Founders KBS is a bourbon barrel aged version of Breakfast Stout, and it's great. Delicious. Remarkable. It's jet black and pours with absolutely no head at all. The aroma is huge, simultaneous chocolate and vanilla and coffee. The flavor is very much like Founder's Breakfast, with an intense dark chocolate and coffee combination, but over and behind and around all of it is a rich bourbon quality that brings out walnuts and candied fruit and dark bread. There isn't much heat until after the swallow, when a little shows up on the exhale. I love this stout and I hope I can find it again.
