$5 a 12oz can @ Brickstore.
a- pours jet black with a small coffee/creme colored head and leaves behind a good amount of lacing.
smells: lots of chocolate, coffee, and hints of cherries. a bit of booziness.
t- a nice, bitter chocolate up front. Then espresso, and ends on a very hoppy note. the alcohol comes through towards the end. none of the cherries i smelled in the taste.
m- thick and viscous, great carbonation. velvety in the mouth. at 10.5% the alcohol is well-hidden but it goes down with some of that alcohol warmth.
o- i've been wanting to try this beer for a while, but even though the price per oz is awesome, i've never been up to cough up $15 for a 4pack (stupid, I know). Now that i've tried it and enjoyed it I doubt I'll have that problem. Great beer and awesome that it's in a can.

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.
