look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

12 oz. can poured into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a black color with a thin brown film, mostly around the edges. Looks quite still, though there's a little cluster of bubbles sitting there quietly on top...

Smell: The aroma first strikes me as being both rich and warm, without imparting any particular flavors to me. The more I sniff, I recognize some sweetness. Not quite vanilla, and not quite caramel, but no matter, it smells nice.

Taste: Nice toasty malt flavor. The same sweet flavors that I detected in the aroma are present here, nicely offsetting the somewhat bitter roasted flavors. Very nicely balanced. There's surely some alcohol in there, especially at the finish, but it is kept mild and doesn't overhwhelm. Despite being served fairly cold, the flavors didn't seem very muted at all at the start.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, with a bit of pleasing graininess. Medium- to heavy-bodied, but not terribly dense. Light, tingly carbonation.

Drinkability: Strong, but heck, it is an IRS. The easiest-to-drink Imperial Stout that I've ever had, hands-down.

Finally shelled out the big bucks for a 4-pack of this, and I'm quite happy with it. The flavor is very nice: it isn't too bold, so it leaves room for subtleties in an oft over-the-top (or at the least, rather extreme) style. The alcohol doesn't make me shudder either. Very glad I picked this up; great job, Oskar Blues!
