What a wonderful marriage of smells and flavors. Pours a deepest black with a thin, creamy mocha-colored head. The aroma is definitely coffee-centered, but the flavor brings a lot more to the table. In addition to the roasted and bitter coffee flavor, a wonderfully subtle malt sweetness and the earthiness of the oatmeal brings a terrific balance. The overall experience is still very much like a blend of a good dry stout with some fresh brewed java, but with the combination being better than the sum of the parts. I often drink my coffee black, so by comparison FBS goes down surprisingly smooth. I find it to be not nearly as heavy as it looks or as its stats would indicate, and it is dangerously drinkable. Meets and exceeds expectations.
