4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours pitch black with a foamy two finger tan head with excellent lacing. Aroma is of dark roast coffee, roasted malts, sweet malts, caramel, molasses, and some chocolate. Taste is about the same as the aroma with just maybe s little booze as it warms. Has a medium-full body with a semi-mouthfel and a mostly sweet, long, slightly warming. Overall, another tasty brew from flying dog that features some nice coffee notes.

Impressive indeed! Without doubt this is the best brew I’ve experienced from Flying Dog! Slightly astringent after-taste...I guess most would call dry (?) doesn’t hurt the overall enjoyment for me...I would like a bit more body but again...I like this brew and will def drink it again!

A drinkable & delicious imperial! Pours black w/ a thin mocha head & a ring of lacing. The aroma is roasted notes w/ a hint of chocolate & vanilla. The taste is light roasted coffee up front & follows w/ mild chocolate & vanilla flavor. Complex & tasty, it doesn’t have near the bitterness that most imperials carry. It’s creamy, sweet, & provides just enough bitterness to let u know that this is a big & powerful brew. Well done!!
