3.71/5  rDev -12.9%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Pours a dark brown; ochre head, foamy bubbles but nice brute density to it. Lace clings helplessly. Looks good.

Smells pretty strong. Syrupy notes but lots of smoke, espresso, touch of rosewater and tobacco as well. Impressive, not instantly lovely though.

Taste is quite malty, really. Caramel toffee with burnt sugar, praline, developing more roasty notes towards the back, but also a touch of plum and lychee, giving notable sweetness.

Full body, quite syrupy. Gets a big edge towards the back where it verges on injuriously sharp.

Yeah, caramelly and stouty; impressive but also would make a fine dessert pairing.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5

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.

4.24/5  rDev -0.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours jet black with the consistency of motor oil. Half a finger of menacing dark brown head is produced on the pour. Above average active carbonation, especially for the style.

Smell: A lactose sugary sweetness jumps out right away. Dark heavily roasted malts and bitter dark chocolate hit first on the body. Espresso like coffee notes mesh well with heavily roasted malts and lactose sweetness. Some grassy/mossy hop notes are picked up on the back end.

Taste: Touches of lactose and sugar hit the palate first, which quickly come into contrast with heavily roasted malts. Those two battle it out on the front with the sweetness winning out and carrying into the body with accents of vanilla, oak, milk chocolate, and mossy hops. Those roasted malt poke their head through a touch on the finish with accents of tobacco, bark, dirt, and raisins. The finish is surprisingly easy on the palate, milk chocolate and coffee grounds providing a interesting combination of sweet and dry.

Mouthfeel: Decadent silky texture makes this one a joy to sip on for a long time. Combative contrasting textures come together to create an excellent, palate submerging experience.

Overall: A well executed brew by Evil Twin. I guess I should give the execution props to Westbrook but whatever. Rich and the definition of full bodied, this brew is deep and multilayered. There are areas the sweetness comes off a touch artificial and too forward but overall this is a wonderful brew.

3.94/5  rDev -7.5%
look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 5 | overall: 3.75

Produced and bottled for Evil Twin Brewing at Westbrook Brewing Co. No date on the bottle. Pours a viscous deep, dark black with a somewhat cascading mocha colored two fingered head that settles to a thick cap. Some lacing is left down the glass.

Has the customary Evil Twin stout malt profile. I describe it as European stout aroma. Smells sweet with notes of chocolate, dark fruit, some Belgian candi sugar qualities, and coffee grounds. No sign of alcohol.

Big bold flavors. Some burnt and smoky qualities. Roasted malt with notes of chocolate, coffee, tobacco, dark fruit, earth, and wood. Bitterness comes from the roasted malt but this is one sweet stout. A little bit of alcohol heat and flavor in the finish.

Thick and full bodied. Feels like cream on the palate how it coats the taste buds. Chewy. There is life in the body but just enough carbonation to keep things from languishing on the palate. Perfect big stout body.

A lot to take in with this beer. Too sweet for me and I do not really like the Belgian qualities in my stouts. Does possess some outstanding qualities though.

The beer is near black and viscous with an inch of thick, beige head. The aroma brings bitter, dark, and milk chocolates, roast, vanilla, coffee beans, espresso grounds. Thick, palate coating. Rich and lovely. A delightful stout to sip and savor. Full bodied and smooth on the palate, finishing with a gentle warming heat and some bitter chocolate notes. Very nicely done.

On tap at The Pint Room in Carmel, Indiana as a 4 oz pour. Viscous black with dark brown head. Aroma of coffee and burnt sugar. Taste consists mostly of roasted chocolate, molasses, and slight booziness. Another great imperial stout from Evil Twin Brewing.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Viscous, black pour, sticky; reasonable, 1 1/2 finger dark brown head from a vigorous pour, with excellent retention. Brew is black as night.

Aroma leaps out, with huge notes of sweet chocolate riding a wave of booze and roasted barley. This is not a subtle beer, judging by the nose. Big coffee notes as it warms, and an acidic sharpness comes through, as well, along with burned cherry wood.

Flavor is less sweet than the aroma, but everything is represented: coffee and cacao, roasted barley and a hint of smokey, burnt wooden char, and slightly overripe fruit.

