O - It was a pretty good imp porter (eventhough it felt like a stout), ABV really comes trough. Could have used a tad more carbonation for me and maybe a few more hops..

12oz bottle ~$3.50. Super dark black, huge head at first which was dark brown. Aroma is sweet, dark, hints of cookie dough, smells rich. Flavor was super rich dark chocolate, sugar, no hint of alcohol at all. This could just as easily been labeled as an imperial stout, not sure what the difference here is but this was quality. In fact, I think this was better than the imperial biscotti break. Good stuff.

12 oz bottle poured into a nonic pint glass at cellar temperature.

L – Black color with a thin 1-finger rocky, brown head that dissipates relatively rapidly even with a vigorous pour. No lacing. Perhaps one of the redeeming factors of the appearance is the viscosity of the beer itself.

S – Tons of rich, dark, malty aromas such as dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, plums, raisins, currants, and a bit of soy sauce.

T – Much like the aroma, there’s tons of rich, dark, malty flavors starting with bittersweet dark chocolate, molasses, and some dark fruits like plums and raisins. As the taste progresses, more bitter, roasted coffee flavors come into play along with spicy, vinous phenols.

F – Medium-full-bodied, not much carbonation, a creamy, sticky, and velvety mouthfeel, and a spicy, bittersweet, somewhat dry, and somewhat hot finish. Bitter coffee and vinous, spicy phenol flavors linger and pair with a strong throat-warmth from the alcohol.

O – I know that styles don’t quite matter, especially when you’re talking stouts vs. porters, but the only thing that is like a porter about this one is the slightly thinner mouthfeel. This smells, tastes, and feels like an imperial stout. It certainly has the ABV for it. It smells very nice and tastes good, but drinkability suffers with the high ABV and strong throat-warmth. I’ve heard that this is the base beer for (Imperial) Biscotti Break and I’ll tell you, I much prefer this. It is not cloying at all and has more roasted character. Nice beer from Evil Twin.

12oz bottle poured into a large snifter.

A: Pitch black. An eighth of an inch of brown head dissipates quickly. Lacing is sparse and spotty.

S: Deep fudge and dark chocolate sauce aromas. Tootsie rolls. Espresso. Hint of smoke. Chocolate covered raspberries. Big esters of raspberry, currant, and brandy. Vinous. Soft-spoken alcohol.

T: Vinous. Brandy and sherry. Currants and raspberries. Chocolate covered cherries. Malt takes hold slowly, first with a deeply roasted espresso flavor that builds in intensity. Char. Bitter dark chocolate. Woody roast. Drying finish with lingering flavors of heavy roast, soot, char, and smoke.

M: Thick in body. Coating. Silky with a slick feel that glides over the tongue. Little to no carbonation.

O: A huge beer at 11.5% abv. Its power is obvious with all the vinous qualities, but it drinks very gently. Evil Twin makes some gargantuan beers, but what's more impressive is their ability to keep these beers drinkable despite their brawn.

12oz bottle from Hop City (Atlanta, GA). 13.99. Bottled 6/10/13. Served in a Cigar City snifter.

Pours ink black with a three quarter finger cap of mocha hued head. It looks like the thin ring of head wants to lace but it slowly slinks down, leaving none.

The nose seems a shade muted. Cocoa, coffee, roast, a little smoke and faint caramel.

Flavors are bold and roasty. Coffee, dark cocoa, roasted malts, stone fruit skins, burnt caramel, char, trace brown sugar and a nice little burn from the alcohol. Bittersweet and delicious.

Heavy and creamy with light to moderate carbonation. A long bittersweet cocoa and roasty finish along with a slight alcohol cooling effect.

This is an enjoyable imperial porter. It compares favorably to many top tier imperial stouts, doing nothing to clarify that vague line between porters and stouts (if there ever was one to begin with). I'm glad this came in a 4 pack because I get to enjoy it 4 times over the coming several months. Another big dark beer from Evil Twin that deserves your money.

Pours a deep dark cola brown with a thinner beige head atop that doesn't last long,aromas of dark fruit and brown sugar really jump out at ya,sweet alcohol and a faint nuttiness there as well.Dark fruit and a whiskey-like flavor up front with minimal roast and more molasses and brown sugar sweetness in the end,it's all of 11.5% here.It's big and pretty sweet but I like it,sweet but not overly so it's a great sipper.

