Live review. I literally just returned from my favorite bottle shop, Save-On in Mentor, Ohio. I purchased a four pack for $13.99 from the fridge near the back of the store. Wally and his sister (her name escapes me) were very good to me as always. Poured into a clean, clear glass.

A Oil black body under a dark brown (that is DARK brown!) creamy head. I cannot imagine that the look of this beer could be any better. I also enjoy the can that resembles an oil can. The similarity cannot be a coincidence. 5.0

S Dark roast malt and some chocolately goodness but this is a rather distant smell. I had to attempt two or three smells in order to get that scent. 4.0

T/M Wow. This is one great Stout! Dark roast malt, velvety sweet malt goodness predominate. I did not count on the slight effervescense of carbonation in the feel but it is welcomed. This is such a big, huge beer that describing it is difficult. This is one of the deepest, darkest beers that you will find. The taste and the feel are very hard to improve on. 4.5

O/D Drinkability is not that high. The ABV is over 10% and it is such a huge beer. Really, I would only handle one of these in an evening. Overall this is a world class stout. 4.0

Notes: Thanks to Oskar Blues for finally distributing to Ohio. I had to travel to Atlanta before now to find this. Now it is at my favorite bottle shop!

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.
