The first time I took a wif of this beer, I knew it was special. The color, after pouring it in a snifter, was pitch black with a cocoa head. The taste was strong with malt and chocolate, and I could taste the alcohol on the back end, but it didn't linger as long as I would expect. Definitely one of my favorites. Bought a case of it after the first tasting... Cheers

12oz can (canned 10/3/2013) poured into a snifter. Pours oily black w/ a big reddish mocha head that settles to a soft, velvety layer of foam. This thing absorbs light. Really great looking beer.

Aroma is rich dark roasted malt, bitter chocolate, and cocoa. Smells really nice and clean with a subtle sweetness in the background.

Taste is dark, roasty, and bittersweet, with a hint of dark fruit. This is one rich, dense, concentrated brew. The sweetness is balanced nicely by the roasty bitterness.

Mouthfeel is slick and oily with a a sharp bitter finish. Seductively smooth.

Overall, a very nice imperial stout. Everything works together nicely. Well done.

What about Huell? Thats what it says on the bottom of the can...I love it, but if you don't get it then go read another review...go on now.

Ok...

A - Black as night with no head.

S - Smells of toasted chocolate with a slight coffee scent.

T - Taste of roasted chocolate and slightly of coffee...but very delicious.

M - Very smooth, minimal carbonation.

O - No wonder there are issues finding this at times...it is one of the best imperial stouts on the market and is and will be a staple of my collection for many years.
