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.

Im not a stout guy but this one is up there. A bit heavy and definitely not your normal stout. Easy pour with no head and i feel like my glass is heavier than normal. As for taste its like a black coffee that you stirred in a twix candy bar. On the back end has a slight bourbon note. Over all for me it a drink again stout ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at First Draft in Chicago. Its the fourth beer on my 41st birthday so I owe it a re-rate in the future, but it has eluded me for many years. Boozy bourbon and oak on the nose. Lots of vanilla, char, and sophisticated oaky flavors. Bourbony finish. Awesome.

Its always hard to live up to the hype and while I enjoyed this it didnt blow me away. The taste was a little unbalanced and over powering but maybe thats just me. My drinking partner loved it.

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2017 Half a year ago I drunk Vintage 2015 from a bottle, now I had opportunity to drunk vintage 2016 (12.4%abv) on tap and several times from bottle (11.9% abv???) Pours black oily color with big creamy long lasting light brown head, which transforms itself to a ring like by espresso coffee. Visually low carbonation. Aroma: big coffee note, dark chocolate, vanilla, leather, oak, dark fruits, dried fruits, bourbon, oak, vanillin. Flavor: double espresso coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruits, especially plums, vanilla, molasses, hint of licorice, intense roasted coffee bitterness-astringency, oak- vanilla - tannins, bourbon...finish is dry, thick. Body is full, texture is creamy, super smooth, carbonation is low.

Satyroneto (349) - BRAZIL - JAN 8, 2017
Produzida em 2016, Verso 12,4% ABV. Cor negra com espuma marrom (de capuccino) de mdia formao e persistncia de uma fina camada com excelente lacing. Aroma muito intenso de chocolate ao leite, alm de torrados (caf e cinzas), madeira e leve lcool. Sabor inicial com doce do chocolate ao leite e torrado de caf, evoluindo para um meio amadeirado e alcolico. Final com toque de bourbon, evidenciando o dulor da baunilha e o amadeirado. Retrogosto equilibrado entre a madeira e o doce da baunilha do bourbon, ficando mais amadeirado e alcolico (aquecendo a boca) com a elevao da temperatura. Corpo sedoso e licoroso com baixa carbonatao. Perfeitamente harmonizado com panetone de doce-de-leite com especiarias e coberto com chocolate.

Rami Rami is drinking a Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS) (2016) 12.4% by Founders Brewing Co. at Chmielarnia MarszałkowskaBardzo fajny, zlozony, beczka ewidentna ale taka nie to ze wanilia, tylko kompleksowo, klasa niewatpliwie ale i ciut zawod. Praliny. Slodko.
