KBS! Stout for breakfast! Seriously, I was going to drink this last night but my wife warned me that if I drank this beer without her, she would… well, I won’t go into the details. She came home too late last night after a long day of guiding visitors around Alaska, so here I am doing my part sipping on 6 oz of beautiful coffee and chocolate Kentucky Breakfast Stout at 10 AM so I can write this blog post about it.
Rich and malty, with a bitter bite, and a nutty flavor. At 70 IBUs, the bitterness is masked by the malt. The nutty flavor reminds me of coconut beers; must be part of the barrel aging at cave temperatures. This beer is thick on your tongue creating a blanket of pleasure. I can see why it is one of the most sought-after beers in the Midwest! Thanks Patrick for mailing it to me, this was a special treat!
Cheers to Founders! I am glad I found out about your brewery through this project! I hope you keep on making KBS! I know it is probably a labor of love, especially paying for the cave real estate! I now understand why there is limited availability of this one, as it is obviously hard to make a beer this special!
