Founders KBS is an American Imperial Stout aged in oak bourbon barrels in a cave under Grand Rapids for over a year~ With a heaping 11.2% ABV, she pours about jet black, with a thin and light look~ Aroma is Chocolate, Coffee, Smoke, Milky, Espresso, Bourbon, Vanilla and Oak~ Feel is rather light to medium considering what's in this beast, smooth as aged glass from the pacific, almost unlike any texture I have ever had, just cascades and almost seems to 'Disappear' as it gets swallowed, tingles a bit and it satisfying, mild burn~ Taste is... Oh here we go, Just like heaven~ All the for mentioned stuff in 'Aroma' Chocolate, Coffee, Smokey, Milk, Espresso, Bourbon, Vanilla and Oak~ Also, over tones of Brown Sugar, Cinnamon, Raisin, Dark Fruit and Mocha~ This Stout lives up to its name, overall very rich, complex and smooth... Many flavors can be picked up, however its the strong... Coco, Oak, Vanilla and Mocha paired with just probably the smoothest creamiest cascading texture I have ever felt that make this a superior brew that easily lives up to the hype, factor in a HUGE 11.2 ABV that only leaves a faint burn at best and you have what I believe may be the (or at least top 3) of the universes greatest beers, A new reigning champ in my book~ Overall: 98
