Notes & Commercial Description:

Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS) is the epitome of why we launched the Backstage Series: to bring some of our most sought-after beers, which have been available primarily at the taproom or at a few select events, to a much larger audience.

Canadian Breakfast Stout is an Imperial Stout brewed with a blend of coffees and imported chocolates, then aged in spent bourbon barrels that have most recently been aging pure Michigan maple syrup.

On tap at Flying Saucer anniv in Memphis. Poured a very dark brownie brown with half a finger of tan head.

Smell was chocolate and roasted coffee, but not as potent as I was expecting.

Very sweet, maple isn't overpowering but there. Loads of chocolate, and roasted malt. Some might say it was cloying, but I love this profile.

Beautifully thick and syrupy.

Overall a world class beer, and I'm glad to have had a shot at it. Really well done
