3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz can. Pours a clear dark brown body with a small fizzy brown head that left some light lacing and retained as a thin film. The nose is quite delicious, loaded with dark roasted coffee and black malt. Some hops in there, but they hardly make it past all the coffee. The flavor is almost more coffee than beer, which is just how I like my coffee beers. Seems fairly light for an Imperial Stout, or maybe the coffee overpowers the malt and alcohol somewhat. Very nice balanced bitterness between the hops and the malt bitterness. This is really easy drinking, I could drink a few of these. Medium bodied with nice soft carbonation. This is one of those beers that I wish I had regular access to. Iíd probably drink a good bit of this if I could get it locally.

12-ounce can shared by yourefragile in line at the BA Sexual Chocolate release. Really nice design on the can; very appropriate for the day and time. Served in a SAVOR snifter.
Pours a very dark brown with a light tan head and a ring or two of lacing on the way down. Thin collar throughout. The nose brings loads of coffee along with a bit of cream and some chocolate. The flavor consists of the same, with the coffee taking the front following by a bit of cream and dark chocolate. Could have been a big hit, though the mouthfeel takes things way back, as it was terribly over-carbonated, ruining what I imagine otherwise would have been a nice creamy mouthfeel. Roast is there in the flavor as well. Pretty good.

can-pours deep brown almost black with a small kacki head that fades pretty fast. nose of coffee, dark chocolate and some copper metallic notes. flavors are coffee and metal. This can i sampled was a bit old i think-i bought the beer months before i sampled it. maybe have been the source of this problem. However, with that said, i dont think its all that great of a crafted beer so even fresh, it wouldnt be all that great. the finish is long and metallic.

Truly an amazing brew. And better yet, you tastes good straight from the can, around the camp fire.

Had a can of this and I think you could taste the can. It had a bit of rosemary (?) on the nose and the flavour was of coffee. A bit thin with some co2 prickle also evident which brought it down for me.
