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

Flaska från SB. Tack Daniel! Komplext, sött men också lite kärvt med så många lager av smaker. Grundölet är så stabilt och maffigt i sig med all rostad malt, mörk choklad, kaffe till det lönnsirapens söta lite träiga nyanser, söt vaniljig men också rivig bourbon och i bakgrunden lite kärv tjärig hårdrostad malt. Perfekt balans. Mycket gott.

I can't believe I found this at my local hole-in-the-wall distributor. Pours a completely opaque black with a light tan head. Aroma is sweet maple, roasted coffee and cocoa beans with hints of vanilla and toffee. Taste is very sweet maple syrup, chocolate, almond, pecan and vanilla bean; followed by a bold espresso and oaky bourbon finish. Absolutely delicious; however expect to pay a shitload $$ if you manage to find it.

Bottled 355ml. -from Beer Republic, b(r)ought by Iznogud, thanks. Pitch oily black coloured, medium sized brown head, chocolate and vanilla in the nose. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, vanilla, bourbon, noticable alcohol and light maple syrup sweetness with dry roasty and slightly alcoholic finish. Smooth for ABV, great brew.

Arôme de bourbon, malt torréfié, café, sirop d'érable, pointe cendrée. Goût de malt torréfié, café, chocolat noir, bourbon, amertume moyenne-faible, pointe de sucre. Carbonatation faible, corps dense, onctueuse. Superbe!

4.4
Hopmaestro (1910) - Örebro, SWEDEN - APR 13, 2018
Aroma is full and rich from chocolates, raisins, sweetness, maple syrup. Taste carries a lot of coffee and deep dark chocolate. As the beer warms up, the maple syrup aligns with the beer and becomes even more apparent, yet balanced. Sweet in the end and it has a long aftertaste.
