ook: Looks like a imp stout ought to. Very dark, nearly opaque. Some deep ruby highlights when held to light. Thick creamy mocha head.
smell: Rich, chocolate, roasty coffee fudge. Decadent and smoky.
taste: Rich decadent coffee, dark fruit, and cream with a slightly bitter finish.
overall: An extraordinary imp stout in a time of extraordinary imp stouts. Well done. (368 characters)

A - Pours pitch black with a dark toffee colored head that's creamy, thick, and sticky. Very, very, sticky foam lacing - cotton candy-like in appearance.

S - Dark bittersweet chocolate malt, coffee, toffee, char, and light smoke. Nice and bold overall.

T - Even better than the nose. Dark chocolate roast, some hints of chocolate fudge, coffee beans, char, smoke, some roasted toffee, leather, light tobacco, and a moderate lingering dark chocolate bitterness.

M - Full medium body without being too heavy or syrupy, lip smacking sticky.

O - Ranks right up there with the better stouts I've ever had. Nicely done. (617 characters)

Pours jet black with a short tan head that leaves some lacing. Smell and taste are rich chocolate with very little roast. This is a smooth, creamy excellent stout. (163 characters)

11.2 oz bottle at about fridge temp poured into a snifter.

Pours out an oily thick midnight black color with a thin dark mocha colored head. The head doesn't really last, only keeping a thin ring around the edge, but some thick dark brown legs are left all over the sides of the glass after a swirl. Keywords: black, oily, thick.

Deeply charred, bitter roast, bitter dark dark chocolate, some warm booziness, almost port or bourbon like in a way, that seems to blend in so nicely, really compliments the beer, hints of chocolate cake and as it warms hints of dark fruits.

A really nice tasting impy stout. Burnt bitter roasted malt, bitter dark chocolate, sweet burnt sugar, dark caramel, chocolate brownies. nuances of tobacco, dark fruits. A bit of a warming effect that works well with the beer, but in no way is it overly boozey. Finishes with a really nice deep bitter dark chocolate flavor that really lingers and almost tastes like German chocolate cake at times. As it warms the chocolate flavors are just amazing. What a complex stout!

Amazing mouthfeel. Thick, sweet, oily, viscous, smooth and velvety. A lower carbonation which obviously works well.

Maybe one of the best non barrel aged stouts I've had, so I can only imagine how heavenly this would be in a barrel. It's hard to pick a better one between this and imp. biscotti break, I would almost say this is better, because although I love the coffee in biscotti, I'm not a huge fan of the toasted malt notes, where this is straight deep dark burnt roasted malt. Buy this if you can, well worth the cash. (1,576 characters)

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Brooklyn chalice.

Appearance: Pours jet black with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid finger of dark brown head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A very rich and roasty dark malt driven aroma with a scent of dark chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Dark roasted barley malt with a scent of dark chocolate, coffee, burnt toast, biscuit, grains, yeast, and smoke. Sweet hints of molasses and cream. Dark fruit hints of raisin and plum. Subtle earthy hops. A really solid dark and bold aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a rich and roasty dark malt forward taste with notes of dark chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Dark roasted barley malt with notes of dark chocolate, coffee beans, toast, biscuit, smoke, grains, and yeast. Dark fruit undertones of raisin, fig, and plum. Sweet taste of molasses and cream. Light earthy hop notes in the background. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Rich, creamy, and syrupy. Alcohol heat is hidden well.

Overall: A very good take on an Imperial Stout. Big in your face roasty malt notes with some nice dark fruit underneath. (1,158 characters)

Served in a snifter from a 11.2 ounce bottle. This would be an expensive bomber.

A- Pours oh so viscous. Engine oil. Dark khaki, mocha-colored head. Foamy and thick before receding to a sticky lace over the pitch-black body. Quintessential Evil Twin (with special thanks to all the breweries they brew at). 5

Smells of dark cherries and prunes and boozy chocolate. Some sort of wine or sherry property too. Smells a lot like many of their other beers, which is good, but at some point I gotta cry foul. Is this just the same beer by a different name and packaging as so many other ET imperial stouts? 4

Burnt roast finish... First thing I notice. Dark cherries and sweet, caramelized malts are up front. A touch of boozy flavor that stick to the sweeter flavors. Throughout the palate there are subtle notes of coffee that eventually settle and chill on the palate. 4

Thick-bodied, viscous, and at times syrupy, this beer borders on a digestif. The finish is roast, a bit of burnt feel and bitterness. The brew lingers as a liquor would. 4

Expensive, indistinguishable from other ET imperial stouts, and yet a bit boozier perhaps. Good but far from worth the price. (1,171 characters)

Bottle from Premier Gourmet. Incredible imperial stout. The aroma is mostly chocolate malty and it is irresistible. Black fudge appearance, with 1/4" retained head. Smooth as silk, long roast chocolate finish. Great drinkability. Alcohol well hidden. Excellent. (261 characters)

Beautiful black beer, topped by a firm mocha head with fabulous retention and lacing.

Waves of roasted barley and overripe fruit and red grapes on the aroma. Perhaps a bit of roasted coffee and bitter chocolate from the roast.

Flavor is immediately sweeter on the palate than the aroma intimated; plenty of roast still comes through; big but smooth. Lots of grainy, roasted barley. Slight metallic tinge.

Lovely feel; thick and smooth, very low heat for the ABV, little foaming, no sting. Exceptional drinkability. (517 characters)
