Thick creamy mocha brown head, deep ebony black. Handsome beer. Smell is full of dark roasted malts, distinct charcoal and ash characteristics, some soy sauce. Not too much chocolate, mostly nutty roastedness. The beer is a bit too carbonated for me tastes; lots of tiny, active bubbles, breaking up an otherwise silky mouthfeel. Taste is typical of my experience with Flying Dog; lots of oxidized characteristics in the tastes, which is not nessecarily a bad thing. I find these beers harder to describe; it's malty without much sweetness and a distinct metallic "twagniness". Slightly spicy lingering finish.

This beer reminds me somewhat of Gonzo Imperial Porter; huige, bold malt-forward tastes, powerful flavors. Flying Dog's big beers just seem so...BOLD. I liked this beer.

Far and away my favorite Flying Dog beer. Strong roast aroma that goes down surprisingly smooth. Delicious.
