Can. Pours deep black with athin brown head with minimal lacing. Aroma of roasted malt with a bit of candy sugar. Flavor leans towards the sweet side, chocolate with a bit of biter roasted malt, licorise, brown sugar and a touch of espresso. Thick mouthfeel, kind of like a milkshake. Nice stout, very drinkable. pede7 (5) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 14, 2009 does not count
Wow. Intense as you might expect. Had this awhile ago so the memory of the flavors eludes me but...the best part was how the waitress accidentally grabbed my glass off the table and then refilled it for free. BONUS!
the picture does the head justice; dark as night and thick as a...wait for it...foggy night. one to savor. daleharshman (1064) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 14, 2009
On tap at Hamilton’s. Pours pitch black and thick with only a thin layer of brownish head. Moderate aroma of roasted malts with bits of medicine-y anise. Strong flavor of espresso that has been slightly burnt. Flavors of dark chocolate follow. The bitterness beats out the sweetness, though it is hard to believe that this measures all the way up to 98 IBUs. I get some booze in the mostly bitter finish. I wonder how this tastes from the can. sigma23 (380) - , Maine, USA - APR 14, 2009
ok i was blown away with this one. pours pitch black and thick like oil. just the littlest tan head around the rim. aroma is tons of chocolate, coffee, rich roasted malts, and toffee. drinks sweet up front with sweet chocolate pushing right through with some creamy toffee and caramel with it also. just a little coffee is tasted and it finishes sweet with a chocolate after taste. fantastic stout, and from a can no less. hombrepalo (1971) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2009
Lent is over! Made it. This one was sent via trade by Alldaydrinker! Thanks buddy. Impy stout out of a can! So glad to have finally tried it. Aroma is of burnt caramel. Pours a scary motor-oil black with a brownish-red head that doesn’t stick around very long. Achohol presence is makes itself known, and the flavor has a bit of heat to it due to this. It’s big-bodied and has a slightly moderate hoppy finish. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy with a well-balanced amount of carbonation. Good, but I don’t think this is worthy of 4’s.

On tap @ Shady McGrady’s. Pours a pure black color with a small, dark brown head. Aroma of candi sugar, very sweet and malty. Fresh roasted coffee and bittersweet chocolate dominate; slightly thick, oily body. Tasty, and @ $4 a pop, its a great deal! can8ianben (1538) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 11, 2009
Aroma of smoke and smoldering sugar - actually reminds me of boiling maple syrup with my grandpa. Appearance is jet black with a very thin tan head. Out of the can I almost thought it was flat. Had to give it a very aggressive pour just to get some foam on top. Flavor of molasses, toffee, chocolate, coffee, apples, plums. So rich and intense, even right out of the fridge. Mellows and really turns into an impressive beer as it warms. Bravo once again Oskar Blues. JoeTheYounger (1183) - Lake Arrowhead, California, USA - APR 11, 2009
Very dark and rich. Smells like roasted chocolate/coffee and roasted malts. Leaves great after taste in the mouth and coats the glass very nice. Awesome stuff! andersand (529) - Malmö, SWEDEN - APR 11, 2009
UPDATED: APR 27, 2009 Nice fat/thick brew, black as the night with a big creamy brown head and a big creamy ,smooth mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet and generous yet blanced by a big roasted bittersweet finish. Loads of caramell, roasted barley and toffe flavours. Adam77 (457) - Eastampton, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2009
This thing is going to age great. Absolute zero chance of sunlight. Poured milky black with brown head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee. Chocolate and caramel swirl with some roasted coffee.
