Jet black appearance with a one finger thick khaki colored head. Big notes of bourbon and roasted coffee, with thick molasses, heavy cream, caramel, toffee, chocolate, oak, vanilla: the flavors keep coming, lots and lots of complex aromas. Toasted coffee beans with bittersweet milk chocolate, sweet cream, molasses and burnt wood. Like the aroma, tons and tons of flavors keep rolling on the palate with complexity. Toffee, orange, banana, and some odd hints of blue cheese even make their way through. Fantastically complex overall flavor. Milky and rich mouthfeel with mild carbonation. Coffee, malty finish. Really incredible brew.

Heavy coffee. Smooth finish. 89 is a low rating to me.

This is a 8.9% ABV Imperial Stout, brewed with Black Dog Coffee out of Summit Point West Virginia. I have really not loved Flying Dog beers in the past, but one of the guys from the Four Firkins opened one for me to try and I'm a convert! I brought a couple home for more intense "study".

Aroma: Cinamon, milk chocolate, roasted grains. Sweetened condensed milk and light roast coffee as it warms up.

Appearance: Deep black in color. Rich dark tan to brown head. Head fades to sides of glass fairly quickly.

Flavor: There is very bright and flavorful coffee up front in the beer. The initial smack in the face of coffee fades to a semi-sweet chocolate flavor and a bitter finish. There is a bit of grain sweetness, but the coffee is strong in this one and dries the beer out. The roast seems lighter, with a zippiness and lack of burnt flavor I tend to note in darker roasts. This beer has a rich and creamy mouthfeel.

Overall: This is outstanding! An incredible use of coffee, where the beer is elevated by it and not over-run by it. Also a great base beer.
