2900th review! 22 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled in 2014. Pours dense pitch black color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense dark brown head with solid retention, that reduces to a spotty lace cap that lingers. Some slight lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, licorice, dark bread, spicy rye, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, raisin, prune, tobacco, light smoke/char, and roast/smokey earthiness. Fantastic aromas with incredible complexity and balance of big dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, licorice, dark bread, spicy rye, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, raisin, prune, tobacco, light smoke/char, and roast/smokey earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, licorice, dark bread, spicy rye, toffee, vanilla, bourbon, oak, raisin, prune, tobacco, light smoke/char, and roast/smokey earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of huge dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; with an awesome roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and very full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is fantastic. Alcohol is well hidden with only a small warming present after the finish. Overall this is a world class barrel aged imperial stout. All around fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/roasted malt and bourbon barrel flavors; and quite smooth to sip on for the huge ABV. Very similar to Even More Jesus with some mellower deep roasted character and added rye and barrel complexity. An insanely delicious offering.

Appearance: Pours like motor oil, with a dark tan foamy head, that leaves a few streaks of lacing

Smell: Roasted tones, along with chocolate, Rye, molasses, caramel and oak

Taste: Molasses, caramel and chocolate, up front, with the Rye barrel, oak and vanilla tones developing in the middle; hints of rye spice, coffee and dark fruit build into the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: We are in an area here where Evil Twin really excels; one of the best beers I have from them and that includes the Biscotti series
