I was looking at the list of top imperial stouts on this site and came across this beer. My local distributor had it and I was surprised to see it was in a can. That threw me off a bit, but given the good ratings it has received on the site I decided to give it a try.
All I can say is wow.... it poured a very dark/black colour with no head whatsoever. The combination of flavors was very good with hints of chocolate and espresso in it. There was some sweetness on the tailend of the beer but it was not as bad as other imperial stouts I have tried. Overall an excellent beer.

Poured from the 12oz. can into a snifter.
This amazing brew purs a deep, inky and oily black with about a one-finger head that fades into some lingering foam around the egde. Only a bit of spotty lacing.
The aroma is roasty malt -- the darkest of dark chocolate, roast coffee, rich black tea. There are also notes of dark dried fruit .
The taste is an assault on the tongue. Intense. Chocolate, a bit of sweet toffee and raising and then big, bitter dark chocolate. The lingering, drying bitter note on the tongue has hints of more chocolate and roast coffee and malty Assam tea.
The mouthfeel is creamy and sticky with a bit of carbonation as well.
Overall, just wow. This beer does not disappoint. One of the best stouts I've tasted.
