Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.60%

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

This review reflects both a 2011 bottle enjoyed in 2013 and the 2014/2015 release. The maple adds a breakfasty smoothness that is incredible to enjoy. Throw in the barrel and this is an amazing treat. The second batch felt a little thinner, so no longer an "all 5s" beer, but still a top notch maple beer.