Feel is medium-full, not quite as chewy as it appears, and a little harsh on the back of the throat. Long, sticky finish in the mouth, with alcohol heat really only appearing well after.

This isn't leaping to the top of my imperial stout list, but it's very good. It's a little harsh for my taste, but I see why it has its fans. Hell, I think it's outstanding, mouthfeel aside.

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

Poured from the bottle into a snifter glass.

Just motor oil thick coming out, and creating one of the darkest heads I've ever seen. Big dark chocolate colored head, maybe two fingers tall, and quite creamy looking. It settles to a solid thin creamed collar and simple top. Body is black midnight and completely shunted and opaque. Nearly looks like liquid thick chocolate in a glass, aggressive and impressive.

A real varied and complex nose. Tobacco notes and sweet roast. Hints of light smoke and embers. Bitter dark cocoa and chocolate. The smoke notes is coming out larger and is really nicely played in here. Really like this angle, not for everyone though. Virtually no detecting sweetness, and a thick aroma, just great.

Palate just brings the goods. The near perfect mouthfeel is toned down by a lighter body than the big aromas indicate. Still a big coating of thick chocolate washes the palate but is easier to cut through with some lighter fruit contrast. Big notes of dark chocolate which is controlled in sweetness with lots of fudge and nice sugars. Big milkshake quality, with a hint of fruit sourness slightly to match the chocolate. Hints of roast coffee linger on the finish, but most of the flavors hit in the mid palate. Luscious. Smoke dissipates quickly under a wash of large malt and sweet roasted base.

Overall people can complain about how much these ET beers cost, but when the goods are delivered they get delivered real well.

Evil Twin makes some exceptional stouts. Had this beer followed by the Double Barrel version in a mini horizontal. Taken from notes.

Poured from bottle into tulip glass..

A-pitch black and semi oily. 1/2 in. Dark brown sugar colored head Ring left thruout. Incredible lacing. Lots of legs.

S-Fudge brownie, light roasted coffee, molasses, Dark Fruit, slight anise.

T-double fudge brownie, chocolate, molasses,, coffee, some dark fruits, a general sugar sweetness to it as well, slightest tinge of boozy, very slight. Well hidden.

M-smooth and silky, super sticky, light carbonation with slight warming.

O-just absolutely delisious. Lots of thier stouts are a lot alike with slight variations but thats not a bad thing. EMJ had more coffee and was stickier than thier other stouts and less roasty bitter. A delight. Would recommend.

Along the same lines as beer geek only a slight difference in mouthfeel. Amazing beer overall, booziness not as noticeable as I would have though, although there. More fruit tones come through on this especially stone fruits like plum, although not overbearing.

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

Poured from a bomber into a snifter, the beer is jet black and oily smooth on the pour, with a low profile, tightly bubbled, dark tan head that settles out into a halo on the surface. Aromas of blackstrap molasses, baker's chocolate, bitter coffee, vanilla bean, and woody highlights. Extremely rich, smooth, and layered nose. Flavors are roast and subtle char forward, with a blast of richly sweet chocolate and caramel, darkly sweet and rich molasses, woody undertones, licorice and tobacco highlights, and a boozy build of warmth at the end. Wow, this is smooth and velvety in mouth, robust and heavy throughout. The aftertaste is more of the bitter and toasted characteristics, but there is a richly sweet linger straight through the smooth, slick, slow finish. This is a great brew! Share with friends!

Wow this is one dark potent beer.

Pours like used motor oil. With a rapidly thinning mocha head. Minimal lacing. All on point for a heavy hitter Imperial Stout.

Smell is of Black Strap Molasses, Burnt Sugar, Caramel, Chocolate Fudge, Dark Fruit and Booze.

Taste follows the nose well.

Mouthfeel is thick and luscious with enough carb to keep things interesting.

Overall a great beer and style representation. Awesome depth and bang for a non BA beer.

Appears a dense dark black with a fluffy tan head that slowly fades away into a gentle cap and collar. Spotty bits of lacing droop back into the sides.
Smell is of black grapes, toasted grains, chocolate, espresso, caramel, and ripe fruit.
Taste is of the aromas with a boozy blast of ripe fruit, sweet caramel, and toasted grains.
Mouthfeel is full bodied, boozy, sweet, with honey roasted nuts, and cereal lingering in the finish.

