Thanks to mcallister for sharing the bottle.
Pours absolute black with chunks of sediment that can barely be seen. Chunky off white head that sticks a bit.
Smells of tons of coffee with a heavy dose of cream. Amazing. Some slight sweet chocolate as well.
Smooth as a well roasted coffee with a ton of cream. One of the creamiest beers I've ever tasted. Just a hint of chocolate to blend well with the coffee. Excptional mouthfeel, slick, dense, creamy and rich. Sets a very high standard.

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.

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.

Thanks to Chris @ Slowbeer

Pours a dark black with a really dark brown head. Good lacing.

Smell is an obscene amount of decadent chocolate fudge. There's also brown sugar, soy sauce, umami, more chocolate and rye. Amazing.

Taste is lots more earthy chocolate, more complex earthy/rye notes. The sweetness which I initially get on the palate gets swamped by a wave of bitterness. There's some great caramelised alcohol to finish and of course roast is a ubiquitous but subtle presence.

Mouthfeel is good with good thickness and viscosity.

Overall a fantastic beer. Worth the hype and the money. Very keen to try the -BA versions.

Hooray! Weasels finally get to do their bit for the betterment of beer. 500ml bottle best before 011212

Pitch black with the darkest head ever. Seriously ever! Thick without looking too viscous. Had to stop pouring part way through as the head was about to start spilling out. That and the sediment was getting a bit gluggy as I slowly tried to empty the bottle.
Head was fluffy and held together valiantly for such a high abv. Eventually setting to a thin dark lace leaving traces of its presence on the glass.

Aroma hints at all the individual ingredients listed on the bottle. Not the I can read it mind you. Mellow coffee combines with vanilla and an oak and alcohol character. Very soothing on a cold autumn night.

All the exotic ingredients seem to take a back seat and allow the base stout to shine most in the taste. Coffee bean and dark roasted malt certainly contribute. Not a huge impression from the alcohol but you wouldn't mistake this for your average stout. Dryness comes through in the finish but it contrasts to the huge amount of residual sugar.

Quite an interesting beer but not one I would consider as a regular. Big, complex and tasty for sure.
