A: Rich chocolate pour produces a 1 finger mocha colored head that was whispy and frothy, only moderately retaining, while leaving a small splotchy and unimpressive lacing.

S: Some chocolate bitterness arrives on the nose, but very light and insignificant. Milky creamer, no alcohol detection and really nothing that stands out to get my attention. Was expecting alot more aromatic appeal from this one, but came up small.

T: Bitter chocolate for flavor first stands out, some milky creamer, a smooth bitterness, aka very light and refined, agains was expecting a bit more coffee roast influence here. Some alcohol shows itself with a spiciness of sweet cinnamon and nutmeg. Chocolate roast appears moderately on the fade, but nothing memoriable. Some chicory and sweet licorice, and burnt wood rounds things out in an otherwise held back flavor that was far from imperial.

M: Mouthful was creamy, smooth oily texture with a burnt bitterness and a warming of alcohol.

O: Roasty alcohol seems to overtake the flavor at times. Some bitterness, but not much flavor, doesnt stand out and is hardly worhty of imperial standards. Moderate drinkability and a bit of a let down.

On tap. Nose is sweet and chocolatey, not much in terms of coffee in the aroma, but very pleasant. Scrumptious Chocolate and Coffee notes but not cloying. Nicely balanced sweetness with alcohol in check.

Nitro is a must to truly experience this stout.

I tried this on tap at Conway & O’Reilly’s in Janesville, WI in summer 2012.

Pours as black as can be with very little head. Scent is that of robust coffee malts. Taste is rich, robust and full or great heavy flavors. You get tastes of roasted malts, caramel malts, coffee, toffee, and so much more. A fabulous dark beer for those who can handle something really dark.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery after my tour. Awesome group of guys there and the beer was better than I had anticipated as I had only had their standard beers we get in Florida. This time I got to try the local release stuff.

A: very dark body with a single finger thick and creamy head. Lace that completely coats the inner glass surface.

S: aroma is of spearmint and mostly espresso. Light milk chocolate notes.

T: the flavor follows the nose almost exactly with more spearmint, espresso/coffee, milk chocolate and roasted malts.

M: thick nitro-ed body, semi dry finish.

Overall: this one is pretty interesting especially with the degree of mint. It definitly takes the edge off the espresso and helps drinkability although it removes some of the coffee from the coffee stout. I am on the fence about how I liked this one.

A vigorous pour into a Duvel tulip produces a nice dark tan head, black in the glass underneath. Nose is all dark fruit and roasted malt with little coffee noted. Heavy/viscous mouthfeel that goes with the style, fruity notes and then some light coffee, sweet from the maltiness. Finishes on a roasty note...again not too heavy on the coffee but a nice drink nonetheless. I'd like to age some to see what develops.

A fine tuned heavy hitter. Poured with a decent tan foamy head tht slowly settles and good lace. Color is an opaque black brown. Aroma is roast, coffee, malt, toffee. Flavor's like nose, sweet on top, but short lived and followed quickly by carbonic tand and dark roast coffee, bitter from coffee, black malt, and yeastoids fit perfeclty. Body and carbonation are perfect. Finish length is average for style and likewise boozy for style. Good drinkin' brew.

3.83/5  rDev -4%

Nearly pitch black with big frothy tan head..Big walls of tan lacing.

Smell big roasted, woody, coffee scents. Some raisins, tobacco.

Taste offers equal amounts of coffee and burnt fruits. Lots of molasses-like sweetness. Finishes with mild bitterness.

Chewy, sticky, heavy.

My first from Flying Dog...pretty decent.
