Got 4 pack in a trade from hotpipes29 and thanks much to him. Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. From the cellar, I chilled it for about 20 minutes. Sadly no born on date though I know its this year's batch. The legendary KBS...will she live up to the hype?
A - Pours a motor oil black with a small, sticky copper head. Minimal lacing.
S - Prevalent scents of bourbon and vanilla. Hints of expresso find their way in. Incredibly balanced aromas.
T - There are so many layers to this beer, each so definable. It starts with a bitter chocolate and vanilla flavor. Coffee/ expresso flavors follow which are perhaps the most profound characteristics of this beer. It finishes with a slightly hot bourbon note and a lingering coffee taste. Chocolate and hot alcohol strengthens as the beer warms. Founders has found a near perfect balance between these three tiers.
M - Full bodied and incredibly smooth. Semi dry finish.
O - Outstanding barrel aged stout, perhaps the best of its kind. It's certainly a sipper and one to enjoy over the course of an hour, perhaps more. However, with that said, the booze might be slightly too hot at times, especially as it warms. Luckily, I have the good fortune of possessing a four pack. I'm looking forward to testing this one in stages. See you again in a few months KBS...

Served on tap at the Constant Spring in Goshen Indiana.
This is a beautiful inky black beer with a gorgeous golden head that stays around for a little while.
Awesome aroma full of coffee and vanilla.
Huge amount of flavor. Starts slightly boozy, but then smooths out and and the other flavors come through. Massive notes of bourbon and vanilla on top of the awesome coffee and chocolate flavor. Brilliant.
Super silky mouthfeel.
Just fantastic, by far the best beer I've put in my mouth.

Not a stout fan, but this definitely isin't a regular stout. I couldn't have enjoyed this more.
A- Extremely dark with a slight bubbly brown head.
S-Coffee and Chocolate all day, awesome smell.
T-Neither the coffee or chocolate was terribly over whelming and complemented each other perfectly.
M-Full body but not overly syrupy at all.
O-Believe the hype, this beer is the real deal. Real pleasure to enjoy!
