KBS bottled almost one year ago!
A: Pours an inky dark black with little to no head -- not much more to say. Very clean. Looks like a solid BA Stout. Nothing too special, though. Gonna add some points here because for a beer with minimal head the lacing wasn't half bad.
S: Smells like a bourbon bomb. Oaky. Some subtle coffee notes in the background. Some vanilla, maybe. But, for real, bourbon.
T: Taste waaaayyy better than it smells. Bourbon taste so mild. Alcohol is very mild, yet warm. The oaky vanilla is the first thing I tasted. Tobacco. Leather. Some chocolate , even. Super nice boubony-warm finish. The roasted malts and coffee flavors have really mellowed out over the past year. There's even some sweetness in here. Fantastic.
M: Smooth and creamy. Coating the mouth in what I could only describe as a stout liqueur. Still very nicely carbonated after the year. Velvety. Buttery. Think body. Very good chewiness. Great feel all around.
O: What a great tasting Stout this is. The appearance and smell give way to a wonderfully tasting brew. Gotta try it. I suppose I'd try it fresh the next round, but this beer tasted really good with some age on it too. Great brew. Did not disappoint.
