Poured 2013 vintage into snifter. Served at clear temp.
A- pours jet black with a dense thin beige head. Dark as they come
S- tons of dark chocolate, lots of dark roast coffee, lots of oak, bourbon, some vanilla, boozy, good amount of alcohol scent
T/M- first you get the taste of FBS, slams your mouth with dark chocolate and perfectly balanced coffee. The barrel aging kicks in just after, lots of whiskey, lots of oak but neither are over the top. Leaves your mouth with a perfect flavor of chocolate, coffee, and bourbon barrels. The texture is creamy and not bitter at all
O- this beer is amazing. The flavors compliment each other perfectly and there is a lot going on at one time. Along with the obvious listed flavors, you get subtle cinnamon, marshmallow, lactose, hint of smoke, some boozieness. Can't wait to do a side by side with my 2012. This is a perfect example of the style. Make sure to drink this just under room temp to make sure you get to enjoy every aspect of the beer.
