Let me start by saying I am for sure an IPA/DIPA guy, but this beer knocks any DIPA or IPA I have ever had out of the water. In fact, it turned me into an advocate of stouts.

Dark brown/black pour. Mocha colored head. Smells of coffee and chocolate-caramel.

Tastes the way it smells. Absolutely mind blowing taste of sweet chocolatey coffee. The alcohol is almost completely masked by this dessert-esqe beverage. I received this in a trade, and immediately made a FT ISO thread to get more sent to me ASAP.

I don't care who you are or what you like, you will love FBS

Reviewed July 3, 2006 entered from notes.

Leaves its 12 oz stubby like sorghum from the syrup jar - thick, dark, and slow. A vigorous pour releases 3 inches of espresso foam colored head layered on top. Antique lace clings to the glass. Rocking the glass back and forth reminds me of one of those plexiglass wave toys one might have on a desk.

Odor of strong fresh Italian roast coffee and baker's chocolate but drier and sharper.

Wonderful flavors chase each other around my mouth and dance on my tongue.

Rich thick mouthfeel - absolutely wonderful! 5,5,5,5,5
