Black as midnight pour, thick tan head, nose and flavor of bitter chocolate, coffee, smoked meat, cedar shavings, roast, graham cracker, clove, nutmeg, sandalwood, mandarin orange, tangerine, strawberry, raspberry, apricot, plum, tobacco, leather, raisin, fig, date, and prune. Insanely complex with an absolute motor oil consistency. Even bigger than Dark Lord, and far more balanced and delicious with an eternal syrupy, bittersweet finish. OMG! My new favorite RIS, hands down.

Wow....Out of the bottle at one of Americas Great pubs the Avenue Pub In NOLA

Upon drinking this I believed I had reached Nirvania....went to the top of my personal list

But I must confess I love big over the top stouts.

You can smell the chocolate, molasses and coffee and then you can taste them...

The beer is smooth and mouthful...and if I could I would start every day with it instead of coffee
I knew nothing about it until I tasted two weeks ago.

Had this last night with Jeppe at the Max's Baltimore Beer Week event.

In comparison to the Even More Jesus I would say this has a tiny bit more smoke flavor while the Even is a little bit smoother and slightly more vinous.

Definitely worth seeking out.

4.79/5  rDev +12.4%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Appearance – Pitch black with a dark chocolaty foamy head. The head dissipates quickly to a thin layer that leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

Smell – I could smell this from a distance. Coffee, chocolate, molasses, brownie, a hint of cherry, and a booze I can’t quite place – perhaps a sweet anise liqueur. Really nice!

Taste – Chocolate, coffee molasses and the sweet liqueur I noticed in the smell.

Mouthfeel – Creamy, somewhat syrupy, lightly carbonated, and smooth. A mild alcohol bite from the 12%abv that compliments the taste.

Drinkability – A very intense stout. Similar to the Aún Más A Jesús, but with an extra sweet liquor flavor (anise?). One of my all time favorites!

The beer comes in a dark black color with tons of beautiful lacing. Very thick. A big brown head.

The aroma has this huge fruit aroma. Almost of musty and fermented grapes or berries, raisins. Dried pomegranate. A roasty malt.

The flavor follows with chocolate, roasted malt, molasses, brownies. There are tons of fruit esters that follow. Dark plums, raisins. The alcohol is well hidden. The finish is very clean with lots of chocolate.

The mouthfeel is huge and luscious. Absolutely huge mouthfeel.

Evil Twin never ceases to amaze with their incredible stouts/porters.

Bottle for the American market, bought from the De Molen webshop.
Poured with all the yeast.

Pours a very very dark brown, viscous.

Look pitch black in the glass with a dark mocca head that fades quickly.
Some carbonation visible as the foam is gone.

Smells very rich and complex.
Big roasted malts (British in a way), dark fruits (plums, dates, figs, raisins you name it) and coffee. A pretty big overall caramel/toffee sweetness. Vanilla. Burnt notes.

Tastes very good. Very sweet, Chocolate but also dark fruitiness. Yeah, delicious chocolate coated dark fruits (raising for example). Some burnt woodiness in there too. Pretty dry because of that. Coffee too, and dark (rye) bread. Good bitterness to balance the sweetness.
Very complex. The alcohol is noticable but it is pretty well hidden and adds to the beer.

Great mouthfeel on this one, more like creamy chocolate milk than beer. Rich and creamy.

Overall a really nice, very big imperial stout. Recommended.

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

Drank on-tap at Tørst, Brooklyn, NY
Served in a wine glass

Dark, shimmery, oily, brown/black appearance. The liquid was topped by a creamy, one-finger crown of mocha colored froth. Streaks of drippy lacing coated the glass.

The nose was rich and robust. Strong roasted and chocolate malt notes. Dark fruits. Good dose of espresso. Some brown sugar sweetness.

The taste was similar to the aroma but more complex and intense. Loads of roasted and caramel malts appeared on the front end. Tons of dark chocolate. Intense dark fruit notes. Raisins and plums came through strongest. Hint of vanilla. Touch of roasty bitterness on the finish. At 12% ABV, the alcohol presence was remarkably well hidden.

While the flavor profile was excellent, the mouthfeel was simply the highlight of this beer. It was thick, rich and oily with a super frothy and smooth cabonation. Plush and pillowy soft.

Take an amazing beer and served it at a beer bar that has the most advanced draft system in the country, and you wind up with pure magic in a glass. What a truly memorable experience.

a very thick black pour with 2 fingers of dark brown head which seemed to not dissipate at all.. this is simply fantastic looking. dark roasted coffee, cigarette ashes, dark chocolate, licorice.. this beer just smells dark and delicious.. hardly a hint of alcohol on the nose. a ton of sweet malty notes try their hardest to mask a 12% dark as night profile! lots of black licorice flavor, dark roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate, molasses.. this is a delight to drink.. had this on tap at torst, and that pouring system they have over there made this the perfect stout. a full body motor oil thickness, creamy mouthfeel with a modest amount of carbonation for the style.. the carbonated end makes this somewhat easy to drink, which along with the very well masked abv can be a very dangerous thing!

truly a fantastic stout - for any fans of in your face (heavy) beers.

