Had this on tap @ Churchkey. I was third in line waiting, by the time the doors opened there were over 20 people waiting to get inside.
Decanted into a 10oz. snifter from a pint glass as they were having carbonation issues for the first few beers.
This beer is dark black with no discoloration around the edges. Thick creamy head that dissipates fairly quickly to an oil slick coating. For the amount of maple syrup in the aroma I was slightly disappointed in it not following through to the flavor. Body is astonishingly light for the abv and complexity of this stout. Bourbon flavor is enjoyable but off set by the sweetness of the beer. The two pours I was able to get went down way to easily, especially for 10$ a pour. It was pretty unanimous at our table that it was a mellower sweeter KBS, which we were all happy with.
If you know your going to have a chance to drink this, bring pancakes.

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!
