Appearance- opaque brown no head
Aroma- Coffe vanilla yeasty and slightly floral
Taste- Carmel molasses brown sugar. The coffee comes out after that with a very slight hop bite at the end. LIght prune and raisin toward the back.
Mouthfeel- viscous flat on the palette with slight alcohol warmth. I would like to try this one on nitro.
Overall- I would assume that the coffee used was an oily dark roast , that may be what keeps the head in check. It is an Imperial Coffee stout that is not all booze, not all coffee and not all stout. That being said I like that the hops take a back seat, coffee is bitter enough, and i could definitely see me crushing this before a red eye flight cross country !

[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.
