I had this at South Philly Tap Room as part of their Founder's Tasting this weekend. At SPTR they had this and 13 other Founder's beers on tap, I'm glad I got some before they ran out (as they definitely would've even with the 1 per customer limit)
The stout poured an opaque oily black, with a tinge of sandy foam. This is what in a imperial stout should look like.
The smell was fantastic! There was initial nose of roasted coffee, followed by some sweet chocolate, malt, and vanilla. It smelled like brewing coffee at a bakery with hot pastries coming out of the oven
The taste was just as good. I hate imperial stouts that are just sweet, the KBS had creamy malt flavor with the balance of bitterness from the coffee and chocolate and sweetness from the grain. You could taste all the ingredients individually and they blended very well together. Even my friends, who tend to like lighter ales, were impressed.
The mouth feel was full and luxurious with the beer coating my entire mouth and transfering all of its goodness to my whole palate
I rated this beer only as a 4 for drinkability, because with any beer with 10% ABV, this is just not possibly sessionable. And after more than one you couldn't really taste or appreciate anything else from the KBS tastebud assault
Serving type: on-tap
