330 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Inky black. Not much head. Thin mocha collar. Glass staining. Great body.

Smell - Molasses and bucket of black patent malt. Definite alcohol presence. Slightly fruity.

Taste - Sweet and boozy up front. Less roast. More caramel. Sharp alcohol bite in the finish. Some chocolate and alcohol blended together in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Boozy. Medium bodied. Slightly acidic.

Overall - I remember enjoying Even More Jesus a lot more than this. Missing some of the roast I remember.

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.

I allowed this beer 1/2 an hour warming from fridge temp.
The beer pours a motor oil black with a thin blanketing of dark tan head that fades into a thin halo with modest lacing. The nose is very potent and distinct of slightly roasty malts, ethanol, coffee, and bitter chocolate. Seriously, it has a very pungent nose. The taste is relatively malty and sweet upfront with a pleasantly roasty, boozy afterburn. Honestly, I can't say I've had many imperial stouts quite like this beer. The mouthfeel is thick and malty, sweet, with a slight bitter chocolate roastiness in the finish. Pungent, interesting flavors and a big ethanol burn make this an evening sipper. I'm glad to try this beer and think it provides a relatively distinct alternative to most american made imperial stouts...although at a price.

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.
