4.44/5 rDev +3.5%
look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5
A: 22oz bottle casually poured into a stone RIS snifter, produceing about an inch of foam that very slowly recedes. Swirling the glass shows slick alcohol leaving only traces of the mocha like foam.
S: Damn. Really impressive. To be honest I had no intention of reviewing this beer, but once I smelled it, I figured I'd give it a quick review. Toasty graham cracker abounds (my favorite!), backed up by some bitter chocolates, maybe a little dark fruit, some molasses, and a nice touch of smokiness that I've noticed in jeppe's stouts consistently.
T: Toasty marshmallows, a ton of rich chocolate, and more dark raisin notes. Even though this is not as syrupy as a ba double stout, in conjunction with the mouthfeel, the taste takes me to the idea of a fudge or brownie preparation, not just a one dimensional "ok this reminds me of chocolate."
M: Another "wow" for this category. Whipped cream or fluffy marshmallows, just really really creamy, it's not lactic, but has a milky character that's pleasant. Once it's down, there's competing bitter chocolate notes, and just a touch of pleasant alcohol.
O:As with every evil twin stout I've tried, the only thing holding me back from stocking up on a case is the price tag. Definitely worth trying at least once. I can't really think of a non BA'd imp stout that i liked as much as this, but I thought this is in the same league as (and similar to) ba boris.
Very good beer, I'd love to find a BA variant.

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.
