CBS release 10/1/2011. Cold night, perfect day.
Black beer, solid but short tan head.
Like KBS, CBS smells like Kahlua. Cocoa liqueur. The sweet malts and the bourbon meld together.
Very rich taste. Strong sweetness with a subtle liqueur edge. But as you drink it, you realize it's more complex than the initial sip. Less vanilla than KBS. Coffee is there but it's deep and not obvious. I didn't detect a distinct maple taste, but I would say it is slightly sweeter than KBS--like a rich molasses has been added. Perfectly drinkable. Great as it warms.
Certainly deserves its place among the best.

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!
