12 oz. Bottle of 2010 KBS:

A: Dark black with only small amount of head; the beer looks just like breakfast stout.

S: Smells of coffee and bourbon with faint hints of oatmeal. The oak gives the beer a very earthy feel as well.

T: Bourbon, coffee, and chocolate on the palate, the oak bitterness and oatmeal are more present on the finish. The taste is good, better than Breakfast Stout but not as good as CBS.

M/D: Not overly drinkable, mouthfeel is smooth but it is a bit harsh on the finish. Still a very good beer that lives up to its reputation.
