16th September 2008. Imperial stout in a can! Opaque black beer. Silky smooth with a repressed coffee start and a clear and distinct sweet fruit note of blueberry and blackcurrant. Warming semi dry finish with a little toasted malt in the aftertaste. Goes down very well indeed! Travlr (27328) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 11, 2008
The best thing to come out of a can since Guinness with a widget. Oil can black and thick, smoky and creamy, with chocolate and caramel. Best beer of the night, even if you count the Three Floyds tasting later that evening. cgarvieuk (27059) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 28, 2008

TK2 can at Pre-ZBF ... deep back ... thin brown head .. sweet metalic malt nose .. soft roast .. little chocolate ... little metalic.
Canned (thanks ante!). Pretty much pitchblack colourwith small brown head. Aroma is really smoked and roasted malts along with chocolate, some vanilla, cocoa, coffee and burnt wood. Flavour is the same with some dark dry fruits, mild spices and quite hoppy. Bitter finish. Differs from the impy stout masses. omhper (26356) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - FEB 25, 2008
Canned, thanks ante! Very black with pale brown head. Aroma of chocolate and licorice. Sweet and thick heavily malty with syrup and molasses. Finishes with tarry bitterness. More big and powerful than complex.
