Ok so 2010 vintage KBS takes the cake I cant lie.. Side by side notes were extremely hard especially after drinking a beer or two and then having to deal with 2 of what are possibly the best beers Ive ever had and had only heard about prior to this day not to mention 11+ octane for each..

Here we go with 2011.. keep in mind these notes precede the vintage 2010.

2mm tan head dissapates to awesome glass coating lace.

smells of rich bourbon oak, chocolate, getting more coffee notes on this one than the aged bottle. f..king incredible nose

smooth still full body mouthfeel.. Creamy

immediately tasting chocolate, coffee, roasted malts.. trailing off ..

Overall... Drunk...

I cant tell you how lucky I feel to have had this experience.. Great beers side by side..
Cheers Ben..
