A: Wow, one of the thickest pours ever. It reminds me of 30,000 mile motor oil. 50W. In subzero temperatures. It doesn't even splash as I pour it, it's just a black hole of beer, absorbing the droplets that would have spattered. Jet black pour with the darkest head on a beer I've ever seen. Huge, thick head to boot. The head is so dark that it's indistinguishable from the liquid for a little bit. Even after the head has sat for a while it's still darker than 95% of other stouts. Head fades super slowly with great retention. Body is so dark it looks like it's staining the glass when you swirl it. Spotty little bits of lacing is the only reason this doesn't get a 5. Only beer that has a better appearance that I can recall, is CBS.
S: Heavy, heavy black patent malt. Dark fruits, anise, char, chocolate and coffee. All of it. Quite a bit smoke with some umami too. It's comically thick, swirling it for aroma looks like you're trying to swirl a glass of brownie batter. Surprisingly mellow aroma overall for a 12% IS.
T: Again with the heavy roasted malt character. Tastes a lot like it looks - brownie batter. Heavy dark chocolate with a little coffee initially. Fades into some anise and a little char. No real discernible dark fruits as in the aroma, maybe a flash of raisin and cherry here and there. Might be in my mind. Smokiness and umami are still there but very light, thankfully. Lots of dark chocolate in the finish. Sweet all the way through but not cloying somehow. A bit of stinging alcohol throughout and it warms the belly immediately. This is a big one. Lingering dark chocolate brownies in the aftertaste.
M: Ultra heavy body, perhaps one of the thickest beers I've ever tasted (and I've reviewed over 1000). I'm not being cute when I say it's like used motor oil or brownie batter - it literally is. Coats the mouth for a long time between sips. Smooth and creamy at the same time.
O: Very interesting. A seriously heavy beer. I've had much higher ABV stouts (WWS, chocolate rain, etc) but somehow this one feels like a ton of bricks. Gotta be the thickest beer I've seen, ten fidy has nothing on this. Great testament to roasted malt flavors, they're all here. It's complex in its simplicity. Having said that, I imagine a barrel treatment to cut this one a bit might put this one off the scale. Here's to hoping they do someday! Great dessert beer and Evil Twin's best beer by far. Just awesome.

Heard a lot of good things about this beer, so as soon as I saw it I just had to buy one.
Looks great with a thick, dark head that looks like chocolate mousse.
Aroma is awesome with fudgy brownies, a little marshmallow, chocolate, coffee and dark fruit such as cherries and raspberries.
Flavor is the same as aroma. Alcohol is nowhere to be found, making the drinkability quite high. A little sweeter than I usually like, but now I am nit-picking.
Overall I really liked this beer. Once I had tried enough to make a review, I took about 1/2 oz of Eagle Rare bourbon and added it to the beer. Wow, talk about making your very own bourbon stout without shelling out the money for one. Try it, guys and girls. You won't be disappointed.

4.16/5 rDev -2.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
A - Black, dark brown head has good retention and some lacing.
S/T - Roasted coffee/malts roll into bitter dark chocolate mid palate, finishing with a chocolate syrup sweetness that has minimal bitterness. Booze heat kicks in the finish, maybe a little too much for my taste.
M - Huge body, lower carb level, Leaves the mouth coated, but the booze dries it up a touch.
O - Pretty good stuff here. The booze presence is bit much for my preference, but this is kind of expected with the abv.
Serving type: on-tap
