12 oz. can into snifter

A: Deep dark brown to black. Thick finger of tan head. Good head retention.

S: Roasted notes, molasses and some chocolate.

T: Roasted malts immediately, bordering smoky. Rich sweetness developes, fills the palate and then dissipates back on the palate, returning to smoke. A little alcohol warmth down the throat but certainly not hot.

M: Very full mouthfeel, appropriate carbonation. Overall quite creamy and not too sharp.

O: A very solid RIS, certainly the best available in a can! Will be a go to for camping, tailgating and any other time a can is more practical.

Just a Awesome stout. Its the gift that never quits giving. Every time I have it I am reminded, yes, there is such thing as a superior stout over all the other good stouts.

12 oz can, poured into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a half of a finger of caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved into a halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed a few wispy clouds of foam that settled atop the beer.

Aroma: I’m stuffed up at the moment (I know that being in that condition is not ideal for reviewing a beer) so I’m not getting much out of the aroma, but other reviewers have noted aromas of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, subtle smoke, subtle licorice and boozy alcohol.

Taste: Brilliant!! Massive roasted malt up front, imparting notes of toasted dark bread, some subtle coffee notes and smoke, followed by tons of brown sugar-like sweetness, a touch of dark chocolate, a touch of licorice, and a touch of floral hops. Absolutely delicious!!

Mouthfeel: Chewy and smooth as silk as there is no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 10%, there is quite a pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: Wow, just wow!! What a beer! What a stout!! MASSIVE, bold flavors, all wrapped up in an extremely smooth and creamy beer. Truly one of the best non-barrel-aged imperial stouts that I’ve had and equal to Bell’s Kalamazoo Stout, Founders’ Imperial Stout, Great Lakes’ Blackout Stout and Left Hand’s Wake Up Dead. Truly Spectacular!!
