Cocoa powder, dark bitter chocolate, dark fruits and roasted malts. Medium mouthfeel with a big bitter punch. Classic Evil twin stout.

Black pour with a small mocha head, quickly reduced to a thin string.
Dark fruit on the nose, with nice fig and plum, some dark cherry, brandy notes, licorice, molasses, faint maple syrup, a touch of roasted malt and chocolate. A nice different than usual smell, actually.
Wow, rich dark fruit in the taste, plum jam, ripe figs, juicy dark cherries, fortified with some liqueur. Awesome dark chocolate with lots of spices stuck in there, nice dark licorice, bit of black pepper, anise, faint clove even. Nice caramel sweetness just before the big roasted malts, a bit dark bready, but with nice black coffee in the end.
Aftertaste is pretty bland, with mostly the roasted malts lingering, but each new sip brings all those nice flavors back. Medium body, low carbonation, really oily and smooth. Alcohol warms up as the beer does too, but not too boozy.
A huge, creamy, really complex imperial stout, packed with awesome flavors. Awesome stuff!

BOD 231/14. Pours dark as NYC during a black out. Excellent head volume, lacing and retention.

Nice nose of dark fruit (plums, dates) over a deep dark chocolate and molasses sweetness coupled with notes of roast and caramel. As it warms, anise becomes noticeable.

Light full body with an excellent creamy texture. Normal carbonation with just a bit of effervescence in the finish.

The flavor profile is intense, quite complex but lacks a bit in balance due to the strong alcohol background that tends to override what would otherwise be an outstanding stout. It begins with an oily sweetness over an anise background. As the anise fades, the rich malt flavors separate into chocolate, molasses and caramel. The middle is a significant rush of bitterness from alcohol, roast and hops. As the bitterness subsides, coffee and burned malt notes come to the forefront over a distinct alcohol background. The finish begins with a fading of molasses sweetness into the alcohol and the associated alcohol bite and burn at the back of the throat. it closes with a bit of dryness from the alcohol.
