Actually had this for breakfast at Hops in the Hills this summer. Also had on draft side by side with BCBS- they were both tied in the race for awesome.

After a 6 year vertical I can say that this is best fresh to one year old. After that the flavors fall off some, but they are all still very good. I like KBS aged about 6 months as the coffee has faded some and the coffee is taking over.
