16oz can. No dating information found for canning, but the label identifies this brew as '2023 BATCH 1', and the label describes this as 'IMPERIAL SWEET STOUT WITH WALNUTS, CACAO, AND MARSHMALLOW. CONTAINS LACTOSE. CONTAINS NUTS.'
Black colored body, with a very thin mahogany back lit edge. One thick finger of mocha brown head, which persists. Leaves behind a partial wall of lacing.
Aroma is redolent with sweet marshmallow and milk chocolate. Has a background hint of walnuts. Alcohol vapors.
Taste is strong with sweet milk chocolate, marshmallow, and a late entry of cherry. Base roasted malts include the earthy flavor of walnuts. Fade out in the aftertaste includes all flavors, but mostly the chocolate and marshmallow.
Thicker mouth feel, with stickiness. Higher ABV% is well hidden. Supportive carbonation.
Brewed to mimic Rocky Road ice cream, and it succeeds. Drinks as a sipper mostly because of the sweetness level.

Pint can, poured at 60° into an MIA Beer Company snifter. Pitch black brew brings up a brown head that oozes into the cocktail.
Aroma of childhood malt shop Saturday afternoon. If you don’t remember, you weren’t there.,.
Taste is totally a deconstructed, melted, chocolate Rocky Road ice cream sundae, which deserves to be served with two spoons & a big red lipstick maraschino cherry on top. Yeah., the drizzle of Hershey’s chocolate syrup., crunch of walnuts., The only thing missing is a dollop of whipped cream on top. I get it.,. you should too!
Mouth feel is superbly thick and sweet. Just enough carbonation to dance on the palate. The sweetness lingers on the lips forever. Kissed my wife.,.
Overall, an on-point re-creation of a timeless classic brought you in living color by Angry Chair Brewing.,. Yes! Yes! Yes!

So generally speaking I had found AC to be good but not as great as they are so hyped. This beer changed my sentiments. It is absolutely fantastic, far and away the best rocky road stout I have had. Matte black pour with an oatmeal brown cap. Super dark nutty nose with chocolate ganache, vanilla and a hint of nougat. Taste is liquid rocky road ice cream in the stout. Wow. Feel is sweet but not syrupy, nuts help balance somewhat, really the sweetness on the finish is the only this holding this back, as the maltwork is excellent

The bottle is scary looking, but Raul will not be deterred! I would slay an archangel to sip this thing! Yes, I would even swim in the river Styx to smash this beverage! Rawhide like William S. Hart baby!

Get some!

Poured a black body with minimal head and lace down the glass. Aroma has hints of chocolate and nuts but mainly I get vanilla. The beer is thick yet slick with a slight chocolate ice cream vibe and is easy to drink. The ABV is well hidden and there is a touch of vanilla and marshmallow fluff with a touch of nutty dryness in finish. Easy to drink and sweet but not too much going on in this beer.
