Beer review from BA Mag Dec 2007.

An Imperial Stout in a can--you've gotta love that.

Pours a motor oil consistency, ink black, dark as Satan's heartless soulless pit, liquid that's crowned with a thick, rich-looking coffee-colored head--hold the cream and sugar. Aroma is surprisingly soft with some fresh grain, hint of smoke and estery, dark ripe fruits taunting in the back. Creamy mouthfeel, full-bodied, viscous, with a rich malty base. Tangy molasses, molten chocolate cake, major roastiness going on with more smoke, char, double espresso and burnt raisins. Overripe black cherries. Bitter, but not puckering, more of an overall acridness that engulfs the palate. Hop presence is leafy, herbal, earthy, with a hint of lemon--barely detectable in the black chaos. Alcohol is well hidden, but sneaks into your brain eventually with a warming fuzz. Finish is exactly like you just had a double chocolate chip cookie in your mouth.

This one puts the "A" in "Holy crap!"

It's fantastic that Oskar Blues is available in Boise again.

A- Motor oil with a three finger head the sticks around a bit with dark lacing.

S-Sweet roasted malts and alcohol. Mild chocolate nose.

T- Sweet roast malt, chocolate, boozy, great imperial stout. Very mild coffee acidity/bitterness in the finish.

M- Thick, syrupy, medium carbonation. mild alcohol burn.

O-Excellent beer. I've been craving a good imperial stout this spring for some reason and this really hits the spot.
