    Drank 2011 Black Xantus and 2012 GI BCBCS yesterday.

    While Black Xantus was good, BCBCS was exceptional - if you want the big coffee notes, drink them fresh as the coffee tends to fade over time.......

    A young BCBS is definitely a good choice for strong coffee notes, although the bourbon wins out in the end.

    FBS is a good choice, and I have to 2nd the BBC Coffeehouse Porter recommendation. I have not had the Espresso Oak-Aged Yeti, but the chocolate yeti has some good coffee notes so I have to imagine the Espresso version is grand.

    If you can still find it, Two Brothers Red Eye Coffee Porter was like drinking a great cup of coffee with a bit of beer added into it. It was part of their retro release series and debuted in April last year, but I've seen bottles here and there still. I have a few in my beer fridge and it has aged nicely so far.
