look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Served in Bottle poured into Great Divide Yeti Glass

Appearance- Dark,Dark,Dark Black. Tan head which faded rather quickly.

Smell- Coffee,Coffee, oh and I did I say Coffee. However it smells incredibly balanced. I'm getting roasted malt backbone, and Chocolate.

Taste-This is a coffee stout and it doesn't disappoint. The Coffee is up front, but not so bitter. After the coffee you pick the roasted malt, and the hints of vanilla/chocolate. Tastes Great.

Mouthfeel-Medium to Full.

Overall-This is a great coffee stout. Well balanced, and smooth. You don't taste the 8.9 ABV at all. This is up there with the best coffee stouts, and in my humble opinion I put this slightly ahead of Founders Breakfast Stout because of the mouthfeel.

Cheers Everyone

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- opaque brown no head

Aroma- Coffe vanilla yeasty and slightly floral

Taste- Carmel molasses brown sugar. The coffee comes out after that with a very slight hop bite at the end. LIght prune and raisin toward the back.

Mouthfeel- viscous flat on the palette with slight alcohol warmth. I would like to try this one on nitro.

Overall- I would assume that the coffee used was an oily dark roast , that may be what keeps the head in check. It is an Imperial Coffee stout that is not all booze, not all coffee and not all stout. That being said I like that the hops take a back seat, coffee is bitter enough, and i could definitely see me crushing this before a red eye flight cross country !

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle courtesy of Gibby, thanks again!

Pours a thick and dark black color with a tiny tan head.

Aromas are nutty, smoky, with charred malts and espresso.

Taste is smoky, but not overly so. Dark charred malt notes, bitter coffee, lightly sweet brown sugar, and bakers chocolate. Finish is crisp and bitter with some alcohol warmth.

Mouthfeel is nicely carbonated, but a touch thin.

Overall, a pretty nice coffee stout. Solid offering from Flying Dog.

3.78/5  rDev -5.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a jet black with deep, dark ruby brown edging where light can penetrate. The head is a nice tan brown, a finger thick and showed fair retention. Lacing is spotty, with little stick.

Smell - What you'd expect of the style - Roasted malt notes coming through with coffee and milk chocolate character. A hair of raisin and anise sit beneath.

Taste - Follows the nose. Big roasted coffee notes upfront, backed by hints of sweet and dark chocolate. A touch of anise hits briefly mid-taste, then finishes with milk chocolate and a faint vanilla note.

Mouthfeel - This is the killer. The body's a bit thin for the style, it's somewhat chalky on the finish and the carbonation is weak and fizzy. Fairly disappointing.

Overall - This is a solid imperial stout, held back by it's lack of 'stout' body. Still, I enjoyed the flavor, and I'd definitely give it thought about buying it again.
