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.

Preliminary: Bottle was 6 month-aged.

Smell: Incredible. Fudge, pecan pie, chocolate, marshmallow, toffee, caramel, artificial sweetener, dark coffee and heavy lactose. This already seems like an incredible imperial.

Taste: Without even contesting, this is hands down one of the best imperial stouts around. The flavor consists of heavy cocoa and roast notes that are balanced by an overlay of sweetness that is unforgettable. Fudge, toffee, caramel, marshmallow, dulce de leche, sweet tobacco, mocha, praline, molasses, sweet grains and intense shit all come out. This is a godly flavor profile.

Feel: Syrupy and tangible. This might as well be converted into an ice cream topping at some point. Sincerely recommend to pair this with lighter vanilla and chocolate desserts considering how dense and viscous it is. An incredible mouthfeel.

Overall: Hands-down, the best imperial stout I have had with a barrel touching it. Had to purchase 6 more bottles to cellar. The flavors become more refined and the texture has a denser hold with age. Hold it as long as you can and enjoy with good company. На здоровье.

An amazing decadent and rich stout. The kind where when you drink it with other serious beer fans, you look at each other with that "wtf did I just sip?! Look. Simple as that.

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.

Great beer. Strong but disguised well. Chocolate, coffee, raspberry notes. Very unique beer. Pours dark. Light head. Drinkable. Great aftertaste. Might just get a second. Hard not to try something different. Thanks Torst.

Black, bold body, tan colored foam head, no lacing but lots of tiny carbonation bubbles. Fudge, alcohol, dark fruits, and that classic, distinct, Evil Twin phenolic sugar. Bittersweet chocolate, roast coffee, thick fudge, dark fruits, plus sweet and burnt sugars. Mostly thick, coats the palate well, and has a sticky feel. The 12% is non-existent and masked real well. Overall, just another amazing stout by Evil Twin; though I admit they're not for everyone. Tread lightly and enjoy!

4.88/5  rDev +14.3%
look: 5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

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!

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.

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

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. Caramel sweetness, milk chocolate.

The flavor follows with sweetness up front of candied sugar, brown sugar, caramel. Then onto roasty malt, bitter chocolate, brownies. There are tons of fruit esters that follow. Dark plums, raisins.. The finish is very clean with lots of chocolate and some coffee bitterness.

The mouthfeel is huge and luscious.

One of the best imperial stouts on the market.

An imperial stout at $14.99 and 12% ABV. Poured into a chalice.

The pour and the aroma made me salivate! OMG – Great! Well balanced across the roasted malt, ABV and the bitterness/sweetness. Almost like a chocolate milkshake albeit made with no milk and no chocolate and its beer. Hides its ABV well. A beer that changes substantially as it warms. 4.75

A – Pours a black with a reddish brown one-finger head. Slightly viscous. Great lacing. 5

S – Roasty, coffee, dark chocolate, slight sweetness, a bit of alcohol as the beer warms. 4.75

T – Roasted malt, malted chocolate, minor bitterness balanced with some sweetness, very minor notes of dark fruit and whiskey. 4.75

MF – Smooth, creamy (not velvety), medium-heavy, with a slightly dry finish, a bit of a bit in the finish as well. 5.0

16 oz. can Batch #003

Pours opaque pitch black with a dense creamy brown foam head. Smells like smoky dark roasted malts, some cola-like spice, dark chocolate, charred coffee, vanilla, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, dark fruits, mild booze, with earthy grass and pine. Tastes like luscious creamy dark chocolate, smoky dark roast coffee, charred toasty malts, dark fruits, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, dark toffee, with mild pine and earthy grass. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and viscous with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really rich, creamy and luscious, super tasty imperial stout.

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

This beer pours an opaque jet black with a 2 finger chocolate milkshake colored head that sticks around FOREVER. It finally recedes to a quarter inch layer across the top that stays for the duration. There are many webbed sheets of lacing as well. The smell is amazing and decadent. Rich chocolate fudge, coffee, roasted malts and a nice smokiness all blend together to form an amazing aroma. Taste is exactly the same. The sweetness from the chocolate and the smokey flavor intertwine wonderfully and the 12% abv is nonexistent. Feel is thick and viscous. It really coats the whole mouth. Overall this beer is absolutely world class. This is the best non BA stout I've ever had.

A: Pours brilliant pitch black producing an extraordinarily creamy 2” dark tan foam collar that grips the side of the glass, has some legs.
S: Chocolate, espresso, grain, dark sugars.
T: Dark chocolate, malty sweetness, dark caramel long bitter chocolate aftertastes.
F: very chewy, very fine soft carbonation, some graininess, warming
O: A well composed imperial stout that hits all the right buttons.

