I am glad I was able to attend the 4th Ave. Pub's tasting of all the Breakfast stouts. The CBS was still a bit boozy for my tastes, but he KBS fit my bill a bit better. It looked like a solid imperial stout, with a very dark, almost black body with a thin dark tan head. It smelled of bourbon, vanilla, roasted malts. All in good portions. The taste was great, but I missed the maple that CBS had. There must be some perfect middle ground for the smoothness of KBS, and the sweet notes of CBS. Maybe my perfect Founder's beer is the yet to be released Curmudgeon's Better Half. I am very interested in picking up some bottles of this and seeing how it ages. Overall, kudos to Michigan, Founder's, and the bourbon barrel, who without this beer would never be possible.
