Year of Beer Paintings – Day 179

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!

The original painting sold. You can purchase a limited-edition print at my Etsy shop.
