12 bottle poured into Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass.. First Evil Twin brew.

A: Wow.... JET BLACK and thick looking during the pour.... Good finger and a half of dark tan head that settles to a thin layer with massive lacing from start to finish.

S: I'm getting a little chocolate, roasted malts and a hint of bourbon booziness.

T: Little like the smell... Chocolate, roasted malt and then a strong bitterness all smashing in at the top. Bitterness is pretty strong.

M: Full-bodied, it is smooth yet has a little sharpness. Finish is a little boozy from the high ABV.

O: Not a bad Imperial Stout... But the bitterness is a little offsetting for me. Big ABV on this one makes it a one beer night on this one.

This is a slightly strange beer in that it has the nice piney-ness off a hoppy IPA, but it's it stout form. I have in general not liked the stouts that cross over to the IPA-style bitterness. This one does it better than most.

Warmer, you get a smokey hint over the fairly normal smells you would get from a stout. The taste is dark and roasty, but dry and resinous somehow at the same time. Pine notes hit later, but oily coffee notes cut that a bit before taking over and ending the taste. The smokiness from the nose tries to make an appearance at the very end, and I notice some sips more than others. The lingering taste (which is significant today), draws this out slowly. It's too much of the wrong type of bitterness (in my mind) to come close to hitting the top stouts, but I have appreciated it a little more with each taste.

The colour is extremely dark warm21 brown (100 EBC), the liquid is clear. The two finger head is warm brown and compact. Some lacing occurs.

The smell is sweet and very smooth. Some alcohol, roasted nuts and quite a lot of roasted malts. Dried fruits and red apples. A gentle touch of smoke in the background.

The taste is very sweet with growing notes of hot alcohol. Green plants and unripe fruits. Roasted malts; black coffee with sugar and dark chocolate plus a hint of plastic. Medium body. The aftertaste got intensive alcohol flavours, ice cream with dark chocolate and prunes. The finish is milder with cocoa and coffee.

The carbonation is strong, the long-lived bubbles are small and sharp. The liquid is thick and sticky.

Way to evident alcohol in this one. And a tad too sweet.
