4.18/5 rDev -9.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25
Undated bottle (thanks Vikings1201) into a snifter at fridge temp; allowed to warm 30 mins prior to drinking. Full disclosure, I was very disappointed by FBS, so I'm tempering my expectations for KBS.
Look: Dark dark brown. Basically nonexistent head—musters a millimeter that dissipates to a mere dusting after a second.
Smell: Chocolate, bourbon, and coffee, in that order. After it's allowed to warm, a little vanilla sneaks in, but remains pretty straightforward.
Taste: Chocolatey coffee stout goodness with a fair bit of bourbon heat (but milder than fresh BCBS, which is more of a bourbon bomb to my palate). A marked improvement over FBS. Flavors all blend nicely, with no one dominating the others.
Feel: Smooth and medium-thick. A little tingly, but really just spot-on for the style.
Overall: Good, no doubt, but I've got easy access to plenty of brews (like FW XVII or Stone Southern Charred) that put this to shame. Tasty beer, but people need to keep things in perspective.
