Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

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.

Had to change my rating after having this 3 times on draft during KBS week. The first review was based on having a bottle June '14 that was incredibly sweet. This was one of the best, if not the best, beer I've ever had. The aroma did not knock me over so I'll ding that a little to prevent this from being a perfect 5.
