12 oz bottle from Junto Society Meeting 12/12. Poured into a Flying Dog Chalice.
Appearance: Pours pitch black with a very thin tan head. Had to pour quite aggressively to even get that. Not much for retention or lacing.
Aroma: Strong coffee aroma along with some chocolate malt. Smells sweet.
Taste: Semi-sweet dark chocolate, milk chocolate, dark fruit, vanilla. Coffee isn't overwhelming but is definitely there with a slight roastiness. Reminds me of an iced coffee. It's a little on the sweet side but that's ok here. Pretty good but not as good as "Batch 2"
Mouthfeel: Creamy, slick, medium-full body with very little carbonation. Slight alcohol presence.
Overall, I find it an enjoyable beer, if somewhat inconsistent. No head and carbonation take away a little bit from an otherwise great tasting beer.

[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
