4.45/5  rDev +6.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled 5/21/14.

Appearance: totally black with a thick finger of rich, frothy dark-tan foam. Very good.

Smell: extremely rich aroma of chocolate, malt and rich, dark fruits: raspberry, cherry, date, raisin; it's like a Belgian quad and a porter got together. This seriously appeals to me.

Taste: much like the aroma, it's extremely rich and fruity. The same dark fruits are there, along with chocolate and a very impressive smoothness for a beer this strength. Two words: more please.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a big carbonation and very good creaminess indeed. Shazam!

Overall: there are few beers as spot-on calculated to appeal to my taste. I love this.

I'm fairly new to reviewing brews. I have, however, been drinking craft brews and seeking the best beer I can find for many years. I picked up a 4 pack of Lil B yesterday and I couldn't wait to get home and try it. The reviews I've read about Evil Twin Brewing are phenomenal and they are really on the cutting edge with the stuff they're putting out. Let me tell you, this beer does not disappoint. I've never given a beer a "5" rating because I always want to leave room for improvement. This is the closest thing to a perfect beer I have come across in my travels. Outstanding by any means. I didn't want the one I drank to end. Do yourself a favor and give this one a try. It will not disappoint.

4.24/5  rDev +1.7%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: I noticed some leakage from the cap when I unpacked this beer yesterday and when it poured out flat I was not surprised; I am just going to rate it a "4" in this category and presume it would have poured with the typical mocha head on the pitch black liquid

Smell: Dark chocolate, mocha, licorice and prune

Taste: Dark chocolate and prune, up front, with the licorice and mocha elements building in the middle; fudge and black bread tones, after the swallow, with some coffee in the finish

Mouthfeel: Again, I am going to give this a "4.25" as I presume that the full body would have been matched by some carbonation rather than the flatness I encountered

Overall: A really nice Imperial Porter (as distinct, of course, from an Imperial Stout); nice range of flavors
