Form the 22 oz can in a snifter via Bluejacket74! Cheers dude!
This unique imperial pours a deep obsidian with a thin dark tea
highlight and a decent head of tan foam that settles to a thick ring,
thin clumping pool, and shows nice light lacing. Nose of maple,
cream, subtle cinnamon, dark cocoa, faint char, and sweet
breaded malt notes----like French toast....hmmm. Flavors
surpass the nose with maple and dark chocolate cream
(like an opera cream) with light char and dark brown
sugars along with brulee and dark fruit elements. Nice
mouth feel; full body, smooth, lightly creamy, and
finishing with a lightly bitter malt and sweet brown
sugar finish.

Overall, a real treat at the end of a nice evening---or the
beginning depending on how one looks at it!

Dessert but not too over the top one needs insulin.

16 ounce can, no dating that I noticed on it. Purchased at the brewery about a month ago. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch and a half frothy tan head that stuck around for a long time. There's a good amount of lacing. Aroma is nice and sweet, the brew smells mostly like cinnamon and brown sugar, along with some bready and roasted malt, caramel, toffee, chocolate and cream. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also the addition of some coffee and burnt/charred malt. But with that being said the sweet flavors stand out in this brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's a bit creamy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. I thought this was a really good dessert beer, I was able to try this on tap at the brewery recently and was very impressed with it so I made sure to buy a can to take home! It's very sweet but not quite to the point of being overpoweringly so. If you like french toast, cinnamon toast crunch cereal or sweet tasting beers in general then I definitely recommend this one, it's one of the best beers I've had this year! I'll have to make a point to try the base Black Hand Stout and other variants in the future.
