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.

elgatoborracho's rating

Great blend of flavors. Where Founders Backwoods Bastard is so, so heavily influenced (dominated really!) by the bourbon, here the bourbon is matched with other flavors to produce a wonderfully straightforward yet complex stout. I want more!

KW92 (1592) - Warszawa (Warsaw), POLAND - JUL 14, 2017

Butelka z datą : 01.12.17
AROMAT : Intensywny. Przyjemna beczka (drewno, wanilia, kokos), trochę z tyłu alkohol, kawa oraz nuta warzyw strączkowych (groch, fasola).
SMAK : Bourbon, kawa, alkohol, gorzka czekolada. Posmak kawowo-Bourbon/owy (alkoholowy). Alkohol słabo ukryty. Brakuje mi "ciała" (gęstości / oleistości).
WYGLĄD : Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzyste. Piana drobna, bardzo niska.
OGÓLNIE : Nieułożony alkohol, a raczej słabo ukryty to największy zarzut jaki mam do tego piwa. Leżakowanie może odrobinę by pomogło. TOP50 wśród RIS’ów na Świecie? Wątpię. Beczka po Bourbon’ie to nie wszystko.

Review based on the BJCP2015 guidelines (33B/30A/20C). Bottle 35.5 cl - Batch unknown (BBF 30.11.17). AROMA: medium and well balanced notes of chocolate, slight coffee, dried grapes and prunes. faint vanilla. vinous background complements the aroma. APPEARANCE: almost black in color and opaque. Brown creamy medium head with good retention. leg formation. TASTE: medium-high chocolate note that evolves into a medium-low coffee and roasted malt character. initial low bourbon note. médium bitterness with a semi-dry and roasted finish. PALATE: full body with a velvety texture. médium carbonation. smooth alcohol warming. OVERALL: a very good flavored imperial stout more balanced on the aroma than the flavor.

The standard breakfast stout is one of my faves, but this one just amps it up. Bourbon flavours early, then the big chocolate/coffee hit. Maple, vanilla, brown sugar all over the place. Smooth, and incredibly easy to drink for how big it is. Thick and black, dark brown head fades quickly. My new top beer?

Fajne piwo, jest czekolada, trochę paloności, jest beczka, chociaż lekko za mocna wg mnie, jest kawa. Bardzo dobrze zrobione piwo, przyjemne do picia naprawdę, ale nie jakaś petarda.

pictoman (1126) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 11, 2017
Poured from 355mL bottle (2016 vintage). Near black with tan head. Great blend of roast malt, light bourbon, chocolate, and mild coffee. Full body, alcohol mostly hidden. Very easy drinking.

MatChar (59) - Quebec, CANADA - JUL 9, 2017
Appearance: dark black, brownish undertones, not so dark foam, quickly fading and thin, low-effervescence. Smell: sweet vanilla, bourbon, wood. Taste: notes of chocolate, vanilla, unripe red berry and plum, subtle wood, with quite dry and awesome feel, ending with smooth alcool and bitterness. Overall: highly impressive feel at 11.2 ABV, surprisingly complex, incredibly balanced beer.

beer_est_deus (1296) - örebro, SWEDEN - JUL 9, 2017
Totalt kolsvart med ett riktigt brunt tätt skum av små bubblor. Doft: Sött, kola, kaffe, vanilj, chokladglass, aromatiskt trä, choklad kakor. Smak: Som doft med betoning på choklad glass + Mozart kulor och bourbon "likör".

Noform (86) - Tarnowskie Góry, POLAND - JUL 9, 2017
leje sie czarne w przewężeniu widać ze klarowne piana dość nietrwała ale pozostawia beżowy kożuch. Zapach jest bardzo przyjemny, kawa, czekolada i wanilia z beczki. Smak jest intensywny gorzka czekoladowy z nutą kawy i beczki wysycenie średnie mogło by być niższe ciało średnie troszkę zawodzi.

Founders KBS (Kentucky Breakfast Stout)? Ewwwwww....like hearing the tones of the banjo duel from "Deliverance".....makes a man weary, scairt, and afraid to creep back into bed with his sister....which is the shame A MAN can do without. Or not. KBS is not KFC. KBS is not PBS. PBS is not KBS. And I am not ashamed to say that CBS is not KBS. Nor should it be. When you want a BBS (Blatz Bonanza of Shame) hie thee down to a place of ill -repute and put your liver on life support......and stay away from this swill. As a wise man once said, "fuck the poor"! And fuck this junk. This junk is junk will make your junk look like junk.
