Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: CRJMellor on 02-01-2009

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.

Poured at Rustico in Va. Smell is fantastic, mouthfeel is velvety and the maple is present and so delicious it had you smacking your lips for more. Maple syrup is not too sweet. Doesn't overpower the chocolate and bourbon notes. Really lucky to try this
