark brown with a tan head. The taste is like the aroma. The palate is smooth. This rating is dedicated to Bowden.

MeadTickers36 (99) - Athens, GREECE - MAY 7, 2020
UPDATED: MAY 7, 2020 Black with a beige head. Aroma of bourbon, roasted malts and vanilla. Kinda disappointed, I expected something more special. I've definitely had many better imperial stouts.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2020 2017 model, times r tuff during the Chinese Virus lockdown! I found this exquisite beverage @ the back of my fridge! Pours a dirty motor oil dark brown color with a hugggggeeee fluffy tan head that lingers leaving lace all over glass. Smells of excellent coffee, licorice, wood, earth, brown sugar, whiskey and a hint of alcohol. Tastes of chocolate, coffee, molasses, malted milk balls, bourbon, wood, (not that kind of wood), vanilla & alcohol. Ginormous body, tingling carbonation, thick, luscious mouthfeel and a coating, warm, bold finish. IDK what to say? Maybe the best stout in the planet? I could tell u more about this beer but I don’t have the skills to dissect the complexity of the KBS! This is way out of my league! Phenomenal! Exquisite! Unbelievable! Outstanding! All right, gotta change the H2O pump on the Bronco! #Merica! 💥!

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2020 Birra color mogano intenso con morbida schiuma colore cappuccino. Alla bevuta è molto complessa, caffè espresso, vaniglia, cioccolato fondente, caramello...il tutto con un corpo caldo e pieno.
