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! sinfull (1776) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2016

Origin: Bottle. Vessel: Bottle. Supplier: Corks Of Cotham (Bristol). Rich and bitter with hints of wood. Coffee tops. jrodooo5 (1704) - 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!! Mr_Pink_152 (5400) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2015
