Pours black with thick light tan head in a Raise Your Pints Mississippi snifter.
Smell is dark chocolate, darkly toasted malts, coffee, toffee, vanilla and smoky oak.
Taste is dark toasted malt and chocolate. Smoky oak and an ash character come through. Bitterness lingers on the tongue but is mild.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Mild to medium carbonation.
Overall this is a good stout.

Love when I can find great beers in a can. I traded to Exiled (in October of 2011!) to get this beer, thanks a bunch! Poured into my perfect pint.
Appearance: Not jet black, but dark brown with red highlights. This is the first time, other than gushers, that I have gotten a four finger head. Rocky, tan, and settles slowly, leaving spotty lacing. Very nice looking.
Smell: Coffee and cocoa with mineral hints. Roasted malts.
Taste: Taste follows smell. More chocolate than coffee. Great roast flavor, without pushing the envelope. A nice roast bittersweetness at the finish.
Mouthfeel: The body is medium with good carbonation. Strong enough to be a factor, but never gets in the way.
Overall: I really enjoyed this beer. Totally different than Ten Fidy. I really wish this was available here.

I had this on tap as part of a flght of 5 Texas beers for $10 at the Flying Saucer Beer Emporium in downtown Houston, Texas. 5oz portions of 5 different beers.
The beer had a very dark brown color to it, but only had a thin tan rim on top for a head and even that dissipated quickly. Carbonation looked lively.
Coffee, toffee, and chocolate smell.
Roasted malt flavor with hints of coffee and chocolate. A nice bitterness adds balance, and a little bit of cream flavor makes it even more interesting.
A little on the thin side for a stout, and more carbonated than most, but I still liked what smooth, creamy texture that remained.
A very enjoyable stout from a brewery I never head of before trying this offering.

Poured from a 12 oz can into a Half Acre tulip.
A- pours a dark brown with a 2" tan head. Littered with blotches and large bubbles of lacing.
S- big roast aroma, some coffee and chocolate.
T- light dark chocolate, roasted malts, and some pine bitterness.
M- medium body and carbonation. Lighter creamy feel with nice smooth finish.
O- very nice drinkable stout. Watch out because you can drink a few of these easily until the abv would catch up to you.

This beer pours a dark mahogany, not quite black, with a one finger head, no retention and no real lacing. The nose is a very powerful coffee, and roasted malt. Mouthfeel is pleasant, but nothing special. The taste is a big sweetness on the front, maybe molasses flavor, giving way to a biting bitterness with notes of coffee, dark chocolate, roasted nuts, and a little alcohol. Overall a nice offering.

A: Poured a deep, deep brown with good carbonation leaving behind a small dirty wigte cap which fades fast leaving a faint rings and few bubbles
S: Day old Folgers coffee with a hint of chcolate
T: Confused. Is this an Imperial Brown or Imperial Stout? The backbone of brown malt, light coffee, toffee really makes me think thing this is a Imperial Brown, the only difference is the addition of coffee.The finish is highly carbonated with a lgering toffee, coffe and nuttiness. Rather clean and dry.
M: Medium bodied, a tad bit over carbed for a Imperial Stout? Body is a little thin for the style
O: This beer is somewhat tasty and enjoyable but I am big stcikler on BJCP guidelines. This beer as a Impy Stout is pretty far off.
