Flying Dog : Green Tea Imperial Stout

Pours a dark brown, bordering on black . Off white head forms and leaves good lace. Aroma of leafy tea and roasted malts. In the flavor, green tea and smokey malt flavor. Chocolate and tea flavor work well together. Fruity booze note and rounds out the flavor with some smooth alcohol. Soft feel and drinks smoothly and quite easily. Overall, this is a good beer, the green tea supersedes the hops and adds a leafy, herbal flavor to a big time stout.

Pours jet black with a brown head. In the aroma, sweet tea with a small roasted malt. In the taste, roasty caramel, with coffee and sweet tea notes all the way through. A small bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dryer roasty caramel malt in the aftertaste. The smell and taste of tea, with the look and aftertaste of a stout, interestingly different.

A: This poured an opaque pitch black with thick dark tan head. Beautiful.
S: It smelled like bitter dark chocolate and roasted coffee, with some faint spices.
T: It tasted like rich dark chocolate and bitter roasted coffee, with some herbal tea and grassy hops. It had a clean bittersweet aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with fine carbonation. Nice slick body.
D: This was an interesting stout. The idea of combining green tea into typical stout flavors isn't an obvious mix. It ended up about as good as I could imagine, but still not what I would consider delicious. The body was nice, and the finish was surprisingly smooth with well hidden alcohol. So it was easy to drink. No reason to cellar that I can think of. Nice to try once, but nothing more than a fleeting novelty.

Glugs into the snifter super-dark. Looks black with a dark mocha-colored head. Sits at a half-inch. Falls to a ring with some haste.

Roasty aromas of mild chocolate and kilned grain blends with an herbal and distict smell of whole leaf green tea. Lighter still is a whiff of espresso. Earthy and very light notes of berry.

Dry, earthy green tea flavors correspond with usual stout maltiness. Green tea leaves, heavy roast, herbal bitterness, tart berry, dark cocoa, espresso, spearmint, and earthy hops. Really impressed at how these flavors marry. Very earthy tea finish with a quiet booze warmth.

An inflated body with lots of chew, supported by a languid and chunky carbonation. 10% is hard to believe.

So enjoyable. Such a unique drinking experiencw. Worth the buy. I would love to get more.