Got this one at the De Molen beer shop. Cheers PP!

From a bomber into a snifter
Brewed at Westbrook

APPEARANCE: A thick, sludgy black pour yields a 1+ finger, medium looking, foamy, crackly, mocha colored head with good retention. Pitch black body with a piss ton of carbonation. Head slowly fades to a thick, dense cap but continues to snap and crackle. Swirly wisp and ring remain leaving dots of lacing down the glass. Really thick and black, but too carbonated and the head is a little obnoxious.

SMELL: Smells like a gem. Roasted grains, molasses, roasted espresso beans and dark baker's chocolate. Toffee notes as well. Lots of roast, chocolate and molasses. Big nose and just my style.

TASTE: Roasted flavors and sweet molasses initially, lots of it, with some alcohol and sweet toffee up front. Very roasted. Huge flavors on the swallow with more roasted grain, burnt espresso beans, dark, bitter chocolate, with sweet molasses, toffee, and a burst of booze at the finish. Bitter-sweet finish lingers and lingers, with lots of roasted flavors to boot. A touch boozier than hoped perhaps, but this is extremely flavorful with all the ingredients I love in an imperial stout. Fantastic.

PALATE: Medium-full body with medium levels of carbonation. Enough weight on the palate, very creamy and oily, slick and silky, goes down smooth and silky with a slight burn at the swallow and finishes very sticky. A touch cloying perhaps, but not at all off-putting. Fits the flavor profile well. Some heat lingers. Great.

OVERALL: Credit it due where credit it due. Whether Jeppe was alone on this one, this brew is absolutely wonderful. Really big, roasted and sweet, much reminding me of CCB's Zhukov, with a good deal of bitter flavors to balance it out perfectly. Solid, full, creamy feel too, which supports the whole show. Perhaps a touch too boozy, but this is a minor complaint. An imperial stout that ticks almost all the major aspects for me flavor-wise, and comes dam close in all the other categories as well. Well worth checking out if you get the chance, and I wish I could buy more of this stuff. Highly, highly recommended.

4.6/5  rDev +8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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.

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

A- Pours black with a one finger dark brown head. Alcohol legs and great lacing remain on the sides of glass. Beautiful imperial stout.

S- Licorice, chocolate syrup, roast, fruity esters. sugar.

T- Licorice, chocolate syrup, brownies, burnt charred flavor, cherry, coffee, and alcohol. The only thing to improve is the burnt, charred character and the slight heat. A balance between sweet and intensely roasted.

M- Massive mouthfeel. Heavy full body that feels like liquid chocolate. Very smooth.

O- What a complex, beast of a beer. This could even sit in the cellar to take the slight edge off the heat and roast. Impressive stuff.

Edit: After aging this beer for 4 months, I had another bottle. It did not age well in those 4 months. I think this beer was best fresh. I did not end up finishing the beer. I've never seen a beer make such a change in such a short amount of time.

11.2oz bottle.

Pours pitch black with a small but thick mocha head that sticks to the sides of the glass on the way down.

Aroma is big on bakers chocolate, coffee and caramelized sugar. There is also a bit of dark fruit but the heavy roastiness of the black malts stand out above the sweetness.

Taste is like a big thick coffee, chocolate milkshake. Some sweetness, lots of roast, hints of espresso beans. Bitterness from the roast and semi-sweet chocolate linger in the finish.

Mouthfeel is absolutely decadent, like a milkshake. Thick, smooth with decent carbonation and heavily roasted.

This is an excellent imperial stout, one of the best I've have in a long time. There is a great balance of roast with chocolate and a seriously thick feel. Works on almost every level.

Draft at Tørst in Brooklyn, NY.

Pitch black and opaque with a two finger, frothy mocha colored head.  Really dark head head on this beer which itself is darker than some stouts.  Almost as dark as the head on Dark Lord.  Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap/collar.  Glass is left coated with sludgy legs and soapy lacing.  Perfection.

Slightly smokey, roasted malt aroma with silky chocolate malt and fudge-y cake like sweetness underneath.  Slightly boozy with hints of smoke, ash, burnt sugar, toast, oatmeal and espresso bean.  

