12 ounce bottle into snifter, bottled on 10/23/2013. Pours pitch black color with a 1 finger dense dark tan head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, raisin, plum, toast, dark bread, light char/smoke, herbal, light pine, and roasted earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and light-moderate earthy/piney hop notes; with good strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, toast, dark bread, raisin, plum, light char/smoke, pine, herbal, and roasted earthiness. Good amount of pine/roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, toast, dark bread, molasses, raisin, plum, light char, herbal, pine, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and moderate earthy/piney hop flavors; with a great roasted malt/hop bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and fairly full bodied; with a very smooth, creamy, and lightly slick/chalky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent imperial stout. All around great complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and moderate earthy/piney hop flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

Poured a black body with minimal head and lace and has an aroma that is mostly roasted malts and hints of sweet malts like chocolate and bread as well.
The beer is heavy bodied, not the smoothest but not rough, a real roasted/toasted malt presence but not overbearing as there is a little bit of sweetness as well.
A rather simplistic hearty stout but well done and I could drink one of these all the time.

Pours a very appealing black with an inch head.Smell possibly figs,a hint of coffee and malt.Taste is a bit bitter at first but gives way to a bit of a boozy mouthfeel.not a bad stout but nothing to make me choose this over my go to stouts again.Evil Twin makes great beer but this one fell just a bit short of my expectations.alas you may love it.Give it a shot!
