pours like motor oil, you can see bubbles conforming in spires in the bottom of the glass circled round the edges, dark brown foam that audibly sizzles and minds its manners right quick, the foam retreats into the deep dark depth slinking backwards into a miniscule o-ring of shame, she has legs and well you know the ZZ top song so why should I have to type that here? maybe I'm crazy but this just felt heavy pouring it into the glass, a nice dementedly dark den of decadence to be done here.
licorice and prunes, dark cocoa nibs, some smoke, I am oddly enough getting some notes of wood - dank wood, you know sort of musty-ish with the of scent of actual mold, the alcohol peeks through just a hair letting you know this is some party you have paid the cover charge for. nice smelling, strong chocolate (bitter) and some definite molasses going on (I'm not going to pretend that I know what Muscavado sugar is, sure, I could google it - I here that is what the kids are doing today).
I don't remember jesus being this thick... almost chalky cocoa flavor with really heightened bitter notes piercing the back quarters of my mouth, full on ABV kick to the groin but you don't necessarily taste it (yay jesus!), silky smooth in the mouth and it bears weight as well, a really full mouth going on here, like a chocolate bar dipped in molasses, this almost reminds me of some dark rums out of the Caribbean except no alcohol flavor, sure there is big sweetness here but the bitter and chocolate flavors completely balance out this one mother of a beast, this has great bitterness without hops screwing up the chocolate/roast flavors... damn this is tasty.
This is the Black Jesus ! I knew the guy could turn water into wine but damn this is more impressive. This is buddy christ of beers, he instantly cheers you up. This beer is fantastic, a must have, a can not miss, a trade your sister for. this belongs among the great imp stouts I have had... I will clearly be seeking more next time I am up in upstate NY (found this @ oliver's in albany)

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
