blargimus had sent me a box of CANs and although I was quick to get tone77 his share, I put mine in the reefer to chill and then got caught up with both school and a heavy influx of bottles, all of which are now put to rest.

From the CAN: "Ingredients - Snowmelt, Malt, Patagonian Hops, Irish Ale Yeast, Roasted Barley/Specs - Hand-Crafted, Aluminum CAN, Portable, Recyclable, Good"; "Hand-Crafted Beer"; "Limited Release".

I released it with a mighty Crack, allowing some off-gassing of CO2. The inverted Glug would have made Guinness envious with its pseudo-cascading action. I dislike when I hear people say, "Oh, I don't like dark beer" because color generally has little to do with it, but cases like this one hearten me. It finally settled into a dense cap of two fingers of deep-tan head that sat atop the beer like a muffin top. Color was a deep, dark-brown allowing ZERO light penetration. Nose smelled of dark chocolate, smoky burnt wood, dried dark fruit, charcoal and molasses. Mouthfeel was medium, approaching a fullness on the tongue. The taste was initially very smoky before the dark chocolate broke through. Lacing had already begun to form in the glass. The finish was semi-sweet, quite chocolaty, but with the smokiness lingering after the swallow. Hoo hah! My, but this was good! It was, for me, more of a dessert beer than something that I would put into my cooler. I am glad for the opportunity to have tried it in its limited release.

This is an opaque, black brew with a thin, light tan head. Lacing and is minimal and no rings down the glass, but the head sticks around.

The smell is a delicious mix of roasted malt, chocolate, cocoa nibs and rich coffee.

The taste is rich and smooth, much like the aroma. Sweet. The bitterness blends nicely with the robust malt character.

An excellent canned stout...

look: 3 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

The stout pours a dark brown/black with an off white head.

The aroma is of semi-sweet chocolate, light smoke, and coffee roast.

Taste is similar; semi-sweet chocolate coffee roast, with a slight earthy smokiness, all being finished up by a drying yeast and hop finish.

Mouthfeel is medium which makes this 6.9% beer highly drinkable and pretty sessionable.

Pours a very dark black, and smelled coffee right off the bat. The head went away about immediately. The nose has plenty of coffee and chocolate and some toasted walnuts. Flavor is pretty good. Not too bold like other stouts. Lots of chocolate and coffee and for being over 8%, there are no trace amounts of alcohol. Dry finish with lingering flavors of coffee and chocolate. Very good!
