3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Canned 10-21-11@09:21 Served in Tulip glass
Appearance - Dark black, like used motor oil. Had about a finger of brown head, that diminished quickly.
Aroma- Roasted malts and dark fruit. Sweet vanilla.
Tastes - pretty much like the aroma, with the addition of dark chocolate, and very small hint of tartness.
Mouthfeel - medium to full bodied with little to no carbonation.
Overall - good smooth mellow imperial stout that I would definitely recommend. It non offensive, to the first time stout drinkers, to get them kind of into stouts.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from can to glass. Opaque black hue with brown head that lingered. Aroma is roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, caramel, slight smoke, umami, cola. Mouthfeel is fantastic with a medium full body and great carbonation. Taste is sweet throughout with a sharpness following and a sweet roasted ethanol finish. Overall this is a great imperial sweet stout. Plus, I love that its in a can for hiking. "Pack it in, pack it out."

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours black as black can be with a dark leather tan head. Warm dark roasted malts hit the nose like black German bread and bold roasted coffee. Flavor matches the nose but richer and fuller. Definite alcohol presence but not overbearing. Truly delicious.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured from a 12 oz. Can at home. This beer is Awesome. I was really surprised by this beer out of a can. This has changed my thoughts about canned beers. This is a remarkable stout that pours dark black with a tan head. Smells of chocolate and malt. Taste is the same! First is the bitterness of the chocolate and a little coffee in there. The after-taste is just a really smooth, good taste on the back of your tongue. Overall, this beer is is just a solid stout that I would highly recommend.

3.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a can into a snifter.
Appears black with a light brown/tan head. Higher carbonation than expected.
Aroma is sweet. Close to chocolate... Slight roasting/coffee. Repeated breathes give a light bourbon component. A nice touch.
Taste is oak, coffee, and roast with sweet in there somewhere. Possibly chocolate. Some bitterness but this moves into the palate.
Mouthfeel/palate is described as perfect! Bitterness balances sweet in an incredible way. Never never never would say this is 98 IBUs. The carbonation contributes to the after burn however itís comparable to a highly carbonated beer. So Iím saying well done... From a guy who does not like over hopped beer.
Overall one of the best stouts Iíve ever had. Without barrel aging or additional components! Welcome to Minnesota Oskar Blues!

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
WOW. This is a remarkable stout. Completely opaque with a tan head. Very strong chocolate and roasted malt almost makes the alcohol content unnoticeable. Also, I love the can.

3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bought in four pack cans. Poured into glass. Has a very dark thick appearance and the aroma is nice and Carmel sweet smelling.. The taste is very smooth at first. Slight hoppiness during swallowing. But it mellows out quickly for a smooth dark aftertaste. Caramel, coffee, smoke comes to mind.. Imperial stouts are my favorite so I gave this one a high ranking for my preference.
