2010 Version on Tap at Fat Heads.

A: Pours a viscous dark black color with no light coming through. Provides a thick light brown foam head with excellent retention. There is some moderate lacing.

S: Let this brew sit and warm for 15+ minutes. There is some nice hints of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla/oak, maple syrup and light roasted coffee. Lots going on but not overly potent.

T: A nicely balanced beer from start to finish. Ample amounts of bourbon and coffee astringency in the beginning that is quickly balanced by the chocolate and thick rich michigan maple syrup.

M: A perfect full bodied beer that leaves a thick viscout layer of slick and sweet coffee, bourbon and maple on the palate.

O: One of the main reasons we hit up Fat Heads this Sunday was to try this brew. It certainly did not disappoint at all. Nice complex flavors that are balanced perfectly. Again, this was aged one year, I would be interested in doing a 2010 and 2011 tasting to compare.

Founders CBS

Pours a dark tar black with a small short
livid head. Aroma of coffee, booze, syrup and chocolate. In the taste, aggressive bourbon, roast, coffee, oak and a pronounced alcohol burn. The stout qualities are there, with a black roast flavor and boozey barrel notes. At the end of the sip there is a sugary residual sweetness due to the maple syrup, along with an astringent bitterness from the hops, coffee and bourbon. Mouthfeel is full bodied and well carbonated. Overall, a treat of a beer and worth seeking. Enjoyed at Fat Heads Brewers Brunch 2011.

A - Back in black, black beauty , black mamba... Yeah its black. With a two finger dark brown head that leaves wonderful lacing.

S - Coffee and whiskey are the biggest smells to me.

T - Wonderful whiskey flavor , coffee, malty goodness, and maple syrup.. and some burnt sugars.

M - Great carbonation, coats the mouth and leaves a slight whiskey burn, with a after taste that sticks around.

D - This is a wonderful brew to have and I can't wait for its release soon ! It's what you would expect it to be.

On-tap at the Brewster DeCicco's, served in a snifter.

A: Totally black body under a finger of creamy dark brown head. Solid retention and light lace. Beautiful, rich-looking stout.

S: Hugely sweet (buy hardly cloying) aromas of rich maple and vanilla oak explode from the glass. Some milk chocolate and roasted coffee are underneath, but this is all about the maple + oak. Awesome.

T: A supernova of flavor, and yet never over the top, somehow. I'm bombarded with smooth maple, rich coffee, delicate bourbon, and more maple on the long, sweet finish. Absolutely decadent, absolutely delicious.

M: Silky smooth, moderately carbonated, and perfectly luxurious.

O: What can I say? This one deserves the hype. It's everything I want out of a hyper-flavorful stout, and delivers everything in a remarkably drinkable format - I had two 9oz snifters, and could have easily had two more. Definitely one of the best stouts I've had the pleasure of tasting.

Cheers!

From notes 8/5/11. RB Review #1000! Huge thanks to beddachedda. Brewery-filled 12 oz bottle. This beer is so damn good and one of the best stouts that I’ve tried. The maple flavor is absolutely wonderful and blends into the chocolatey stout perfectly. I tried the Founders imperial stout lineup together, and CBS was head and shoulders better than the rest, though I’ve never been a KBS fan, to be honest. The pour is black and thick. It has an awesome dark brown head, not quite Hunahpu dark but close. The aroma is a perfectly meshed combination of barrel and stout flavors. Chocolate and maple are the strongest notes, but coffee, roast, vanilla, bourbon and oak all play significant roles. The taste is pretty much perfectly sweet to complement the stout’s flavors. I had to stop myself from drinking my entire glass in one go. It’s a great beer to sip with its big, round mouthfeel and wonderfully complex interplay of flavors, but it was so delicious that I had to force myself to slow down. The syrup flavor fits with the beer even better than I could have hoped (and to be honest, my hopes weren’t set all that high). It has all of the best flavors of rich, dark maple syrup. It reminds me of a test batch of bourbon barrel-aged maple syrup that I tried at the S. Burlington farmer’s market. I found out recently that Founders will be bottling this stuff and I absolute can not wait for another round. Thank you to Founders.

A: Pours a very deep black with almost no head and minimal lacing

S: A huge explosion of coffee, maple, oats, and a touch of booze

T: Chocolate, maple brown sugar, wood, boozy, and a nice hint of vanilla

M: Robust and yet very smooth and goes down so easy for a beer around 10%.

D: This is as close to a perfect beer as you can get in my opinion. I'm very happy to hear that they are bottling this soon.

Picture your last oil change whipped by an egg beater so there is a finger's froth of brownish tan ringed by some whacky clinging sheets of leggy lace. Better look than this out there? This taster hasn't seen it.

