Black as night. Disappearing tan/brown head.

Really nice coffee scent on this. Very sweet with none of the pungent acidity common in big coffee stouts. Hint of coconut and creamy dark chocolate. Maybe some marshmallow but it could just be my imagination.

For one thing, the 9.5% alcohol factor is nowhere to be seen. Nothing messy about this stout. Extraordinarily smooth (yes, smoothness is a flavor descriptor), rich and bold. I don't think I have ever been this happy about a beer purchase.

This is worlds beyond Stone RIS in every dimension, and I would place it above Speedway and Old Viscosity as well for that matter. A bourbon barreled version of this might actually take away from the superb balance OB has pulled off here. I'm surprised at how much I'm enjoying the can aspect - but you can't argue with a beer that retains its temperature as you snifter shot after shot. Also, no worries regarding QC in this format. What an amazing brew!

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.