The beer pours like dark roast coffee, oozing between a deep brown and a black coloring. It pours with a tiny head of miniscule, dark khaki bubbles (as is expected at this ABV), which quickly slicks into a scrim ring along the glass. The beer leaves a super slick, thin curtain of lacing when it washes over the glass, along with a small set of legs to suggest its alcohol content. In body, the beer is too dark to penetrate, but as it pours it does not seem to be the thickest thing to ever come out of a bottle… On the nose, the beer smells richly fruity with dark plum, raisin, and chocolate notes. Brown sugar and dates also appear on the nose, along with the ghost of fusel alcohol. The smell is richly fruity both in malt and yeast character, blending with slight nutty smells. Roast coffee is also present, but it is sitting beside a very pungent raisin/date/plum dipped in brown sugar and chocolate. On the tongue, the beer tastes richly sweet at first, almost cloying with definite alcohol notes, but this perfectly melds into a dry, lightly bitter roast as the beer finishes. There is a light, tart pop at the back of the finish, which adds a level of complexity that I did not expect from this beer. In flavor, the beer begins as sweet plums dipped in a light chocolate. Faint raisins and brown sugar dance on the tongue after the initial flavor, but they are buoyed along by cloying, sweet alcohol that takes a little away from the beer. Luckily, this alcohol is very brief, and is bludgeoned aside by beautiful, dry, French roast coffee. A touch of vanilla and cinnamon, also, bring light spice to the tongue, perhaps from the alcohol, just as the coffee flavor moves in. The finish is light, but long and gives hints of praline, pecans and milk chocolate. In the mouth, this beer feels silky smooth and on the heavy side of medium in body. Carbonation is smooth and velvety, blanketing the tongue in oozing goodness. The mouth is left roasted dry and slightly sticky. Overall, this is a beautifully complex and rich porter. Its thinner mouthfeel and silkiness definitely lend it to the porter style, and not to the thick and chewy stouts, but it works beautifully. This beer is not revolutionary, nor is it even that weird in today’s beer world, but it is well crafted and richly nuanced. I think it could do with a little aging to smooth out the cloying alcohol in the middle of the sip, but I still think it’s great to drink now.

This is a big beer in just about every way. On the palate it starts out with fruitier notes of cooked cherries, raisins, and plums. On the mid palate roasted undertones of coffee and and bittersweet molasses push forward and covering up the present alcohol. The balance of this beer really shines through in the smoothness in which this beer finishes.

Poured into a snifter

A- Pours pitch black with a fizzy dark tan head that settles and eventually disappears completely, leaving no lace behind

S- Lots of dark fruit on the nose; notes of dried fig, prune juice and raisin. Dark chocolaty malt and some booze close it out

T- The dark fruit flavors directly follow the aromas; big fig and prune flavor, some chocolate covered cherry, blueberry, chocolaty malt that is just slightly roasted, sweet finish with alcohol on the end

M- Heavy and viscous body with low carbonation, chewy mouthfeel with a smooth finish, some warming alcohol on the linger, but pretty well contained for 11.5%

O- Dark fruit is showcased in this brew and its a nice change from a typical porter. It's definitely a sipper, but not overpowering

From 09/22/13 notes. Picked up a 12 oz. bottle of this a few weeks ago in Ardmore, PA at The Beer Shoppe for $3.50. Poured into a snifter. Bottled on 03/21/13.

a - Pours a pitch black color with one inch of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks like a really nice stout or porter.

s - Smells of roasted malts, milk chocolate, vanilla, light coffee, some toasted malts, and light caramel malts. Nice nose, very roasty and some really nice sweet chocolate to it.

t - Tastes of roasted malts, milk chocolate, burnt malts, vanilla, toasted malts, espresso, bitter dark chocolate, light sugar and caramel, and alcohol. Nice taste that follows the nose, but the alcohol is definitely there too. You can certainly tell this is a big porter.

m - Full body and low carbonation. Very thick and smooth. Some alcohol to it; not a lot considering the ABV, but enough that you can tell this is over 10% ABV.

o - Overall I thought this was a very good, strong porter. It's no where near the Aun Mas Cafe Jesus and Imperial Biscotti Break beers, but another good big porter/stout. Lots of roasted notes and chocolate, worth checking out.

A: Nearly jet black with a light brown and foamy head. Like being out in the country, in a forest, on a cloudy night. Dark man, real dark.

S: Fresh tar, charcoal, and booze. If you ever worked or lived near a coffee roaster then you'll get the nose on this beer. Just dirty nasty char funk.

