look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

a: dark black, lets just the smallest amount of light through. dark tan 2 finger head that fades quick

s: its 2013, i'm drinking the 2012 vintage. pungent coffee beans punch you in the face...almost like spicy. dark chocolate, roasted malt, and a milky sweetness

t: i think the age may have mellowed out the coffee a bit (i've never had a fresh one). still...wow thats smooth! roasted coffee beans mixed with dark chocolate and oat. sweet dark berries, and a nice creaminess, probably due to the oats. there is a slight bitterness, but i can't tell if it comes from the roasted bean flavor or any kind of hop presence. there is a slight bit of coconut on the backend. you don't taste any alcohol, but you feel a slight tingle in the mouth

m: on the lighter side of full. it coats your mouth and hangs around for a while

o: keep in mind that this is a year old bottle. still a nice coffee stout (i do love coffee stouts). i want to get my hands on a fresher bottle, because i want to see if it makes a difference in the intensity of coffee flavor. its still really smooth, but i'd take FBS over this if it was between the two

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance- beautiful dark pour with a half a finger of dark brown foam on top. completely opaque.

Smell- lots of coffee olives some vino mixed in. maybe a bit of dark chocolate.

Taste- velvety smooth rich coffee and a slight malt sweetness. slight resiny hop at the back end , but this drinks like a coffee more than it drinks like a beer.

Mouthfeel- like a mouthful of hot coffee and oats. soft silky texture a touch of alcohol warmth. Its done in a pleasing way.

Overall- a tasty coffee oatmeal imperial stout. It has done the best so far in combining coffee oatmeal and imperialness that I have ever tasted. I think a lot of beers/ breweries would get hung up on one aspect of that combo but all these flavors play very nice together.
