TorbenJensen (519) - Valby, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2015
Beautiful nougat colored foam and a delicate aroma of hard toasted / roasted malt with distinct mocha tones. The flavor is cold coffee with a slightly burnt character. Lots of heavy malt body and only a slight discrete alcohol taste held down by coffee, roasted malt and a moderate hoppy bitterness. It’s a really nice imperial, but unfortunately the little anonymous in the amount of Imperial Stouts. It lacks just a little special character to step out of the crowd, and a well-tempered Limfjords Porter from Thisted in Denmark could easily have done it as well.

stevoj (2880) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 28, 2015
Growler from Albertsons. CO2 fill pours out with a fast rising, creamy beige head that stays fluffy throughout. Dark roast grains and bitter chocolate dominate the aroma. Taste follows with tons of roast grain bitterness. A hint of alcohol warmth at the finish, but mostly bitter. Top notch RIS.

Black beer, creamy brown head. In aroma has notes of bitter chocolate, brownie and even some roasty character like coffee and bread and a little bit of licorice. Creamy texture with chocolate character and roastiness, some of hop bitterness and a warm finish

Dense black pour with a tall, creamy tan head. Aroma of roast malt, coffee, chocolate and alcohol. The flavor has lots of roast barley giving it a rich, bitter bite. Roasty with lots of burnt edges. Not sweet and sticky.

It’s hard to go wrong with an Imperial Stout. Extremely hard. Black Flag is done right. No complaints.
