A: Jet black and perfect

S: Smells like bourbon, this is the booziest smelling beer I have ever smelt

T: I swear the other KBS's I had were better and not as boozy

M: Not as thick as I like 11.2% beers to be

O: I am going to open another KBS soon so I will update my review. I didn't rate this as low as I probably should have based on this one bottle, I know this is a better beer.
