mattphilips (802) - Budapest, - MAR 12, 2012
Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Szép mélyfekete szín, kevés, ám annál kitartóbb krémes-laza bézs habbal megkoronázva. Illatában értékes pörkölt espresso kávé és maláta, karamell, csokoládé, vanília és kevés gyógynövényes érzetű komló található. Selymes, egészen könnyed ízében pörkölt kávé és maláta, tejcsokoládé és tejkaramell, illetve kevés aszalt cseresznye és komló bontakozik ki. Utóíze enyhén gyümölcsösen fanyar és tejeskávés, hosszan tartó. Olajos, de nem túl nehézkes teste van, közepesen száraz és egészen buborékos, mely tulajdonságoknak köszönhetően egészen könnyen iható, ráadásul az alkohol íze is csak halványan érződik. Nagyon-nagyon ízletes, könnyedebb stílusú imperial stout.

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!

Aroma - is packed with rich espresso roast, oats, and chocolate Appearance - black body, with a 3/4" brown head that quickly recedes to a ring. Taste - is astringent from rich dark espresso roast. There is an abundance of dark chocolate and some alcohol as well. There is also a bit of oat present. Palate - body is full, the texture is thick and creamy, the carbonation is between lively and average, the finish is astringent with heavy roast.

jrodooo5 (1369) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - OCT 22, 2015
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!!
