Enjoyed this at Hurricane Maggie's in MB, where the bartender told me slightly different story on the namesake. His claim being it came from the gentlemen who is the president of the local home brewers assoc. and that he came up with the recipe and New South just brewed it for them. Whatever the story, this is a pretty delicious beer. Hints of fruit up front mellowing into rich cocoa and coffee. Easy drinking for an 11%er.

Sample @ Brewvival 2014. Brown pour with a small head. Sort of hoppy nose. Pine cone and singed grass. Coffee and burnt brown sugar. Tosted nutty malt flavor. Dark chocolate. Hints of smoke. Earthy end of the sweet/bitter continuum. Full body, soft carb.

Sweet nutty nose with mostly malted notes. Appearance is fabulous very dark and a nice tan head. Palate is equally rich decadent and complex. Vanilla oak licorice. Growler from the brew pub. Nice!!

Draft at the source. Brewery says 9.7% abv. Better with each sip but definite lingering bitterness as other reviewer stated. Looks like imp stout but fruity aroma.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Kentucky Fried Charleston Trip Beer #115. Draft at Brewvival. Pours a dark brown color with a thin brown head. Fair head retention and lacing. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, herbal hops, nutty notes. The taste is bitter chocoalte, roasted malts, bitter hop finish. Medium bodied, lingering bitterness. I wrote "passable" for some reason.

Growler, from the brewery, thanks inlaws! Pitch black, small tan head. Nice subtle bourbon aroma , sweet, some roast as well . Taste features more bourbon , but nicely balanced with the substantial sweet stout behind it . Lots of oats, cereal, and roast, with a sweet slightly boozy finish . Not terribly complex, but just a solid solid beer . Nice treat!

Nice balanced imperial stout. Not boozy at all. The 68 IBUs leaves a nice clean and not sweet finish. Will be interested to see how this ages.
