Thisis12ptfont (992) - Los Angeles, CA, California, USA - APR 8, 2012
Intense aroma of alcohol, raisins, oats and burnt caramel, almost similar to the aroma of a barleywine. Deep blackish purple in color with no foam. Taste is heavy alcohol and coffee upfront yet, remarkably smooth. Overall, a big beer with nicely balanced flavors of alcohol, coffee, caramel, raisins, black liquorice, oats and bread. I’d give this an B+ rating.

Ktwse (2809) - SWEDEN - APR 7, 2012
Pours black, basically, with a small tan head. Aroma is surprisingly mellow, with roasted malt, chocolate and some coffee. A hint of vanilla. I’d say the chocolate stands out more than the coffee despite its name. Taste is quite balanced, towards the sweet side up front, again with more vanilla, brown sugar and chocolate (not the very dark bitter variety). With time, more of the coffee and the dark chocolate comes through and the medium finish oozes of espresso and bitter chocolate. However, it’s all over too soon. Mouthfeel is rich and creamy but overall the beer is a little too balanced for its own good. I tend to prefer my imperial stouts more bitter (e.g. Bells Expedition Stout), but I can appreciate the sweeter ones for what they are (e.g. Goose Island Bourbon County). This one, unfortunately, ends up in the middle and doesn’t really stand out in any area. It’s still a very good beer. Just not spectacular.

Sizzler80 (502) - Dublin, IRELAND - APR 7, 2012
Jet black, velvety pour with a decent biscuit lid. Bags of aromas leap out of the glass. Roasted malt, huge amount of coffee, prune, bitter peat, leather. On first sip you get bitter from the coffee. The bitterness morphs into sweetness from the chocolate and fruit. Kujo has a full bodied and complex flavour profile. Medium low carbonation and the alcohol is well balanced. Very nice indeed. Ps: Wifey thinks its good too! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Riktig trevlig doft av mörk kaffesump. Smaken är fin fin av stark kaffe och brända bönor. Trevlig eftersmak. Helgod. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

gyllenbock (5796) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2012
Bottle. Black with a large creamy, tan head. Quite a lot of Espresso in the aroma, also roasted malt. The same in the taste, and dark chocolate also notes of vanilla and chili. The body was medium and so was the carbonation. The finish was dry. A good beer!

SimonRoller (391) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - APR 6, 2012
Bottle, pours black with small brown head. Aroma is espresso coffee beans, chocolate and some coffee acidity. Taste is espresso, dark chocolate, some vanilla, some licorice and coal. medium body. Good but would have prefered richer taste and aroma, and without the acidity in the nose.

omhper (21283) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2012
Bottled. Pitch black, faint but creamy dark beown head. Rich coffee aroma. Sweet and full bodied with solid mouthfeel. Crude oil, coffee and syrup. Molasses followed by salty, lightly warming finish. Typical solid Flying Dog beer. Big flavours, no flaws, but not much personality.

omegamike (152) - York, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - APR 3, 2012
Pours deep black with a thick brown head that rapidly dissipates. Aroma is a little astringent, with coffee and booze leading the way. Flavours of coffee, rich chocolate sauce, some red fruits in the finish, and a creamy, slightly alcohol burny palate make this a treatsome beer indeed.

italianjohn (2490) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 2, 2012
Black pour tan head that subsided to a thin ring of head ... aroma of fresh roasted coffee, chocolate and light vanilla ..... taste is of sweet caramel malts, roasted coffee, light anise, vanilla and chocolate .... mouthfeel is a little oily and chalky with a bitter hop on the back end that lingers in with a roasted coffee ..... abv hidden well ..... great looking brew
