I think this beat KBS when I had it side by side - but it was long enough ago that I can't really recall.

On tap and really quite good. Substantial coffee flavor with hints of chocolate and moderate Bourbon notes.

12 oz bottle poured into snifter

A: deep dark black very little head

S: light coffee, some roast, tobacco

T: lots of coffee some nice roast a little chocolate maybe a very very faint bourbon taste and some nice oat tastes.

M: Very thin almost a little watery but the taste lingers which is nice

O: this beer has a great taste but the bourbon is almost nonexistent. The body is thin too but it really tastes good that coffee maybe muted with the bourbon makes this so mellow

Exceptional BA Imperial Porter. Has a creamy mouthfeel - without being too heavy or syrupy. Aroma is vanilla bean and mocha. An outstanding beer with chewy oats and a warm bourbon barrel afterglow. This is excellent, from the opening of the bottle to the last sip.
