Amazing! If there was an A+++, I would rate it as this. Heavy cocoa, roasted malt, coffee and bourbony (alcohol) aroma. Can't believe this is 70 IBU. Buttery mouthfeel.

Tastes of coffee, a hint of vanilla, some chocolate milk, all with bourbon notes throughout. Awesome. Hammy78 (975) - Dundas, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 19, 2013 Rating 600’ thought I’d celebrate with something I’ve been waiting to get my hands on. Pours a motor oil black, with medium brown swirl for head, tons of spots of lace that are left behind. Nose is a little booze, but mainly deep dark rich and semi carmalized malts. There is some vanilla in there too. Tastes silky smooth, cold coffee, bitter, dark chocolate. Malts linger, there is some booze there too, but not as much as you would expect. Cold coffee, chocolate and whiskey, what more could you want? Every time I have this I like it more and more. Bacterial (3054) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - APR 6, 2013
Lucky to get two bottles this year. The beer that started the American BA craze, it lives up to the hype. Dark black pour with a tan head. Nose is bourbon and chocolate. Smoke, roasted chocolate and bourbon with just a hint of coffees the finish. Nice! Godofthecellar (678) - NYC, New York, USA - APR 6, 2013
Poured a deep brown with a half inch of creamy espresso which dissipated quickly. Smell of roasted vanilla beans and coffee. Flavor of oak, vanilla bean, chocolate and bourbon. Incredibly well balanced and delicious

Deep black stout! If you love breakfast stout KBS is money! Hints of oak ,bourbon, coffee, vanilla , chocolate. Smooth creamy body. Dr_MedievAle (215) - Alabama, USA - APR 5, 2013
UPDATED: JUL 20, 2014 Aroma: caramel, chocolate milk and/or whipped chocolate ganache hit the nose, both while in the bottle and in the glass.
Appearance: creamy tan head. body a robust coffee black. a milkyway-like constellation of lacing. swirls elegantly with no syrupy mess.
Taste: chocolate frosting on fresh cake up front. washes down a caramel flavored coffee. hints of breadiness in the background that get subdued and mellowed out by the oaky bourbon.
Palate: medium. good carbonation. lacks the thickness i’d expect from this beer, but its milkshake still brings this boy to the yard. tdmuel (251) - South Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2013
Pitch black, no light getting through with a creamy brown head. Nose is HUGE, mostly bold roasted coffee, milk chocolate, hazelnut, and light oak and vanilla bourbon notes. A lot more of the bourbon comes through in the taste, plenty of boozy vanilla and oak coming though, some roasted malt, light milky chocolate flavor, and tons of coffee. Medium bodied, a lot easier drinking than I would have thought. Some of my favorite flavors for beers melded together excellently, and not just another bourbon bomb.

Pours dark black and opaque with brown foam small head. Aroma of coffee and dark spicy chocolate. Can smell high alcohol bourbon. Tastes like an irish coffee. Starts coffee kinda smooth-edged into bourbon bite that smooths to milky chocolate and coffee that increases to large black coffee aftertaste. Considering I don’t like coffee and the smell is so harsh, it is smoother and good taste. asmall (19) - Monroe, North Carolina, USA - APR 5, 2013
