Kentucky Breakfast Stout
KBS 2015 Kentucky Breakfast Stout by Founders Brewing Company is such an amazing beer if you can even call it that, that I had to enjoy it like a frosty desert with its amazing bourbon and coffee flavors. The bourbon and coffee are very smooth even with all of the flavors of the smooth oak aged bourbon hitting you at once with such a high ABV of 11.2% yet finishing with a rich dark bourbon taste with hints of vanilla, brown sugar and raisin on top of a rich chocolate blend and still finishing with that bourbon coffee finish. Warning this is strong and you if you love stouts, chocolate and some of the best bourbon you’ve ever tasted this is the beer for you. Sadly this is a rare white rabbit but it is truly worth the hunt and and can be caught as Founders has increased their output of this beautiful beer from the original 24 bourbon barrels back in early 2000 to around 4,700 bourbon barrels for their 2015 release. Keep in mind Founders KBS, Kentucky Breakfast Stout has been aged just over 12 months in a bourbon barrel so just imagine having the best Chocolate Coffee Oatmeal Stout you could humanly imagine and then dropping a shot of the absolute best Kentucky Bourbon into the mix and that will bring you one step closer to imagining this amazing beer or desert based on how you look at it or should we say, enjoy it. If you find a friend willing to share a Founders KBS 2015 Kentucky Breakfast Stout, thank them and then ask for a ride home as this 12 ounce bottle has some serious kick.
