Sort of a quasi-FES. Certainly has the alcohol content and the look. Dark black, thin, off-white head.
Sweet, roast malt smell with hints of ground coffee and chocolate.
Slightly bittersweet taste. Vinous hints coupled with chocolate and coffee grinds. Definite alcohol burn to the taste.
Smooth, velvety mouthfeel. Slightly sour aftertaste to this, but overall a generally well done stout. It comes off more as an double stout than an FES, but still a very nice drink.

Sampled on nitrogen-tap at Redbones.
This stout poured jet black in color with very light brown, creamy, smooth, nitrogen foam that persisted a long time. The smell was dark malt with some licorice, dark mollasses, and hints of toffee and chocolate. The taste was darkly malty and lightly sweet with flavors of toffee, mollasses, dark caramel, and a touch of fruitiness. The hops were there but were somewhat buried beneath the onslaught of the malty flavors. The mouthfeel was very smooth, creamy, and silky with full body and moderate carbonation. The aftertaste was very pleasantly malty. This was a very, very nice stout and was easy to drink.
Serving type: nitro-tap

on tap at Redbone's
Bittersweet chocolate black with milk chocolate crema.
Sweet malty scent.
The taste--oh my! this is wonderful--almost like cask, light in the mouth, yet cremy velvet smooth. Such a silky dark maltiness, touched by smoke, a hint of alcoholic warmth, suggestions of port, and coffee overtones like a rich french roast ring in the changes.
Hope to see more of this.