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.

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

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

A - black. Thick chocolate brown head of foam raises up from the initial pour. It starts to fizzle out once it settles and the foam color becomes lighter more like mocha.

S - aroma is a decadent array of desserts. chocolate. Brown sugar. Lightly roasted coffee with cream. Hints of vanilla and boozy cherry juice. As it warms it gains more roasty/coffee notes.

T - thick double fudge brownies up front. A dusting of granulated sugar. Mild roasty-ness going into the mid palate. Cherry juice and tingly booze give the beer a depth of character. The roasty coffee comes through more on the backend leading to the finish and lingering along with some booze and chocolate.

M - full bodied. Chewy texture. Carbonation is medium but closer to the higher side. Bubbly and tingly on the palate.

O - love how thick and chewy this beer is. Definitely one of the biggest mouth feels on a stout i've had. I would have liked to have had a bit more complexity from this but this is still a solid effort by evil twin.

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.

A strangely named beer, I think. I could understand "Even MORE... Jesus!" or "Even more, Jesus", but "Even More Jesus" is a name I'd like to get lectured on. But alright, whatever, fine, it's just a name. I got a bomber priced at a damn pricey $15.99... I'd complain more, but when I got Imperial Doughnut Break from the same store it was $17.99. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. After having Imperial Biscotti Break and Imperial Doughnut Break (the former of which was one of my all-time favorite stouts), I saw this and had to get my hands on it... even for the price. I may not have done it ordinarily, but I missed KBS this year, and wanted to try my hand at some highly regarded Imperial Stouts.

Appearance: Black. Only a bit of ruby even when I poured it, it's so dark. A really nice half finger head that stays, surprisingly. Virtually no lacing, but that's not a problem. Lovely pitch black color with a dark brown head. The pour was viscous... just looks dangerous.

Smell: Caramel and chocolate sort of smells dominate also with a sort of mocha aroma when the head's still around. Dark fruits as well, but in a very slight way. Kind of reminds me of how a Milky Way may smell if it were in a beer. I definitely get a brown sugar/molasses sort of sweetness from the muscovado that's in this beer. As the beer warms and the head goes away, it's just a lot of brown sugar sweetness, dark chocolate, raisins, and a pretty apparent smell of alcohol.

Taste/feel: That's a big one. A lot of chocolate with dark fruits and a lot of sticky sweetness on the front, with a great aftertaste. Just a huge, awesome roasted coffee sort of flavor with a slight char flavor and a really nice bitterness. This beer also has a very obvious alcohol presence, though it's not overly done. It can be tasted a little bit, and can certainly be felt. The feel on this one I'm not finding to be as thick as many others do, but it is pretty velvety with very, very little carbonation. Even if the ABV of this were knocked down to 8%, this beer is most definitely a sipper.

I know I've rated this beer as "outstanding" overall, because it is, but for the price, and knowing Evil Twin's quality of their Imperial Stouts, I expected something legendary. I didn't think this would quite stand up to the Imperial Biscotti Break anyway, but it's actually quite a ways off, as it turns out. This is an incredibly complex beer with a lot going on (a sort of dark fruit tanginess, muscovado sweetness, roasty bitterness, velvet mouthfeel, caramel and chocolate nose [at least initially]), and I can more than appreciate this beer, but I somehow got my expectations too high.

If you love Imperial Stouts, I don't need to tell you to try this beer. It's certainly pricey, but this beer does have a little something about it that's different than many others "up there" in the style. The problem with this beer is that it's just really quite expensive. A bourbon barrel aged version of this beer would, like most in the style, have me bumping up the crucial categories by at least a quarter of a point. Still, as it is now, it's certainly worth a look.

EDIT: I'm actually going to go ahead and bump up the taste and overall by a quarter of a point here. In the past, I seemed to always prefer a colder Imperial Stout because I felt it had more desirable flavors, but in this beer, the phenomenal aftertaste is somehow made better.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours used motor oil pitch black color with a thick 2 finger chocolate brown head that was full of percolating bubbles like lava in a volcano of evil beer, which had the upward cascading bubbles like a Guinness racing to the head that faded slowly and left very good spotty lacing as most of the lacing slid back down into the abyss. A layer stayed on top and this beer stared back at me with black lifeless eyes like Jaws about to chomp down on Quint, daring me to drink it.

