Not near as good as bcbcs. Try them side by side. Not worth the hassle.

I did them side by side last Sunday. Bcbs certainly is more bourbon heavy, whereas kbs seemed like a coffee bomb. Doesn't make one better than the other as they taste different.

My opinion, at least. Then again, I had more hassle getting bcbs than I did getting kbs, even if I did get more of it.

I hate it when shops gouge there customers with over inflated prices for limited beers.
We have a fantastic local brewery here called Boneyard. They do not bottle or can. They just did a collabaration beer with Widmer called Blacklight IPA a 4.5% session style IPA. I thought kinda weired beer for Boneyard to be in on. They make mostly big beers. Went down to buy a few. 7.99 for a single session beer. I bought one just to try but wont pay that much for any more.

I think he meant compare it to bcbC(offee)s, which is a coffee bomb.

had it for the first time, and it was very very good. luckily in chicago i can still get plenty of bcs and i find it better. why lucky? because here, in chicago, i was told at the local binnys that kbs sold out IN ONE HOUR. ON A WEDNESDAY. that is just ridiculous. if founders is only able to make so little of it, then why bother releasing it nationwide. it makes no sense. it is not drumming up excitement or interest as there is hardly anyone that can even taste the damn thing. they need to up production or just make it a local limited release beer like dark lord.

I agree. I live in MI and can't find it to try it. My local beer store laughed at me when I asked if they ever even got any. Nope.
