12oz 2013 edition poured into a Snifter, first time having it fresh.
A vigorous pour leads to a fat two finger khaki head that stays afloat on top of a pitch black body. Smells of subtle sweet bourbon notes, dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, vanilla, oak, and hints of booze.
The taste brings on lots of fresh roasted coffee beans, followed by subtle bourbon notes and the classic rich sweet dark chocolate, milk chocolate, cocoa, and vanilla perfection. Pretty mind-blowing.
Incredibly smooth, creamy mouthfeel, and a little warming effect on the finish. Heavy bodied but not too overpowering. This is a magical brew at room temperature. World Class.

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!
