Absolutely incredible, smooth, sweet, savory, full of dark chocolate notes with a light haze of espresso suffusing this wonderful concoction. Black as my heart and smoother than the tongue of the serpent in the garden of eden, I strongly recommend this beer.

Dated 3/24/16. Poured into a snifter it has a chocolate brown head of and inch and a quarter of thick foam with a pitch black body. Smell of chocolate, coffee, lots of roasted malt, and lots of vanilla. Taste of thick milk chocolate, lots of roasted malt, coffee, fudge, and very sweet caramel. Mouth feel is rich and fudgey, body is the same with a moderate to full carbonation. A thick delicious sweet stout with tons of roasted malt, perfect.

Opaque, near black body with nearly a half inch of dense, beige head. If Evil Twin is involved, the stout will have a beautiful appearance. Roast and chocolate in the nose. Lovely. Terrific flavor. So rich and full. Silky on the palate. This, friends, is a world class imperial stout.

Shockingly good. Tastes like bacon blended with a devastatingly rich impy stout. Awesome.

This is really great. It has the usual chocolate-ish, coffee-ish, roasted malt notes you'd expect from a big stout, plus some not so usual hints of licorice. However, it also possesses a kind of leathery, smokey, tobacco thing which really pushed it over the "very good stout" edge and into the black, tenebrous pit of exceptional stouts.
