4.09/5 rDev -3.8%
Big thanks to JebSinger for this one. Relatively fresh bottle, so I am excited to crack it open.
So, this pours a legit pitch black. A tan head dissapates pretty quickly. Leaving no lacing, which I found surprising. First sniff is a big boozy one. With hints of roastiness.
Mouth feel is chewy, but not overly so. Like it has the feel you expect from a RIS, BUT, it leaves a clean feel, unlike similar beers.
Taste is pretty impressive. Right up front, a nice roasted coffee flavor. Strong, but not over baring, but slightly bitter. A sweetness then rolls to the side of your tongue. A little bit of smokiness then comes in the aftertaste. Overall, it mixes really well together. Nothing over powers anything else. Not overly z sweet like some RIS, nor pointlessly bitter from the roast or over hopping.
Great beer grab it for a nice, 8 degree night

Bottle from Josh. Thanks dude! Served in a snifter.
A - Tan foam settles to a collar, partial cap, and tiny specks of lacing. Black body with a glint of brown at the edges of the glass.
S - It's definitely coffee-infused, with supplemental notes of roast, dark chocolate, and caramel. The combination of coffee and sweetness definitely has it verging towards 'double-double' territory rather than straight black coffee.
T - Coffee is a bit more faded in the flavor profile (not sure when this bottle was released). Malt and grain character emerges, with flavors of dark chocolate, vanilla, a light dash of molasses, and a hint of smoke.
M - Chewy, sticky, medium-full body, with a light grittiness in the finish and a low level of lingering stickiness. Minimal alcohol presence.
D - A serviceable medium-high ABV coffee stout that is pretty easy to down for the style. I've been slightly underwhelmed by the Fulton offerings I've had; solid beers, no doubt, but not consistent with the high ratings I've seen. Would try this again on-tap if I knew it was fresh, but wouldn't actively seek it out.

750 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Black with a nice khaki head. Lasts quite a while. Very wispy with a medium collar..
Smell - The coffee has a sharp aroma. Green peppery. Some chocolate.
Taste - Strong coffee and dark chocolate. The coffee isn't as peppery, but it's still got that green flavor. Strong dark chocolate. Sweet.
Mouthfeel - Medium carbonation. Medium body. Sharp coffee flavor.
Overall - Nothing subtle here. Decent though.
