Cellar temp bottle poured into a goblet
This pours a murky dark brown, looks like motor oil with a thick creamy tan head.
The aroma is a pungent bittersweet chocolate. There's also a boozy aroma; slightly Irish-creamy and nutty. The sweetness is very robust.
The taste is a malty vanilla bomb. The pallette is otherwise stained with a sweet cocoa note after a nice sweet, tart and syrupy draw. This is a dessert beer without a doubt.
Mouthfeel at room temperature is exceptionally smooth. I typically like imperial stouts a bit chilly, but this one goes down easy warm.
Overall, this is a good beer and could go down easy as a breakfast beer or for a late night sweet tooth. I was not familiar with this beer prior to trying it, but am glad I got to taste it. If EvilTwin has other beers of this caliber, if be eager to try them.

4.6/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
650ml bottle bought online from CraftBeerCo.. My 1000th beer review so i thought it better be something special
Poured pitch black with no hint of colour even when held up to the light. Burnt brown head poured fairly thick with very small bubbles and a meringue like topping... a good one finger of foam remained throughout.. some thick lacing lines...
Aroma - Lots of roasted sweet chocolate malts backed with caramel and strong coffee, toasted nuts - hazlenuts mainly, quite earthy, some faint citrus notes, light liquorice, lots of brown sugar, honey notes, some light smokiness...
Taste - Tons of dark and milk chocolate up front followed by strong black coffee notes, roasted malts, cocoa powder, vanilla, some light smoke just coming through, dark fruits (raisins and currents), fudge, nut brittle, treacle / molasses, alcohol is not noticeable..
Feel - Smooth and velvety with just a little sharpness underneath... full bodied... pretty drinkable for an 11% brew although becomes quite sweet towards the end...
Overall - A superb example of an imperial stout from Evil Twin although a 650ml bottle would be way too much as the sweetness becomes a little much (i shared this one with my wife) ... definitely recommended though...
