CBS was born when we stumbled upon some bourbon barrels that had previously housed maple syrup. We opted to put the same base beer as KBS, an imperialized version of Breakfast Stout, in the maple barrels and, after one taste, we knew we had something special. Rich maple syrup, roasted coffee and velvety chocolate meld together in what can only be described as a transcendental drinking experience.

Canadian Breakfast Stout (CBS) is the epitome of why we launched the Backstage Series: to bring some of our most sought-after beers, which have been available primarily at the taproom or at a few select events, to a much larger audience. Canadian Breakfast Stout is an Imperial Stout brewed with a blend of coffees and imported chocolates, then aged in spent bourbon barrels that have most recently been aging pure Michigan maple syrup.

Founders CBS, or Canadian Breakfast Stout, is one of the brewery's most iconic barrel-aged stouts, right up there with KBS. Part of Founders' Barrel Aged Series and limited in release, CBS is an imperialized version of Founders' Breakfast Stout, brewed with chocolate and coffee, that's then aged in Bourbon barrels which recently held maple syrup. This is one that's well worth the hunt, folks. Dark and brooding in appearance, it leads with intense scents of chocolate malt, roasted coffee and bittersweet cocoa that are hit with hints of vanilla bean, maple cream, caramelized turbinado sugar and boozy woodspice. Those notes carry through to the full, lush and smooth palate, with a creamy texture that's carried by just enough carbonation. The finish is complex and enduring, and this is one for the cellar that will only continue to develop and evolve over the next five years or more.
