Poured from newer logo'd "KBS" 12 oz bottle into a New Belgium Snifter. Unfortunately, I did not have this for breakfast because that would've been perfect.
A - Dark dark stout that shows a tan head (like a RIS). The top showed pockets of head like a belgian yeast typically produces. Great lacing on this guy.
S - Simple, wood and alcohol. Roasted malts and coffee could be picked up beyond.
T - Gets dinged a little because of the sharp alcohol burn, but a fantastic brew otherwise. Lots of chocolate and roasted malts. Heavy oak flavoring to match the bourbon taste.
M - Heavy, creamy, good carbonation. I do like Imperial Stouts with heavy carbonation to let the flavors dance around like a Dark Lord. This is no Dark Lord however.
D - I really wish this was more than 12 oz. I'd like to taste on a 750 ml all night.

The story behind my trying this beer made it worth it even more. While visiting some friends in Kalamazoo, MI, several friends suggested making a trip to Grand Rapids to try the seasonal release of the KBS from Founders. We arrived around 5 am in the morning to find people wrapped around the brewery almost twice over. By the time noon rolled around, we found out that cases were no longer being sold because of the unanticipated number of people in queue. 30 minutes later, 12-packs were no longer available, and eventually by the time there were less than 50 people in front of us, we were informed that there were no longer any bottles available but the taproom still had plenty. We went in and I bought a pint and was immediately impressed. For a stout-drinker like myself, it was the epitome of perfection! It is slightly sweet from the higher-ABV, but otherwise a world-class beer!
Serving type: on-tap
