Pour from a 12 oz. bottle into an Alvinne tulip glass.
Aroma from the bottle is very mild coffee, not quite the aroma explosion I expected. Subtle, but lovely and warm, roasty and slightly sweet.
Pours pitch black with a deep ruby red tint visible through strong light at the bottom. Dark mocha head that disappates rather quickly, no heavily lacing on the glass either.
Aroma in the glass after a heavy pour is coffee and slight hints of dark chocolate. No unnecessary sweetness interfering. Taste is roasty coffee, chocolate, slight carrying alcohol and dark candy sugar. Very lush and indulgent.
Despite having had more flavorful imperial coffee stouts, this rocks my boat in a big way. Everything is subtle and perfectly balanced, no flavor clashes in what is clearly a fine-tuned recipe that's been slaved over. I absolutely adore this and the best thing is it's fairly easy to get hold of at a decent price. Big kudos to the boys at Flying Dog, may you long continue to give us these delicious brews.

[12 oz. NR bottle] Pours a tan 2 finger head. Very dark.
Smells delicious, like coffee, dark roasted malts, with slight cocoa nose. picking up some strong alcohol notes through the heavy roasted malt bill. balanced though.
Dark and dank malts shine through with coffee and moderate alcohol warming up front (8.9%). Definitely a sipper. mouth feel is moderately heavy and silky, but slightly thinner than most imperial stouts I've had. not a bad thing. lower carbonation, but right for style. Let this one warm up to get more complex flavors.
I pick up heavy coffee flavors and slight caramel on a nice silky finish. sweet with some lingering alcohol. Overall a pretty good beer from Flying Dog. I'd like to try the vanilla bean added rendition some day.

Yes. This is outstanding and my favorite style of beer. Rich in flavor and aroma, dark roast coffee. Pretty damn bitter and finishes like chocolate cake, with the coffee always present and really delicious. Not quite on the level of Wake n Bake, but I should've grabbed a sixer when they were available.
