Poured into a Syndikatet tulip-ish glass...
A: Glossy black; 1/2-finger sandy head of loose foam; no lace; minimal retention.
S: Dark chocolate; cookies; crusty brownies; roast malt; weird / artificial malt (sweet); almonds; peat smoke.
T: Sweet malt; chocolate syrup; coffee; darkness.
M: Full body; moderate carbonation.
O: A big, chewy, roasty stout - probably wouldn’t have again, though; a definite sipper.

This stout has the look, thick and oily and pretty vicous. It doesn't have much of a head, just a layer on top that recedes to some heaviness at the edges. What little head there is manages some spotting.
The smell is nice, all big malt and bittersweet chocolate and vanilla/toffee notes with a little char but no acrid note, avoiding too hard a bitterness.
The taste essentially follows suit, more roast coming out and, accordingly, a touch more char. Each sip has a vanilla, caramel and toffee sweetness to it, though aside the bittersweet chocolate and a roasted coffee note. The main difference here is that there is an acrid note that follows each sip into the finish, though it's not hard enough to mar it too much.
The feel is good, robust without being too heavy, thick without being cloying. It goes pretty smooth all the way from the beginning to the end of each sip. there's something about the beer's even, steady creaminess and the fact that it doesn't need to rely on crispness, having just the very slightest but just remaining lush the entirety of each sip for the whole session.

Served from bottle into a Westbrook snifter (semi-proper!). Poured a massively dark brown (almost black) with a one finger light tan head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, coffee, earth, roasted malt, dark chocolate, and subtle dark fruit. The flavor was of roasted malt, earth, coffee, and dark chocolate. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a good brew. The aroma on this one was definitely the highlight of this one with a really nice note of dark chocolate and coffee going on here with just a kiss of sweetness. However, on the flavor it was quite roasty and toasty. This was just a touch overwhelming for my palate as there was no real balance aspect going on at all. Really wish there would have been a touch of sweetness to help make this one much more easy to drink. But it has to be said, that you would not think this one was 10% by aroma or flavor alone. Definitely worth your time trying if you have not done so already.

Gorgeous jet black color holds a deep brown frothy head that collared quickly.
Very coffee-centric in the nose I caught some Graham cracker, marshmallow, char and smoke.
The stout played tricks on me as it came out richly with chocolate. Maybe a touch of caramel but really chocolatey. Suddenly it changed to an iced coffee flavor, with some marshmallow sweetness. Then I get cracker like malt, kind of bready, with char and tobacco. This ended more towards coffee and cigar. The 10pct ABV is incredibly well hidden and I found no warmth or evidence.
Outside the worst name ever, this is an exciting and interesting take on a very good beer.

Poured into an Elysian snifter. Pours pitch black with only a thin light brown ring of foam around the glass leaving light lacing. Rich aroma of toasted malt, molasses, coffee and chocolate; hints of smoke and vanilla. Flavor follows, dominated by toasted, slightly charred malt, chocolate, vanilla and coffee. Finishes with a light bitterness and residual woodiness, hints of smoke and charred coffee. Nice medium to heavy bodied with mild creaminess. Finish leans towards the dryer maltiness of a foreign export, but retains the richness of flavor of an imperial stout. Quite nicely done.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high light beige head that died down a bit but consistently left a large collar of large bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of cocoa and burnt malts are present in the nose.
T: The taste is similar to the smell and also has notes of roasted malts and hints of dark chocolate along with a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: If you like flavors of burnt malts, roasted malts and chocolate, this is a really nice beer tat also hides its alcohol well.

Bottle. Pours a thick and near black color with a smallish dark tan head. Nose has some great roasting and coffee elements to it with some light and subtle bitterness being present underneath. Taste is a little bitter and almost burnt, but still very roasty with a very subtle sweetness finishing it. I like it.

11.2oz bottle into a snifter
no bottling dates
Thanks to jsteel2 for sending this one over as an extra!
A: Opaque black with 1 fingers width of tan colored head, which dissipates down fairly quickly and leaves only a few small patches of lacing.
S: Big roasty, tobacco, and leather notes. Ash, a bit of cocoa and coffee.
T: Tons of leather notes, tobacco, roasted malt, cream, subtle chocolate and coffee.
M/D: Full bodied, a bit chewy, appropriately low carbonation, good smoothness, ABV well restrained and drinkability is good.
O: Another good IS from Evil Twin, this one reminds me a lot of Mini Growler, except I remember Mini Growler being a little better. Either way, certainly worth a try, but ET has many other IS's that I prefer to this one.
