I previously stated that Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout is the Breakfast Stout aged in bourbon barrels.  It is aged in bourbon barrels but it seems that the beer recipe is not the same as the regular Breakfast Stout.  I might as well also note that it is in the top ten beers on BeerAdvocate.  One of the beers ahead of it is Founders' own Canadian Breakfast Stout.   Here is a description of CBS you can find online in several sources: "Founders Breakfast Stout aged in Kentucky whiskey barrels that were also used by a small maple syrup maker. The beer is then aged underground in the town's local mine. Maple & whiskey soaked wood, Sumatra and Kona coffee beans breakfast stout. Damn. What else can you say?"

Apparently they had it at Kite and Key, but not when I was there.  Damn.  At least I had the regular KBS.  I don't know if I've ever had a BeerAdvocate top 10 before.

  1. I really enjoyed this beer--it wouldn't be a regular stop for me, but great at 11 AM!
