Poured from a bottle into a Stone IRS snifter. The pour is viscous, opaque, and as black as night with about a finger of dark brown head that, while thin (despite a rough pour), does have good retention. Really rich nose with lots of charred fruit, bakers chocolate, coffee, burnt cake, and some boozy notes.
Wow! Intense IRS flavors and super creamy feel. Up front are lots of rich malty flavors of toffee, molasses, and fudge. Roastiness comes in with charred notes, dark fruit, and espresso beans and adds complexity. So far, it's a run-of-the-mill top-shelf RIS, but on the back of the palate the creamy feel just goes to a whole other level and you are hit with flavors of milk chocolate and sweet cream. They play off on the roasty notes and soften the flavors and hide the booze in a manner one rarely finds in this style. All of the aforementioned flavors are left dripping from the roof of our mouth on finishing, with a hint of alcohol warmth.
A spectacular beer, especially for fans of Russian Imperial Stouts who sometimes feel like they've tasted 'em all. I have been thoroughly impressed with all of the "Jesus" beers I've had from Evil Twin. Not only is this one no exception, it might be the best of the bunch.

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
