Founders Brewing – KBS Stout Float

Now this is seriously the easiest thing in the world you can make.  All you need are:

Your Favorite Vanilla Ice Cream

A bottle of stout (any stout will do, but a flavored, milk, or chocolate stout will be the best)

Now all you need to do is take 2-4 scoops of your favorite vanilla ice cream into a glass, and add about half the bottle of stout into it.  Then just take a spoon and stir it around and enjoy.  I went overboard with Founders KBS, a 11.2% big boy, and I tell you what, that beer is already too easy to drink for 11%, but this made it SUPER easy to drink.


There you have it: Founders Brewing KBS Stout Float.

My beer for this was:


Beer Name: Kentucky Breakfast Stout (KBS) – 2013
Brewery: Founders Brewing (Grand Rapids, MI)
Beer Style: Bourbon Barrel Aged Stout
ABV: 11.2%
IBUs: n/a
Size: 12 oz. bottle
Beer Advocate: 100
RateBeer: 100

 Seriously a world class beer



Super duper dark pour, with a dark tan head on it.



Another beer I could bathe in the smell of.  Amazing coffee, chocolate, and bourbon scents to this.  Lots of  heavy roasted malts.



Okay, so I just had this as a float first, and I’ve had this before, but I’ve aged it about 10 months now, and it it is just incredibly rich and delicious.  First sips include chocolate/cocoa and then followed quickly by a super dark coffee flavor, then finished with a nice bourbon taste.  Easy to drink for 11%.  Too easy to drink.



So good, seriously a world class beer with world class flavors.  Not much I can say about this other than, if you ever see it please pick it up and drink it.  Or save it.



5 out of 5


Until the next beer:
