4.28/5 rDev -1.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Duval glass. Batch #9.
A - pours an almost pitch black. Not as inky nor as thick as expecting. A nice medium brown colored head 2.5 finger tall builds from a firm pour. Head collapses fairly quickly leaving tracing of foam tat provides. Fair amount of lacing.
S - lots if coffee and cappuccino aromas to get you going right off the bat. Alcohol detected. Dark bakers chocolate.
T - lots of the same you would expect from the nose. A rush of coffee paired with dark chocolates. Lots of coffee. I would like this to rest a little and let the coffee reside a tad. It's like FBS's way bigger brother. Slightly bitter, mostly from coffee on the back end.
M - medium bodied with a fairly creamy feel. A nice warming affect from the booze.
D - fairly easy to drink for the alcohol and style.
Overall, a very nice stout that downtown get enough props. Coffee and chocolate pair well to make a nice drinking beer for this abv. Most of the barrel flavors evaded me but they may have been masked by the intense coffee flavors. Not much opened up as if warmed which was slightly surprising too. If you get a chance pick this up and give it a whirl.

3.94/5 rDev -9.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: Pours a pitch black color capped by an inch of tan foam; a smattering of lace is left behind
Smell: Ashy oak and burnt coffee beans with bittersweet chocolate undertones
Taste: Scorched black bread and "Charbucks" coffee, up front, with bittersweet chocolate building, in the middle; after the swallow, the Whiskey barrel treatment adds weight and a hint of vanilla; somewhat boozy in the finish
Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation; some warmth in the gullet
Overall: Normally, my reviews mark down beers for having to much sweetness but, in this case, I think the beer would have benefited from some sweetness in the malt to balance out all of the char and burnt flavors; not a bad beer but just my two cents
