On tap at Pinocchioís. Dark pour, ruby highlights. Very rich flavor, loads of coffee but with a really sharp, sweet finish. Vanilla and a slew of oats present. Pretty decent, but not mind blowingly awesome.

Had at Pony with grandpa. Pours a dark black with tan head. Not too creamy nor too toasty. A nice balance that suits me well.

(bottle) Black body and a small reddish-brown brown. Aroma of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, wood, a note of smoke. Full bodied, thick and chewy. Coffee, chocolate flavors; alcohol; sweet syrup flavor mixed with bitter burnt notes. A little more burnt than is to my liking, but not too bad. Good body.

Bottle from lukin013. Pours thick and black with a tan foam on top that leaves a very thin layer. The aroma has dark chocolate, espresso, burnt caramel malt, and oats. Thereís some creamy vanilla sweetness to the flavor, with a touch of molasses, but this is all about the coffee and dark chocolate. Moderately roasty with a hint of alcohol but overall quite easy to consume for an Imperial Stout. Good coffee Stout. I like that the abv isnít through the roof.

Pours black with a slight brown head. Nice coffee aroma, and has a slightly sweet edge to it. The coffee and chocolate flavors really linger on the palate.

12 oz bottle pours a nice thick dark brown with and espresso like head. Smells of dark chocolate, coffee, dark malts, and toffee. The flavor of this brew is dead on. Huge imperial stout flavor with a French vanilla coffee flavor lingering in the background. Sweet but not overbaringly sugary. Palate is a little bit sticky but not terribly cloying. Overall another awesome offering from flying dog in a six pack none the less! Cheers

Pours an opaque black with a small tan head. Smells of roasted malts and chocolate. Aroma is coffee and chocolate qith some roasted malts on the back end. Body is very full and creamy. Taste is on the sweet side but again reminds me of coffee. This is more enjoyable if you let it do its duty than if you try to figure out how to classify or describe it. A satisfying substantial brew. Iím glad to have picked up 6 of these.

Awesome brew! Pours black with thin caramel brown head. Sweet, chocolate, caramel, vanilla aroma. Silky smooth across the tongue with a sweet caramel / coffee finish. Slightly boozey at the end. Good stuff.
