12oz, bottled 11/18/11, trade extra courtesy of Trystero (thanks!).
A - black, with finger thick khaki head that settles into what looks like a bubbling pancake that's ready to flip.
S - Coffee, coffee, and more coffee. Smells like fresh-ground, dark roasted beans. High quality coffee, too - the "Don't f'ing 'Jimmy' me, Jules!" kind.
T - High quality, fresh brewed coffee up front and hangs around. Alcohol is noticeable on the finish. A tart sweetness I can't quite place, but not unenjoyable.Hops play a quick game of Whack-a-Mole, popping in and out. There's a nice sweetness somewhere in there but it's buried by the coffee and alcohol.
M - Light-medium body balanced with medium carbonation. Tingly, tacky finish.
O - Finally got to pop my FBS cherry and glad I did, although with all that coffee presence it's the wrong stout for drinking after midnight like I did. Saving the rest of my bottles for weekend breakfast/brunch hours. Would like to see how this one cellars.

12oz into a snifter, bottled 11/09/13
Pours pitch black with a finger of mocha colored foam. Good retention and lacing, no carbonation coming up from the sides of the glass
Smells of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolates, some vanilla, dark fruits, toffee, and finishes with some alcohol. Everything comes together pretty well
Taste is with the nose pretty well, strong upfront coffee and dark chocolate along with figs, cherry, and other dark fruits. Vanilla and toffee on the finish, ending with a splash of alcohol
Feel is moderately bitter with a heavy body. Finishes pretty dry, alcohol concealed well but enjoyably present
Overall glad I got to try this. Three more sitting in the cellar
