Complexity, a lot of flavors underneath, but for me unpleasantly overwhelming winey taste of alcohol on top of everything. If you cannot balance a high abv brew with other flavors, you should not release the beer. If that does not bother you, you will probably love it.

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. Pours black with a little light getting through; mocha head that fades quickly and leaves decent lacing and retention. The aromas are very nice. Tons of milk chocolate with hints of vanilla. Some caramel and butterscotch in the mix as well. Chocolate dominates the aromas and flavors. Tastes very rich. Milk chocolate and dark chocolate shine. Some dark fruits in the mix. More vanilla and butterscotch. The flavors follow the nose perfectly. Although this is a big brew and there's hints of a warming sensation, the alcohol basically goes unnoticed and it's not hot or boozy. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's full-bodied with moderate carbonation. Silky and smooth. Dangerously drinkable.

This is a winner from Evil Twin. They know their dark beers, and this is no exception. Although this is an "Imperial Porter", there's no doubt that you'll feel like you're drinking an Imperial Stout. Well done. Recommended.

Unctuous chocolate black with stiff leather brown head that fades a bit too fast. 4
Steak crust, fig, 70% chocolate, and whiskey barrel on the nose - deep. 4.25
Ganache, dates, slight smoke, umami, then all sort of Christmas cake - whiskey-soaked dark cake with cherries and raisins - but most of all chocolate. Hints of brandy and slight soy, too. 4.25
Vinous acid finish and plum liqueur-filled chocolates and hints of vanilla to linger.
Medium-full, silky, big chew. 4.5

-- Like drinking a chocolate fountain. How is this not stout? Deep, amazing body, with the heat buried - hard to fault at all. Low on roast, coffee or licorice; instead juggles sweetness, dark fruits, chocolate, savoury and port notes. No hint of hops.

Sip it like a cognac - superb. 4.25
