2014 bottle poured into tulip glass. Thanks Chris for hooking me up with my first KBS!

Smell is phenomenal; chocolate, malts, slight coffee/bourbon. Mouthfeel similar to Founders Imperial Stout and Breakfast Stout with more of an alcohol burn on the finish, but the actual bourbon taste isn't as strong as I hoped for.

Delicious stout, but not worth the price and hassle to attain.
