P: 12oz bottle into a perfect pint glass.
A: Super dark, opaque black with a foamy two finger brown head. Looks great in the glass, like a dark roast coffee.
S: A lot of dark roasted caramel malt, some coffee and dried plums. I find the aroma very inviting.
T: Slightly sweet up front, alcohol is well hidden in the finish. There's a nice roasted malt flavor along with the coffee notes in the background, hops are not pronounced at all. Coffee flavors linger in the finish, well balanced.
M: Creamy, lower carbonation, both a great for the style. Coats your mouth with each sip.
O: One of the better beers I've had in recent memory. A nice balanced malt profile with coffee flavors that add to the experience rather than overwhelm it. Not too sweet, which I find to be an issue with some imperial stouts, well balanced overall.

[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.
Serving type: on-tap
