2012 vintage. Pours jet-black with a significant amount of dark-brown head. Smells of coffee and a shot of high-proof alcohol. The taste is amazingly complex: oak, bourbon, coffee, Belgian chocolate, and toffee. The first sip can be harsh, but it becomes nice and smooth as it warms. One of the best barrel-aged stouts I've ever tasted.
I've had this on-tap and in bottles, both fresh and aged one- through three-years. KBS' defining characteristics drop significantly the first two years, leveling out by year three. I usually prefer beers like this aged, but for me KBS is best fresh as it becomes just an average barrel-aged beer the older it gets.
Serving type: on-tap