T: Pardon the redundant obviousness of this description. It has this funky fermented quality. And for anyone who likes kimchi you'll know what I mean. It also has this sour wine thing going on that makes my head spin. You'll also get the typical coffee and chocolate notes.

M: Sticky with a low, but lingering, carbonation. Surprisingly, not super heavy for an 11.5.

O: Lil' B is a very sexy beer. There is so much going with this beauty it's hard to come up with a complete and worthy summation. It's incredibly aggressive whilst retaining a refined elegance.

If if you see her, don't hesitate. Make your move or she'll end up between the sheets of another suitor.

*drinks beer to Lil B's "I'm God" album, for thematic effect.*

22oz. bomber served into a snifter

Pours like an imperial stout. It's ink-black, with no head. Seriously, I'm worried that the beer will taste flat. There's just the tracest suggestion of tan foam. No lace to speak of then, but there are alcohol legs.

Upon first smell I wonder if this beer is named "Lil' B" as in "Little Biscotti Break," because this beer bears many resemblances to Evil Twin's lauded, super-sweet imperial stout. The aroma is full of cookie dough and vanilla and chocolate. Full of it. There's also an aroma that smells like a stout being brewed in a commercial brewhouse; It's uncanny how much this smells like a brewhouse. Lots of dry, crumbly cookies. Brownie batter. A flash of darkish fruit, like prunes meets blueberries. If I'm scoring this aroma as a stout? It does very well for itself.

Let's get this straight: this does not taste like a porter. Imperial Porter is a mostly bullshit style anyway, usually it just means "this imperial stout is more roast-forward." But while I can even mentally twist myself to consider, say, Deschutes' Black Butte XX__ series of beers to be related to porters, Lil' B is a stout all of the way. There's no roast. Like, at all.

But what there is is a melange of sweet flavor that together make for a very good stout. The dark fruits are strong here; lots of purple and blue fleshed fruit flavors. Those are grounded in a heavy dose of milk chocolate and vanilla. This tastes like eating a variety of cookies at the same time that you eat a Russell Stover's sampler. It's not cloying, though. This is a marvelous dessert sipper.

The mouthfeel is extremely thick. Many imperial stouts don't achieve the fullness and silkiness that Lil' B does. Overall, this is a very good imperial stout. Forget this porter business. It's a big ol' stout.

12oz bottle into a snifter. 6/10/13 bottling date

pours a pitch black with a half inch dark beige head. coffee, espresso on the nose. a bit faint though. this beer is definitely big. full bodied. roasted coffee up front and a lot of malt characteristics. dark chocolate too. as the beer warmed the flavors really came out. great drinkability for such a high ABV beer. alcohol undetectable. creamy feel, not syrupy.

overall a very good imp stout that fans of the style should definitely try if they see it available.

12oz single from CBX. Bottled 3.20.13 - poured into a Westbrook snifter...

A: Seriously opaque black... like a dusty eight ball; mocha-tan, one finger head of dense foam leaves a few sticky strands of lace.

S: Cocoa; brownie batter; espresso notes; raisins; perhaps a touch of cinnamon; pretty complex - even more so as it warms.

T: Malted milk; dark chocolate; coffee; estery currant notes.

M: Full body; low carbonation; sticky and thick; doesn't quite have the finish of a stout - maybe a touch less roasty.

O: A big time porter... Lack of big finish and maybe a touch of roast help it remain just under stout territory. Definitely nicer and more drinkable as it warms. A big brew at 11.5%

Brilliant ebony coloring gave way to a thin brown head. The frothy foam collared quickly and left no lacing.

The scent had more stout qualities with chocolate malts, toffee, caramel and even a bit of praline. Light char and roast sit underneath a more powerful toffee.

The flavor is smooth, not very full but has a creaminess. That creamy taste is brought about by the strong toffee flavor, sweet and tasty. The caramel malt is a little roasted with a vague smoky flavor.

11.5 pct ABV is completely masked in this exceptionally smooth, creamy and a touch thin drinkable porter.

A big, sweet interpretation of a porter. Tastes like dark chocolate covered cherries with a bit of spice on the finish that gives you a little tingle- cayenne like. Definitely a bit sweet, but in a liqueur sort of way. This would be nice in front of a roaring fire after a nice winter meal, or perhaps as a post-priandal beverage with the missus? In any case it does remind me of a box of chocolates. Not an every day drink, but one with a well-done very particular taste. Very smooth and silky as well. Interesting.

