In fairness, the bottled date on the four pack I bought was October of 2012. I don't know if Wegmans found them in the back and put them out a year later, or they just sat neglected on the shelf, which would be a shame. At either rate, they were a good find and I am glad I tried it. Not as strong as I expected. Strong notes of coffee and chocolate, however, the coffee was not as strong as the smell lead on to be. Despite this, one of the best stouts I have ever had, and very, very enjoyable.

Had this one on tap at the Founders taproom in Grand Rapids. Poured into a snifter glass. I may be unfairly comparing this to the KBS because I had the two so closely together. This beer is good on its own, but pales in comparison to the bourbon-y brother. Coffee aroma on the nose with dark roasted malt. Very light texture for a stout with the coffee flavors coming through along with some light chocolate notes. Next time I'll have to give it a more fair shake as a standalone taste, but still a solid beer.
