L- The beer pours a thick black with a 3 finger mocha head. The head recedes to a thin film and lacing is moderate.

S- Nose is typical for a imp stout. There are big elements of dark chocolate, a touch of sweetness, and an underlying wiff of alcohol.

T-On the palate the chocolate is prevalent with a sweeter overall presence than the nose implies. Alcohol is covered up much better here than in the nose. Hops are present, but overpowered by the malt and I'm ok with that.

F- Mouthfeel is medium plus and rather silky. Carbonation is very restrained after the initial pour.

O- Overall this is a very good Imperial stout that leans a little sweet. I will be on the lookout for this one again.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from a 12 oz. can into a Cigar City Brewing goblet.

A: This looks thick during the pour - an extra-dark black, with a finger's worth of tan head that has good retention. It looks opaque and almost syrupy, but still with a good bit of small bubbles rising up the side. It's thick enough to coat the glass for sure, though it doesn’t quite stain the glassware like Hunahpu does.

S: Rich cacao nibs and baker’s chocolate, pipe tobacco and sweet malts. Milder undertones of booziness, with a coffee or Kahlua aspect, as well as some roasty character. Notes of vanilla and leather.

T: Chocolate and roasted malts, managing both sweetness and a good bit of roasty character. Dry cacao nibs. Vanilla, more tobacco and old leather. There's still some booziness – this drinks almost like it's barrel-aged. It finishes with sticky sweet malts, mild chocolate, and some sticky toffee.

M: A nice heavy and thick body. Fairly low carbonation sensation but not flat. The 13% ABV drinks easier than seems like a good idea at all.

O: While I haven't had them back-to-back, I think this is better than I remember Ten-Fidy being; which likely makes it the best canned stout I’ve ever had. This was really, really tasty. I would love to see this treated or barrel-aged. But even as it is, it’s awfully good.

Thank you Chad!

12 oz. can.

Black body with a half inch of thick, beige head. Aromas of chocolates and roasted malt - beautiful. Too easy on the palate. Nice.

I picked up a can of Stillwater and Casita Cerveceria's On Fleek for $2.79 at The Lager Mill. I've been meaning to try this beer for a while and now that I've found it on the shelves it's time to give it a try, so lets see how it goes. 2017 Vintage. Poured from a 12oz can int a snifter.

A- The can looks good, it's got a nice and unique design that's pretty eye catching. It poured a dark black color that didn't change when held to the light and it had over three fingers worth of fluffy and slightly chunky dark tan head that almost brown and it died down to a thin ring that stayed till the end and it left some nice rings of patchy lacing behind. This is a very good looking beer, I have no complaints at all.

S- The aroma starts off with a lower amount of high sweetness with a fruity aroma being the first to show and it has a nice tart dark cherry like aroma to it with a general fruity aroma in the background and that goes into the alcohol which is noticeable, but on the lighter side. Up next comes the malts which impart some dark malts, roasted malts, charred malt, smokey, sweet malt, and chocolate like aromas with no single aspect seeming to sticking the most and at the end there's just a little bit of generic hop aroma. This beer has a good aroma and it's pretty much just what I would expect from the style.

T- The taste seems to be similar to the aroma and it starts off with a lower amount of high sweetness with that same fruit aspect being the first to show up and it imparts all the same aspects that it did in the aroma with a little bit of tartness to it. Up next comes the alcohol which shows up just a little more than it did in the aroma and that goes right into the malts which impart all the same aspects that they did in the aroma with the smokey and chocolate flavors seeming to stick out the most. Towards the end comes the hops which impart a generic hop flavor that's pretty light along with a slightly higher amount of medium bitterness with some more sweetness on the finish and there's a fruity, malty and slightly hoppy aftertaste. This is a good tasting Imperial Stout, it's got all the key aspects I look for and it's not watery tasting.

M- Fairly smooth, a little cloying, a little boozy, creamy, a little sticky, velvety, full bodied with a medium amount of carbonation. The mouthfeel is good and it works well with this beer.

Overall I thought this was a good beer and I thought it was a good example of the style, it had pretty much all the key aspects that I look for in a Imperial Stout and even though it was just a little rough around the edges nothing really stuck out as not being that true to style. This beer had nice drinkability, I think one is a good amount for me, anymore than that and it might start to be a little too intense for me. What i like the most about this beer is the appearance and how true to style it is, to me those are the highlights of this beer. What I like the least about this beer is that i didn't have a little less sweetness and fruity flavors, to me that would help this beer a little bit. I would buy this beer again and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a good Imperial Stout. All in all I was happy with this beer and to me It didn't have very many weak point and it seemed to better than most new Imperial Stouts that I try. It's one of the better beers that I've had from this brewery and it's a good example of the style. Good job guys, this is one tasty Imperial Stout, keep up the hard work.
