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

bottle. I popped this bad boy in celebration of having our first kid! I’ve had this beer at tastings and I think this is even better than I remember. The aroma is a small amount of bourbon, mostly the sweetness of the maple comes through and is very welcoming. The taste is smooth as well. You get a little more bourbon in the taste, but the sweetness stays with it as well. Finishes clean. Glad I picked this one to celebrate, it almost compares to having a baby for the first time ;)

Black body, firm lasting tan head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, bitter malts, syrup, vanilla, mocha. Sweet flavour, quite round, molasses, roasted malts and light coffee. Silky mouthfeel, quite sticky, lasting coffee in the finish.
More rounded and balanced than the normal BS. The barrel also seems to provide some stickyness to the brew. Nice!
