Poured from a 12oz bottle into a stemmed tulip glass. This bottle had about 5 months of age on it.
KBS is a delicious looking beer, dark and murky with a mocha head. The nose has a massive chocolate and coffee character with lots of sweet malt and dried fruit notes. The flavor is very complex but is dominated again by chocolate and coffee. There are notes of deeply roasted malts, brown sugar, raisins and ending with a hoppy bitter finish drying the taste out. There is a nice bourbon flavor, but it does not dominate (or mask) the other flavors. KBS is pretty boozy and has some hot alcohol. The finish is very long and dominated by the bitter characteristics of the brew (bittering hops, burnt coffee).
