3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Super rich dark brown coloured body with a oily sheen on top and a very small tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, alcohol, nuts, lactose, cream, coffee, oak and quite a bit of vanilla - no real alcohol coming off the smell though. Medium-bodied; Relatively thinnish feel right afterwards with a lot of roasted malt and coffee flavours, some light oak, caramelised sugars and vanilla with a hint of earth and mushrooms, but fairly mild near the end. Aftertaste hits the roasty notes with coffee and earth, all with a pleasant sweetness, but no real body nor depth or complexity make this one-dimensional. Overall, a decent imperial stout at best and lacking in complexity and body with some decent flavours, just nothing different/drastic or complex throughout the entire beer. Still, itís always nice to have an imperial stout in a can, especially one from half the country away. I sampled this twelve ounce can purchased from Specís in Dallas, Texas on 11-November-2015 for US$3,46 sampled at home in Washington on 08-September-2016.

Comes malty dark brown out of the can with no fuss, little carbonation, and looks a bit oily. Settles to black in the glass. Minimal carbonation and foam. Aroma is cocoa, lactose and dark roasted malt. Flavor is lactose and chocolate. Finish is a little powdery.

12 oz can from Specs, drank at home. Pours pitch black with small tan head. Chocolate notes definitely present in both aroma and taste. Not as heavy or "soft" as expected due to rising being a milk stout. Still very enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Roasted malts, chocolate and coffee grounds with a touch of soy sauce . Rich, thick body with an average amount of carbonation, flavor is all about the coffee grounds and bitter chocolate. Overall itís a nice brew.

Can. Pours...hell, thatís not beer, thatís ink with a latte head, and itís sexy-beautiful. The nose is what an angel would smell like if she was made of chocolate and beer. I canít even write a normal review on this. I just want to put on a Barry White record, turn the lights down low, and just read poetry to it. Something from the English Romantics, maybe. Browning, or Shelley. Not Byron. Dude had no class. This beer needs class. Damn.

Courtesy of noisefights... Pitch black pour out of can, with thin tan head... Roasted malt and milk chocolate nose... Flavor is rich and chocolatey, creamy mouthfeel... Light smoke and bitterness on finish... Little off flavor on palate... Pretty easy to drink for 10%
