Last week we finally finished off the last of the beers we picked up in Philly (back in April) with Flying Fish Imperial Espresso Porter. It poured black with a tan head. The aroma was mostly coffee with some chocolate in the background. There was a bit of a syrupy mouthfeel but it wasn’t too thick. The strong coffee aroma became a more subtle taste that combined with a slightly burnt roasted character for an interesting aftertaste.
I loved this beer so much, I totally hijacked it after Giancarlo poured it and drank more than half. It was chocolatey and delicious. I savored its smooth malty goodness and am so upset that we can’t get it here in New York!
