355ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown
Poured jet black - nothing gets through even when held up to the light. Dark dirty brown head poured thick and foamy then faded to nice thickish covering... very faint lacing...
Aroma - Big blast of strong espresso coffee and toasted malts, lots of sweet milk and dark chocolate, oats, molasses, treacle, light blackcurrent/blackberry notes, toasted nuts, cocoa, leathery, woody, some faint vanilla traces, light spicy hops, burnt sugar...
Taste - Lots of sweet creamy chocolate and rich dark coffee to the fore, roasted malts, faint smokey notes, some licorice, some peppery hops, lots of toasted nutty notes, molasses sweetness..
Feel - Very smooth and creamy with just a little sharpness after... full bodied... very drinkable for 8.9%
Overall - An outstanding brew and up with the best of the Americans impy stouts..

[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.
