pours beautiful, thick black with a lingering tan head. smells of coffee, chocolate, roastiness, and malt. taste is super-dry, which is surprising considering the other reviews. alcohol is well-hidden behind chocolate, coffee, and rather bitter hops. very bubbly. i really would have liked more malty sweetness.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle into tulip
-Great aroma, milk chocolate mostly with a hint of coffee. Light amount of alcohol picked up.
-Pours beautifully. Very dark, nearly black. not at all translucent. A head of about 3 fingers on top, a great burnt caramel color. Dissipates into a thin film leaving some lacing on the glass.
-Tastes of dark cherry with a bit of hoppiness. A little malt flavor comes through as well. Slightly bitter like dark chocolate, but only little chocolate flavor. Bitterness dissipates slowly on the tongue after sip.
-Silky mouth feel, coats the mouth nicely.

Pours dark with a nice stable head. Smokey aroma. Rich malts with chocolate taste. Also hints of pine. Complex and well balanced. Very nice on a dark winter night.

Not a beer I enjoyed. It has a favourable appearance but the body is too strong and it seemed to recarbonate with every sip.

I’ve had a few of the other flying dog beers, this is probably the best one of tthe ones I have had. Hunter would be pround, has a nice thick body and a good flavor with a strong aftertaste. I had it at underground bluz in orlando, fl.

The aroma is of caramelled malt. Pours a completely opaque deep, dark brownish-black with a dense chocolatey head that leaves a nice lacing. Flavors of smooth caramel, bitter sweet German chocolate, and espresso end with a burnt caramel aftertaste. It’s only been a year, but it is much smoother in ’06 than it was in ’05. I’ve got one bottle left...I wonder how long I should wait before drinking it?
