Brought back east from my Brother-in-Law in Denver.

Appearance: Pours thick and deep black like used motor oil. Not a bit of light gets through the pitch black stout. A light brown head tops the beer and fades fairly quickly to a thin coating.

Smell: Hints of bittersweet chocolate, over ripe dark fruit, toasted raisin bread. A little alcohol comes through as it warms.

Taste: Starts mildly sweet with dark fruit and chocolate. The middle is where the dark roasted malts make an appearance with a nice roasty bitterness, very smooth until the finish wich is full of roasted malt and a big time hop bite that lingers long after the swallow. Alcohol dangerously hidden in the flavor profile.

Mouthfeel: Thick, luscious, creamy, encompasses the entire mouth, velvety. This is what a big stout should feel like in the mouth.

Drinkability/Notes: Definitely one of the better Impy Stouts I've had in a long while. The malts play a balancing act between fruity and chocolatey sweetness and dark roasted bitterness with the hops playing the encore in the finish with a big dose of hop bitterness. Dangerously drinkable at 10% abv. Fantastic in the mouth with a very good aroma profile. The best beer I've had in a can for sure, but also one of the best Impy Stouts I've had regardless of serving vessel. Highly recommended if you can get your hands on it. Thankfully Oskar Blues will be distributing this beyond Colorado in the near future. Seek and Enjoy.
