KBS! A legend of a beer, a hipe slayer.
Finally got to try this at the blue dog's wealth of riches. Even if it was only 5 oz.
What struck me most was how balanced this beer is in the aroma and flavor.
The appearance was deep black in color with a thick ringlet of mocha foam around the edges.
Due in part from the high ABV's most likely.
The aroma was simply fantastic with many different smells that played off each other.
Plenty of roasted malts, coffee and dark chocolates, creamy vanilla, oak, and bourbon. The aroma was complex, sutle and worked well together.
The taste was equally fantastic, more so actually. Bold and sutle, sweet and bitter with great deapth of flavor. Roasted malts, creamed coffee, milk chocolate, vanilla cream, oak peat and bourbon and the list goes on.
There is a sweetness that reigns in all the flavors, mellowing them out nicely.
At the end is a refined bourbon taste that warms and coats the tongue and mouth.
On the palate it drinks like a medium thick weight. It flows over the palate with the greatest of ease. Sticky sweetness lingers into a semi bitter and dry aftertaste.
It's interesting how the nose suggest a more robust dry and bitter taste say like a black coffee but it drinks smooth and creamy like coffee and cream. Perfectly aged.
WOW. A beautifully well rounded beer that easy drinking with great depth in flavor and aromas. WOW!
