4.3/5  rDev -1.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Oskar Blues was new to our area, and after reading the reviews on this page, I had to pick some up. Between Ten Fiddy, G'Knight, and Deviant Dales I have to say they are a pretty solid brewery. And I love that they come in cans and I'm pretty sure this is the first time I've ever poured a true heavy duty stout from a can. Ten Fidy pours pure opaque black with just some hints of orange tinge on the edges. Very thin khaki head that quickly dissipates to a thin halo around the edge of the glass. Smell is mostly dark chocolate, mocha, brown sugar and fairly mild as stouts go. Taste is fantastic! Pretty straightforward, chocolate and brown sugar up front, with toasted coffee and malts finishing it off. The coffee really lingers which is great. No booze what so ever. Mouthfeel is creamy, but lighter than most RISs or heavy stouts, and the higher than average carbonation really brings to life the bitter of the coffee and keeps the sweetness subdued. Overall, supremely drinkable and a very solid stout. Not too sweet, some good alcohol warmth in the gut, great coffee flavor, and no metallic hints even poured from a can. Very, very good!

4.64/5  rDev +5.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

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.
