Poured from the can. Opaque black with a half inch beige head disappears completely leaving faint spots of lace. Strong aroma of dark roast coffee & faint earthy hops. Bold coffee flavor with sweet vanilla cream. Full texture with low carbonation. Very good.

Pours a dark black with a brown head. Smells of chocolate, sweetened coffee, and roasted malts. Taste follows the nose with some sweetness. Medium in body with medium carbonation. Overall an excellent imperial stout.

Brought home from a recent trip to Flagstaff. Poured from a can into a tall snifter. Rich deep dark brown, thin beige head and good lacing. The smell is excellent with cappuccino, vanilla, and chocolate. This carries over to the rich taste that reminds me of a nice fudge. The feel is full and velvety. Very nice beer!

Pours almost no head and the color is more on the dark brown side, than what you'd expect a 9+% stout to be. The aroma was roasted malt, mild chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. In the flavor all of those but quite mild. Bitterness and sweetness were balanced well. Average carbonation, slightly creamy, and medium body. Alcohol was pretty well hidden.

Pours black with two fingers of caramel-colored foam. Great head retention with a few strings of lacing left behind. Aroma is coffee, with roasted and toasted malts below. Flavor profile is coffee with smooth roasted and toasted malts. Nice, smooth flavor profile. Mouth feel features a velvety creaminess that is carried by a medium-thick body. Overall, it drinks as a stout should - from the smooth, robustness of the flavors, to the filling, but smooth, texture. Awesome.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 12oz can.

First had White Russian at the SunUp brewery, Phoenix, on draft into tulip. In a state not known for its beer, this big, complex Imperial Stout, which does not overdo the coffee, stands out.
