12oz bottle (2011) into a snifter. Pours a deep dark black w/ a thick tan head.

Aroma is bitter dark coffee and chocolate. Has a slightly over-roasted, burnt smell too. Hints of dark fruits and nuts when swirled.

Taste is bitter, roasted coffee and cocoa.

Mouthfeel is coating but still smooth and light, with a strong bitter aftertaste.

Overall a good coffee stout but perhaps lacks some of the finesse and complexity found in the best ones.

Sipping on a 2011 vintage thanks to Bennettrox!

Appearance- Super thick, oily looking, with very minimal head. Turned very quickly into a thin ring of brown around the edges of my snifter.

Smell- COFFEE. Behind that some dark cocoa, and just a touch of vanilla.

Taste- Tons of coffee and sweet cocoa upfront, with a solid roasted malt backbone. As it warms up, you start to pick up a slight vanilla note behind everything. No alcohol taste at all, but you get the warmth from it as you swallow.

Mouthfeel- Very thick and coating. Minmal carbonation, perfect for the style.

Overall- Was really looking forward to trying this one and I'm glad I got to. FBS was one of the first beers I really fell in love with, and this goes toe to toe with it. I just wish I could get it in my area! Very solid beer, and I would definitely give it a try if you can!

2011 Poured into Duvel glass

A: One-finger dark mocha head that retains around the edges really well, jet black color, good carbonation

Poured into a snifter while waiting for the steaks to grill, noon-ish.

A: Black with tan highlights. A half finger head that leaves big bubbles in its wake. A tan ring around the glass. Good lacing.

S: Wake up and smell the coffee! Coffee grounds dominate.

T: A pleasant Jittery Joe's Coffee sensation followed by oatmeal and vanilla undertones. Toffee and malts drive up and take a break.

M: medium and creamy. Full bodied.

O: A great brunch drink. The turtles over in Athens, GA know how to cook their beer-fast. A top notch imperial stout that certainly sticks its neck out to please.

A black-bodied beer with a frothy, mocha colored head that settles down fairly quickly. Lacing is minimal. Nose is a nice mix of coffee and cream, roasted malt notes, sweet brown sugar, caramel, vanilla.

Lots of fresh coffee, dark maltiness, cream, oatmeal, vanilla in the taste. Really delicious, one of the best coffee beers and one of the best oatmeal beers I’ve tried. Hop presence is quite low, nearly imperceptible, all bitterness comes from the dark roast coffee. Pleasant sweetness well-integrated with the other flavors, but not overly sugary. The booze is well hidden and only emerges ever so slightly in the finish.

Lovely mouthfeel; full-bodied, chewy and creamy, super smooth with a touch of stickiness. Not a super-huge imperial, kind of falls in between the bigger examples of the style and a regular oatmeal stout, making it one of the more drinkable versions of the style.
