Catch up rating from Saturday's RIS bottle share. As it turned to Sunday morning, we all turned to Jesus, even more Jesus. Not much else to add to this one, a top notch RIS, thick, chewy body, tons of chocolate notes, woody roast grains, and a pleasant warmth in the chest. All spells a superlative drink. Cheers!

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

22 oz. bottle:

Pours black with a light brown head that becomes a wisp. No lacing, but has wine-like "legs".

The smell is of rich dark chocolate, slightly burnt brown sugar, toffee, some vinuous notes, espresso beans.

The taste is of chocolate, dark sugar, molasses, toffee, dark fruits and a hint of red wine. Some licorice peeks through as it progresses. Alcohol presence is in a warm, comforting way (no "burn"). Rich and complex. Long, dark malty finish. Sweet, but not sticky.

It has a full, rich (but not too thick) velvety body.

Rich and complex, quite a bit going on, but all comes together wonderfully. Alcohol well-integrated, making it "too" easy to drink. This is an amazing brew. Certainly worth seeking out!

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Poured into a pint glass from a 22oz bottle.

Appearance: Pours jet black with a nice caramel head that stays.

Smell: Beautiful aroma of chocolate and coffee. Very slight alcohol smell as well. Some fruity esters are noticeable

Taste: Chocolate and coffee flavors are well balanced by alcohol sweetness. Some of the caramel is also detectable. Hint of alcohol.

Mouthfeel: Rich malty body that is delightfully creamy. Medium carbonation.

Overall this is one of the best American Imperial Stouts I've had. For such a big beer alcohol-wise, it is remarkably balanced. Very few adjutants seem to be used, sometimes less is more. Brilliant brew, definitely recommend.

A nice stout but I definitely prefer the versions with a few adjuncts. The 12% ABV is pretty well hidden but it still tasted stronger than the 17.2% Bozo we drank next to it. A beer I'd happily drink again but wouldn't seek out.

Beautiful beer, poured from a bomber into a snifter. Jet black, tan foam, really pretty in the glass. I love that this beer is a big biting boozy coffee explosion in the mouth. Sharp at first taste and bitter at the end. Great beer.

Evil Twin big stouts are always outstanding. This one does it with sublime malty sweetness.

It opens black and thick, with a thin fine head and unusual blotchy lace. The aroma is a beautiful sweet malty smell that doesn't stop being charming.

The taste is a sublime mess of malts. They meld together all sweet and barely having any bitter counterpart. The aftertaste has a bit of residual bitters.

This is another truly great stout from a master. Art. It is a sublime pleasure to drink this half growler.

Black, bold body, tan colored foam head, no lacing but lots of tiny carbonation bubbles. Fudge, alcohol, dark fruits, and that classic, distinct, Evil Twin phenolic sugar. Bittersweet chocolate, roast coffee, thick fudge, dark fruits, plus sweet and burnt sugars. Mostly thick, coats the palate well, and has a sticky feel. The 12% is non-existent and masked real well. Overall, just another amazing stout by Evil Twin; though I admit they're not for everyone. Tread lightly and enjoy!

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance - I hate using cliches like used motor oil, but that's what it looks like.

Smell - There is a rich chocolatey nose with some bitterness

Taste - This is like liquid fudge. There are black jelly bean notes and tobacco. The overall profile is slightly bitter. The chocolate grows more bitter at the end. The after is sweet dark chocolate.

Mouthfeel - I was expecting more thickness but this coats the tongue quiet nicely.

Overall - The beer exceeded epectations. This is very good. .

On tap small snifter. Solid imperial stout. Feel is quite thick and heavy. Alcohol very well hidden for 12%. I think a short pour is plenty. Not sure I'd want a full pour. But it is good

Poured bomber into sniffer. Great dark appearance with big head that lasted a long time. Smelled of malt and some alcohol. The taste is crisp, and very good with hints of sweetness. No too alcoholic tasting, and very satisfying. This beer had a great body, and I highly recommend it.

Pours jet black with a thick, tan two inch head which is well retained with excellent lacing. Smell is of dark fruits, roasted malts, coffee, chocolate and toffee. Taste follows the smell. Mouthfeel is viscious and full bodied with moderate carbonation. An excellent stout, I look forward to seeing how well it ages.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours an engine oil black and is capped by a thick beige head; a full curtain of lacing coats the glass

Smell: Roasted and chocolate tones dominant, with hints of dark fruit, walnut and toffee

Taste: Roast, chocolate and dark fruit forward, with black raspberry and plum flavors developing; in the mid-palate, walnut and toffee tones and divergent dimensions with the bittersweet tones of Vietnamese coffee rounding out the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation and some warmth in the gullet

Overall: Big, rich, chocolatey and fruity; very impressive

Pours an opaque dark brown almost black like oil with khaki colored head. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes with cocoa and roast.

