4.68/5 rDev +6.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
A: Thick, pitch-black motor-oil liquid with a thin dark khaki head. Maybe 1/2-finger at most.
S: Sweet, but dark. Some bourbon in the aroma. Dark cherry, molasses. Not much coffee, more of an espresso aroma, very dark and sweet.
T: Very similar to Old Rasputin. Dark molasses, dark cherry, figs. A little dark chocolate in there as well.
M: Smooth and creamy. Silky smooth, with a very mild burn in the aftertaste.
O: The BA crowd didn't steer me wrong with this one. A bit pricey ($15/4pk), but worth the occasional treat. A bit thicker and more tasty than Old Raspy, so I don't mind paying the extra $$. Very odd to see such a terrific treat in a can. A solid A+ overall.

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.
