look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a black color. 1/4 inch head of a brown color. Decent retention and decent lacing. Smells of strong sweet malt, coconut, alcohol, hint of vanilla, and a hint of wood. Fits the style of an American Imperial Stout. Mouth feel is smooth, creamy, thick, and has a low carbonation level. There is a slight roasted malt bitterness. Tastes of strong sweet malt, coconut, alcohol, hint of vanilla, hint of roasted malt, and a hint of wood. Overall, average appearance, but great feel, strong body, and good aroma and blend.

Very nice imperial stout from a country whose beers I’m not very familiar with, so this was a nice surprise. Pours a deep dark brown, almost-black color with just a little head and very scant lingering lacing. Smells of rich chocolate cake, medium roast coffee and caramel. Tastes similarly, along with creamy vanilla, malt and a little brown sugar. Nice, smooth, moderately creamy mouthfeel with decent carbonation. Rich and indulgent, though the high ABV is well hidden.

No date, can reads OPNOA-2AH | 4008.
(2018 Batch).

Pours dark brown, nearly black. Not quite motor oil, but a pretty heavy pour. Cold, but not much head to speak of. Some thin strings of tan lace leave their mark on the inside of the glass.

The nose on this is rich and sweet, brownie batter in a glass. Rich chocolate, caramel, and a touch of dark roast coffee on the back end.

Roastier than the nose suggests, but the combination of espresso, chocolate, and caramel covered pecans forms a great balanced pastry stout flavor. The finish is a tad bitter, but overall this was well done.

Not too heavy, a smooth feel with a warm finish and a slightly sticky residue left behind. Low carbonation.

Super dark black brew, topped with a dark brown head of excellent size. Lacing and retention are excellent.

The beer looks thick, and smells just as thick. Roasted pecans, peanuts, chocolate, banana, molasses, and brown sugar. Just a hint of booze.

Not quite as sweet or thick on the palate as the nose implies, but it comes close. Sweet red grapes, brown sugar, banana, molasses, roasted barley, chocolate, nuts. Thick bodied, chewy, easy to drink.

The beer was poured cautiously from a can. Moderate dark tan head. Light spots on the glass. The color is near black where no light passes through the edge.

Cocoa powder aroma. Light chalkiness. Good nuttiness (hazelnuts?).

The taste reminds me of the chocolate covered cherries. There's a sweetness with a strong dark, unsweetened chocolate. Super rich in body and taste. In summary, this is one of the most complex beers. The finish is cherry and bitter chocolate -- delightful! This is a truly special beer.

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

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.

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.
