Thanks to dujayhawk for this particular bottle! Reviewed from notes. Poured from bomber into a Tampa Bay Brewing Company snifter.
A: Very dark brown, opaque, with a tan thin ring of foam and low visible carbonation.
S: Sweet roasted malts, coffee, lactose creaminess, pipe tobacco and cacao.
T: Follows the nose well - flavors of coffee and lactose, with dark roasted malts with less bitterness than expected, sweet leather, a touch of vanilla, some tobacco, and maybe some almond nuttiness (though that could be the power of suggestion). Hang is mostly residual sweetness from the malt bill.
M: Full-bodied but not really thick. Sticky mouthfeel, fairly low carbonation sensation, and the fairly hefty ABV is well-hidden.
O: I thought this was pretty good, and a surprisingly easy drinking beer for a big stout. Not perhaps a personal favorite, but still definitely worth a try.

This beer has lots of complex flavors.
Pours a dark beer. Has no carbonation forming. Aroma is of chocolate, fortified wine. Taste is very complex. Has vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and some yeasty element that makes it taste like a biscotti. It is not a bitter beer, it is a bit sour. Borderline heady. Mouth feel is syrupy.
Serving type: on-tap

I loved this friggin' beer. I'll get around to writing real reviews at some point (I'll come back and edit) but I wanted to point out how much I enjoyed this beer. I'm not sure I was expecting such a brilliant flavor, and though I was expecting a "good beer", this blew me away, unannounced! Yes, very similar to KBS in my humble opinion. Delicious, fabulous coffee flavors alongside the wonderful roasted notes.
(Cannot wait to try this barrel-aged. I honestly can't fathom how amazing that beer will be...it may let me down in a way as I've built this beer itself up so high)
