Appearance:
Dark body with a dark head, a thick foaming head that could even stop light in its tracks. Thick lacing, thick enough to stop hell in its ever expanding reign of good and did I mention it looks sexy!
Smell:
Dark fruits, spices and caramel mixed with some mild chocolate and fig. Strong roasted malts and banana licorice!
Taste:
Roasted malts, chocolate, spicy and filled with mild hopped flavors and caramel hints followed by licorice as you swallow.
Mouthfeel:
Medium to thick bodied and it really envelopes your tongue and just awakes your taste buds.
Overall:
An excellent example of an Imperial Stout and very fun to drink, great tasting and well worth the wait i finding this one. If you see buy it. Then drink it.

I've had this beer on tap and I'd probably give it a 4.5. But the can version, which I've had twice is just not the same in my book. Just a 4.

This is a big, thick, creamy, delicious meal of a beer. A rich and decadent beer best enjoyed as dessert.

Leave it to Oskar Blues to do a bang up job with a canned stout.

Poured from a two month old can into a stemless wine glass. Abundant milk chocolate brown head with excellent retention.

Silky mouthfeel, creamy and almost nitro level smoothness out of a standard 12 oz can. Amazing job by the masters of craft beer canning.

The nose is definitely boozy, and there's a bit of a black licorice thing happening. Molasses on the nose. Big roasted malts commensurate with the style. Subtle dark chocolate note as it lingers in the mouth, very nice. A moderate drying effect on the sides of the tongue after each sip that is extremely pleasant.

This is a great stout by a deservedly well regarded brewer. Take one in the can today!