Take a bouquet of dark caramel, light roast, pinch of vanilla, a bit of herbal bitter, floral notes, some oak with a hint of booze, add bitter chocolate and just a wee scent of expresso and, well, square it, and you'll get this perfume.

A taste beyond description. The creamy mouthfeel interconnects here, all the flavors of the nose are represented with just a hint of maple, in a balance that is perfect, and the mouthfeel frames them in a way that allows them to shine like no other stout I've tried. I wanted to go perfect score here, but rounded down, as nose was rounded up.

Mouthfeel also borders on being beyond improvement. A hint more maple here, and a touch more bitter in finish might be even better, but perhaps this is perfect?

The best I've tried. Certainly worth the effort to taste, but come on, let's get this bottled and on shelf!

Special thanks to DeCicco's for making this happen. 8oz pours into a wine glass. Thanks to Cavedave for splitting his last glass with me.

A- Pretty much pitch black, maybe a touch of brownish color. Mocha colored head tight head, with light lacing.

S- Rich chocolate, coffee, and some sweet booziness. I get some roasted malt, coffee, and oak as well.

T- Smooth initial flavor which transitions to a sweeter bourbony flavor. Chocolate coffee and malt again, with some hints of oak flavor. The maple is really that prevalent, but comes through as sweetness and adds some body. Very very nice.

M- Pretty darn good. It could be a little bit thicker, but the body on this is better than KBS. Carbonation is spot on, and the mouthfeel is very nice.

O- This one of the better barrel aged stouts around. While it's not my favorite, it's definitely in the top 10. I've been kind of losing interest in KBS lately, but this beer I could drink year round.

After missing this on tap at least 4 or 5 times I finally had the honor of trying it at Decicco's. Reviewed from notes on 8/10/11. Poured into a snifter.

Served with a 1 finger creamy dark mocha head with moderate retention. Beer is an opaque pitch black. Lacing is stringy and web-like with good cling. Above average for the head and lace.

Nose is heavy on the roasted malt and maple. Dark chocolate, espresso bean, and wet wood linger in the back, providing a nice combination. Robust and deep overall.

Beer opens chocolate, maple and roasted malt. Dark chocolate provides a nice bittering balance with espresso flavors coming in towards the middle. Heavy maple syrup at the end with a sweet coffee and maple aftertaste. Not the greatest complexity but this one definitely delivers on the flavor profile promised.

Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and silky in the mouth and warm going down. Messy finish with a pleasant, lingering aftertaste. Really drinkable.

Overall, there's a bit of disappointment after chasing this one for so long. Its a very solid beer but certainly not up there as one of the most memorable imperial stouts I've ever had. I'm a huge fan of maple infused stouts though and this one's a great example of that if anything.

So fortunate to try this beer @ decicco's, 8 oz. pour. Black, this beer is black, period. Half a finger of coffee colored tan head that vanishes as fast as I notice it. Speckles do cling to the snifter as I consume. Aroma - vanilla, chocolate, some alcohol is apparent in the nose. Licorice, but little and a tid bit of maple. The flavor is rich and filled with vanilla and chocolate notes, brown sugar, nice oak-y goodness, maple yes I can detect hints of it as well but a more un-refined variety. As the beer warms it takes on depth of flavor with some bourbon and brandy like quality.
The mouthfeel is somewhat thin and somewhat hot. It does have a dryish finish however and is not all that cloying. A great beer perhaps but not as great as it is rare; like many rare beers sadly. Still to say I am not psyched to have tried this would be a lie.

Growler fill. Pours a dark brown/black with a small beige head (combination of the growler and too cold at the time of pouring).

The aroma is very similar to the regular Breakfast stout with the addition of the maple syrup sweetness. Mostly coffee, roast, and a touch of dark fruit.

The flavor was everything that I have enjoyed in the regular Breakfast stout: Coffee, dark chocolate, and roast with the added dimension of the maple syrup sweetness.

Cold the body seemed a bit thin. As the beer warmed, the body came around (although not as full as I would like) but remained creamy smooth to drink. The alcohol was not a major factor until it warmed significantly.

I had this at DLD, but my brain and palate were pretty much shot by the time it came out. This was a nice surprise to find so close to home. I have and continue to enjoy this one (at least for a few more sips).

This is fan-freakin-tastic!! By far the best of the Founders’ stouts. Joan Jett black pour with a small tan head. Aromas of whiskey, coffee, and chocolate. Big mellow whiskey, sweet maple, chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt flavors. Glad I got to experience this wonderful beer...

what a glorious beer. i love FBS and KBS, so this isn't exactly earth-shattering, but this is by far my favorite of the founders breakfast stouts. i was worried that it'd taste like syrup, but the vanilla and maple syrup is only lurking in the back. one thing it DOES do is help take away the heat that was around in KBS '11. all the flavors come together perfectly: vanilla, maple, bourbon, and breakfast. i want it bottled NOW!

