I think it's fairly obvious why I'm drinking this beer on my birthday. Yep, I am the second coming.

Pours black as sin, with a creamy little ring of espresso foam around the edge. Not much up there, but it lazes around, taking its time, leaving its scrawl across the glass as the level drops.

Again: rich, deep, inviting. I get a creamy alcohol lead, with an almost acrid coffee grounds type characteristic, though it's much smoother than that typically presents. Sweet, burnt malts toast the nostrils, with dark dark chocolate fudge vein running deep.

The flavour follows the same outline, though presented a little differently. It leads in almost disarmingly thin and sweet, but that only lasts maybe a split second before the thick chewy rich creamy (notice a theme?) burnt malts dance across the stage. That sinfully rich chocolate fudge stream meanders through drawing the finish down to a smoothe easy homecoming. The finish is decidedly acid black coffee, with that creamy sweet fudge from before acting as enough of a chaperone to bring it home safe and sound. 12% is hidden fairly well, though I find myself sipping this one anyway, just because I don't want it to disappear so fast. Also, it's so rich and creamy that small sips are still plenty satiating.
Very glad I grabbed this earlier today. I wanted to grab an Aun Mas a Cafe Jesus as well, but they sold out before I finally pulled the trigger. Oh well. At least I got to try this one!

A very nice beer. I don't think I like it as much as the cafe version, but that's just personal preference. This one pours just as viscous and inky black, with no head. The smell is all licorice, but the taste adds massive bitter chocolate and roasted notes. Silky in the mouth, but with a very long finish. Quite dry, very little sweetness here at all. A fine imperial stout indeed.

Poured into a tulip glass from a 12oz bottle.

Pours a gorgeous pitch black oily liquid. Amazingly deep and dark. I could get lost starring at this brew. So beautiful. There is a nice thin brown colored dense head that recedes pretty quickly and leaves a nice brown little ring around the glass. So so sexy.

Aroma starts off with some nice strong yet approachable fresh ground coffee aroma. Yummy and fresh as opposed to spent grounds smell that other coffee brews have. Strong espresso bean notes as well. Slightly burnt and roasty. There is some nice fudgey cocoa notes also perceived in the nose. Slight sweetness and dark cocoa bitterness with some mild molasas and carmel notes in the nose.

The flavor is similar to the nose except the coffee roast and burnt notes are more intense. The coffee is so fresh and intense but in a good way. Roasted and fresh strong espresso notes start things off and gets helped out by some nice dark chocolate bitter-sweetness as well. The fudge and coffee notes dominate while some slight dark fruit and caramel sweetness lies around the background. Mouthfeel is delicious slick and slightly oily but with a good carbonation that helps keep you wanting more. The 12% is felt somewhat in a slight boozy heat as the brew finishes. Overall this is an amazing brew. The coffee notes are intense and fresh and the dark malt notes give teh brew some good dark bitter-sweet chocolate fudge notes. Well done Evil Twin.

Pours viscous, pitch black and opaque with a one finger beige head that quickly settles into a thin, lasting ring.  Spotty lace left behind.  

Sweet boozy aroma with a decent amount of floral hops, burnt sugars and roasted dark malt.  Subtle earthy pine needle followed by sweet, fudge-y dessert-like chocolate notes and deep roast.  Chocolate, coffee bean,  caramel, toffee and alcohol sweetness along with burnt toast, oatmeal and smoke.

Viscous and full bodied with a really nice balance of earthy hops, boozy sweetness, sweet chocolate and dark roasted malt.  Earthy, resinous and piney hops provid a nice bitterness that compliments that roast and counters the dessert like sweetness.  Grassy pine needle bitterness up front, but not too much, followed by boozy heat, chocolate, caramel and toffee.  This is coutered by smoke and a robust roasted coffee bean presence along with some dark chocolate, oatmeal, burnt sugars and toast.  Plenty of alcohol sweetness but the high ABV is excellently masked.  Never would have guessed 12%.  Really complex and definitely a sipper but it's deceptively drinkable.

Bottle split with my wife tonight. Served alongside the coffee version.

The beer is near black. Opaque and viscous. Small, oily beige head in a filmy layer rests atop the beer. The aroma is huge. Didn't even need to get my nose near the glass. Chocolate and dark roast initially, followed by vanilla and a touch of alcohol. What little alcohol there was in the nose is virtually nonexistent in the flavor. Masterfully hidden. Big and bold stout. Rich and robust. A slow sipper one could easily drink too quickly. A beer I would thoroughly enjoy having again and one I'll be looking for in the future.
