First had: on tap at Liquid Hero

Dark brown-black pour, with a small tan head that sank to a ringlet. Nice nose, plenty of vanilla, with a dark malt roastiness. Strangely, the taste didn't quite live up to the aroma. The vanilla seemed less pronounced, standard roasty malts, with a fair amount of bitterness in the finish. Body was medium, maybe a bit on the thin side for a stout, but still robust enough to be enjoyable.

I have been slacking where The CANQuest ™ is CANcerned, reducing and eradicating my interminable bottle backlog, but I am now rededicated to the real mission, which is to review EVERY CANned beer in existence. I love the guys at Liquid Hero and have even been over to visit their digs in York, PA. When they began CANning, they knew of my affinity for beer in metal cylinders and began bringing me some at various events. Things bogged down while awaiting picture approval, but now, all is in readiness.

From the CAN: “When we were brewing in our garage, Adam was our very first Brew Pal; helping us brew beer on several occasions. Once, he asked if we could brew a stout. So we did and shared it with him and we simply named it Adam’s Stout. The recipe has changed since then, but the name stayed the same! Cheers! [undersigned] Matt [,] Josh & Christian”.

There are so many things that I love about CANned beers, BPA be damned! One is the auditory nature of the Crack!, usually followed by the visual of looking into a brimful CANtainer, proceeded by an inverted Glug, resulting in a pseudo-cascade. This one had all of the above! The three-plus fingers of dense, deep-tan showed no signs of letting up, so I took a diacetyl rest and surfed the ‘net while waiting for it to fall. At last! But look at all of that sticky lacing it left behind! Who is going to clean that up? Adam had better plan on coming by, since it was his beer to begin with. Color was Opaque Black (SRM = 44), allowing zero light penetration. Nose was very roasty and smoky, but I was not really smelling much in the way of vanilla. Mouthfeel was full and creamy. The taste was not as bitter and charcoal as I girded myself for, based on the nose. Instead, it had more of a coffee ice cream flavor. I like coffee ice cream, so there was no problem in terms of taste. However, if you were expecting a vanilla-driven experience, you would be in for a letdown. Finish was dry, smoky, slightly bitter, but definitely a stout.
