Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout 2019 is a pretty rare beer. Aged in Kentucky Bourbon barrels in a cave for over a year, it’s crammed full of rich flavours that make the KBS range one of the most well-known stouts in the craft beer world. Expect chocolate, coffee, vanilla and of course - whiskey, with a medium-thick body. It’s the perfect beer for ageing at home, and Beer Hawk employees have been known to keep them tucked away for multiple years to compare how the flavours change and evolve over time. We’re nerds like that.

Brewery Info

Originally brewing middle-of-the-road beers for a wide and not-terribly-engaged audience, Founders realised that they’d have to change if they wanted to survive. They started making bold and complex beers instead, launching themselves to craft beer fame.

From coffee-infused Breakfast Stout, bourbon barrel-aged Backwoods Bastard and a 15% barleywine called Bolt Cutter, you can’t accuse Founders of being dull. As well as brews that push the boundaries, their lower abv. range is a more accessible introduction and includes the excellent All Day IPA.

I was lucky enough to try this stout in the Beer Hawk bottleshop near Farringdon (London) and it was sensational. It has taken pride of place as the best stout I have ever had the pleasure of drinking, and I drink a lot of stout!
Still the best

Perfect barrelling, bourbon on the nose and subtle on the pallet.
I haven't done a head to head with the 2018 yet, but really enjoyed this one.
Still my favourite stout.

You can really taste the coffee with a hint of chocolate. Due to the 12% Abv best to stick to the one or maybe 2 for the brave, all in all a good beer!!
