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.

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.

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Dark black with one-and-a-half-finger, dark tan, creamy head that lasted a couple of minutes. Okay lacing.

S: Coffee and bittersweet chocolate.

T: Moderate sweetness and light bitterness. The coffee flavor is strong. The finish is about the same. The coffee is good.

M: Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation. Smooth and slightly warm going down.

O: This is a pretty good coffee stout. Would drink again if I liked coffee more.

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.
