I Eat Danger In Kentucky For Breakfast Stout All Grain
"If this beer isn't part of a balanced, nutritious breakfast, then what is?" — Clone of Founders KBS Kentucky Breakfast Stout
Ah, the idyllic Kentucky sun peeking above the rolling blue silhouetted hills, with the morning dew flickering prismatic scintillations and the birds chirping a melody so lovely that—oh, hell, who are you kidding? The chance that you’ll be witnessing any sunrise or imbibing in a “Kentucky breakfast stout” is about as likely that you’ll NOT be dragging your sorry ass out of bed mid-afternoon with an ice pack on your head after last night’s tirade with this black beautiful beast. Time to face some facts, compadre: this brew’s “11.2” is not some optimistic suggestion that you’ll be waking any time in the AM—no, it’s the amount of alcohol that acts as the delivery system for the massively roasty coffee and chocolate infusion that is gently swaddled by velvety oats before the onslaught of oak and bourbon! So, if you want to play the optimist—that glass is half-full kind of guy—then go ahead and delude yourself that you’ll be partaking in this staggeringly delicious brew for breakfast, that is if breakfast falls somewhere in the deep afternoon!
Note: This recipe requires the brewer to supply 5 oz of coffee, 24 oz baker's chocolate and 24 oz bourbon.
