This is another beer from Scot at http://blog.twobeerdudes.com/ that I have been looking forward to. Heres to hoping it lives up to the great things I have heard about it.
Beer #95 is Founders KBS by Founders Brewing Company. KBS stands for Kentucky Breakfast Stout. Stout for breakfast? Sounds OK to me. A Kentucky Breakfast Stout from Michigan? Why not. This American Double/Imperial Stout has a hefty ABV of 11.2% and is aged in oak bourbon barrels.
Would you be surprised if I told you this brew was a dark brown, probably black, with a very little brown head? Well it was and that dark liquid smelled like chocolate, some vanilla, coffee, roasted malts, and a bit of alcohol. It was a wonderful aroma indeed. All of those aromas were distinctly found in the taste. Add a bit of alcohol warming sensation and an aftertaste of chocolate with a creamy smooth slightly sticky mouthfeel and you have one fine drink. Even with the high ABV, this is fairly easy to drink and I think should be enjoyed nice and slow. ”So take me down slow and easy”…sorry, I started singing an old Whitesnake song there. Good thing you can’t hear me sing but I think I sound wonderful but that just may be the KBS talking.
Not much more to say about this other than it was absolutely delicious! I wish I had another right now. Highly recommended…grab it if you can and enjoy!
