Aroma upon opening is huge. Big notes of bourbon were initially apparent, giving way to coffee, dark chocolate and tons of sweet molasses. Very rich. As rich and thick as they come.
Pours perfectly black, with a thin dark coffee brown head.
Now for the taste. It's immediately evident that is very thick. Oily. A bit boozy in the front from the bourbon but not really bad at all for its high ABV. Next, the coffee this is brewed with is very noticeable, along with a good dose of chocolate and thick, molasses sweetness. Finishes with an alcoholic bite from the bourbon and with a little bitterness from the roasted malts. Basically, it's thick with coffee, chocolate and molasses upfront, with a boozy, roasted finish.
Definitely one of the thickest beers I've ever had. This is like a coffee and chocolate milkshake with bourbon in it. For its high ABV, I'm very impressed by its drinkability. Give me this over most imperial stouts any day.

I've been eagerly anticipating my first taste of KBS and goddamn was it worth it!!! Maybe the best beer I've had to date. The pour is an inky black with a very small and short lived tan head that leaves a slight lacing but lots of legs. The aroma is a perfect blend of(in order of dominance) coffee, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, and a little hops. The mouthfeel is as silky and smooth as any beer ever made. The flavor is an incredible smooth bomb of coffee, bourbon, chocolate, oak, vanilla, butter, hops. Simply fucking delicious and amazing. I'd sell my soul for a whole case. J/k....not really.
