sayravai (4707) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 18, 2008
(Canned) Extremely black with a small, but lasting, brown head. Aroma of roasted coffee, salty licorice, no alcohol. Very smooth, very licoricey, very coffee-malty flavor with milky sourness, but not much burnedness. Medium to full-bodied, moderately bitter palate with soft carbonation. A very smooth and balanced Impy with no alcohol flavor and the blackest color possible.

Can thanks to Beercellar. Holy S@#T, I cant believe this just came out of a can!!! Beautiful black pour with chocolatey brown head, which sticks around quite a while. Big coffee and chocolate on the nose. Flavor is the same with a good roastiness and some awsome piney hop bitterness. This ranks up there with some of my favorite impy stouts.

When you drink this beer you will not believe that it is from a can yet alone one without a wiggett... this almost matches up to my favorite stouts bells and dogfish so if you enjoy those you will enjoy this.

afireinside96 (923) - Mountville, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2008
can. though it is a very nice imperial stout, it may be the weakest beer from Oskar Blues. pours exactly like used motor oil, thick dark brown with a few dark brown bubbles floating on top. smell is of espresso, anise, and roasted malts. flavor is much the same with some piney hop bitterness and a slight creaminess. mouthfeel is thick and coating, the bitterness is detectable for minutes after the last sip. very good, but not as good as Ol Chub or Gordon.

FatPhil (15151) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 17, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 27, 2016 330ml can (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Bitter and Sour 2008)
Jet black, thick creamy espresso head. Sweet bacony aroma - bacon fat at that. Some coffee too. Fairly soft palate. Immediately on swallowing it assaults all corners of the mouth frantically. Wild stabs at oiliness, tar, coffee, hops, and ashtrays all jump in and out of focus. At best its a great impy, at worst its a little bit over the top but not offensive. Perhaps a bit astringent if you dont expect the next sip, but the rest of the time it smothers and coats the tongue in a horribly tempting way. So full of coffee. Sure, theres alcohol too, but Ive got to forgive them because of the rest of the experience.
Rerate: 355ml can - thanks Martjoobolut! (7:5:7:4:14=3.7)
Wheres the oiliness, the tar? Thinner taste too, just burnt. Still bloody decent, but not at the peak of my memory (I have actually had it several times previously)

lamas (1620) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 16, 2008
Can. A heavy, motor oil-thick pour with a small dark-mocha head. The rich aroma features plenty of roasted coffee, chocolate, vanilla beans and hints of alcohol. Tons of grapefruits and pine needles along with more milk-chocolatey notes come out as it warms up a bit. Super-smooth and thick, creamy body. Starts off with lots of rich dark chocolate, roasty coffee, caramel and some vanilla. Finishes with a massive hoppy bitterness that lingers along with the subtlest hint of warming alcohol. Powerfully good shit.

Gachupines (1252) - USA - MAY 16, 2008
Black with a dark tan head. Aroma is of chocolate. Taste is chocolate and roasted malt. Some bitterness in the finish, but overall fairly smooth compared to some Imperial Stouts. Quite good, and doesnt have the strong alcohol bite that sometimes goes along with this style.

mjs (6832) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 5, 2011 (Can at Pikkulintu - canning date 2010-12-02) The beer poured pitch black. Its head was medium sized and brown. Aroma had liquorice, roastedness, chocolate and alcohol. Palate was full bodied, thick and warming with medium carbonation. Flavours were roastedness, chocolate, liquorice, sweetness, ash, hops and bitterness. Aftertaste had sweetness, liquorice and bitterness. Rarely I get to taste a beer as thick as this and also a beer that is a the same time really drinkable and good tasting.

Malt and light roasted aroma. Black color with a small brown head. Smooth malt taste in the beginning with a bitter malt finish. Creamy palate.
