Effectively opaque in color, pours a moderate sized tan colored head, creamy and with good retention.
Sweet coffee aroma, definite dark malt presence in the aroma. Chocolate.
Rich coffee flavor, yet still quite malty and a little sweet. If Starbucks made a beer drink, I think it would taste like this beer. A little roasty, but pretty tame for a stout. Bitterness stays at a gentle level with a subtle transition into the finish. Malty roast flavors with a slight hint of alcohol linger into the finish.
Moderate carbonation and moderately big body. Has a bit of creaminess to it, and the alcohol warming is well controlled given the strength.
Does a good job of delivering on some coffee flavor and aroma, but not something I'd want to drink in great quantities.

[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.
