A strong coffee aroma with a good bit of chocolate. Black in color with little head that is dark brown. A powerful black coffee taste with a bitter finish. The roasted malts make a impact with a bit a vanilla flavor mixed in.

I really thought this would be a lot bolder. It’s still good. But with a name like Kujo you’d expect it to tear you a new one. Aroma is nice with coffee and some faint dark chocolate. Taste is dark roasted malt with coffee and a hint of vanilla. Finish is smooth and tasty with little bitterness. FD--if you ever make another version of this, I want to have to strap on a helmet to enjoy this one, thanks.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A pitch black coloured beer with a tan coloured head. A strong coffee led aroma, burnt malt, smoky, treacle, chocolate and some spice. Rich and full bodied mouthfeel. A rich bittersweet coffee taste, smoky, treacle and chocolate, then an alcoholic bitterness that brings forth a fruitiness of grapefruit and lime. The finish is rich coffee and bitter sweet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on the daylight savings time day after a long day of errand running. Appearance is a thick pitch black with a very thin and bubbly dark tan head that quickly dissipates. Aroma of dark roast coffee, vanilla, light molasses, chocolate, relatively faint. Taste of roasted chocolate, dark roast coffee, light burn, light licorice. It’s pretty good, nothing too impressive, just good.

I have been looking forward to trying Kujo for some time now and i most say it met my expectations. Has a pleasant aroma of coffee beans with a hint of vanilla. A Taste of strong yet smooth coffee to it.

355ml Bottle from Beers of Europe website (£4.39):
Another very enjoyable beer from Flying Dog, this one was surprisingly easy to drink given the strength of the beer and the strong roasted malts and coffee seems to go well towards, striking a good balance and being leveled out a little but the hints of sweetness coming from the dark fruits and sugars. A very nice imperial stout that was well worth picking up although I would probably pick up a bottle of the breweries Gonzo Imperial Stout again before going back to this one.
