Founders Kentucky Breakfast Stout

This is a big bourbon barrel aged stout brewed by Founders in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Weighing in at 10% abv, this is aged in the barrel until it's deemed just right by the brewers. I've had samples of this a few times at festivals, and I'm glad to finally have a bottle in my hands, as this was an extremely limited production. Here we go!

After sampling this beer at various festivals, I'm glad to finally sit down to a bottle of it all to myself. Pours from the stubby brown bottle like an oil spill, thick and black as night, producing a half inch of dark tan creamy foam on top of the brew. Spotty sticky lacing is everywhere. Stellar. As my nose reaches the glass I'm assaulted by lush, rich fresh coffee alongside chunks of dark chocolate. Vanilla, caramel and woody tones peek through as well. The bourbon aroma is well integrated and adds a wonderful twist to the already awesome nose on this beer. Just smells so damn good.

First sip brings a wonderfully rich maltiness teeming with fresh brewed coffee and lushious chocolate. The flavor simply explodes when it hits the tongue. Notes of vanilla, caramel and a touch of nuttiness. Midway through each sip the bourbon flavors roll over the palate along with some underlying woody tones. A superb blend of flavors that come together to create one awesome coffee/chocolate/bourbon stout.

Mouthfeel is rich and chewy, but with a medium body and a certain smoothness. Goes down almost too easy with no evidence of the alcohol, except for the slight warming sensation in the belly. Simply an amazing beer that I would love to have on hand constantly if I could! A good evening sit and sip brew and another winner from Founders. Between this and the original Breakfast Stout....I'm in love.

Overall, I gave this kick ass brew a 4.8 out of 5. Such a wonderful beer.

Wow, that sounds like a great beer. I love stouts, the darker, richer, creamier the better.

Where did you manage to find a bottle of this? I haven't heard of it before, but I'm already a little disappointed thinking that I probably won't be able to find any near me (Los Angeles, CA).

Setting around at work browsing the next, I came across your site, read this article and decided I had to try it. As I work at a beer distributor (McKean Beverage), it shouldn't have been hard, but alas, no Kentucky Breakfast to be found. Luckily, I found a case of "Dirty Bastard" on the beer snob wall, and after reading your post decided that it's going home with me for the weekend. P.S.: Love the site - keep up the great work!

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
