From a can dated 1/3/14 that I picked up today...aged by Whole Foods...thanks guys.

I've had this in the taproom before, and, while it was good, I don't recall it being this good. Perhaps my tastes have matured. Whatever the case, this was a real treat...a perfect beer to sip on. I don't detect the smokiness that others have described ("not that there's anything wrong with that")...just roastiness, as expected and appropriate, with some very earthy notes. I'm not a big fan of sweet beers, but this one manages to tread the line...I'm almost turned off by it, but yet it still manages to be so good. Lovely.

355ml Can from Brewdog Edinburgh (£9.00):
This beer was a pretty impressive offerings from Oskar Blues yet again. Drinkable, and more importantly enjoyable, throughout with plenty of flavour packed into the can whilst managing to keep a good balance too. For an imperial stout I didn't think the beer was overly complex but I did like it, I just don't think it's one I'm likely to return to all that often since there are several other American brewed imperial stouts out there that I prefer to this one.

When you pour this beer, it's a deep, thick Black with a Tobacco coloured head with absolutely great Head retention for this style. It even leaves sticky lacing on the sides of the glass! I don't think I've had an Imperial stout, apart from this one that had such great retention and actually left lacing on the glass! On the nose there's lots of Roasty Malt notes, Coffee, Chocolate and a light bit of Alcohol in the background. How does this beer taste? Where do I start?! Smokey flavours, Raisins, Roasty Coffee and Chocolate notes, Light toffee and a touch of sarsaparilla and molasses on the finish. The beer is quite thick and viscous, lightly carbonated and finishes Medium dry.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a tulip glass.
Aroma- HMMM, coffee, caramel and malt. fantastic.
Appearance- Looks like I just poured my old engine oil into a glass (that's actually a compliment)
Taste- The best Russian Imperial Stout I have ever had. I could also say the only RIS that I cared for. But this awesome tasting.
Palate- A heavy brew with moderate carbonation, has a creamy texture and a good alcohol feel after the swallow.
Overall- World class, I now know why people flip over this beer.
