3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I didn’t expect much but I really enjoyed this. The aroma is lightly smoky with ample roasted malt and coffee accents. The flavor is define by those roasted notes and gives up the expected chocolate/coffee and burnt malt flavors. Simple and narrow in flavor profile, but satisfying if you have a roasted malt tooth. Which I do. Much better than anticipated.

First taste of any Flying Monkey. Pours dark as expected, nice cream head. Aroma of bread, roasted nuts. Tastes of nuts, some chocolate. Not a lot of mouthfeel, medium body, not creamy. Dry. Little aftertaste. Would recommend as early venture into darks from lite.

This is the first beer I have had from Flying Monkey. My expectations were high but my experience was disappointing. The aroma was okay but not a well defined characteristics. The beer poured very well with a nice head but the taste fell flat after even a few drops. It left my palate wanting and expecting more.

Courtesy of Doran. Pours dark brown almost black with than head. Nose of dark roast and coffee, and some chocolate. Medium body. Flavor is rich roasted matts with some fruit, and a coffee based bitter finish. Not bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a black with a large tan head. Aroma is nice with lots of roasted malt and a bit of chocolate and maybe a bit of alcohol which is weird since this is only 4.2%. Flavor is again a nice roasted malt with a nice char left on the tongue. Mouthfeel is a bit thin but the roasted malt is as good as some of the higher rated stouts. Nice session stout.
