COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A bit of backwoods pleasure without the banjo. This strong stout is brewed with a hint of coffee and vanilla then aged in oak bourbon barrels. Our process ensures that strong bourbon undertones come through in the finish in every batch we brew. We recommend decanting at room temperature and best enjoyed in a brandy snifter.

A small bottle at Darby’s Gastown in Vancouver. A black beer with tan head and potent nose of coffee and cocoa. Deep, dark and delicious! No more need be said. 4.4

Bottle, 2016 release. Color: Almost black, thin light brown head. Taste: Full-bodied, syrupy. Roasted malt, medium sweet, decent amount of hopbitterness, notes of dark chocolate, vanilla / bourbon and coffee and lightly boozy and wood hints. Below average carbonation. Long lasting bit sticky bittersweet finish. Nicely balanced, no harsh tastes. Personally I like the KBS just a little bit more than the sweeter CBS.

Pustelnik1 (90) - Nieuwegein, NETHERLANDS - FEB 3, 2018
Słodko waniliowo kawowo bourbonowy aromat, ze sporymi dozami czekolady. Smak rewelacyjny: mocny akcent bourbonu i świeżej kawy, dalej wcale nie mniej głębokiej czekolady, wanilia, drewniane nuty, suszone owoce. Słodkie w stopniu umiarkowanym z wyczuwalną kawową kwaśnością oraz paloną goryczką, bardzo dobry balans. Ciało gęste, kremowe.

12 ounce bottle. Rating number 3000! Pours jet black with a small creamy tan head that disapates quickly. Roasted malt nose. Earthy, woody notes. Picking up bourbon and chocolate. Flavor is roasted malt, oak, booze, cocoa, coffee and more. Many layers of flavor. Middle brings intense bittersweet notes of burnt sugar and booze. Some sticky, chewy notes in finish. Like chewing a Tootsie Roll while sipping Makers Mark bourbon. Truly the standard for Imperial Stouts age in Bourbon casks.

macca147 (829) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2018
Bottled. Pours an ink black with a tan head. Aroma: roasted malt, coffee, bourbon, oak, vanilla notes. Very aromatic, and very nice! Taste: bitter coffee, bourbon, oak, vanilla, roasted malt flavours. Full bodied. Mild sweetness with a moderate boozy finish. Mild bitterness. Slick texture. Very very tasty. This is definitely a great beer!

bbbeer (916) - Massachusetts, USA - JAN 31, 2018
Very dark brown with minimal tan head. Aroma coffee, oak, chocolate. Full body with some alcohol but fairly smooth. Off dry flavors, mocha, vanilla, wood, roasted malt. Very good and pretty drinkable for the ABV although not sure it stands way out from various other high quality imperial stouts.
