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.

Zilverenmaan (618) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 13, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2019 Bottle from Total wine Worcester, MA. Pours oily, somewhat milky, ink black with dark chocolate head, surprisingly big for a barrel aged beer. Aroma, chocolate, vanilla, impression of lactose too however, lotsof bourbon, somewhat vinous, gently burnt underneath. Very good but lacks true depth. Taste a bit more impressive even though the barrel aging seems less obvious: rich, creamy, good roast, dense, chewable, well balanced, albeit a bit too sweet for my taste, soft, alcohol well hidden. MF very dense and softly astringent. Very good, very tasty, lacks a bit of finesse because it's too sweet and crude, a highly acclaimed brew that consequently makes me appreciate some of my own little Belgium's brews even more. Sugar... makes my arteries clogged up with cholesterol, eats my teeth and messes up my beers. I can live with heart attacks and cavities but... Maybe I should have appreciated their regular breakfast stout more.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2019 WAY overhyped and WAY WAY overpriced, Kentucky Breakfast Stout from Founders is the Poster Beer for exactly what is wrong with the hipster-driven corporatification of the craft brew movement.

UriahHeep (188) - Georgia, USA - JUL 7, 2019
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2019 Jet black pour, dark brown head. Strong espresso coffee bean aroma. Brown sugar, molasses, cocoa and chocolate. Intense burnt coffee grind palate. Velvety smooth, warm alcohol finish. If you find this one out in the wild it's well worth the pickup. Close to a perfect imperial stout.

maledictum (851) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - JUN 30, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2019 Pour is dark mahogany with a dark tan head. Aroma malts and whiskey. A thick and rich stout with tons of chocolate, coffee and whiskey flavors.

ruslansavostin (40) - Khabarovsk, RUSSIA - JUN 22, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2019 Kentucky Breakfast Stout выпуска 2018, думаю всем все понятно и писать ни чего не нужно. Очередной респект пивоварам из Мичигана за отличный напиток, по сравнительно невысокой цене.

Pshowell (8) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2019 Bier Haus, New Glarus, WI. Almost black in appearance. Dark bronze head. Effervescent. Very rich, complex flavors. Heavy, dark chocolate flavor...like chocolate flourless torte in a bottle. Hint of bourbon. Dry, but mildly sweet. Very rich. Best at room temperature. Multiple bottles tried. Slight differences bottle-to-bottle.

DonPapi (3) - North Miami, Florida, USA - JUN 9, 2019 does not count
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2019 2019, 12.2% (ouch!) Pours black as night, not a hint of transparency. Minimal head and lacing, maybe should have poured harder. Super rich, complex, strong bourbon, but almost dizzyingly complex, so many flavors competing for your attention, vanilla, coffee, dark chocolate; nose is sweet candy, toffee; body is viscous and slightly boozy but alcohol is still very subtle for such a monster, very smooth and warming; lingering bourbon tail lasts for a long, long time. Exceptional, but too rich to make a daily drinker.

4.1
PowY (2522) - Vienna, AUSTRIA - JUN 9, 2019
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2019 375 ml bottle at home, 2016 release. Pours a very dark brown with a tan colored head. Aroma of mild bourbon, toffee, chocolate, soy sauce, some cocoa, some sweetened coffee, hints of vanilla. Full creamy body with a medium sweetness and a light to medium roasty bitterness along hints of alcohol. The flavor starts with bourbon, burnt chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toffee, tobacco, burnt wood, caramel and nuts. Finishes with a medium roasty bitterness, mild bourbon and light burnt notes. Pretty good - the roasted malt are pretty dominant with quiet some burnt notes while the bourbon barrel is more in a complementary role. Aroma: 8 Appearance: 4 Taste: 8 Mouthfeel: 4 Overall: 17
