I first tried this with my wife. She is not a stout person! But to my surprise she loved it. I took my first sip and was in love. It pours like it's name makes you think like motor oil. The taste is almost overwhelming so much happening coffee, chocolate, licorice... it goes on and on. It has the best finish and can hold its own to any other stout!

Pours like motor oil with a distinctive taste and feel. This Imperial Stout is not for the faint of heart. As the can says, "this dog'll hunt."

12 oz can "canned on 9/17/14" into pint glass. Black like used motor oil. Nice tan head. Nice.

This stout is something special. Chocolate. Malted milk. Booze. Slippery smooth. Chewy. Enough heft to the mouthfeel to let you know you're drinking a STOUT, dammit. None of this thin, watery crap.

I bought a couple more cans that are going to the cellar for another couple of months. I don't think it can get any better, but you never know....

Try this. It's really good.

Tracking my beers in 2015, haven't had this one yet. But plenty in 2014, and expect to have one soon, readily available for me it seems. I am a hophead but open minded. The first time I had this beer wasn't expecting too much, esp from a can, and I wasn't well versed yet in Oskar Blues beers. Then bam! Eyes opened, eyebrows raised and taken aback! Holy crap, what the heck is this??? Dark, deep robust, all the favors others describe. Dark look, nice pour, strong but smooth dark stout taste. This immediately became one of my top 5. Amazingly well made beer, like liquid oil bliss in a can. I've had others of similar style, but this one stands out. I have since become a huge fan of Oskar Blues, almost all their beers are well made for each style. You gotta try this beer, even if strong beers are not your style, but, as with any beer per the style, keep an open mind. If you know beers well, you will appreciate how well this beer is made.