Had on tap at Kite and Key at Philly Beer Week 2011.

A. Black with a coffee colored head that lasted for a long time.

S. Bourbon, coffee, & chocolate with a touch of maple. There was a lot less maple than I thought. It was perfect.

T. Amazing taste. Chocolate, but on the sweet side not bitter, coffee and muted bourbon.

M. Medium level creamy carbonation. Slightly thinner than I expected.

O. Very drinkable. It was not heavy at all and it did go down really easy. I would not have stopped at one. Or two. Or three. But... I was forced to. I have had the Kaiser Crum. and it was a bit too sweet and I was afraid that this would be a sweet KBS. It wasn't, it was its own beer.

on tap at kite and key in philly

Pours a thick, viscous black color with a fluffy browned head. Retains throughout the entire pour and leaves sticky lacing everywhere.

Thick scents of maple syrup, sticky sweetness, bourbon and oak with chocolate and nuttyness. Some hints of coffee with roasted beans and heavy malt.

Massive flavors right up front with bourbon and boozy warmth. Roasted malts with a substantial amount of coffee and dark chocolate, some cocoa powder and a decent amount of sweetness. Vanilla and oaky tannins, some cake and decadent rich flavors. Finishes with warm booze and syrup which wraps around the tongue.

Full bodied, milder carbonation, thick syrupy consistency, soft and smooth on the tongue. Absolutely delicious from top to bottom, although I think I prefer KBS.

Had this at the Rattle N Hum Founders takeover event. May 24th

A: Opaque black with little to no head that had a tan color head No signs of carbonation. Looked like most other great looking stouts that I have tasted before.

S: Smell of strong, sweet maple syrup right up front. Throw in nice mix of chocolate, hints of coffee and a small amount of vanilla thrown in. Made me want to drink this immediately!

T: The first taste that strongly came through to me was the great tasting syrup. A nice malty mix that followed with hints of a very delicious chocolate backwash. A few more sips I can maybe pick up the Vanilla which reminded me of Bourbon County Vanilla. At around 9%, the alcoholic content was very well hidden. Overall I'd say this taste was a little bit disappointing to the hype, but very delicious nonetheless. If they would bottle this and priced it moderately it would be well worth it. The 12 dollar price for an 8oz sized serving was a bit much.

M&O: The mouthfeel is what surprised me the most. It was very very creamy and medium bodied. It went down so smooth and it was the epitome of what I would look for in mouthfeel! Overall I would recommend this beer to everyone, to at least try once even if the price tag is quite high.

On tap at GI Clybourn during Rare Stout Night, 25 May 2011. Four ounces in a taster.

This pours deep, viscous black with a small tan head rising up and falling away into just a bit of film with some slight lace sticking around. On the nose, there are mostly equal proportions of bourbon, toasted oats, dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, and oak, with the maple syrup riding underneath it all. I was surprised that the maple was so subdued and the bourbon so prominent, as I would have expected it to be the opposite. It's a phenomenal nose. In the mouth the base beer comes out a bit more, the dark cocoa, fresh roasted coffee beans, and toasted oats providing the backbone for vanilla, oak, bourbon, and maple to play with. They've taken a great base beer, whatever it is, and aged it in barrels such that the barrel flavors mix and compliment rather than overpower. Again, I was surprised at the maple being more subtle that super sweet. The body is big but not humongous, though the finish is super long with the alcoholic heat dying away last.

Overall, this is a nice counterpart to KBS. To me, they're pretty close in flavor, with one notable addition here. Both of these beers are perfect examples of how barrel aging can take a great beer and make it better, rather than take a great beer and tack flavors on. Everything here is very well integrated. Can't wait for this to hit bottles, and glad I had the opportunity to try it.

EDIT - Had this again as part of our local group's Founders beer brunch including this, KBS, FBS, FIS, and the BLiS syrup used to age this one. KBS was the slight winner for me but this was excellent as well.

Wow— the famous CBS. On-tap at Rattle n Hum's Founders Event.

Served in a wine glass.

Completely dark and muddy in color with tan-colored head of approximately one-fingered breadth. Stringy and spotted lacing on interior. On the nose is preliminarily dark-chocolate dominated with great amounts of butterscotch/caramel, vanilla and the maple syrup. Small amounts of alcohol towards the end. As you let the glass warms, the complexity of the stout becomes more evident. Sweetness of the maple syrup becomes extracted further and enhances the experience even more. An amazing smelling beer.

