Big thanks to rbradley for this one. 2011 12oz vintage into a tulip.

A- Pours midnight black with a finger of dark mocha-colored head that fades to a few wisps. Leaves minimal lacing, but a thick brown film accompanied by some alcohol legs. Nice looking stout.

S- Smells like an iced coffee. Nice roasted coffee bean presence that mingles with smooth, sweet vanilla tones. Not picking up a ton of chocolate, but there is a bit of a powdery milk chocolate note in there.

T- Big coffee out of the gates. Roasted earthy notes mix with a bigger chocolate presence than the nose suggested. More of a semi-sweet type of chocolate. Tastes of vanilla and liquid brownie finish off the sip with a lingering bitterness.

M- Medium bodied, but feels like the carbonation is a bit high here which detracts from the feel. Makes it appear thinner than it really is.

O- I really like this brew, but I feel like I need more from the nose for it to be great in my opinion. Maybe the flavors were a bit more intense when really fresh?

Enjoyed this with a friend two weekends before finals in Oxford Ohio, got it from a trade.

This was the wake and bake series and poured motor oil black into a tulip glass. The smell was a bit off from what I expected, (which might have been due to a colder than usual refrigerator) but the taste was more than compensatory. Strong espresso, a hint of oaky musk and slightly boozy finish. Rich mouth feel that coats the tongue and cheeks. I heard this doesn't age as well as I would have thought, but I wish I had another to see for myself. Overall great beer.

Vintage: 2011

A: Jet black with a two finger khaki head.

S: Big roasted coffee notes and a subtle vanilla character.

T: A nice roasted coffee flavor is present up front that follows with a mild bitterness, which is offset by a malty sweetness out the back.

M: Exceptionally smooth.

O: Coffee based stouts are usually hit or miss with me. This one really hit the spot. The coffee is showcased well in the nose, and perfectly in the taste. A must try for coffee lovers.

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!
