A: The beer is essentially jet black in color—only a trace of amber appears at the corner of the glass when it is held up to the light. It poured with a two finger high dark tan head that died down and left a thick ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass and some wispy lacing covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of coffee beans and roasted malts in the nose along with some hints of sweetness.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and has flavors of coffee beans and roasted malts along with notes of bittersweet milk chocolate and hints of lactose.
M: It feels medium-bodied and somewhat smooth on the palate with a moderate to high amount of carbonation. There are some hints of alcohol warming in the finish.
O: This beer is easy to drink and quite flavorful; the alcohol is well masked. The coffee flavors aren’t as strong compared to other coffee stouts but the lactose flavors almost make this seem like a hybrid with a milk stout.

[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.
