Appears nearly black with only a few shades of brown. Upon poring a brown thick head forms but dissolves to a tan ring. Leaves splashy lacing. Sweet and dark cocoa w/ coffee dominate the aroma. Also present are alcohol and dark, grape-like fruit smells.There's a hint of hop floridness, it seems to meld with the alcohol.
The taste is an intoxicating blend of coffee and roasted chocolate malts. There are is dark fruit and a bit of alcohol present but the rich malts and coffee easily take center stage. The finish is roasty with an almost lactose quality that rounds each sip off very nicely. The body is full and velvety with low carbonation.
The alcohol begins to sharpen as it warms. The flavors stay distinctive and don't muddy together. A perfect brew for a rainy evening. One i wouldn't mind having again.

[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. Almost on the level of Wake n Bake. Amazing.
