From Blind BIF # 6
Once again, shared with Chaseabeer. Stubby, 12 oz bottle poured into 2 snifters. my initial thought is im about to review KBS due to the shape of the bottle and the beer i was instructed to drink before it.
A pitch black body, rich tannish / brown head with moderate dregs. great looking beer 4
S coffee, chocolate, vanilla, malt, mollases, black licorice 3.5
T I start off getting a lot coffee and hops, the chocolate and vanilla are very subtle in this beer, starting to taste a hint of the black licorice from the nose. Can definitely taste a hint of alcohol. 3.5 This has me questioning the KBS and now thinking maybe Founders imperial stout.
M thick, creamy and silky smooth. Coats the mouth with very little, noticeable alcohol. 4
O- This beer is pretty darn good and i know ive had this before. Just trying to put a finger on which beer. I think it is Founders Imperial Stout, Chase thinks Breakfast. The flavors play nicely against each other and the smell really keeps bringing you back for another wiff. 4
Speaking of Whiffs! The reveal: KBS. Wow, did not pick up the barrel or bourbon at all. I have had this beer many times and have always enjoyed the boozy, bourboniness. Thanks again Alewatcher for another fantastic beer! This beer was either perceived completely different from any other time if had it or this was a batch I've not tasted.
