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.

Definitely a high quality stout. The bourbon barrel really comes through, more so than any other barrel aged stout Ive had. Great beer but doesnt blow me away like a BCBS. More than worth the $5 price tag.

Maris (1465) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - APR 27, 2017
From a 355ml bottle on 27/4/2017 (2016 edition, 11.9% abv). Pours near black with a small tan head. Has a strong aroma of chocolate, coffee and bourbon. The flavour is huge, and similar to the standard Breakfast Stout, but with the bourbon edge and some extra booziness. It features masses of chocolate and coffee, some vanilla and hints of caramel, with some light roasty bitterness. the palate is thick and creamy, and the carbonation soft. A magnificent brew, though my failure to fully embrace barrel aged beasties means I cant rate it higher than the standard Breakfast edition. But if youre into barrel aged, youll struggle to find better.

This one is a little over-hyped, but still great none the less. The coffee doesnt hold up well to aging this beer imho. Worth trying at least once. Cheers!

Ocena przepisana z Untappd w ramach uzupełnienia profilu. Aromat: na pierwszym planie kawa, mleczna czekolada, praliny. Smak: dobra kawa (żadne tam kwaski arabiki PL), kakao, czekolada, ciut wanilii, bardziej w kierunku goryczki niż słodyczy, alkohol bardzo dobrze ukryty.

sawbuck (717) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2017
2017 vintage. Nice aroma of vanilla, dark chocolate, hint of coffee, and some bourbon. Ebony color with a thin tan head. Sweet up front. Vanilla, followed by rich coffee. Bitterness covered by charcoal notes from barrel, then boozy bourbon comes through nicely. Carbonation just right, pin like and small. Slightly slick mout feel. Warm boozy finish. Nice.

amfinkel (3) - California, USA - APR 25, 2017 does not count
KBS bourbon barrel aged is strong, aromatic and surprisingly easy to drink. I love a shot or two of Blantons or Woodford, but combining the essence of a fine bourdon so brilliantly with Founders ability to construct a bold stout creates a masterpiece. For those who appreciate Epics Big Bad Baptist or North Coasts Old Rasputin, KBS will ignite your passion. Truly the epitome of bourbon barrel stouts.

kyzr (1459) - Montana, USA - APR 24, 2017
On tap, pours black with medium long-lasting head. Nose of coffee, vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate. Flavor to match that just coats the entire palate. Not much else to add to this classic!

skortila (5680) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - APR 24, 2017
Finally found a bottle of this. :-) 35cl sample. The aroma has strong vanilla, smooth moccha and chocolate, bit roast and bourbon. Black coloured beer with a creamy, beige head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, light-moderate sweet with strong vanilla tones, very smooth moccha chocolate, bit fudge, chocolate and roasty tones. Very pleasant smooth mouthfeel. Barrel aging is wonderful done, not too much and definitely getting the bourbon complexity in the beer. Good stuff. Lives up to its status.

Bawelt (818) - Lyon, FRANCE - APR 24, 2017
Trs bien foutue. Nez bien gourmand, rond, complet : caf, chocolat, signature carame, torrfaction timide, a sent un peu le gras, do le ct gourmand. Bouche plutt puissante, pas agressive, assez paisse, bien plus torrfie et noire. Petite attaque caf. Les notes gourmandes sont en soutien mais sefface devant le caractre. Superbe longueur.

dagimp (993) - Philly, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2017
2017 brewing. Crowler from Kunda Beverage in King of Prussia, PA. Pours oil black with minimal dark brown head. Sweet bitter coffee and booze aroma. Mouthfeel is heavy but not super heavy. Little carbonation. Taste is both of coffee and bourbon. Coffee makes it kind of bitter. Bourbon makes it sweet and bourboney but not crazily so. Very good but I doubt Id hunt it down. Glad to have tried it though.
