Just getting into this series, and I've yet to be disappointed. Went into the Java (2012) with unreasonably high expectations:

A - Monolithic black, with a surprisingly full tan head.

S - Vanilla, hazelhut, espresso and massive baker's chocolate, with notes of black cherry, pipe tobacco and toasted coconut. Each swirl conjures fresh pipesmoke and molasses.

T - All of the above, but accented with some fruit - fig and blackberry preserves - and something like peanut butter. The taste is more like dark chocolate mousse than coffee (though admittedly the coffee might have faded with time).

M - Heavy, sticky and hot on the tongue.

This is what I'm talking about. I wouldn't mind taking up permanent residence in this bottle. Not to speak ill of everyone's favorite coffee stout, but I'd take Eclipse Java over BCBCS any day of the week.
