Finally get to try this, BOY am I psyched. I've been spoiled this year after attending the KBS release and having 2 cases to work through. But I didn't get the chance to try CBS at the release and I can finally stop kicking myself!
@ Beer Engine. Poured in a cute 8-10oz souviner glass coffee cup. Great creamy head smells like we have a winner.
Taste was absurdly perfect. Great roast - a bit more than KBS, nice chocolate tones and a residual sweetness from the maple to balance out the bitterness of the beans. The whiskey kick in this is second to none. Side by side with KBS it becomes apparent which wins the battle for stout supremacy. Mouthfeel is creamy and freakn' perfect. I had 3, so drinkability was in an unheard-of zone for such a dark and strong beer.
I'm starting to question if I can continue to live in Cleveland after drinking this. Grand Rapids may be the luckiest city in the US to have this on for many days each year.
Right now, it's 4:13 EST. Michagan still sucks, but their beer...oh man, their beer!!!!
A++ offering, great job Founders!!
Serving type: on-tap
