idk how well cans age but this ones about 3 years old. I thought oak aged yeti had the darkest head I've ever seen but I stand corrected, this thing is deep purple like. Pours like motor oil.

Lots of chocolate covered raisins on the nose with dark cherries cinnamon and vanilla. Smells like a fudge store. Incredibly thick and creamy mouthfeel. Flavors are surprisingly rather subdued but that could be the ageing on it. Roasted malts up front with creamy chocolate in the middle. Finishes with bitter coffee and chocolate cover flavored raisins. Impeccably blended flavors and increibly smoothness. Almost no detection of alcohol.

Impressive imperial stout that withstands the test of time of being abused in my liquor store. Good, but worth 11.99 (sale price for being old) for a 4 pack? Eh, possibly. But 14.99? I'll take a yeti. Still good though, best canned beer I've had yet.

A short review since I had this a few weeks back.

A: black and thick, almost like motor oil that is past it's scheduled change. little to no foam when poured into a glass

S: like a cross between cocoa and roasted coffee

T: like a dark heavy coffee.

M: pleasant, not to heavy

D: A good beer, I am not a Russian imperial stout drinker, but I enjoyed it and would recommend it to anyone that like imperial stouts.
