A- Completely black opaque body, some dark expresso colored head.
S- Intense nose, every dark mysterious flavor is in here, chocolate, dark coffee, lots of smoke surrounding everything along with sweet bourbon and toffee with almost a syrupy sweet caramel. Smoke comes through in a burnt charred tabacco woody kind of way. Theres more to find here, see for yourself!
T- I would say the taste is more coffee foward and less on the smokey side of things, truth be told this is delicious but I appreciated the nose more with its smokey complexity. Lots of roast and acidic coffee flavors and with a shot of bourbon.
M- As massive as this beer is its not a thick as you might think, more smooth which I think enhances the flavors and enables you to find all the nuances instead of distracting you with the thickness.
O- Definitely world class, definitely original in terms of Bourbon Barrel aged beers, this brew has tons of complexity and flavors to pick out. One needs to sit on this one and contemplate all it can offer your palette.

I've been eagerly anticipating my first taste of KBS and goddamn was it worth it!!! Maybe the best beer I've had to date. The pour is an inky black with a very small and short lived tan head that leaves a slight lacing but lots of legs. The aroma is a perfect blend of(in order of dominance) coffee, chocolate, bourbon, vanilla, oak, and a little hops. The mouthfeel is as silky and smooth as any beer ever made. The flavor is an incredible smooth bomb of coffee, bourbon, chocolate, oak, vanilla, butter, hops. Simply fucking delicious and amazing. I'd sell my soul for a whole case. J/k....not really.
