Poured into my Stone IRS tulip

A - Inky black with a thick, cratered mocha head. Leaves sticky lacing on the side of the glass.

S - High-quality coffee, dark roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate and the faintest whiff of smoky charcoal.

T - More dark (almost burnt) malts, fine coffee and dark chocolate. Finishes with a definite smoky flavor that balances out the bitterness nicely. Very well crafted, and the coffee is obviously of the highest pedigree.

M - Slightly thinner mouthfeel then I expected for this type of beer, I wish it was a bit fuller. However, the carbonation is perfectly prickly. There is an almost oily quality to this beer, it truly coats the palate and you can taste the roasted malts for some time after you swallow. ABV is hidden well.

D - Nicely drinkable, this is hitting the spot right now. This definitely lives up to the over-the-top hype and is certainly the tastiest weasel poop I've ever had. Kudos to Mikkeller for taking an extreme ingredient and crafting such a wonderful and unique brew!

appearance: yea, i'm biased to black beauties and this is one. Impressive head for a nearly 11% with nice lacing.
smell: Smells a lot like FBS, which means...great. Coffee and a dry richness.
taste: More of the same. Love me some FBS and this may have a little something extra.
drinkability: Seems if not a Holy War at least a firm disagreement amongst BA'ers over session vs big beers. In any case the skill in making a smooth big beer is becoming a wonderfully ubiquitous thing.

A wonderfully interesting beer. Intense coffee note like a shot of sweetened espresso. Dense but not cloying or heavy. Undercurrent of barely perceived spice - cinnamon the most identifiable. Full bodied with a firm lasting almost-but-not-quite chocolate finish. The novelty factor of the coffee bean "processing" lends a whimsy factor.

$15 bottle purchased from Monument Liquor in Concord. Enjoyed prior to RBSG, review from notes.

Pours between black and darkest brown with a huge dark mocha head. Smells of mocha, coffee and dark chocolate, smoke, and cane sugar. Tastes like a café mocha, delicious rich coffee that is intense yet uncannily smooth. Roasty biscuit finish. Full body, slick with medium carbonation.

This was a beer I had been looking forward to, and I liked it a lot more than I had anticipated. Such a rich, smooth coffee flavor in this, it is leagues above and beyond the Beer Geek Breakfast. Would love to have this again anytime.

A: poured into a snifter to a pitch black with a little tan head that quickly fades to a collar around the glass
S: smells rich with notes of coffee, dark roasted malt, chocolate, charred wood, molasses and alcohol
T: tastes of quality coffee, dark malt, a bit of chocolate, some charred wood. aftertaste is bitter roasted malt, more coffee and a bit of wood char
M: silky smooth and full bodied with very soft carbonation that fights to make its presence known
O: a quality beer. great complexity and very smooth with not even a hint of alcohol in the flavor. it's very impressive
