12oz bottle (from 2/17/12) in a snifter glass.
A- pours opaque black, no head or lacing, thin mocha film that does not last. It kinda looks like flat cola.
S- Chocolate right up front which I thought to be a sign of good thins to come, I was wrong. There's some roasted malt, coffee, molassses, vanilla. The aromas come and go as the beer warms. The predominent stench of booze hides any certain identity.
T- The aromas try to show themselves in the form of flavors but the booziness sets up a roadblock.
M- Slick ,heavy, and boozey.
O- I don't get it...all the hype and not even close to FBS for me. I don't like all the booze here. An IPA and a snifter of B&B would please me much more. I feel that my ratings could be even lower, but the rest of BA can't be wrong. I gave it every chance, oh, well.

Poured the Kentucky Breakfast Stout into a Belgian Tulip
A - The beautiful imperial stout is black as midnight with no light getting through. Poured aggressively with a half finger of mocha head. Did I say beautiful..?
S - The best smelling beer I've had the pleasure of smelling. Mocha chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and slight aroma of bourbon. I am also getting vanilla, a little toffee some char as well. First class all the way.
T - Wow, the chocolate bourbon ball explodes on first taste, coffee, roasted nuts, malts. This is unbelievable, just simply the best and smoothest barrel aged beer I've ever had the luxury of tasting. I can on and on about this beer, but you must do yourself a favor if you have not had this beer, seek it out and relax and enjoy a true winner.
M - Quite simply the smoothest, richest beer, heavy mouthfeel with just enough carbonation. Excellent stuff here my friend.
O - The benchmark, by all other beers should be judged. Many have tried, but no one has come close to Founders barrel aged beers. The first and probably only perfect score from me. A true classic. Worth all the hype and then some. Cheers !!!
