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.

A: Black as night with one of the darkest brown heads I've ever seen.
S: Thick layers of chocolate, roast, caramel and dried dark fruits along with a light licorice note. There is also a moderate coffee aroma and malt sweetness. The moderate alcohol sweetness is surprisingly well hidden until it warms up just a touch.
T: Strong chocolate, caramel, dark fruit and roast up front. A medium hops bitterness along with some roast bitterness that are countered by a moderately strong caramel malt sweetness giving a balance that is light tilled towards the bitter. The finish is off-sweet with lingering flavors of dark roasted grains and alcohol.
M: A very warming, full bodied beer with a medium level of carbonation.
O: Chocolate, caramel, dark fruit and roast dominate in almost overwhelming quantitates with the alcohol being clearly noticeable in the flavor and warming mouth feel.

Poured into large snifter; black with a nice dark brown head that fades slowly.
Smells almost savory; espresso and bitter chocolate dominate.
Taste is huge; sweet chocolate balances with savory coffee and dark fruit. Complex and delicious.
Mouthfeel is big but surprisingly clean for such a huge sweet stout.
Overall, I'm not sure I could tell Evil Twin's imperial stouts apart in a blind tasting, but they make a damn good one.

Bottle poured into a goblet
A - Dark, brown with a small mocha colored head composed of small bubbles of carbonation. Looks like it has a thick and oily body which coats the glass when you swirl the beer around
S - Chocolate, vanilla and caramel are intertwined with coffee and a slight oak. This is a strong and complex nose that brings something different with each sniff
T - Vanilla and caramel sweetness initally. As the beer progresses, there is a bitter coffee and dark chocolate that adds another layer of complexity. The finish has a slight booziness and oak that lingers on the tongue. Really like how it runs the gamet of flavors you'd expect in a good stout and blends them together greatly.
MF - Thick and silky smooth with minimal carbonation. There is a slight astringency and coffee bitterness that lingers on the back end.
O - A great stout from Evil Twin. Love how it brings a wide variety of stout flavors together into one beer and how each sip brings a new aspect
