(can from Queen Liquor in Colorado Springs). Black color. Small brown head. Aroma of alcohol and light coffee/chocolate. Flavor of chocolate/cocoa and roasted coffee. Long duration. Light alcohol finish. Slick texture. Soft carbonation. Spare lacing. BarZigKin (511) - San Antonio, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2010
12oz can from Whole Foods. Black, black, black. No light. All is lost. Minimal head formation. Intense aroma of heavily roasted coffee, espresso, semi-sweet chocolate, plums and light malt sweetness. Light, slick, oily mouthfeel with fine carbonation. Initial flavors of fresh coffee, roasted chocolate malts and balanced light sweetness. Secondary flavors of semi-sweet chocolate, slight sour and hint of vanilla. Complexity continues to evolve as the beer nears room temperature. Excellent bitter, lingering finish. I loves me some high quality craft in a can!! Rating #1000 for this beer :o) trailtate (3) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2010 does not count

12 oz can. Pours thick and black., headless. Tons of chocolate, malted milk and licorice in the aroma. Flavor is roasty malt and dark chocolate. A little heat in the finish, but nothing distracting. Slick and thick mouth feel with little carbonation. Insanely drinkable for the huge amount of flavor.

UPDATED: MAY 1, 2010 Can. A black, oily (sic) pour leaves a small, tan head on top. Licorice, cardboard hints, burnt malts, coffee, tar and molasses on the nose. The flavor is pretty much the same, all things dark. The cardboard from the aroma is gone though. Roasted-bitter finish. Full-bodied, oily and with some warmth. Dangerously easy drinkable, tasteful as hell and really good looking. Yet another Oskar Blues beer to bust the myth that canned beer sucks.

Can, at Patricks Pub. Looking lovely in the glass, with its black body under a tan, finger-thick head slowly reducing to a layer of bubbles that leaves lacings. Quite oily pour. Licorice, dark chocolate notes, mocha and alcohol on the nose. The flavor has a good warming alcohol and licorice, hints of tar, mocha and dark chocolate, and a good sweetness even though it’s quite dry. Full-bodied. The alcohol is maybe a bit too present in the finish, else it’s a gorgeous beer indeed. 091211

Can from 2008. Seriously, this beer in a fucking can? Aged? I expected good, because I don’t live under a stout rock. I didn’t expect THIS good. Nose is a rich darkness. Vanilla. Mouthfull is sublime. Velvet thickness. Creamy goodness. Yum yum YUM. Thanks Mike. madvike (3314) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 21, 2010
Can from BelgianBeerGal...thanks Amy! - This stuff pours pure black with next to no head. The smell is wonderful, with whiskey, soy sauce, dark chocolate, and raisins, without much heat or sharpness. The taste is more whiskey sweetness, a touch of toffee, and tons of roasty flavors. There’s some bitter roast and lots of coffee on the finish. This is one of those beers that warms going down the throat and into the belly. Plus, it’s so thick that it feels like it coats as it goes down, but in a good way. Just fantastic.
