look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

11.2 oz bottle was poured into a tulip glass.

Appearance: The beer poured a one finger mocha head that has reduced to a thin layer. It is pitch black with no clrity and some signs of bubbles at the upper rim of the glass. Looks delicious.

Smell: roasted and bready malts, mocha, and somce smokiness too.

Taste: roasted coffee, bittersweet choocolate, bready and sweet malts, alcohol, and quite a tasty treat.

Mouthfeel: very smooth, a bit dry, full bodied, medium to high carbonation, and very easy to drink given the high ABV.

Overall: This is a pretty solid DIS that could of sat for 3 more years. I have completed the Evil Twin black and tan beers and next time I will venture into the expensive mix now that I have had both compnents separately.

4.01/5  rDev +1.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: utterly black with a finger of creamy dark-tan foam atop. Not much more you can ask of a beer.

Smell: rich and roasty, but not acrid, with a good sweetness underneath. Coffee and chocolate come through, along with a nice dark-fruitiness. I'm a fan.

Taste: much like the aroma, in that it is super roasty without being astringent or acrid. Specific coffee and chocolate notes are a little toned down from the aroma, but there's still that subtle element of dark fruit complexity that I like. Quite good.

Mouthfeel: big body with a decent carbonation and a good creaminess. Appropriate for a stout of this nature; I quite like it.

Overall: this is a pretty satisfying Imperial stout. I could see myself drinking more of this.
