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

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter.

A: Essentially black and opaque, with low visible carbonation, and a thin tan head. This has a nice look, and coats the sides of the glass nicely.

S: Rich roasted malts, cacao nibs, some booze and vanilla – this smells almost barrel aged, but I don't see that it is on the label.

T: Tons of deep roasted malts, cacao, and some balancing bitterness (mild hoppy & more roasted), tobacco, some vanilla, and some burnt toffee near the end, with a fairly mild alcohol heat. Roasted bitterness in the hang.

M: Medium body - not as full as some of the best porters available. The hefty ABV is well-hidden, and has fairly low carbonation sensation.

O: This is a really nicely done BIG porter. Likely blurring the lines between porter and stout, or maybe crossing it entirely, but very tasty. A good offering from Evil Twin for sure.

Pours a five-finger, thick brown head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Nose is chocolate and molasses and flavor is smooth chocolate and molasses malt. Higher ABV is hidden. Decent Imp porter. $4.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, MA. Bottled Feb 19, 2014.

Pours dark mahogany with slight light caramel colored head. Nose is honey, sweet chocolate and sugar. Tangy at the finish. Mostly silken chocolate.. Smoke.. Booze burn and dark cherry. Mouthfeel is thick and heavy. Overall a big beer.. This porter is uniquely smooth and strong

look: 4.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

A-Pours dark brown, nearing black. Light's attempt to invade the beer is feeble at best. The head is a compact sweater of dark brown, bubbly foam. Mild lacing.

S-Plenty going on in the nose. Dark fruit. Mesquite BBQ sauce. Soy sauce. Char. Chalk. Chocolate liqueur. Noticeable alcohol. Molasses. Sweetened coffee.

T-An enveloping, lightly-smoked chocolate flavor with dark fruit and plenty of accompanying sweetness. Barbecue sauce and some soy sauce again. A bit nutty. Relatively lax on the coffee.

M-Full bodied. Heavy on the palate-as it should be. Softer carbonation. Lingering flavors. Fire breather.

O-A decadent, unique beer with aggressive flavors. Very pleased with a single 12 oz. bottle of this. A big, sweet, boozy, hedonistic offering.

Pours a dark, somewhat viscous black. Good heavily tanned head, but it recedes after a while. Lacing is alright for what is there.

Nose is roast, alcohol but also strong dark fruits- quaddy- yoghurt, dark fruits- blackberry, cherry, blueberry, chocolate. Booze.

Taste is more roasty but does recede into continued dark fruits. Then at the back palate there is roast again to remind one of the nature of this beer. I initially got a really cloying sweetness from this beer, I had to have some ice cream with it to actually balance it out but that did the trick.

Mouthfeel is sweet but also a bit roasty, a tad boozy.

Good beer, has some real nice quad-dy notes to but definitely brings roast too. It's sweet though. Needs to be paired with a food that can offset its rather potent sweetness, but an enjoyable imperial stout (or porter or whatever)/quad hybrid.
