Founder's Brewing - specifically KBS - started my journey in craft beer many years ago. Basically, I learned it was rare and highly sought-after and thus - decided I must try it. Founder's released this today: https://www.beeradvocate.com/community/threads/founders-new-barrel-aged-series-release-dkml.503693/ Sounds boring. Malt liquor?! You may have a different opinion and thats fine, but mine is "next". I hope Im wrong. This all got me wondering though...with much rumor that CBS will likely be the December release of Founder's Barrel Aged Series, what will the reaction be here in Texas? Ive never had CBS - so I will definitely be ISO. But maybe this is a classic issue of hype vs. reality. Correct me if Im wrong, but wasnt CBS released in 2009? Or was it 2011? Either way - long time ago. Many new barrel-aged beers have come along. Additionally, a lot of great BBA stouts now exist w/ varying degrees of difficultly to obtain. It almost begs the question: "With all of today's craft-beer competition, will the value of CBS be dimished with another release - thus opening it up to present day comparisons?"
