1PT .9oz bottle that says Best Before 2015

A: Mocha one finger head, really dark, almost black, noticeable carbonation

S: Roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, touch of coffee

T: Roasted malts, bitterness, touch of vanilla and chocolate, strong alcohol presence at end

M: Thick and creamy, carbonation is there, a bit boozy for me-feels like it's 18%ABV instead of 10%ABV

O: Good Imperial Stout, but not worth the $15+tax I paid in WI

Or "Soft DK," which I had on tap at Sessions in Greensboro recently. And it kicked my ass in the very best way, so a bottle had to be found, and here it is.

Frickin' gorgeous, with a smooth mocha/tan head, which doesn't last long, but consider the ABV. Liquid is as opaque and ebony as it could be.

Stellar aroma, equal parts gooey chocolate, medium-roast coffee, anise, vanilla, peppermint and alcohol.

Oh yum. Oh hell yeah yum. Tons of flavor here: a distinctive peppermint sort of vibe gives Soft DK an edge over others of its type. And that goes incredibly well with the other main aspect of the taste, the immensely chocolate flavor. There's also a touch of coffee and anise here, while alcohol merely lights a nice little fire under everything to keep it warm. It reminds me of Southern Tier's Choklat infused with mint. I suppose it's the hops and alcohol that combine to give it this minty aspect that I'm noticing. Whatever it is, it's working wonders.

Super-soft texture, which is made of lots of tiny bubbles that caress rather than tickle, and a lighter-than-expected body that is thankfully not at all thin. But you'd expect something thicker.

I see (and smell, taste and feel) nothing to dislike here. This is a fantastic stout, which could have been called Smooth Operator, as classy and silky and seductive as it is. My first meeting with Evil Twin, and most definitely not my last.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

The colour is black, the liquid clear. The low head is warm pale brown.

The smell is dry with notes of coffee, vanilla ice cream and vegetables.

The taste starts with old tired coffee, vanilla and boiled vegetables (cabbage). Burned notes, hints of chocolate cookies. The aftertaste is roasted/burned with more vegetables and some sour artificial vanilla.

The carbonation is medium strong, the bubbles small. The liquid is semi-dry and quite light.

Sour. Dry. Odd notes of vegetables. Not a very good imperial stout.

Poured from a pint bottle into my Deschutes pint glass...

A - Pours pretty much black, with a thin 1/2 finger head that does leave some thick lacing.

S - Smells deliciously chocolatey! That being the foremost aroma, followed by the rich vanilla. Smells like dessert in a glass.

T/M - Not as rich as the smell leads to, but still pretty tasty. The taste is more raosty than rich. More bittersweet chocolate than milk chocolate. The mouthfeel is a little thinner than I would prefer my imp stouts to be.

O - A pretty descent stout overall. I was kinda hoping for a more thick/creamy mouthfeel, but it came up a little thin for me.

I recieved this in Secret Santa '11, jet black pour with very little carbonation, very littel head. The aroma is lots of coffee and vanilla. I thought there was alot of coffee in this one, along with some vanill and fruit notes. The body is full, very light carbonation, alcohol not easily noted. I liked it, easy drinking for a big beer.

Got this at Brew Dog Camden a little while ago. Poured a deep black with a small head that remained there and left a decent bit of lacing. Aromas of chocolate molasses and LOT'S of Vanilla. Falvours are quite similar with again tons of vanilla, caramel, molasses, and some bitter cocoa in the finish. Full bodied and very soft cabonation made this a really nice sipper. Overall a very nice sweet stout as long as you like vanilla. . .Which I do.

On draft at The Railroad...
Appears a pitch black opaque with a small tan head that slowly fades into a gentle cap and collar. Lots of scattered lacing is left around the glass.
Smell is of a TON of vanilla, cocoa, caramel, and brown sugar.
Taste is of a flavorful punch of cocoa and vanilla with a hint of maple syrup, espresso, and molasses.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, sweet up front with a bitter and spicy finish. A tad abv is noticed.

Draft at The Farmers' Cabinet in Philadelphia.

Pours pitch black with a one finger mocha head that quickly settles into a lasting ring.  Sporadic spots of lace left behind.

Silky sweet choclate malt aroma with hints of vanilla bean, coffee bean, toffee and caramel.  Nice and roasted but not burnt or acrid smelling.  Like chocolate covered vanilla bean coffee.  Pretty outrageous.

On the fuller end of medium bodied with a nice balance of roasted dark malt, silky choclate and boozy sweetness.  Nice roasted coffee bean bitterness up front countered by the silky sweet chocolate and vanilla bean smoothing things out.  Again, it's roasted but not acrid.  Gourmet coffee beans, chocolate, toffee, caramel, oatmel and vanilla.  Vanilla beans usually aren't very prominet but they really stand out in this beer.  Some booozy heat/sweetness in the finish but overall the abv is nicely masked making it easy to drink.   Really good.
