    Not surprised by the price of this, I suppose.
    I personally haven't had one yet but a close friend whom I trust did not finish his bottle...

    Lizard was undrinkable. had some hopes for this one. Frootwood should be a trainwreck.

    Mosaic promise on tap at Founders and Mosaic Promise out of a bottle are completely different. Still good out of the bottle but man is it good on tap

    15 packs of rotating crushables is a great move by Founders.

    Eh...KBS just is what it is. It's good enough to try every year, but it's never great and it's never terrible.

    Maybe KBS will turn into BA mocha. So much coffee this year.

    After sitting out and warming up for an hour, I thought it was great.

    I thought it was all chocolate this year, but absolutely NO barrel which blew my mind. Very little difference from regular breakfast stout.

    Will I drink the hell out of it still? Absolutely

    Happy to have had one, will have another next year. Spend that money on BBB instead.

    It's devolved into a better than average coffee stout that should be about $12 a six pack not $22 a four pack.
