Draft. Dark brown pour with a frothy off-white head. Coffee on the nose, malty and a bit fruity in taste. Delicious beer.

Dark color with a small beige head. Roasted malts, chocolate, anis and herb dominate the aroma. Flavour is lots of chocolate, coffee and herbs. Quite bitter. Full mouthfeel and nice velvety texture. Long and pleasant aftertaste.

Lovely rich and complex beer... smooth malty body with lovely dark espresso, chocolate notes cut against buy clean fresh hop notes.

Yum! This brew oured very dark with little light brown head. It smelled sweet and chocolatey. The flavors of chocolate and coffee are definitely apparent, with he coffee flavor definitely lingering on the palette. It is very drinkable despite its heaviness, with the bitter of hops there but is mostly masked by other flavors.

12 oz. bottle from Newtown, CT in a Tulip glass. My first Flying Dog. Poured like black gold with a brown thick, foamy head that eventually dissolved. Aroma of baking chocolate and coffee, pleasant, just a bit of alocohol though. Taste also of bitter chocolate and coffee, some licorice and alcohol in the after-taste. Very suprised at how good this was, although a bit more sweet, it would have made for a higher rating.

Deep brown almost black body. Dark beige head which disappears relatively quickly. Smooth oily moutfeel. Aroma of licorice, coffee, roasted malt, dark chocolate and maybe some oak. Has a touch of mocca and roasted coffee beans in the finish. Great porter, no doubt!

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2008 Bottle from Julio’s Liquors in Westborough, MA. Great flavor with a wonderful balance of chocolatey coffee malts and hops. Barely any head, but the slight head it had was almost a dark copper color. Simply a great beer that is definitely worth trying.

Dark and really complex for a porter. The hops on the palate is a nice surprise. ABV is well masked. I'd almost say this could pass for a black IPA if not for the dryness. Really good!
