Acquired in trade with Kirok1999. Poured from the Iconic stubby screwtop bottle into a pint glass.
A - Motor oil inky black with a bare tint of chocolate brown. Almost no head, but leaves faint legs like a wine or whiskey.
S - Lots of rich roasted coffee and chocolate, with a shade of sweet vanilla and bourbon. Heady, aromatic, and lovely.
T - Bitter burnt coffee and chocolate flood the palate, backed up by the heady, floral vanilla and the slightly sweet, slightly boozy bourbon. Finishes with faint hop/coffee bitterness, but otherwise clean.
M - Heavy and smooth, almost oily, with mild carbonation adding a bit of levity to the viscous, chewy mouthfeel. Elegance, thy name is KBS.
D - Definitely a sipper due to its ABV and weight, but the booze is well hidden and actually adds to the experience via the bourbon flavor. Excellent for casual sipping and surprisingly not too hefty in the gut.
overall - A definite winner. It's sharp, bitter chocolate and coffee contrast oh so well with the sweet, heady, smooth vanilla and bourbon. The notes are simple, but so well executed. A joy to drink.