A roasty aroma pours out of this beer the instant it's open. A big beer that somehow even at 12% pours like engine oil and drinks smooth. Some Evil Twin beers are hype, this one is not.

Had at a tap take over on cask and draft. Cask smells more smokey and a little like bacon. Draft Is an incredible beer. Smells of the candy sugar Smoke and and wine flavor That I can't figure out. One of the best beers I tasted in a long time.

I was surprised I had not reviewed this yet as I've enjoyed several bottles.
A - Pours black with a small tan head.
S - The aroma is molasses and coffee.
T - The flavor is sweeter than most Imperial Stouts. More molasses than anything else. Not bitter at all.
M - Perfect mouth feel for an Imperial Stout. Thick and sticky. Like motor oil. Carbonation is low.
O - This is an outstanding Imperial Stout and I will buy more soon.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.75

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.

2013 vintage 22 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a gorgeous, pitch black color with a quarter of a finger of dark caramel-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and formed wispy clouds that gathered in the center of the top of the beer.

Aroma: Roasted malt and tons of dark chocolate. Notes of vanilla, caramel, burnt sugar, cherries, brownies, floral hops.

Taste: Amazing! Malty up front, quickly followed by tons of chocolate, vanilla and caramel. I also get slight notes of coffee, and oak. Finally, there is no hops bitterness to speak of, which I overall prefer. Delicious!

Mouthfeel: Chewy and smoooooooth! Virtually no carbonation. With an ABV of 12%, there is a definite strong presence of alcohol on the palate. A very pleasant alcohol warmth.

Overall: Damn, this is an awesome beer! Tasty as hell, and very comforting (as far as a beer can be comforting). Probably a bit too much on the sweet side for those who mind that, but I don’t so I love it! I’m definitely getting several bottles of this again!

Simply terrific beer here. the only thing as good / comparable from evil twin is the imperial biscotti break, and I am equally inclined to give the title to even more jesus depending on what situation you catch me in...

some of their other stouts and porters like yin, love you with my stout, soft dk, lil' b, ashtray heart, nyc hotel room etc. don't touch the quality of this one or imp biscotti break. even more jesus is downright world-class solid beer up there with ANY of the greats in the category, and in fact right now (while drinking an even more jesus) I am going to give the edge to even more jesus over imp biscotti break! haha

This is one of those rare beers that is perfect form. The appearance is pitch black with a frothy milk chocolate colored head. The beer's taste and smell are quintessential dark chocolate bitterness. The mouthfeel is perfectly creamy and full until the finish, which rolls off with a very appealing astringency and ashiness. There's also a nice lightly sweetened oily espresso quality to the beer which is delightful. The aftertaste makes the beer a great slow sipper. Very good showing. Evil twin never ceases to satisfy. Could they be the masters of imperial stouts? Who the hell knows. Definitely try.

Look - Absolutely pitch black in the glass.
Smell - Chocolate, coffee, molasses, toffee
Taste - Follows the nose. Chocolate, coffee, sweet molasses/toffee/caramel, roasted malts
Feel - Creamy, sticky, mouth coating, this is 12%?!?! Really?!?! Couldn't tell....

Overall - This beer absolutely blew me away! Wonderful flavor, wonderful mouthfeel and it came in a can!!! Perfect!

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.

This beer pours classic motor oil black with very little head. The aroma is complex to say the least. The laundry list I pick up include dark chocolate, soy sauce, sprouts, molasses, whiskey, cinnamon, raisins, coffee, tobacco, and I don't even know what else. The flavor carries dark chocolate first, followed by molasses, a slight vegetal and soy sauce taste, and a rather boozy finish. This beer has so much going on. A beautiful slow sipper.

Shared this bottle with ole Hank on cold ass December afternoon in Northern Oklahoma. I let this sit in the cellar for several months so it would be nice and ready for Winter.

Pours that lusty overused motor oil black with a single finger of dark chestnut foam. Lacing was scant for such a big stout. Love the aromas - dark chocolate, burnt toasted marshmellow, vanilla bean, sweetened coffee, and booze. Flavors are so sweet. Almost too much sweetness amplifying the chocolate, vanilla, toffee, dark toast, and simmering brown sugar confections. Full bodied silky smooth feel is heavenly. This was not a cheap beer, but I should have taken two of them home anyway. Won't hesitate to purchase this again.

Saved for Christmas - Pours from the bottle a dark brown with a reddish brown finger of head that leaves after a couple minutes. Big aroma of cocoa, roasted malts, dark fruit and coffee. The taste follows the aroma closely, but the smokiness of the malt is more prominent. The booze is hidden so well. Creamy, thick, chewy mouth. This is so well put together; complex without anything being overpowering. Excellent stout.
