Deepest black color with a thin very dark caramel head with short retention.
Wonderful aroma with notes of pecan pie, lots of peanut butter, chocolate and vanilla.
Flavor with notes of cocoa, burnt coconut, toffee, coffee, pecan, maple syrup, peanut butter, hazelnut, wood and vanilla. Dry aftertaste with a roasted and bitter feeling.
Full body with appropriate carbonation. Alcohol of 11% is superbly disguised.
Superior Imperial Stout with lots of nutty flavors (mostly pecan) and aromas. Worth trying.

Burnt motor oil with sticky walls of lace that creepily drip down above a thin mocha ring.

Smell has a pungent sweetness to it, but it's mostly earthy and decadent with mocha, almond, marzipan, hazelnut and chocolate cake batter.

Taste is marzipan, cocoa dusted almond and an unmistakably accurate imitation of vanilla frosted chocolate cupcake with a unique hint of strawberry cereal, like Franken Berry.

Feel is thick and sticky with a thin carbonation and a smacking dry finish. There's a slight grittiness to it here or there.

Presentation: 12 oz. can with no freshness dates. Served in a Willi Becher glass.

Appearance: Pours completely black with a dark tan, one and a half finger head that goes away pretty quickly. It leaves thick lacing across the entire glass.

Smell: Warm aromas of pecans, hazelnuts, milk chocolate, brown sugar and roasted malts come through in the nose beautifully.

Taste: Chocolate cake and pecan pie in liquid form is what best describes the taste of this beer. There are also some coffee and roasted malt notes in the background and the strong ABV comes through loud and clear as well.

Mouthfeel: Thick, smooth, creamy and full bodied with medium-low carbonation. Quite cloying because of all the sweetness.

Overall: This is some delicious dessert in beer form and it's amazing. While not perfect (the sweetness can be cloying and the ABV is way too high, taking away from the taste), this is a damn fine brew.

Poured jet black with no light coming thru,a thinner a deep beige head atop that is gone pretty quickly.Dark chocolate and and roasted pecans in the nose,quite decadent.Flavors of chocolate and frosting and chocolate brownies infused with nuts,full on dessert in a can man I'am loving this beer.The more I drink I get a buttery back end to go along with the full on chocolate.The feel is thick and smooth wich is spot on for the flavor profile.One of the better beers I have had in awhile.

Medium body, smells of marshmallow and a hint of nut. Taste is not very sweet at all. Dark cocoa nibs and a little nutty. Not a bad beer but I wouldn’t have it again. There’s better takes on this out there. Don’t really care for the addition of an artificial flavor. I feel that has skewed my taste rating after reading it before I tried it.

-can. Imperial stout. 11%.

A: Motor oil pour is thick and viscose producing a beautiful dark rawhide tan head with a fizzy topping of ½ inch. Bready textured. The black coloring is dark and sheen.

S: The aroma did not disappoint. Rich creamy chocolate and cocoa was as fresh as an opened package. Chocolate milk, silty deep richness, sweet, with almonds and vanilla give this a deep luscious aroma. Rich sweet coffee with hot chocolate and marshmallows abounds. Thick and lustrous smell breaks the bank here.

T: The flavor was as rich, thick and creamy as the nose led you to believe. Smooth sweet chocolate, cocoa powder, think nestle, along with vanilla coffee and marshmallows provide a rich and sweet experience. Deep lush and very smooth flavor is sweet with a small booziness factor and milky roast to give you the right amount of bitterness and balance. Silty chocolate coffee. Yum.

M: The mouthful was smooth and silty as the flavor. Rich chocolate coffee lines the tongue, with dark espresso highlights of milky roast depth.

O: Overall from can to outstanding. Who would of suspected a small 12oz can would packs such a wallop of flavor usually reserved for big packaging. Vanilla and almonds with a sweet chocolate and marshmallow experience is thick and creamy and rich with an outstanding drinking experience well worth an outstanding mention and seek.

On tap at Brewski in Brisbane. Tasted alongside Prairie Bomb. I prefer Bomb, but this was very good. Slightly sweater, as expected. Hope I have the opportunity to enjoy this again. Have tried in a bottle but is better on tap.

Yes, I know that it is a CAN & not a Bottle, but this is one that I have been curious to add to The CANQuest (tm) since I first saw that it was now available in this serving format. Sue me!

From the CAN: "Imperial Stout with Natural & Artificial Flavors & Caramel Color Added".

I am always a tad dubious when flavorings are being added as adjuncts & especially when they have to use both natural & artificial since they are not that different to begin with. I put my misgivings aside & Crack!ed open the CAN to begin a Gussie Glug. I was surprised by a brimful craft CAN that sprayed beer across my fingertips as a result of the tongue not having anywhere to go once it was pressed inwards by the tab. Onwards! I got a brief two fingers of foamy, fizzy, deep-brown head with low retention & no lacing for my efforts. Color was Black/Opaque (SRM = 44), allowing ZERO light penetration. Nose smelled like a liquefied brownie with nuts! Rich, chocolaty & nutty - that was it in a nutshell. Mouthfeel was big & full, like a dollop had been scooped onto my tongue. My takeaway on the taste was that it was exceptionally sweet. I stand by my mention of nut-filled brownies in liquefied form. PeCANs? I would have guessed almonds, but that could be someone slipping me cyanide again, accounting for the bluish cast to my skin. Boy, this was unrelentingly sweet & coupled with its ABV, one was plenty! Finish was likewise rich, chocolaty & sweet. I envision this as a dessert beer, but YMMV.

I've been putting this beer off for while because of the artificial color/flavor. But I am going to trying to be as objective as possible.

Look, solid deep black stout.
Smell, cocoa puffs straight off the nose, with some peanut butter mixed in.
Taste, chocolate up front, followed by peanut nut bitterness, and a deep dry bitterness on the end.
Feel, smooth and dry. Too dry.

Overall, different than what I expected. Not necessarily bad, but kind of tastes like a chocolate cereal.
