Had the 2011 KBS on site during the release party; it was served in a large snifter.
A- Pitch black, but does not appear thick or oily as other bourbon barreled aged beers. No light passes through. Very thin brown lacing that does not retain at the sides of the glass for long. Nonetheless, it has beautiful thin layer of head that is swirled on top of the beer.
S-Chocolate and vanilla, mmm. This smell is not too powerful, very little to no hints of bourbon. This can be attributed to its rather cool serving temperature.
T-Fantastic. Chocolate, vanilla and coffee notes. Very little sweetness is detected, a lingering coffee and baker's chocolate taste lingers in your mouth.
M-Just enough carbonation, not too much not too little. Chocolate and coffee coats your tongue and leave you wanting more. Each sip/drinks coats your tongue just a little bit more but does not overpower the palate.
D-Superb!!! For its high abv, it is easy to get into trouble with this stout. I had more than I should of since it was so easy drinking. If you can get this on draft do so immediately and plan to get a taxi because you will want more than one (or two or three) CHEERS!
Serving type: on-tap
