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.

Yeah, as good as advertised. On draft in Vermont after a successful day at Hill Farmstead. I think as far as stouts with maple syrup go, I still prefer Beyond Good and Evil by a nose. Chalk that up to being a HF homer. Still, I was pleased to have this on draft.

Full of maple and vanilla, accompanied with roasted malts, milk chocolate, mild coffee. Rich, full, creamy body. A terrific stout.
