Flying Dog Brewery Operation Breakfast
What the brewers say
"All the roasted malt flavor you expect ... plus the huge coffee and vanilla flavor of a cafe latte."
What our panel thought
"Sweet vanilla nose rounds out coffee, red-berry esters, and dark-chocolate. In the flavor, roast-malt sharpness tempers mild sweetness, light caramel plays with vanilla and fig-cherry esters. Solidly presented, rich coffee stout. Very mochaccino."
What our editors thought
"Caramel macchiato nose with hefty maple syrup—big, bold, sweet. The sip is more restrained: roast-coffee sharpness slashes through lighter body. More malt support in the middle would put it over the top."
