    ok they make a regular breakfast stout that is easier to come by, less alcohol, and

    you are one of few ppl to feel that way about the kentuck breafast, that stuff is great, one of the best i have ever had. so many beers are very different in the bottle as opposed to draft, i had that one the draft, had a lot of them in fact. small bar near boston had a stash and i think i drank almost all of them on them

    another beer i like is this:

    Tensux, the beer you last linked is the one I drank. I found it good, but not mindblowing.

    The beer I drink, I'm convinced, has at least 300 calories a regular bottle, or 500 calories per 22oz.

      what also might make the KBS so sought after is that they only make a couple thousand cases a year

        MMMMM!

        so good and actually cheap compared to some premium beers
        Just picked up a few of these. Looked for the Founders breakfast stout but was told that because of distribution qualms, it isn't available in South Carolina...

          OK, keep in mind this is from someone with no sense of smell.....

          The beer ain't bad at all. The bitter is good, a bit less than Heineken and St. Paulie. It is a tad thick, but not enough to coat the mouth/throat. It is salty enough to kill the sweet you get from the first 2 seconds of taste. 10% ABV leaves a warm fuzzy after a swallow.

          ...Damn I wish I could smell the coffee and chocolate..

            I like Old Rasputin.

            I don't like KBS because I'm not a huge fan of the over-the-top-roasted-coffee-bean flavored stouts.

            I like Imperial Stouts, though. If I didn't say it above, I'm a big Imperial Stout fan, DIPAs and Scotch Ales.

              I like my beer like I like my music. There are times and places for everything ever produced, from Gangster Rap to New Age Pop. (Which I own a little bit of both )

              While I sweat it out in the summer working outside or playing sports, nothing goes down better than a light, macrobrewed beer, the closer it is to water the better it is.

              During the winter months, my favorite for consumption during meals is Guiness, it doesn't have an overpowering taste and for me goes well with most of what I eat.

              For other occasions during the colder months, my favorite for just flavor is The Pike's Kilt Lifter, which is from the Pike Place Brewery in Seattle, WA, which I haven't tasted in about 4 years.

              But seriously, I like pretty much every beer. There are only a few that I can't really stomach drinking, and that's because they've been aged a little too long in wood that has been charred, making me feel like I'm imbibing liquid campfire.

              If I want to just get tanked, I normally grab some 24 ounce Steel Reserve's, and that stuff is kinda nasty.

              But we have a nifty place here in Columbus called the Surly Girl Saloon, they server a good chunk of beers that I've sampled all of which I really like, here's a list of their current offerings: http://www.surlygirlsaloon.com/booze...bcategory=Beer

              The only thing I don't like more than a wine snob is a beer snob. If it taste good, then it is good, and taste varies .

                I don't like it when they start talking about "essence of cherry" when there is no more a likeness of cherry there than licking the bottom of a boot.

                I can appreciate what some say, but some people just have overactive imaginations when it comes to food.

                  I'm totally with you there Ninja, I mean you pick up a bottle, the label talks about hints of peaches, mint and licorice, and when you drink it you can't taste any of it. I swear serious wine is made only for the 1% of the population that has heightened taste. The rest of use should just stick to two buck chuck at the local Trader Joes.

                    I think the problem is that they are trying to describe something a bit to ephemeral (insubstantial) a bit too closely. I can taste differences between different beers. Some taste like bold coffee, others more malty smooth. There are different bites to the bitterness, different heads, and different changes to the taste on first touch to after swallow. (some of the cheapest brews out there have the WORST aftertaste. Either nasty bitter or cheap and watery aftertaste of what was bold on the first sip).

                    It is when they try and get too specific that they miss the boat.

                    Just because you put in a bit of orange rind does not mean you can taste one bit of it (unless you have an orange allergy).

                      Got a bottle of Oak Aged Yeti today - awesome flavor!

                      Got a Pilsner Urquell - liked it.

                      Had a Guiness - was meh.

                        Guiness really depends on storage, serving temp, and where you get it.

                        I have had it when it tastes like tar, and others where it is light and creamy....

                        And I heard it is better in an actual Irish pub (in situ, not here...). the US has over-commercialized it. I don't trust any brew that has done that too much....

                            Just checked with the Charleston beer exchange and they confirmed that Founders has pulled out of the South Carolina beer market because of distribution problems.

                            T.T
