1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with stylish understated label art and pry-off pressure cap (unbranded) acquired at a SoCal bottle shop for $17.00 (ouch!) and served into a flared stem-snifter/tulip hybrid glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are high; I loved imperial biscotti break. 12% ABV confirmed. Imported by Twelve Percent LLC.

A: Pours a gorgeous rich tan-brown colour head, one finger in width. Amazing mocha creaminess; wow. Fantastic thickness. Shiny soft complexion. Even consistent thick lacing coats the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Head retention is pretty respectable given the high ABV; about 1-2 minutes - forgivable.

Body colour is an opaque jet black. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Love the colour and the appearance overall. Wow.

Sm: Rich chocolate, unrefined sugars, molasses, roast, dark malts, chocolate malt, dark fruit (dates in particular), marshmallow, cream, and maybe a hint of fennel.

Not getting any yeast character, hop character, or alcohol off the aroma.

Overall, it's a pleasant aroma - and surprisingly light. Not the most evocative, but the notes are there if you really look deeply.

T: Dark chocolate, chocolate malt, marshmallow, unrefined sugars somewhere between pimoncello and a darker molasses-like sugar, treacle, subtle caramel, molasses, vague dark fruit (definitely dates, but I don't get much in terms of plum or fig), a kiss of fudge, light buried truffle, dark malts, and very buried roast. On the sweeter end but by no means cloying. Pretty well balanced, with interesting complexity and some subtlety to the execution. I quite like it. Certainly a rich flavour profile.

Depth of flavour is above average. Intensity and duration of flavour are average for the style, but high overall.

Not all burnt or charred. No smokiness. The label claims it has a note of coffee, but I'm not getting that at all from the taste - which is a bit odd. Just a bit of alcohol does come through. No yeast or hop character does.

Mf: Silky and creamy. Wet. Unrefreshing. A biteen gooey. Slightly overcarbonated, but it's forgivable. Complements the flavour profile nicely. Not harsh, gushed, or biting. Nicely thick. Sticky. Chewy.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable; I'll have little trouble killing this bottle alone - and that says something at 12%. A solid stout from Evil Twin, but I do prefer Imperial Biscotti Break. It's a tasty beer well worth trying for fans of the style, but I find it falls well short of the greats.

By the time I poured the last of it into my glass, there was a turd-like clump of wet yeast left in the bottle. So it seems to be bottle conditioned, and development with age should be anticipated.

Constructively, the sweetness and richness undercut drinkability. And better beers in the style have a lot more going on in terms of complexity and subtlety, whilst attaining a better execution of balance.

This really wasn't all that good. The taste was a weird mix of oiliness, sweetness (too much), and a strange maltiness. Nose was interesting, and there was very little head, but overall I didn't even want to finish the 4th of a bottle I had while sharing it. Was expecting more.

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.

Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into a brandy snifter.

A: Bubbly tar pitch. A finger of dark chocolate milk head. The beer is black and sticky.

S: I can smell this from feet away. Sweet, sweet chocolate. Coffee. Roasted malt. Licorice. Brown sugar.

T: Wow. A darn good stout. Really luxurious and malty. Unfortunately, the flavors aren't really there. Damn good imperial stout, but not much else beyond.

M: Smooth as silk, and completely brilliant. Huge and fat and chewy and incredible.

O: All told, this was an exceptional beer. I have zero regrets about the inordinate pricetag.

Big thank you to wordemupg for this and all the other killer beers!!

Appearance. Pours very thick and very black. Not much for a head besides a light brown collar. Looks ominous.

Smell. Bakers chocolate, some dark fruits and espresso, brown sugar and dark roasted malts.

Taste. Big bakers semi-sweet chocolate, a little bit of dark fruit and espresso, and some smooth dark malts.

Mouthfeel. Very full body, low carbonation.

Overall. Fantastic stuff. Big flavour and mouthfeel but smooth and drinkable considering.

Received in trade from Bencooper27, thanks for the opportunity!
Pours thick and black with a small tan head that needs coaxing to even appear. Smells of brownie batter, chocolate, licorice and smoke with hints of alcohol and dark fruits poking in from time to time. The flavor is really sweet with thick chocolate cake batter mixed with cherries and plums with a bit of smoke and a lot of anise. Mild alcohol is present but not too distracting as is a hint of oxidation. Thick like oatmeal body with a light level of carbonation and a sweet syrupy mouthfeel. Nice imperial stout, I enjoyed it.
