I am blown away by this imperial stout! One of the best I have had in a long time. Had heard great things about this one, was not disappointed.
A: Oily black with a thin, tan head. Great lacing.
S: Coffee, toffee and a hint of vanilla.
T: Coffee, chocolate up front with vanilla coming through - delicious. Complex flavors, yet very balanced. The flavors are bold, as one would expect from a good imperial stout. It finishes with a slight toffee flavor which is very nice-not over done.
MF: very creamy and smooth.
O: Unbelievably good! Don't let the fact that this beer is in a can scare you away. It is amazing. Though the price of the four pack is a bit high, it is worth every penny.
Serving type: can

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.
