4.51/5  rDev +5.1%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

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.

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

22 ounce bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours super dense pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark brown head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, roasted malt, fudge, dark bread, raisin, prune, licorice, tobacco, smoke, light char, and smoke/roasted earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of deep and intense dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, roasted malt, dark bread, raisin, prune, licorice, tobacco, smoke, light char, and smoke/roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, roast, dark bread, raisin, prune, licorice, tobacco, smoke, light char, and roast/smoke earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and intense robustness of dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and extremely full bodied; with a very thick, creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is incredible. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a world class imperial stout. All around insane complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. An absolutely amazing offering.
