Had a glass last night at the local bottle shop. My first time having it on tap and all I can say was delicious.
A – Super dark black with a nice 1 finger toffee colored head. Really good lacing and head for the entire drink.
S – Fresh roasted / brewed coffee but not over powering. Slight hints of chocolate in there too but the coffee was on top.
T – Light coffee and chocolate followed by roasted malt sweetness. The flavors are perfectly paired which makes this beer really easy to drink.
M – Super smooth and creamy, goes down so well. Carbonation was medium, no bite present form the carbonation. Medium bodied could drink this all day long.
O – This a one of my favorite go-to stouts. So rich and creamy smooth, ages well. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to try it.

12oz bottled on 11/14/11, poured into a tulip glass.
A- Pours midnight black with a 1/2-finger tan head. A tiny bit of light gets through the edge showing dark brown tint. The head retention is decent and there is a little bit of lacing.
S - Boom! Espresso! This is probably the freshest FBS I've had, and the coffee aroma is slammin'. There is a definite cocoa aroma and roasty malt behind the coffee.
T - Just like the nose, the coffee is intense in the flavor as well. Coffee dominates the front, with subtle molasses and chocolate sweetness showing up a bit later. The roasted and slightly smokey malts are present in the finish. Mostly roasted malt bitterness in the finish.
M - A medium bodied beer that is exceptionally smooth and creamy. Pleasant carbonation that is on the lighter side. Slight alcohol warmth.
O/D - This is the freshest FBS I've had, and the coffee character of the beer in this state is amazing. I could easily drink this for "breakfast".
