A: Pours black and silky with a thin brown head that dissipates quickly. Decent lacing and light carbonation.
N: Bourbon, dark roast coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and oak.
T: Starts with bourbon, oak, dark roast coffee and bitter dark chocolate. This is followed by vanilla, molasses, toffee, subtle dark fruit and some booze. Finishes bitter with some floral hops.
M: Medium bodied, silky, creamy, smooth and dry.
O: Still an exceptional beer fresh but I definitely prefer to put some age on it.
Aged 1 year. Vintage 2010.
A: Pours pitch black with hardly any head. What little head that is there is very lacy. Almost no carbonation.
N: Bourbon, coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla and caramel.
T: Bourbon, espresso, coffee grounds, dark chocolate, toffee, molasses, brown sugar, vanilla and oak.
M: Creamy, silky and warming.
D: Extremely smooth, delicious and balanced! Goes down a little too easy. Yes, it lives up to the hype.

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
