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.

Exceptional smooth imperial with an impressive maple finish. The bourbon aging shows up nicely while not overpowering.

This is an event. Appreciate the limited dimensions when done well, however not something I will search out as I think KBS is more drinkable. Bit glad rto have tried it.