2014 vintage
22oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a motor oil thick jet black color with one of the darkest brown heads that I've seen, it pours creamy and velvety and stays for a while before settling into a ring around the glass

S- aroma opens up with lots of dark fruit along with black licorice. Beyond that, notes of mocha nut fudge brownie mixes with candied fig & nutty malts & a hint of caramel

T- taste follows the aroma up front with lots of dried fig & raisin and hints of licorice. The mid-palate brings deep and rich chocolate along notes of toasted walnut, caramel & brownies. The finish brings more dark fruits

M- thick and viscous body with low carbonation leads to a creamy chewy mouthfeel and a velvety smooth finish, just a hint of alcohol linger. This is a perfect mouthfeel when it comes to a high abv stout

O- an outstanding straight up imperial stout that is complimented by a perfect mouthfeel. ET always brews a winner when it comes to stouts

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.75

This beer pours an opaque jet black with a 2 finger chocolate milkshake colored head that sticks around FOREVER. It finally recedes to a quarter inch layer across the top that stays for the duration. There are many webbed sheets of lacing as well. The smell is amazing and decadent. Rich chocolate fudge, coffee, roasted malts and a nice smokiness all blend together to form an amazing aroma. Taste is exactly the same. The sweetness from the chocolate and the smokey flavor intertwine wonderfully and the 12% abv is nonexistent. Feel is thick and viscous. It really coats the whole mouth. Overall this beer is absolutely world class. This is the best non BA stout I've ever had.

Poured into a teku glass.
A: Midnight black with a tight tan ring; no head.

S: Dark chocolate, anise, coffee, leather, dark fruits.

T: So decadent. Like bathing in a chocolate fountain. Rich, thick, roasty, sweet and deadly. Follows nose with a fudge-like texture. This one is a real sipper, to be shared and savored.

M: Medium with creamy/thick carbonation.

O: Glad I finally got to try this heavenly nectar. Take it slow. The 12% will sneak in and baptize you with chocolate love. One of the best Evil Twins I've tried. Very recommended.

Preliminary: Bottle was 6 month-aged.

Smell: Incredible. Fudge, pecan pie, chocolate, marshmallow, toffee, caramel, artificial sweetener, dark coffee and heavy lactose. This already seems like an incredible imperial.

Taste: Without even contesting, this is hands down one of the best imperial stouts around. The flavor consists of heavy cocoa and roast notes that are balanced by an overlay of sweetness that is unforgettable. Fudge, toffee, caramel, marshmallow, dulce de leche, sweet tobacco, mocha, praline, molasses, sweet grains and intense shit all come out. This is a godly flavor profile.

Feel: Syrupy and tangible. This might as well be converted into an ice cream topping at some point. Sincerely recommend to pair this with lighter vanilla and chocolate desserts considering how dense and viscous it is. An incredible mouthfeel.

Overall: Hands-down, the best imperial stout I have had with a barrel touching it. Had to purchase 6 more bottles to cellar. The flavors become more refined and the texture has a denser hold with age. Hold it as long as you can and enjoy with good company. На здоровье.

ve had this before, but this is the first time I pick up a little smoke in the taste. the aroma is like some super rich sick choco bomb dessert. Flavor's like nose plus has just enough bitter and tang to balance the sweet and round the palate. A masterpiece. Slurp.

22 ounce bottle into a snifter.

Pours a very dark brown, opaque, no real head with a slightly oily cling. Smell brings roasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, a little coffee, a little smoke. Taste follows the nose, with more chocolate and no smokiness. Smooth, great body, a real tongue coater.

Not a complex beer, just lots of flavor. Great aroma, too. Very enjoyable. Just another great Imperial Stout from Evil Twin. Well worth a purchase.

Evil Twin Even More Jesus - on tap at Torst in Brooklyn. Review from notes taken at the time. What an amazingly viscous looking stout! The aroma is even more alluring, with what is quite reminiscent of black forest cake. The flavor is has a distinctly fudgy yet unsweetened cocoa taste in the foreground, with black cherries and malty sweetness. Roasty and rough, this brew packs a huge punch that is not at all unpleasant. Thick, velvety, palate coating mouthfeel, too. It was a great way to kick off a night of conversation and bar hopping.

Pours an inky jet black with virtually no head. Nose is roasted malts, dark chocolate and dried fruits. Some burnt notes. Taste is dominated by the chocolate, molasses, and fruits. Finish is a little sweet. Feel is chewy. Alcohol is not noticeable. Overall an excellent imperial stout. Sip slowly.

~2.5 year old bottle

A - Dark black pour with a dark khaki head that pours half a finger high. Low lace and retention.

S - Sweet nose with Belgian candied sugar, brown breads, dark dried fruits, and a touch of gingerbread.

T - Molasses, pumpernickel bread, dark caramel, touch of roast and smoke, soy sauce, a little woody balsamic, and dark brown sugar. Do I detect frankincense and myrrh?

M - Silky smooth, medium-full frame.

O - A solid, roasty and mildly sweet imperial stout.

Jet black with a respectable dark tan froth.

Smell is robust with loads of milk chocolate, coconut and vanilla.

Tastes of milk chocolate, dark fruits, singed pine, vanilla and cotton candy, all of which linger welcome on the palate.

Medium side of heavy but not weighty. Has a pinch of alcohol heat at the finish.

Such a silky smooth feat of human engineering.
