K-9 Cruiser is a beautiful chestnut colored ale with good rich aroma of floral hops. The taste is most hoppy from start. However tracked slightly fruity tones during the hops. Pleasant malty background of a little hard roasted malt with caramel, with little distress and fruit. Tasty ale.

As K-9 Winter Ale, bottle from 2014. Flying Dog’s take on the classic English ’winter warmer’ strong ale style. Curious to see how it relates to Cooper’s Vintage Ale of the same style, which I had yesterday evening. Beautifully warm coppery vermillion colour, clear, with a thinnish and fairly quickly breaking, loose, pale beige head. Very malty, sweet aroma as expected from the style: cookie dough, butterscotch, roasted peanuts, caramel candy, biscuit, rhum-soaked raisins, dried orange peel, sweet gingerbread spiciness, dried banana slices, hazelnuts, spicy notes of cloves and black pepper - the feel of being invited to an old-fashioned English banquet with traditionally English winter puddings, plus faint hints of iron and wet paper, but not disturbing. Sweetish taste, banana and orange but in a candied, dried way, raisins, soft carbo, very smooth and somewhat resiny, oily mouthfeel; the malts are showcased here, very caramelly, nutty, toasted in the end but with a delicate sweetness; malty, bittersweet finish, toasted, caramel slipping through, nice late and brief peppery hop bitterness but allowing the malts to fully shine, and then of course there is a warming, rhum-like alcohol glow at the back to finish it off. The hop bitterness lingers for a while after that and the sweetness sticks just a little bit, but not so much that it becomes bothersome. Flying Dog clearly understood the essence of English strong ale and captured it in this bottle with care and knowledge. I would recommend this as a perfect introduction to this old-fashioned style to anyone coming from an American perspective.

Piwo bursztynowe, klarowne. Piana drobnopęcherzykowa szybko opada do obrączki. Prawie nie oblepia szkła. Aromat bardzo ubogi, słodowy z wyraźnym diacetylem. W smaku podobnie, owocowość, słodowość, skotrowana lekką goryczka Piwo przegazowane.

Avena entre los ingredientes. Color cobrizo, bastante limpia. Espuma insignificante. Aroma dulce, a canela. Cuerpo moderado y carbonatacion alta. Agradable sabor, de dulce malta tostada, en medio de un tono alcoholico notable pero agradable. Buena.

Purchased a 6-pack in Baltimore on my trip to Maryland Deathfest. Pours a real deep amber colour with a frothy warm-beige cap, good retention and creamy lacing. Aromas are malty with some sweetness and very light grass. The taste is sweet with fruity notes, caramel malts and some decent hop in the finish, creating a mild dryness. Plums, dates and other dark fruits. Hints of oranges. Not a bad brew, but a little heavy in sugars... especially for such warm weather.
