Had this one for the first time on 12/31/13 and it was the best beer I had ever tried up till that time. That was before KBS. Very complex aroma and flavor. Lots of bourbon, chocolate, coffee, toasty favors all meld together perfectly. Can't wait to see how this ages.

Drank as the first beer of new year's eve 2013/4. Date on the bottle was September 2013.

A - dark, dark. No light showing through. Vigorous pour, yet no head.
S - alcohol and deep roasted malts.
T - bourbon, vanilla and maybe licorice. The taste is great.
M - thick and alcoholic
O - I thought it was a great, but a bit on the pricey side.
