I had this at the opening of Torst in Greenpoint, Brooklyn.

It pours in a pitch black color with a thin head with some lacing. The aroma is amazing, big bitter chocolate, slight coffee, just amazing and inviting.

The taste is gorgeous. It has a smooth bitter chocolate flavor with some coffee. The sweet and bitterness is balanced. It almost has a vanilla creaminess to it from the carbonation.

The mouthfeel is perfect. Big and around, but then it just finishes off so perfectly. I want to emphasized how good it is. It just cuts off the tongue after a smooth easy finish and you want to have more. That is dangerous for 12% ABV!

With some chocolate flavor or heavy stouts out there you get an aftertaste and the throat and mouth just close up to drinking more, this has none of that. There’s no sheen or finish on the tongue.

The comparison I can make is Alesmith Speedway Stout and maybe Brooklyn Chocolate Stout. However, unlike Speedway, it lacks a booziness. It just is smooth all around.

Balance, drinkability, mouthfeel, this beer just does it. The best Imperial Stout I have had next to Bourbon County Brand Stout.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Appearance – Pitch black with a dark chocolaty foamy head. The head dissipates quickly to a thin layer that leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

Smell – A strong scent of coffee, chocolate, molasses, brownie, and heavy malt. Excellent.

Taste – Chocolate, coffee, molasses, and lots of malt. This is a strong tasting, very delicious stout. Awesome!

Mouthfeel – Creamy, somewhat syrupy, lightly carbonated, boozy, but smooth.

Drinkability – This is similar to Even More Jesus, except this is maltier, while the Even More Jesus has a sweet liquor type flavor (anise?) which is also very good. Both are excellent, but to me this is more of a “classic” stout. As of this review, this is my all time favorite beer!

Had this last night with Jeppe at the Max's Baltimore Beer Week event.

Just such a rich smooth smoky smell and flavor. Complex but never offputting.

In comparison to the Even More Jesus I would say this has a tiny bit more smoke flavor while the Even is a little bit smoother and slightly more vinous.

Definitely worth seeking out.

4.65/5  rDev +8.4%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 5

11.2oz bottle into a snifter

A: Pours absolutely pitch black with two fingers of medium brown, dense foam.

S: Dark, burnt malts dominate. I get tobacco, dark chocolate, burnt sugar, toffee, and prunes. This is a kitchen sink stout, but in a good way. I can only imagine how many specialty malts are in this one. As the beer warms, I get significant roast.

T: Dark chocolate and hop bitterness is supported by burnt sugars, toffee, and prunes. Balance between sweet and bitter is nearly perfect, this beer has many flavors on both sides that contribute to its complexity. Like the aroma, I get some roast as the beer warms, particularly in the aftertaste. Booze is evident, but it certainly doesn't seem 12%.

M: Medium to thick mouthfeel with appropriate carbonation.

O: This beer is extremely complex and extremely tasty. I thoroughly enjoyed it. I just wish it wasn't so expensive.

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Poured into a Cigar City snifter at Tryst in Delray Beach, FL.

A- Pours a totally opaque black color with pretty much no head, just some light brown bubbles and a thin ring around the edge of the glass. Tiny specs of lacing stick to the glass.

S- Just all dark roast and some booze. There's also a faint hoppiness detected with some short, sharp sniffs.

T- Incredibly smooth considering the ABV with notes of milk chocolate, vanilla and molasses. Some char comes through as the beer warms. Definitely a sipper but it could be drunk quickly if one has a palate for high gravity stouts. The hops also start to show up as the temp rises.

M- Unexpectedly thin with low carbonation and a hefty body.

O- Very straightforward and certainly worth the $17 for an 11.2 oz bottle. Evil Twin's beers may be pricey, but damn are they great.

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.
