This beer was poured into a glass stein. A big thanks to Geneseohawk!
Appearance- KBS pours like motor oil. It so incredibly viscous and heavy. The body is completely black. The chocolate colored cap builds to a finger and look really smooth. Good retention, but not much lace.
Smell- The nose is full of bourbon and coffee roast. The dark chocolate on the nose adds some nice snap to the smell.
Taste- Wow! The bourbon is not the most dominate profile, but there is certainly heat packed into this one. The chocolate and roasted malt are the most noticeable flavors after the alcohol. There is a little bit of dark chocolate as well that is strong in the finish
It is also surprising that vanilla and some oak coming out too. It rounds out the drink very nicely. I am all for a stiff drink, but I wish the alcohol backed off just a little bit.
Mouth feel- This one is really slick. It goes down very easy. The chewy factor is awesome.
Overall- I would gladly give this one a perfect score if the bourbon was not so strong on the palate. Otherwise, this is one incredible and deep stout.
