Enjoyed at the Sharp Edge Creekhouse. Bottle and a pint glass.
Vintage 2012. Black-brown cola color into the glass. Subdued head of a quarter inch. Dissipating quickly.
Coffee liqueur, vanilla, roastiness, ale yeast, light licorice, and earthy floral hops.
Coffee stout goodness. Applicable hops with a savory earthiness to complement the roasty and gutty dark malts. Bitterness is medium to low; lingeringly sweet. Hints of maple and licorice. Decent load of vanilla bean. Finishes with a booze-centered spiciness.
Drinks under-carbonated. Just a late spritz. Body is medium plus, decently sticky. A bit hot, too.
Hey, the feel is subpar, but this is still really good. I always come back to this, and for good reason.

[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.
