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

caribou43 (2428) - Lausanne, SWITZERLAND - SEP 2, 2021
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2021 This bottle is coming from the sterk, Amsterdam. Opening it on the last saturday, at home, Epalinges, preparing thd meal for Guillaume and family. The body is black and opaque, regular carbonation for the style, white and brown foam. A dream with your open eyes, even the fact that it is a commercial brewery. A nectar for the eternety, complex stout or rather imperial stout, boozy and subtle, full and smooth aromas of roasted malt, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, oak, fruity with notes of cherry, a bit liquorice, syrupy and creamy with a touch of dryness due to the hop at the final, great!!!!!

UPDATED: JUL 28, 2021 Bottle from 100 piv. Pleasant aroma of maple syrup. Bit high carbonation. Taste of maple syrup, dark chocolate. I can't really taste coffee. All blends nice together though. Sweetish. Warming alcohol. Lovely.
