This creamy, luscious specialty brew by Founders is released every spring, and it’s well worth trying to hunt down. KBS is certainly one-of-a-kind, and with a strong bourbon flavor, encompassed by chocolate, vanilla, caramel, roasted malt and even some coffee, this brew is smooth, rich and certainly a sipper at 11.2% ABV. There’s a reason why this brew is so hard to find — on tap or in bottle.
