Picked up a 4 pack of this on my way back from the BA Sexual Chocolate release. I won't compare it to that beer, but I will say that the FBS is a top 10 beer for a reason. It's excellent.

The pour is viscous and thick as you would expect. You can smell the chocolate in the nose. The taste is sharp, yet it has that sweetness that makes it taste so great. The consistency is just about what you would want from a stout.

I also love that this beer is available in 12 oz bottles, so that you can enjoy one without having to finish a whole 22oz. This is one of the best stouts out there, period.

Re-Review Notes:
Tulip Glassware
Bottled 10/13/13
Served at 40 degrees

Appearance:
Pours pitch black, allowing no light to pass through. A light brown head quickly dissolves to a thin ring. No noticeable carbonation. Decent lacing and light legging.

Aroma:
Rich, bitter chocolate and cocoa nibs up front backed by thick notes of roasted coffee. Hints of molasses. Not a lot to speak of beyond that, but it is very pleasing.

Taste:
Bitter chocolate hits you first with a subtle smoke character. Gobs of roasted malt and coffee ride out each sip. Light notes of molasses and vanilla. Roasted coffee aftertaste. Alcohol is well masked - I'd never guess this one at 8%.

Mouthfeel:
This is a full-bodied beer that will fill you up. Again, no noticeable carbonation. Smooth exit with a nice aftertaste.

Overall:
This is a fantastic beer for the cold winter days we have ahead. Easy to drink, but best enjoyed slowly. Highly recommend.
