Founder’s Kentucky Breakfast Stout

kbs

Just got my shipment of Founders KBS goblets.. so what better time than now to crack one open?!

Full Review:

Final Rating: 4.64/5
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

Poured at cellar temperature from a 12 oz bottle into a Founders KBS snifter glass. Purchased in North Providence, RI.

Appearance- Pours a deep brown color that is translucent on the pour but opaque and black once in the glass. The head is modest and brown, reducing to a ring of foam. Leaves a little lacing.

Smell- Super fudgy.. chocolate brownies with hot fudge, cocoa, vanilla, bourbon, coffee beans, semisweet chocolate. Some booze.

Taste- The first touch of the tongue reveals a sweet butterscotch, bourbon, caramel, vanilla bean flavor that meshes perfectly with milk chocolate and coffee notes. The finish is absolutely fantastic with a roasted, charred, nearly burnt malt flavor.

Mouthfeel- Thick but smooth, rich, velvety and smooth. Low carbonation. Milky.

KBS did not let me down.. such an amazing beer that is rich, flavorful, and complex without being overly boozy or cloying. Lives up to the hype.
