Thanks to rgilbert for this one.

Poured from a sharp looking 12oz can, best before 10 Jul 2013.

Appearance: Dark brown body with cherry wood tinges; huge, light brown head that really sits in the glass.

Smell: Fresh cocoa beans, coffee, oatmeal cookies, raisins.

Taste: Awesome combo of strong coffee and bitter-sweet cocoa. Liquid chocolate in finish.

Mouthfeel: Good bitterness, a bit acidic, roasted feel lurks in the background.

Overall: Not quite the smooth stout but overall a good stout.

appearance: Black as night on the pour but when held up to the light you can see a deep red. Very nice.

Smell: smells like burnt coffee, but not in an awesome way. Not bad, but not my favorite. Something a little funky as well, almost a little bit sour.

Taste: Wow. Far different from the smell. Beautiful, smooth, sweet coffee notes with a slight bitterness at the back that resembles black coffee more than beer. This is just awesome.

Mouthfeel: Medium-heavy in body with better carbonation than I expected.

Overall: I traded for this and was by FAR the most I've spent on a beer (after shipping costs about $9 for 12oz), and it was completely worth it. This is just fantastic.
