COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial Stout brewed with Chocolate and Coffee, aged in Maple Syrup-Bourbon Barrels.

CBS was born when we stumbled upon some bourbon barrels that had previously housed maple syrup. We opted to put the same base beer as KBS, an imperialized version of Breakfast Stout, in the maple barrels and, after one taste, we knew we had something special. Rich maple syrup, roasted coffee and velvety chocolate meld together in what can only be described as a transcendental drinking experience.

Backstage Series #2: 10.6% ABV
Barrel-Aged Series (2017): 11.7% ABV Barrel-Aged Series (2018): 11.6% ABV

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2021 Black with a creamy tan head. Aroma of coffee and chocolate. Notes of vanilla, molasses, maple and brown sugar. A touch boozy but still very smooth.

gripweed57 (5152) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 26, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 26, 2021 750 ml bottle. Vintage 2017. Procured from Bottle King in East Windsor, NJ in 2017. Rating number 5,000! Opaque black pour. Small creamy tan cap. Earthy roasted malt aroma has notes of bourbon and treacle. Right out of the gate, a rush of warming alcohol buoys big notes of bittersweet chocolate, bourbon, maple syrup, oak and espresso. Silky mouthfeel makes you sip and savor this like you're taking tiny bites of the most indulgent chocolate mousse. Luxurious to say the least. Impeccably crafted and truly worthy of saving for my 5,000th beer rating.

Miły (661) - Kielce, POLAND - MAR 19, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 19, 2021 Release 2019. Bottled on: 10.04.19 r. Wypite: 19.03.21 r. Wygląd: Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta. Piana brązowa, średniej wysokości, głównie drobnopęcherzykowa, opada do małego pierścienia, pozostawia lekki lacing. Podczas nalewania i przy zamieszaniu szkłem zauważalna gęsta faktura. Aromat: Przyjemny, złożony, średnio lotny. Przed szereg wysuwa się bourbonowa beczka - bourbon, dębina, lekka wanilia na średnim poziomie. Beczka wsparta gorzką czekoladą, kakaem, kawą, melasą, ciemnym pieczywem oraz syropem klonowym, toffi i lekkim karmelem. Smak: Średnio intensywny, mniej złożony niż aromat, odrobinę pusty i cukrowy. Na średnioniskim poziomie lekko rozwodniony syrop klonowy, brązowy cukier, ciemne pieczywo, toffi, karmel, czekolada, kakao i nuty kawy uzupełnione bourbonowym alkoholem oraz akcentami dębiny i wanilii. W ustach słodkie, treściwość średnioniska, zaskakująco zwiewna, wysycenie niskie. Goryczka niska, gorzkiej czekolady i alkoholu, krótka. Finisz słodki, lekkiej gorzkiej czekolady z bourbonem, kakao i nutą kawy.

hauxe (2723) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - MAR 5, 2021
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2021 Bottle thanks to wombat23 and darbeer75. A toast to the good ole days when meeting up and trading such things was possible. Black with a dirty, beige head. Aroma of maple syrup over coffee grounds with roasted grains in the background. Taste is sweet up front with dark chocolate and some mild roasted bitterness at the finish. Afterwards, lingering maple syrup. Big, full body, mild carbonation, sticky with decent chewiness. Overall, very nice balance and sweet, but not overly so. Great.

BubbleHopper65 (9) - - FEB 22, 2021 does not count
UPDATED: FEB 22, 2021 We had this for dessert, fitting since it is rich in chocolate with coffe and bourbon

Barrelmaniac (32) - De Weere, NETHERLANDS - FEB 14, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 19, 2021 Gisteravond maar een flesje opengetrokken, 2019 versie. Vol romig, zoet van de ahornsiroop, dikke smaken van koffie, mokka, chocolade, boterbabbelaar, Haags Hopje, koffielikeur met een lekkere booze, maar zonder te alcoholisch over te komen. Dit is een perfecte Barrel Aged Stout, de smaken lopen lekker in elkaar over en door de zachtheid smelt ie weg in je mond. Ik heb laatst op internet gelezen dat de 2019 Batch waarschinlijk de laatste zou zijn, en dat zou eeuwig zonde zijn.Eind januari toch voor de zekerheid een flinke hoeveelheid ingeslagen toen ze flink waren afgeprijst.

4.2
Bosbouw (3413) - Brabant, NETHERLANDS - FEB 7, 2021
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2021 Mooie bruine bijna zwarte kleur. Ruikt vol vanille. Smaakt vol vanille alcohol.
