Bottled 2/25/11, Thanks Gushue3 for the trade!
Poured into my Founder Snifter glass (I'm tacky like that)
A: Poured very thick, like a deep black cream. 1 finger brown head leaving a nice ring lace around the glass.
S: The smells that immediately hit my nose are incredible. Coffee grinds with an incredible malt backbone. Bitter chocolate with a slight bourbon smell on the very end.
T: I've never tasted anything like this. A light creamy vanilla with a roast coffee back. Smooth malts and milk chocolates finishing with a nice sweet bourbon and light woody taste.
M: Heavy bodied with an amazing lingering mouthfeel. Slight carbonation with a nice oily film that leaves an amazing subtle coffee with vanilla taste. Coats the palate with precision.
O: WOW! This was my first KBS and it didn't last long. This is by far the best beer I've ever had. The complexities of this beer are outstanding: the roasted malts, bitter coffee, sweet chocolates and vanilla, finished out with the wonderful hints of bourbon and the oak make this an incredible beer. I hope every BA gets a chance to try this beauty at least once.

Pours very dark like FIS and yields a beautiful burnt mocha head, that does linger quite a while. Big lacing on the glass, pitch black - slightly lighter than FIS.
Dark bakers chocolate, cocoa powder, dark roast coffee, oaky vanilla. Not much bourbon but substantial oak.
Very enjoyable, but not much going on. The coffee flavor is pretty one dimensional and the bourbon is not there to my palate.