Solid brownish black with a fizzy head that settles to a ring of foam. Sweet chocolates smell with a hint of smoke and roast and molasses. The flavor is rich chocolate, sweet, lightly roasty and bitter. The chocolate and cocoa linger well into the aftertaste. Drinks like it is 7% abv. Smooth feel. Wonderful beer here. Would definitely get this again.

Bottled 6/10/13. Beer number 500!

A - Deep brown hue, accompanied by a large mocha head. Looks like a big stout, leaving nice lacing behind good retention.

S - Cocoa nibs, roasted coffee, slight dark fruit and warmth from the booze.

T - Very complex. Again, how is this a porter? Lots of chocolate here, plum adds a touch of character with deep malt and roasted coffee to make this a big blend of intense flavors.

M - Medium+ body with moderate carbonation.

O - Great complexity with robust flavors , making for an enjoyable sipper. The flavors could be better tamed, perhaps with better balance.

S: Lots of dark chocolate, soy, with a hint of dark fruit.

T: Dominated by dark chocolate and roasted malt. Sweet and flavourful, almost a dessert beer. Definite sweet raisin component.

Pours a black color. 1/3 inch head of a tan color. Great retention and great lacing. Smells of strong roasted malt, sweet malt, alcohol, hops, slight oatmeal, and a hint of sugar. Fits the style of an American Porter. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of roasted malt, alcohol, slight sweet malt, hops, hint of pale malt, hint of yeast, hint of pine, and slight citrus. Overall, good appearance, aroma, body, and blend.

Black no head some lacing

Smells lightly smoked, with a decent malt bill

Tastes similar but with sweetness added, possibly fruit but more artificial desert than natural. Light oak and vanilla. Jerky/pork.

Feels super smooth, medium carbonation, and not at all 11.5ABV.

Overall not sure what makes this a porter, but very good. Cheers.

on tap at hops and pie, this is a dark one. inky black and showing a pretty sturdy and lasting half inch of mocha colored head. the nose on this is a great combination of earthy bitterness and dark malty sweetness, almost like a milk stout with a lot of body and that detectable and intentional residual sugar element. moderately bitter in taste though, warming alcohol too, and a grain density usually reserved for colossal imperial stouts. there is a delicacy to this despite its size, and the blackness of the grain comes through not as bitter as expected. some bakers chocolate gives it a little character, and i get a hint of vanilla smoke before the finish. creamy texture while still being well carbonated, and palate coating as anything. drinks slowly, which is fine, because it really opens up with temperature. this is a dynamite beer, like so many evil twin brews, it holds my attention endlessly.

Pours an opaque brown black with minimal deep chocolate head that dissipates completely.

Roast malt, dark chocolate, a vinous character, tar, and soy form the initial aroma. Mocha and malted milk balls dominate as it warms. Hops are indistinguishable.

Flavor reveals a slightly acrid/vinous character at the outset, which is quickly overwhelmed by dark chocolate, fading to coffee mid palate, and finishing fairly roasty and a touch bitter. Notes of tart cherry add intrigue. The balance is decidedly chocolatey.

Body is full and rich, smooth and lush, with minimal carbonation and noticeable, but not obtrusive, alcohol warmth.

Very rich malt character with an agreeable emphasis on chocolate over roast or coffee. The tart dark fruit character is interesting. Anxious to see how this ages.

a - chocolate decadent appearane. looks like a deep dark stout.

s - roasted dark fruit porter. some soft char to remind me that it is a porter and not a stout.

t - porter. dark fruit with nice roasted malts.

m - extremely smooth. not much char in the feel. the booze is invisible. can't believe it is 11+

o - overall, this was a big surprise. VERY impressive beer with great dark fruit flavors integrated with decadent chocolate. i didn't really know what to expect and have had mixed experiences with evil twin, this one is a winner.

A: The beer is jet black in color and only poured with a few bubbles on the surface. It’s not very thick and poured with the consistency of soy sauce. The beer originally had a thin tan head that quickly dissipated, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: There are moderate to strong aromas of licorice and dark malts in the nose.
T: The overall taste is a lot more complex when compared to the smell and has notes of dark malts, roasted malts and licorice. There is a very slight amount of carbonation.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink considering its strength because the alcohol is very well hidden from the palate and it isn’t that full in body. It’s also not nearly as sweet compared to other beers in the style.
