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.
Can into a pint glass. Pours black,with a small tan head. Nose is nondescript, as is the taste. Watery and weak. ads135 (4607) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 16, 2016
An okay stout. Sweet, but not overly flavorful. Pours dark with a nice chocolate aftertaste. Tried at the Green Room in 2015. EtTuCthulhu (1391) - Columbia, Missouri, USA - JAN 8, 2015
The beer pours black with a small tan head that fades quickly. The aroma blends roasted and chocolate malts with vanilla, and the taste is mildly umami and a touch sweet with some bitter maltiness coming through in the aftertaste. The palate fuses a medium body, thin and slick texture, and a soft carbonation. edgallow (4211) - nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 29, 2014

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. hayduke (5204) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 22, 2014
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. boozedude (2228) - Des Moines, Iowa, USA - DEC 7, 2013

It poured a dark brown color with a tan head. The aroma was of roast, lactose and coffee. The taste was of roasted malt, hops and coffee with a dry finish. Not bad. BOSSbrewer (2705) - Arkansas, USA - SEP 5, 2013
Very nice. Entered this beer on a different app and I'm not able to import my comments unfortunately.
