This poured a very inky black with a dark tan head. Impressive. Aroma is big Bourbon, fudge, marshmellow and light ash. Flavor was sweet oak, fidgety chocolate, lightly boozy and bitter but very tasty and impressive overall.

12 ounce can thanks to Boisebeerguy. Pours a dark brown with a caramel head. Not a thick head. Plenty of lacing. The aroma is amazing! I love the smell of a barrel aged stout. It has that boozy smell with a little coffee sweet molasses smell. Wow. Super mollasses slightly sweet chocolate with a nice liquor taste. Wonderful goodness in a can! Thick and oily with a great ending! Iím going to kiss this beer when I finish it.

It was surreal to watch it pour out of the can, because Iíve never seen anything so dark and syrupy in a can. Rich, slightly bitter, bitingly roasty, a little chocolate, very good.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can. Pours out black topped with a tan/brown head. Nose is sweet milk chocolate, whisky, oak, and vanilla. Taste is as the nose with a faint barrel, chocolate, booze, vanilla, and more sweetness. I love the fact that this good BA imp stout is in a can. The simple silver can looks awsome aswell.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can courtesy of JohnGalt1, thanks! Very dark brown color, thick and viscous. Sizeable brown head after an aggresive pour, but it fades quickly. The aroma is good; a nice blend of oak, char, bourbon, and malt. Good balance of sweet and char. That same balance holds up well in the taste. Good malt bill compliments the roast and barrel notes, along with a very agreeable amount of chocolate. The huge plus here is the brewer giving me something I (almost) always want: A big, brawny RIS in a small format. Not overbearing that I need to slowly sip, but big enough to savor moderately. If it was available locally, Iíd drink this all the time.
