I bought a four pack of this beer several months ago, out of the one case that was shipped to my entire area in SC, they have been sitting in my closet for three months, and today, what the hell? Sharing this one actually with my mom, who is a big fan of burbon-infused brews.
On the pour, there now is a snifter of 20-50 motor oil in front of me. The beer has a perfect amount of light lacing that adds to the beauty of this monster. I couldn't see through this with a spotlight if I had one.I wish every cup of espresso looked this delicious.
Smells like burnt burbony oakiness, vanilla, coffee,bitter cocoa, massive malty goodness, iced coffee, a perfect touch of sweetness keeps the alcohol and burbon in a perfect check. This is exactly what I was hoping for. Hops are buried in the malty sweet goodness. It smells so good its almost hard to drink because then it will be gone. To quote Beerfest " I want to stick my dick in it"
O..my..god This is fantastic as anticipated. Kahlua like sweetness, followed by a wave of burbony infused chocolate coffee thick goodness. Vanilla, smoky malts, caramelized brown sugar.I get burbon at the start and finish of each sip in differing levels of spiciness and intensity. The sip is perfect, not spicy and burbony overtones, rather restrained and utilized.
The finish is thick and spicy, like a well aged burbon. The best burbon-infused brew to have ever passed my lips thusfar is being consumed at an alarmingly fast rate, that is the only sad thing about this great experience. A smoked gouda cheese would work beautifully with this. A madagascar vanilla infused dessert, a burbon sauced venison served rare would marry great into the spicy character of this brew...or a great brunch brew with smoked cheese omelets..or as it serves now A Kentucky Breakfast indeed alone in all its delcious goodness.
Founders Breakfast stout is one of my favorites to date, and it's big brother KBS has just completed a meteoric rise to #1.
I am going to hide the bottles I am aging, or they won't last very long!
