The beer comes in a dark black color.

The aroma has caramel, lightly roasted malt, some coffee, blueberries?, smokiness.

The flavor follows of licorice throughout, hints of vanilla and coffee, a good amount of bitter chocolate, some meatiness and smoked flavors. Umami compliments those. There's a chalky after taste.

There are good notes, but also some really strange notes for a coffee stout.

330ml bottle. Snifter glass. Black color & brown foam. Creamy, thick & lasting crown. Roasted, toasted, caramel malt, coffee & fudge chocolate aromas. Coffee hues, toasted sweetness & slight herbal bitterness at first sip. Full body. Soft carbonation. Velvet & voluptuous palate. Cappucino flavor & slight spicy touch in the middle. Gentle & dry toasted sweet finish with dried sensation. Roasted coffee, bitter cocoa & licorice notes on the aftertaste. Delightful & flavorful. A big one!!

Poured into a goblet, jet black with a finger of light brown head.

Sweet coffee/chocolate on the nose. Roasty malts, maple syrup, leathery, but smells very sweet. Very mochaish.

Taste follows the nose. Bittersweet coffee and chocolate. Very delicious. Very slight booze afterburn. Simply a very tasty stout. Reminds me of Breakfast Stout (possibly my favorite beer).

Slick and sticky all at once. Lower carbonation which works well here. Coffee aftertaste is nice.

Overall a great example of what a coffee stout should be. Flying Dog is one of the first breweries I got into and this is a big reason why. If you love Founders Breakfast Stout like I do, you'll love this.
