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.

Here it is. This is a 12 oz. bottle poured into a snifter. It pours a velvety dark brown/black color. The head is tan/brown, fluffy, and leaves a lot of lacing. The aroma is equal parts coffee and dark chocolate, with hints of booze and vanilla. This isn’t a coffee-forward as FBS, but it’s no slouch in that arena either. The taste is coffee upfront followed by chocolate and roasted malts. I’m getting very little in the way of vanilla, caramel, oak, or other BBA flavors. Incredibly smooth, silky, full mouthfeel. I don’t like this quite as much as FIS, but it is fantastic.

Noire et opaque. Mousse brune qui tient moyennement. Arômeschocolat, café, réglisse, vanille, bois, fruits noirs, fruits secs. Goût bien supporté par l'alcool : chocolat, café, noix, sucré/candi. Le chocolat reste en bouche. Sensation crémeuse et chaude en bouche, carbonatation très fine et peu abondante. Très bonne, mais on n'en bois qu'une dans la soirée :)

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

EvNa (657) - Ede, NETHERLANDS - FEB 9, 2018
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.
