(bottle) Black body and a small reddish-brown brown. Aroma of dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate, wood, a note of smoke. Full bodied, thick and chewy. Coffee, chocolate flavors; alcohol; sweet syrup flavor mixed with bitter burnt notes. A little more burnt than is to my liking, but not too bad. Good body.

Bottle from lukin013. Pours thick and black with a tan foam on top that leaves a very thin layer. The aroma has dark chocolate, espresso, burnt caramel malt, and oats. There’s some creamy vanilla sweetness to the flavor, with a touch of molasses, but this is all about the coffee and dark chocolate. Moderately roasty with a hint of alcohol but overall quite easy to consume for an Imperial Stout. Good coffee Stout. I like that the abv isn’t through the roof.

Pours black with a slight brown head. Nice coffee aroma, and has a slightly sweet edge to it. The coffee and chocolate flavors really linger on the palate.

12 oz bottle pours a nice thick dark brown with and espresso like head. Smells of dark chocolate, coffee, dark malts, and toffee. The flavor of this brew is dead on. Huge imperial stout flavor with a French vanilla coffee flavor lingering in the background. Sweet but not overbaringly sugary. Palate is a little bit sticky but not terribly cloying. Overall another awesome offering from flying dog in a six pack none the less! Cheers

12oz bottle into a snifter. Pours black with a thin tan head. Aroma is coffee and chocolate. Taste is a lot of coffee with some bitterness at the end. The coffee lingers on the palate for some time

Pours an opaque black with a small tan head. Smells of roasted malts and chocolate. Aroma is coffee and chocolate qith some roasted malts on the back end. Body is very full and creamy. Taste is on the sweet side but again reminds me of coffee. This is more enjoyable if you let it do its duty than if you try to figure out how to classify or describe it. A satisfying substantial brew. I’m glad to have picked up 6 of these.

Awesome brew! Pours black with thin caramel brown head. Sweet, chocolate, caramel, vanilla aroma. Silky smooth across the tongue with a sweet caramel / coffee finish. Slightly boozey at the end. Good stuff.

msojka (457) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Pour is jet black with a think layer of dark brown bubbles, not even a head really. Nose is of coffee and booze. Taste is a little bit more subtle, clocking in with a lot of coffee flavor, and nearly gets in bitterness from that instead of the hops.

4.1
Chalsk (1104) - North Caldwell, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2012
On tap at Cloverleaf. Pours a dark black color with caramel colored head. Aroma of caramel, dark fruit, vanilla, chocolate, slight coffee roast and earthiness. Sweet creamy caramel taste with dark fruit underneath. Coffee spice. Nice hop layer. And vanilla on the back end to smooth things out. Booze comes through slightly. Very solid.
