Outstanding, every time, regardless where it's being poured. Bottled is a bit less smooth than draft, but not a bad thing. The individual flavors are more defined in the bottle. This beer put KBS in #2 position for me. But only by a quarter point. The word awesome has been used and abused and made commonplace, but, in the real world this beer is truly awesome.

Pours black with only a tiny ring of fizz rising to the top even after an aggressive pour straight into the glass. The tiny bit of fizz doesn't retain long, nor is there any lacing left behind. Aroma is jam packed with notes - bourbon, oak, coffee, molasses, caramel, and roasted malts. Quite the aromatic quality to this beer. It's loud, with the bourbon note being just shy of a boozy. Flavor profile is massive. Absolutely massive. Big, smooth bourbon notes hit first and linger throughout the flavor profile. Rich caramel, toffee, molasses, milk chocolate, and coffee provide a barrage of flavors, and yet don't step on the toes of each other. Bourbon is present, and while it nears a fleshy, and boozy quality, it manages to remain within balance. Mouth feel is thick, filling, velvety, and creamy. Overall, for those seeking bourbon and coffee in a thick, heavy presence - this is your beer. Despite the complexity of this beer in both the aroma and flavor profile, every note is struck well and given a full beat to ring out.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 16.9oz bottle. 2016 version.
