Founders KBS (2017)

Founders KBS (2017)

This bourbon barrel aged stout is brewed out of Grand Rapids MI at the fantastic Founders Brewery. This is a limited release, and sports a hefty 11.9% ABV. Founders actually ages this beer for a year in oak bourbon barrels to get the amazing final product for us to enjoy! I would like to take a quick second and thank one of my best beer friends in this world Bill Engle for bringing me down a bottle from Wisconsin! Cheers buddy!

This beer pours out a nice thick dark black color with a light brown head. It laces nicely on the glass to show off its quality. The aroma of this beer has some wonderful chocolate and coffee tones to it, with a nice hint of the oak bourbon barrels that it was aged in. The taste of this beer starts off with the chocolate and coffee coming through before the slightly bitter bourbon barrel finish. I found this beer to have a fantastic thick mouthfeel, an amazing balance, and is very easy to drink despite the high ABV.

Overall this is an excellent beer, and I strongly recommend picking it up, if you can find a bottle. I want to thank Bill Engle again for helping the Beer Taster out and bringing me this one down!

Cheers!
