Can > Mason Pint

A - Pours total black, motor oil style, absolutely no transparency. Thin fizzy half a finger of rich brown head, no lacing.
S - Deep dark roasted malt, big smokey undertone throughout, dark coffee, cocoa, some slight burnt caramel.
T - Tons of booze, too much in fact. Lots of sweet roasted malt, kinda like a burnt pecan pie. Some rich baker's chocolate. A slight fig and cherry quality as well. But the more I think of it, that burnt pie crust flavor stays and does not go away.
M - Incredibly creamy smooth, but rich and sticky.
O - Good RIS, appearance is awesome, but thats really the best part, flavor is overly sweet and boozy for my tastes, could benefit with a little more dry hop, maybe even a tad more smoke to tone down the sweetness.

look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

12 oz. can obtained in the greater Washington D.C. area, 2011 vintage, poured into my *** snifter glass, drank 9/29/13 over an hour. big alcohol legs as expected at 10.5% ABV

A: 3/3 - pitch black, no clarity, poured with a creamy mahogany head that settled into a subtle glass lacing with some froth on top. moderate carbonation (impressive for 10.5% ABV!)

S: 10/12 - milk chocolate, coffee and alcohol notes predominate for me

T: 18/20 - on the anterior tongue, there's a mild-to-moderate bitterness supplied by the chocolate and roasted malts; in the middle of the mouth, it's mostly creamy malt complexity with some residual alcohol (but much less than the 10.5% ABV advertisement); surprisingly, little-to-no aftertaste inviting sip after sip

M: 4/5 - incredibly creamy mouthfeel, especially impressive in the context of moderate carbonation

O: 9/10 - one of the top 5 American imperial stouts for me, which never fails to impress and live up to others with more hype; if this beer was rarer like Dark Lord, Darkness or Marshal Zhukov, it would be as highly fetishized; although expensive (~$15/four pack in the greater Washington D.C.); it's definitely worth at least a four pack every year with at least two for immediate drinking and two for aging; this two year vintage has only improved and will likely continue to improve with age --> highly recommended even if cost prohibitive!

TOTAL = 44/50
