2012 cellared for about 9 months. Poured into teku
A: black with glistening coffee colored head with decent legs
S: toasty burnt chocolate, espresso, sweet caramel
T:smooth malt forward with big chocolate notes finished with a sweet espresso. Bit boozy in the aftertaste that is a but aggressive.
M: 3.5 would have liked smoother and creamy but I get a medium carb and slight grittiness

Overall: 3.5/5 very drinkable with nice smell and taste. A little more age could mellow the booze

Flying Fish Kojo

Reviewed from notes from the Spring. Standard pint/12oz

Appearance: Mostly black stout with a shorter lived tan head. 3.5/5

Smell: Not picking up much from this bottle. Some roasted malts and coffee. 3.25/5

Taste: Taste is big on malts. However, I get more chocolate than coffee. Despite that, the flavor is good. 3.75/5

Mouthfeel: Medium body, creamy and with medium carbonation. Not bad. 3.75/5

Not bad, hides the alcohol pretty well. Maybe a little more coffee would be good. 3.75/5

$3.99 for a single bottle at Total Wine. Healthy pour into a chalice.

A fairly well balanced imperial stout but a little too hot tasting wiith an ABV of only 8.9%. Typical rich and roasty flavors. I love imperial stouts and RISs, so it is hard for me to rate most of these beers below 4.0, but this is for now. This beer may do well with some cellaring.

A - Pours an opaque very dark reddish brown (but not cloudy), with a half-finger dark tan rocky head that disapates immediately (-). Some slight lacing that does not stick to the glass.

S - Coffee, touch of alcohol, little to no hoppiness of any kind, some dark fruitiness (raisins).

T - Dark chocolate, coffee, dark roasted malt bitterness (tame but evident), a hint of whiskey, a bit too hot (-).

MF - Full bodied. Smooth not syrupy with a bite in the finish. Moderate carbonation and thus alittle fizzy in the mouth.

Served in a chalice.

Appearance: A very dark motor oil color, pitch brownish black with thin body to it. The head (straight tan) dropped pretty quick after rising to almost a finger's length.

Smell: Rich coffee bean scent, smells a bit of alcohol and a dose a half-n-half.

Taste: a strong espresso....bitter and milky sweet. I mean this is definitely one of the best coffee infused stouts I have had just on taste alone. One sip really isn't enough to indulge, you taste everything from molasses to caramel but still heavy coffee...absolutely yum.

Mouth: medium carbonation, feels a little flat but crazy still. I have to take into consideration it's from the growler and maybe it lost some pressurization.

Overall: Absolutely awesome beer, maybe a little more carbonation would've helped the appearance and mouthfeel but I do keep in mind how well my growler was capped. Regardless I will buy this again when I go back to superstar beverage (pending availability). Salud!
