On tap at Goodfriend - The moth was raffling out tickets just to be in line to buy a glass. Stopped in randomly after work to be pleasantly surprised.
Pours very black and syrupy, with a thin lace that lingers. Sweet toffy, caramel and bourbon flavors as expected. Was able to snag 2 glasses before the keg blew. Very pleasing overall.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a stemmed tulip glass. This bottle had about 5 months of age on it.
KBS is a delicious looking beer, dark and murky with a mocha head. The nose has a massive chocolate and coffee character with lots of sweet malt and dried fruit notes. The flavor is very complex but is dominated again by chocolate and coffee. There are notes of deeply roasted malts, brown sugar, raisins and ending with a hoppy bitter finish drying the taste out. There is a nice bourbon flavor, but it does not dominate (or mask) the other flavors. KBS is pretty boozy and has some hot alcohol. The finish is very long and dominated by the bitter characteristics of the brew (bittering hops, burnt coffee).

This is a great beer with some age on it. I think that it taste actually pretty bad when it is fresh. Kind of like Bourbon County Stout. But with a year or two on it, it is an amazing stout. The color, mouth feel , and nose even surpass the flavor in my opinion. Don't get me wrong the flavor is amazing but that is how good the other components are.
