Bottle poured into a tulip glass. Beer pours a very dark and opaque brown with two fingers of milk chocolate brown colored creamy head. Head is mostly small bubbles that cascaded down on the pour as expected from an oatmeal stout, with a few large bubbles mixed in, with great retention before it slowly dissipates to a half a finger, leaving thick lacing trails on the glass. Really nice looking beer.

Nose is astringent roasted coffee, very sweet milk chocolate, fudge, molasses, and a bit of booziness.

Coffee roast is a bit nicer on the tongue, fruity and less astringent from being burnt. Nice light roasted bitterness upfront, sweet milk chocolate dominating mid tongue. Lots of lingering roasted bitterness, fruity coffee and milk chocolate on the finish. Not much booziness on the taste, but still a sipper with how bold the flavors are.

Full body, viscous with some light carbonation, really coats your tongue and mouth to contribute to the long finish. The coffee does really shine on this beer, rich, fruity and good.

appearance: yea, i'm biased to black beauties and this is one. Impressive head for a nearly 11% with nice lacing.
smell: Smells a lot like FBS, which means...great. Coffee and a dry richness.
taste: More of the same. Love me some FBS and this may have a little something extra.
drinkability: Seems if not a Holy War at least a firm disagreement amongst BA'ers over session vs big beers. In any case the skill in making a smooth big beer is becoming a wonderfully ubiquitous thing.

amateur review incoming!

Appearance: black and brown with a dark brown translucent edge. Little bit of head that dissipated nicely into the dark pool.

Smell: coffee and stouty malty goodness

Taste: rich coffee and yes, the oatmeal is present. The hops come through as does the malt and it winds up just a well-done good feeling taste. Little hint of alcohol on the aftertaste keeps this from a 5.0

Mouthfeel: Brown with a nice body. Yeah.

Drinkability: the aftertaste and the high abv stop it from perfection but on taste smell and mouthfeel alone this hits as one of the best I've had.

Three cheers!!

Serving type: on-tap

Poured into a tulip. After a weekend of disappointing beer, I need one that I know will be a homerun. Pours with a nice thick creamy mocha head that shrinks to about half an inch thick atop a pitch black body. Super sticky lacing.

The aroma is somewhat fruity, with a bit of dark cherry alongside the typical chocolate aromas.

The bitterness of the coffee shines through at the start and especially the finish. Just a touch of malt sweetness is there to mellow it out. The taste is a bit intense; for coffee lovers only.

This one is pretty thick. The carbonation is soft to medium, and brings out the bitterness of the coffee. This is a coffee bomb, but the coffee is tasty.

Undated bottle to pint glass the beer pours a thick oily black witha thin 1 finger dark mocha brown head, not much retention but a ton of lacing. The nose is rich though not as dominant as expected with espresso coffee tones, warm roasted barley, chocolate, vanilla, and a hint of the alcohol. The taste is just as the nose would indicate though fuller and richer. The espresso and sweet malt dominate though the vanilla and roast are prevalent. Full bodied and well carbonated the beer finishes smooth creamy and rich. Overall the beer is very good, a but pricey, but you pay for quality. Recommended.

Thanks JesseTheHutt, JRhode, Jhamel for this!!

A-black, tan head builds up methodically but continues to mushroom after the pour has stopped.

S- coffee, some sweetness, faint berry/fruit that I also picked up in the beer geek breakfast.

T- coffee, rich deep dark semi-sweet chocolate. Mild tang.

M- Very thick, carbonation comes through very fine with tiny bubbles, prickly.

D- good for a syrup.
