22 oz. bottle served in a . Thanks to bentenison for the brew.
A: Pours a dark black color with a dark tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin film with a slightly thicker collar. Sheets of lace.
S: There's a whole ton going on. Espresso sweetness, almost like a warm chocolate milk. Heavy doughy cookie, roasted malts and big baker's chocolate. Very faint green paper as it warms, but overall it doesn't detract too much from the smell. Very nice.
T: Warming alcohol on the backend, but it's not over or noticeable which is nice. Chocolate covered espresso beans with a roasted malt and soft cookie sweetness. The finish has some bitter roast and some
M: Silky and oily. Medium to heavy bodied with a medium low carbonation. Really nice.
O: Great mouthfeel with a wonderful blend of flavors. Very nice overall and would definitely have again.

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...
