To cap off my stout's transfer to keg, I grabbed a recently purchased can from the 4-pack. The can was popped with minimal feedback.

Appearance - body is as black as black gets; tan head starts a bit short of an inch and didn't have much of a life; lace is below average; the oiliness can be witnessed as it is retained on the glass

Smell - dark malts with chocolate pulling through; molasses; vanilla; bit of alcohol laced throughout

Taste - roasted malts enter strong and hold until mid/late; pleasant balance for a big stout at the close; bitterness pushes out the sweetness for the aftertaste

Mouthfeel - carbonation tries to fight through the oily base and both sides are rather satisfying; bit of a hop/alc zing; close is oily; carbonation really flattened out late

Drinkability - I wish the carbonation was handled differently. It could have a bit more push. The flavor profile pulled through.

I love the big stouts. Oskar Blues Ten Fidy has a road to run to catch the best but its good nonetheless.

3/23 - I'm still disappointed by the carbonation, but this sample turned away my doubts about delivering a 4.5 for taste. With a stronger pour, the head was of course bigger and it held a bit longer but it was gone after a third of the beer left the glass. Lacing however improved markedly. It could have been victim of a less-than-perfectly-clean glass. Appearance could be bumped up to a 4.0. Taste, feel and drinkability remained the same.

Not really my thing. The taste is overwhelming and not all that enjoyable. I struggled to finish the can. With that said, my friend who finished it loved the beer. I would personally recommend against this, but given its high rating most people disagree with me. To each their own.
