Pours a pitch black very thick with a small dark brown head which recedes into a lasting ring with nice lacing.
Aroma of bourbon, roasted coffee and malt.
Taste followed the nose with roasted coffee, bourbon and vanilla.
Medium body, creamy and smooth with light carbonation. The alcohol gives a nice warm ending.
This is one of the best stouts that I have had, very worthy of all the high ratings and hype.
I thank my son for the two bottles of KBS he put in my Birthday beer gift.
Great job Founders.

The story behind my trying this beer made it worth it even more. While visiting some friends in Kalamazoo, MI, several friends suggested making a trip to Grand Rapids to try the seasonal release of the KBS from Founders. We arrived around 5 am in the morning to find people wrapped around the brewery almost twice over. By the time noon rolled around, we found out that cases were no longer being sold because of the unanticipated number of people in queue. 30 minutes later, 12-packs were no longer available, and eventually by the time there were less than 50 people in front of us, we were informed that there were no longer any bottles available but the taproom still had plenty. We went in and I bought a pint and was immediately impressed. For a stout-drinker like myself, it was the epitome of perfection! It is slightly sweet from the higher-ABV, but otherwise a world-class beer!
Serving type: on-tap
