Founders Brewing - Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS)

Founders Brewing - Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS)

Very long day of picking and packing for the shop, but managed to get a nice walkies in the sub zero temperatures before James picking out a nice stout for my journey back. Met the missus on the train and as a whisky fan she was more than happy to help with this blog.

The brown bottle has a weathered parchment like label that would look good on any spaghetti western movie...really fits the bill.

First smell is just thick melted chocolate flowing out before that bourbon kick makes an appearance. My following excited swig didn't leave me disappointed as those smells were combined perfectly in my mouth before a light coffee edge showed up. The balance is just brilliant as that smooth chocolate taste is fused with a whisky kick that almost gives you two full drinks on one. Couldn't recommend this enough and am stunned that I'm unexpectedly becoming a stout fan!

Happy monday everyone, and cheers!🍻 Han

To be honest, a shit can opening, but my saviour came in the rich malty smells that were produced with the immediate picture of chocolate soaked sponge fingers coming into my thoughts. The first swig doubled down on that with a lovely tiramisu/brownie coating of the mouth, and quite frankly a liquefied malt-chocolate dessert!
