This is a curbside review of this beer from a few notes that I scribbled down at the sampling at Haymarket in the west loop. That place is gonna make it big. I've got a feeling... Anyways, CBS is a brew I've wanted to try for quite sometime now. I knew it would happen eventually - my 8 oz. tonight were consumed from a small tasting glass at perfect temperature.
CBS looks very similar to KBS, but with a lighter, less fluffy head. The foam was more of a tan/off white as opposed to the brown of KBS - there was a half finger head that didn't stick around too long. The smell of CBS is what sets it most apart from FBS, KBS, and other excellent stouts. I get fresh coffee, brown sugar, vanilla, chocolate, maple syrup, and honey in the nose - seriously. Wow. The taste is fresh roasted coffee up front with maple and honey in the middle, rounded off with some bitter roasts in the finish. Drinkability is out of this world. No EtOH burn, not too sweet, not too bitter. I could easily drink 24 oz. or more.
Serving type: on-tap

Honored to try the last batch ever of this fantastic beer. This is the 2011 version and according to the founders rep here, is the last of this beer. This is one of the finest beers that I have ever had. As close to a perfect drink as you can get. It tastes like breakfast stout with a subtle maple taste. Wow!
