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

lasage (34) - DENMARK - FEB 18, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2018 Flaske, 2017 release. Meget massiv sort, ikke tendens til meget skum, 5 mm brunlig som hurtigt svinder til tynd ring, mellem viskøs. Aroma fad, karamel/sirup sødme, mørk ristede malt. Lækker rund smag, sød men ikke kvalm, karamel/sirup, god kant fra mørk ristet malt, ganske lidt kaffe/chokolade. Eftersmag minder lidt om mørkristet kaffe og fad. Super lækker stout.

Mad_Ferret (1029) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 18, 2018
Bottle from SB. Oily and black with a creamy thick brown head. Nice smooth bourbon aroma with chocolate, coffee, maple, cinnamon and cocoa. Sweet roasted taste with thick dessert like chocolate, coffee, bourbon, maple and some rum soaked cherries. Big body with super soft carbonation and a velvety slick texture. Maybe bordering on the sweet side but damn this is well made and tasty.

DraftScout2 (37) - - FEB 17, 2018
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 Kolor czarny, piana drobnopęcherzykowa, nietrwała. Zapach czekolady, wanilii, bourbona, trochę kawy. W smaku mniej kawy, niż bym się spodziewał. Dużo słodyczki, beczka. Świetnie ułożone. Alkoholu nie czuć wcale, wysycenie niskie. Świetne piwo, warte hype’u. Chyba lepsze od KBS.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2018 Svart med litet beige skum som blir kvar som ett litet fint lager. Doft av kaffe med inslag av vanilj. Smak av kaffe, sötma från vanilj med en genomgående fatkaraktär. Det här är riktigt gott!

popiela (1060) - Poznañ, POLAND - FEB 17, 2018
Butelka 0,355l. Aromat średnio intensywny, delikatna beczka, czekolada. W smaku o wiele słodsze od KBSa, beczka, syrop klonowy.

tiong (7823) - Espoo, FINLAND - FEB 17, 2018
355ml bottle from Boxbeers. 2017 release. Pours pitch black with a small brown head. Aroma of roasty malts, coffee, bourbon, oak, vanilla, hints of maple syrup and toffee. Taste is sweet, slightly syrupy and roasty with loads of bourbon, vanilla, oak, toffee, hints of maple syrup, chocolate and coffee. Finish is smooth, slick and slightly warming with loads of bourbon, oak, wood, coffee, hints of maple syrup, chocolate and vanilla. Not quite as perfectly balanced as KBS, but still pretty good.