Luscious, viscous mouthfeel that makes it taste/feel like a boozy, roasted chocolate beer milkshake.  Slightly hop forward with resinous pine needle flavor but the malts are the star with a nice balance of dry roast and silky sweetness.  Dry burnt sugars, toast, smoked malt, oatmeal and coffee followed by fudge, silky chocolate, caramel and hazelnut.  The high ABV is very well masked making this beer somewhat dangerous.  Perfectly balanced with piney hops and boozy sweetness countering the complex malt bill. A truly impressive take on the style.

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.

11.2 ounce bottle. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch brown frothy head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. Aroma is nice, it smells like chocolate, roasted malt, dark fruit (cherries, raisins), coffee, dark bread, and some molasses. The brew tastes like milk and bittersweet chocolate, dark fruit, brown sugar, molasses, roasted malt, and coffee. This is a very sweet tasting brew! It's certainly one of the sweeter imperial stouts I've had recently. Mouthfeel/body is full, it's creamy and slick with moderate carbonation. I liked this brew a lot, it's another one that I would definitely buy if I see it again. $9.99 a bottle.

Heard a lot of good things about this beer, so as soon as I saw it I just had to buy one.

Looks great with a thick, dark head that looks like chocolate mousse.

Aroma is awesome with fudgy brownies, a little marshmallow, chocolate, coffee and dark fruit such as cherries and raspberries.

Flavor is the same as aroma. Alcohol is nowhere to be found, making the drinkability quite high. A little sweeter than I usually like, but now I am nit-picking.

Overall I really liked this beer. Once I had tried enough to make a review, I took about 1/2 oz of Eagle Rare bourbon and added it to the beer. Wow, talk about making your very own bourbon stout without shelling out the money for one. Try it, guys and girls. You won't be disappointed.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a jet black color and a thick, impenetrable consistency. There was a massive, tan-colored, long-lasting head. Excellent lacing. Basically, this is how a stout should look.

M: A good amount of carbonation with a slick finish. Full-bodied.

O: This is an incredibly well made, drinkable beer. Not a session beer for sure, but a fantastic piece of brewing.

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

A: First stout I've drank with a chocolaty head; 1-finger. Even after froth settles, it remains a brown shade. Beer itself is very dark; black.

S: Heavy on the mocha with a hint of licorice and maple syrup. Some citrus tingles the noes

T: Like eating a dark chocolate bar; sweet but not overpowering. Hint of coffee, but more chocolate. Licorice and citrus as an aftertaste.

M: Thick, creamy, and malty. Bitter hops come later but doesn't last.

O: I want more. This stout tickles my senses. It's quite strong too, but misleading because there's not much alcohol taste. *thumbs up* a very nice beer. Cheers!

A: Poured from the bomber into a Piraat tulip/stemmed-snifter-type glass. Body appears black and thick on the pour. A 1.5-finger tight-bubbled brown head settles on top and recedes to leave behind some legs of lace.

S: First impression is of rum-soaked dark fruits. As it warms I get dried fruits and chocolate.

T: Big chocolatey malt with molasses, dark chocolate and fudge brownies. Some roasted barley malt, which at times crosses over into burnt coffee beans or even charcoal. Fruitiness makes me think of chocolate-covered black cherries. Finishes with modest bitterness which, along with the drying alcohol, creates a nice counterbalance to the sweetness of the malt. Warmth felt in the belly after a few sips, which is no surprise given the 12% ABV.

M: Silky smooth; quite nice in the feel. Not sure I've ever had such a heavy-bodied RIS/Double-Imperial Stout feel so light on the palate. Definitely a heavyweight, but it drinks much lighter.

O: Very good.

A - Pitch black with a small to medium sized, tight, smooth, frothy, dark cafe colored head. Nice retention leaving a nice ring of lace.

S - Bold flavors with bittersweet chocolate being the strongest. A bit of milk chocolate and cream accompany that. Touches of mocha and sweet brown sugar.

T - Like the nose, it is bold and flavorful. Lots of bittersweet and milk chocolate. Some fudge and mocha coffee. A bit of dark roasted coffee. Touches of dark fruit and a whisper of anise.

M - Full body with low to moderate carbonation. Thick, creamy, and chewy. Coats the mouth beautifully.

D - Wonderful sipping beer. Bold and flavorful with a beautiful body that stands up to the flavors. The glass emptied faster than I expected from sipping it. Alcohol is non-existent.

Notes: Another great stout from Evil Twin. Bold and flavorful. Loads of chocolate along with ome other nice flavors. The body is gorgeous on this and leads to it being a wonderful sipper.

Poured into a Maudite snifter. Pours pitch black. Thin film of brown foam dissipating to a ring around the glass. Rich aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, booze. Flavor is intense toasted malt, chocolate, dried dark fruit, coffee and a hint of smoke. Finishes with burnt coffee and chocolate. Rich and delicious. Heavy bodied with excellet creaminess. This is an excellent imperial stout. Glad I got the opportunity to try it.
