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

ChrisOs Christmas Tasting. Opaque brown beer. Tidy mid tan head. Softish fluffy palate. Sweetish mid malt, maple. Mild tang. A little coffee. Minerals. Aniseed alcohol. Lacto malt. A little chocolate. Finishes semi dry and milldy warming. Complex but perhaps could do with a little ageing. Great beer though!

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2018 Degustada en Olut club de cata,en botella,buen cuerpo,en nariz aromas a pimientos asados,luego en boca desaparecen y llega un intenso sabor a cacao y algo de vainilla,un toque de dulzor quizás por la barrica de sirope de alce.

Al club de tast de l'Olut (Sabadell)... un d'aquests birrots de Founders. Crec que al final abusen una miqueta de les barriques de Bourbon...
