Pitch black Imperial Stout. 1/2" chocalate milk of a head with good retention at 1/4". Leaves full lace and thick rings. Nose is full of rich malt, molasses, tar, and dark fruit. Big dark chocolate, layers of malt...bitter roasted malt. Coffee. Some fruit soaked alcohol. Leafy hops in the finish. Full body. Thick and velvety mouthfeel. Low carbonation. Very good drinkability -- excellent. Thanks to doulos31 for the can.

Worth every penny for a top notch Impy stout, surpassed my procrastonations and hype skepticism.

Appearance is a dark motor oil pour, opaque black brew, has a short chocolate milk colored foam head. Minimal but evident lace.

Smells of dark boozyness, almost rum like and smooth - in a good way. Dark chocolate, sweet dark malts, roasted coffee notes, nice hop balance & support.

Tastes amazing smooth an balanced at 11% abv. Tastes as it smells.
Semi slick mouthfeel, followed by crisp boozyness, full body and medium light carbo.

Cold 12 oz aluminum can poured into pint glass. Beer explodes with motor-oil / cola-black liquid with a beautiful hazelnut-caramel brown head on top which sparkles a moment before falling back into what seems to be a glass of black coffee. I don't get much aroma however -- perhaps it is too cold? Or just too dense? (nope, after warming up, I just don't get much aroma off this)

First sip is immediately rich, creamy, and toasty. Burnt. But it rapidly explodes on the back of the palate with an intense bitterness. The flavor then switches to nutty, but still with a slightly astringent bitterness. Feels pleasantly thick on the tongue.

Overall the Russian Imperial Stout in a can is big, complex, and heady. It's worth it -- I'm impressed.

Can sample- very viscous pour, really lives up to the name. Dark stuff. Reasonable tan head. Nose- licorice, oats and dark chocolate. Taste- incredibly thick bodied. You could cut it with a knife. Very well melded flavours lap over the tongue, big chocoalte and licorce flavour, extra kick from the oats. Surprised to see this is 98 ibu, hops seem to swallowed by the black hole of beautiful malts. Finishes nicely.