Smells of rich chocolate and burnt coffee up front, with charred wood, molasses, vanilla, bakers chocolate or Hershey’s chocolate syrup, burnt grains, peat moss, dark fruit like a raisin (or a chocolate raisin) and booze like a bourbon or port. It almost smells fruity and barrel aged, but the chocolate and burnt coffee keep coming back and dominating. There’s a slight hint of herbs like tea leaf or weed, but basically no hop presence in this rich malty aroma.

Tastes fruity and boozy up front with the chocolate and burnt coffee coming next; it is very complex with a lot of charred and chocolate notes including dark chocolate, burnt coffee, toffee, molasses, burnt grains, peat moss, dark fruit like a raisin, plum or other fruits like a grape that is rotting and changing over to alcohol. The booze is present throughout, bringing heat from the first sip with bourbon or dark rum like qualities that don’t ruin the beer flavor by being too strong – the booze adds to the flavor profile while allowing the brown sugar, caramel, anise and smoky accents trail off to a bitter finish. Like the nose, it almost tastes fruity and barrel aged, but the chocolate and burnt coffee come back and dominate while bringing in more bitterness and a cocoa powder dry finish.

Mouthfeel is very thick and chewy, like a cooled down split pea soup that is smoky, chocolaty and dense with fruity and boozy notes that lead to a slightly bitter finish trailing off with some belly warming heat. The body is heavy with very mild carbonation, strong alcohol flavors and really no balance as this was all chocolate malts and roasted grains with no hop presence.

Jesus, this is not a subtle beer; it is bold, boozy and in your face, and if I thought the name was blasphemous then I wonder what JC would think about his name being used in vein not only in the title but in this beer review. I’m sure he forgives all, but this beer in unforgiving and its booze just reached out of the glass to slap me with a great tasty beer backhand that rocked my world with a combo of malty/boozy sweetness, roasted grains, and chocolate, coffee and a combo of other sweet notes that came out as it warmed up. This is the second bottle I've tried over the past 2 weeks and this is a very complicated and flavorful beer. The booze is strong and present throughout, so any fan of a rich stout or smoke beers will enjoy this brew, but it was just a little too harsh to be a smooth sipper. The 12% kicked me around tonight and left my eyes crossing before I went to bed.

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 - Black, dark brown head has good retention and some lacing.

S/T - Roasted coffee/malts roll into bitter dark chocolate mid palate, finishing with a chocolate syrup sweetness that has minimal bitterness. Booze heat kicks in the finish, maybe a little too much for my taste.

M - Huge body, lower carb level, Leaves the mouth coated, but the booze dries it up a touch.

O - Pretty good stuff here. The booze presence is bit much for my preference, but this is kind of expected with the abv.

On tap at Monk's.

Very attractive beer, appeared jet black in the dark light of the bar, topped with a thick, creamy cap of mocha head, which retained well; a few dots of lacing and some unctuous legs on the glass. This is how I like my stouts to look. Roasty aroma, coffee, chocolate fudge, toasted oatmeal, boozy notes. In the taste, roasty coffee and dark malts, cream, dark chocolate, a lactose-like sweetness, toasted oats, a hit of neutral alcohol, and an ashy burnt marshmallow presence in the background. Overall bittersweet, with the roast balancing out the sugars. Medium body, a bit thinned out with booze, but still decent and not too hot. Pretty good overall, but nothing that really blew me away.

A: Pours black with half a finger of dark brown head that fades into a thin ring with no lacing.

S: Roasted malts dominated with sweet chocolate milk notes along with some aromas of vanilla and cocoa powder. Not much going on, but what's there is nice.

T: Roasted malts first and foremost here as well with semi-sweet chocolate, some bitter char, a bit of vanilla, and a molasses-like finish that is sticky and with a decent alcohol warmth.

M: Super viscous body with low carbonation, this beer is sticky and smooth.

O: A good imperial stout overall. I'd like a little more balance and less booze and sweetness, but what's there is nice.

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.
