Finally trying the much heralded KBS. Pours jet black with almost no visible carbonation. Decent sticky lacing. Totally opaque; appears nearly still. A tiny hint of dark brown head vanishes almost immediately.
Strong aroma of vanilla, coffee, and traces of bourbon underneath. Very appealing.
Wow, delicious, super vanilla coffee combination; bourbon is underneath and subdued. Sweet and roasty at the same time. Complex. The most prominent vanilla flavor I've had in a beer.
Syrupy and thick with just a touch of carbonation. Sticky and lingering in the mouth. Scrumptious!
The hype around this beer is pretty well justified. As it comes to room temperature more complexities emerge, with a warming bourbon kiss on the finish that's quite nice and doesn't overpower the other flavor characteristics of this beer.
