cracked with a born on date of 10-03-09 thanks to IDateTheFormula, thank you, poured into a tulip, first sip taken out of the can just to see what it was like(advised by a fellow BA to do so)
appearance - black, light carbonation, little head if any, no lacing to speak of, almost the consistency of motor oil
smell - smell of chocolate and sweet roasted malts, and slight coffee
taste - followed the nose, went with a nice sweet malty chocolate, then it moved into a slightly bitter coffee, then a mild sweet alcohol flavor, very delicious
mouthfeel - thick and silky, the light carbonation kept it smooth, this is what i look for in a texture of a russian imperial stout, top notch
drinkability - while this is a heavy beer it is still very drinkable, just over a long period of time, if i had access to this on a regular basis, it would be something i enjoyed over the entire duration of a tigers game, when im in a state where this is sold i will be picking up a case of this

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.
