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

Thanks to TomDecapolis for sharing this one...
Appears a midnight black with a small tan head that slowly fades into a fluffy cap. Rings of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of roasted barley, coffee, creamy vanilla, cocoa, and ripe fruit.
Taste is of the mentioned coffee, with a mineral, cocoa flavor pulling through.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, with light abv noticed in the end.
