The regular Breakfast Stout is great, but not in the same tier as KBS.

Well, that's good to know. Most of what I try to seek out comes from this very thread, and I know the KBS has been the big name recently. I haven't made an effort to look for it, but I'd sure like to try some if I ever do see it.

breakfast stout is a great go-to. i like to age it for a few months. generally has a lot of coffee when fresh.

Also good to know, thanks! I'm not a coffee drinker (my Colombian wife is desperate to convert me), but I'm trying to expand my beer palate. I've definitely had more stouts and IPAs this year than I've had up until then, that's for sure :lol:

Same here. I'm down to my last one and I'll need to replenish soon. Honestly, I had KBS the other day and I think I like the SMS better. I think I'll continue to pick one or two up a year, but a case of SMS for $80 vs. $8-$9 a bottle for KBS... No brainer for sure.

I wish SMS was easier to come by around here for anyone not named halftonegraphics...

Regular Breakfast Stout sits on the shelves up here forever. I know it's seasonal and not really limited, but I feel like it should sell faster than it does considering the quality.

And now I want a beer.

My best find recently was a 4-pack of Sixpoint Hi-Res. I like regular Resin a bit more, but I'm really glad I got to try the IIIPA, too. Hi-Res is good if you're looking to get hammered. It's almost 11% and is very easy to drink.

I've seen quite a bit of Sunday Morning Stout around here in the past. Sounds like that's another I need to try.

I might have to try a fresh Breakfast Stout tonight just to know what it's like, then save the others.

Any of you Milwaukee/MN/Chicago dudes enter the Central Waters Ardea Insignis lotto? Seems like they got a lot more entries than they were anticipating. Welcome to the world of dummy email accounts, CW!