Taste begins with an awesome toasted malt complex, which immediately eases into a phase of smooth and buttery caramel and vanilla essence. Favorite part of the flavor profile, in my opinion; reminds me of an '08 vintage of GI BCS. Experience ends on immense decadence of dark chocolate bitterness and milk chocolate creaminess. Like the smell, complexity arises upon continuous warmth. No alcoholic booziness either. One of the best tasting stouts for sure. Mouthfeel is full-bodied and creamy – just right for this stout.

So privileged to finally try this much elusive beer. Worth the hype, but not sure if the $12/8 oz. tag was justifiable. Nonetheless, the stout was incredibly tasty. Huge thanks for the RnH family and Founders for making this happen for me and other BA's.

A: The beer is jet black in color and poured with a finger high dark tan head that slowly died down leaving lacing on the surface and down the sides of the glass.
S: There are moderate aromas of bourbon in the nose along with some notes of oak.
T: The taste is very well balanced between flavors of bourbon, chocolate and roasted malts. The maple barrel aging contributes a slight amount of sweetness.
M: It feels full-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation. Warming from the alcohol is present in the finish.
O: The beer is extremely easy to drink considering its strength because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste.

On tap at the Founders event at Rattle n Hum.

A: It pours the color of midnight oil, completely opaque. There is a strong one finger tan head that displays excellent retention. It coats the sides if the glass in really impressive sticky lacing.

S: The sweetness is really out front accompanied by notes of chocolate and coffee. The bourbon is noticeable but comes off more subtle overall.

T: This beer is full of dark sugary flavors; maple, coffee, chocolate, vanilla, touch of anise, bourbon, and burnt caramel. Sadly, in the end, it finishes a bit too sweet for my liking.

M: It is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

O: Good beer, but after all the hype it has received I expected to be knocked flat on the floor. The lingering sweetness knocks this one down a bit for me. It would be interesting to see how it would age in a bottle.

Appearance as you would expect from a Founders stout - dark brown, near-black body, tan/brown head.

Aroma and taste are big coffee, with chocolate, a roasty quality from the coffee and bourbon characteristics - I found very little in the way of maple. Honestly, I didn't find it all that dissimilar from KBS. CBS is mellower and sweeter.

It's a very good beer for sure. But it's similar enough to KBS in my opinion that it's not worth the hype to hunt down CBS. Now with that said, I'll probably be the first one running to the store if it's ever bottled. Sigh.

Founders CBS

A- pours dark black with a decent khaki chocolate head that fades to a nice ring of lacing. Dark red shades outline the glass as light penetrates.

S- smells of sweet bourbon coffee. A slight oaky vanilla comes through. 

T- taste is fantastic. You taste the coffee chocolate base followed by the sweet maple and vanilla bourbon flavors. Alcohol definitely comes through but is welcomed within the complexity of the flavors.

M- mouthfeel is medium. A little lighter and smoother than KBS. Alcohol is secondary to the flavor profile

O- overall this is truly a great beer and deserves all the hype it  gets. Cant wait to have it again in the future.

This was a top want of mine, and after missing it at Teresa's two years back, I managed to miss it three other times by mere minutes. I wasn't taking any chances this time, and arrived at the Tavern on Liberty in time to get Ticket #6. Friggin sweet! Once it was poured, I let the beer sit for about 20 mins to warm before getting down to work...

This gem comes to me, a coal-like black body below a light brown creamy fluffy cap. Around the edges, rich garnet and ruby hues manifest themselves as highlights against a deep backdrop. This relatively high-gravity brew leaves irregular wisps of lacing on the glass as its level diminishes.

The aroma has really opened up in the 20 minutes that I waited. When it came to me, it was chocolatey. Now, with some warmth and some contact with the air, this bouquet has blossomed to reveal maple syrup, bourbon and the vanilla that it brought along for the ride, along with toffee, caramel, warm alcohol, and the coffee base of the FBS.

The palate is equally impressive, if not more so. Again, the extremely balanced maple bourbon character imparted by those barrels is a focal point. Founders really has these mastered. The maple is the initial impression, though the bourbon and vanilla follow close behind. The vanilla in the flavor is far more prominent than I could pull out in the nose. The complexity of the beer barrels notwithstanding is also more developed on the palate. Coffee, roast, and the toffee/caramel are still present, but tobacco and some dark fruits - dates especially - come to the party, too. Oak and more vanilla round this out. Wow.

Creamy and smooth on the palate, never giving a hint of alcohol on the palate. This artfully crafted beverage gives an all-over warmth to the lucky consumer, and leaves him thirsting for more. I can't wait until the next CBS tapping.
