Served up in a snifter.
Poured super dark with some red and amber highlights with not much of a head and no lace to speak of. Nose is cigar smoke and faintly alcohol. Taste is coffee, bitter chocolate, smoke, toffee, whisky, and vanilla. Mouthfeel is smooth and dry with just a few sharp bubbles.
This is a fantastic brew. Though the nose is a little too much on the burnt plastic side, the rich, complex, and lingering flavor is outstanding. Definitely one of the elite American stouts.

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!
Serving type: on-tap
