Elegant. Well-crafted. Full of depth. The 2017 Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout is so good it almost melts in your mouth. Aged in Kentucky Bourbon barrels for a year, this chocolate and coffee-infused Imperial Stout boasts creamy and smooth flavours of milk chocolate, coffee and vanilla. The bourbon notes are rather evident and brings with it a nice warming character. Its medium-full body is viscous thanks to oats but it feels lighter than it is because of a light, dry finish. Age it or drink it now: either way, it's a beauty!

  1. A real wow beer Review by Good head
    Rating

    Very dark like treacle in colour and thick in consistency with a foamy head. Has a very strong coffee flavour with hints of chocolate that combine to make an outstanding flavour. Couple this with the flavour of the whiskey barrels and you get a real winner. Has a flavour that lingers and well worth buying. (Posted on 26/04/2017)

  2. Worth the hype Review by Beebo
    Rating

    pours black with medium long-lasting head. Nose of coffee, vanilla, bourbon, and chocolate. Flavor to match that just coats the entire palate. Not much else to add to this classic! (Posted on 25/04/2017)

  4. One of the best Review by twacker
    Rating

    There are few things in life that are certain; death, taxes and KBS. Founders KBS is what all imperial stouts wish they were. Amazing roast chocolate and coffee flavours with a lovely hint of bourbon. A+ beer. (Posted on 24/04/2017)

  5. Amazing Review by Mr.B
    Rating

    Got a bottle of thIs to see what all the hype was about. Well this is one amazing stout. Great aromas of bourbon notes, chocolate and coffee. The aromas lead to similar notes of smooth rich indulgent taste. All very well balanced. A nice treat to finish the evening with. Already ordered some more. (Posted on 22/04/2017)

  8. Rich and Indulgent Review by Ian_atc
    Rating

    Definitely a beer to take your time over - rich flavours of coffee and chocolate give this stout a complexity to savour. Having bought a case of 12 it will be interesting to see how the beers mature over the next year - am allowing myself one per month! (Posted on 20/04/2017)

  9. Hype, Anticipation, must try Review by Bruce
    Rating

    These are all some of the things I have seen written about this beer. This was my first bottle of KBS but not my first time on imperial stouts or indeed barrel aged.
    Is it worth the price! Yes but in my opinion there are breweries doing beer just as good as this. Vibrant Forest are one.

    It is big on coffee with that fresh green taste rather than the roasted flavour of something like Modern Times Black House, big dark prune flavour comb through as well.

    Great beer nevertheless and I have a 2016 and 2017 which I will age and see what happens to them over the next year or two. (Posted on 19/04/2017)

  10. Wonderfully tasty Review by stefcha
    Rating

    I've tended to stay away form darker drinks but I've been giving them more of a chance of late and this sounded very interesting and was highly recommended by a friend so I had a go, and bought, er, just the 12. On arrival I noticed this batch is 11.9% so definitely something to sip and savour, and that I did. The aroma and taste was overwhelming at first but I soon settled into it and it passed the time very nicely, after that I dug out a not-insubstantial triple coffee porter and it tasted of almost nothing in comparison to the KBS. I've only had one other bottle since and had it very slightly cooler (first was plain room temp) and I enjoyed that one even more, there's just so much flavour to it all tied together so seamlessly. Lovely stuff. (Posted on 18/04/2017)

    Having heard lots of good reports I was eager to try this. It was everything I was expecting and more. Now for the long wait for next years edition. (Posted on 14/04/2017)

    Not a huge stout fan but bought this on reviews alone. Lived up to its reputation and more! (Posted on 10/04/2017)

  15. Can I rate this higher than 5 Stars? Review by Young_Team
    Rating

    Pours black-ish with a small tan head. Aroma is very boozy; coffee, whisky, oak, sweet malt, and some dark chocolate. Taste is similar, but bigger; whisky, coffee, roast, bittersweet dark chocolate, and oak. Just a hint of vanilla - less than expected. Boozy finish with some lingering coffee and some resulting light bitterness. (Posted on 10/04/2017)

  16. Wow Review by UK Beer Network
    Rating

    A very good beer this - heavily flavoured with whiskey throughout. Strong, boozy, thick stout with great aroma and sweetness throughout. Wow! (Posted on 03/04/2017)

  17. Too expensive Review by Rich
    Rating

    Great beer but same price in shops round Southampton so don't see point in buying it from here ? (Posted on 30/03/2017)

  18. Lives up to the hype Review by McSpanner
    Rating

    I'd read a lot about this beer and thought "it couldn't be that good". I was right -it's better. I'm only sorry I didn't order more as when I went back to re-order it was already sold out. At least the head brewer has released the recipe so I can have a crack at recreating this one at home. One of the best stouts I've ever tasted. (Posted on 19/05/2016)

  19. Great stout all around Review by Beer Nerd
    Rating

    This is a fantastic stout. Smooth, with coffee and chocolate flavors. I think there are probably a few stouts that are better, but not many

  20. Beautiful beer Review by Pazzi
    Rating

    I first tried this beer at this years "Craft Beer Rising" event at the old Trumans brewery in the East End of London last February. It was a smasher!
    So, I knew what I was letting myself in for when I bought these bottles of nectar.
    Honestly, the best beer I have ever tasted.
    Had to get a cab back to London Bridge Station!
    Never thought I'd be able to buy this beer in the UK as the brewer said it is usually sold out before its on the market.
    Ordered it one day, and arrived double quick time! Amazing service with text and e mails tracking my order, brilliant!!!!! (Posted on 25/06/2015)

  21. A little extra Review by Nick
    Rating

    Further to my review, I've been joined by a few friends on a couple of these. Without fail, everyone liked them. That's no small thing for such an unusual beer. (Posted on 23/06/2015)

  22. Very special Review by Nick
    Rating

    I've had many beers where the quality of the description far outweighs that of the taste. Not this time. This beer is very special indeed. All of the flavours come through, but in a supremely balanced manner. It's certainly no lightweight beer (and I could only manage one at a sitting); however the experience is like no other.
