650ml bottle poured into a snifter.

Pitch opaque black in color, it tops with massive silky brown head that withstands with great retention before slowly subsiding to an eternal foamy layer on the surface and leaving unbeatable web of lacing all around.

In a nose, fudge, cream, caramel, charred bread, roasted, slight nuttiness, lots of licorice, lots of fruit like dark cherry, prune, plum, and dark grape, yet some soy sauce, and some spicy booze. It is reminiscent of wine in some sense.

The taste is so big with plenty of licorice and dark cherry as well as dark grape just like a fine wine. Alcohol is not hidden but it is there to show with its spice and warming touch. Also at the same time, there are notes of roasted, burnt bread, slight soy sauce, and charred nut participating. Great for sipping.

Rather full body with some chewiness touch but not that sticky with mild carbonation through the palate, the mouthfeel is soft and smooth while the feeling is well-rounded with a very dry finish.

Quite unique Impy Stout, there is not much of typical chocolate or coffee here but focus on sweet fudge, big licorice, dark cherry, grap-ish like wine character, and big booze.

3.58/5  rDev -10.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A 22 fl. oz. bomber with no clear bottled on or best before date other than Batch #02. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Black in colour with a half finger brown head that had decent retention and left some spotty lacing.

Aroma: Roasted malts, chocolate, liquorice and some booze.

Taste: Chocolate, liquorice, caramel and booze with a hint of char.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.

Overall: This was ok cold out of the fridge, but as it warms up a bit, which is when Imperial Stouts usually thrive, it actually became more boozy and perhaps overly harsh. Also, while there is some chocolate in the flavour, it is nowhere near what we are led to believe in the name ‘Liquid Double Fudge’.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Deep dark black with a creamy tan head that lasts a long time.

Smells subtly of chocolate, malt, alochol and roasted grains.

Flavor is complex and wounderful. Some sweet, some roast, some dark fruits, not boozy, not hoppy. A good stout flavor. Not much chocolate for something with fudge in its name, but its there and it tastes great. Not getting the coffee flavor I find in a lot if modern stouts. Its ommision is not missed, wouldn’t belong in this beer.

Smooth full body mouth as a good stout should.

Overall I like it a lot.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours black with a thin caramel colored head that forms less than a finger high. Head retention is okay, with no lacing left behind. Aroma is hearty, and dark, with notes of chocolate, molasses, and lactose. Flavor profile is chocolate, and molasses, in between thick and dense notes of hearty roasted malts. Alcohol becomes much more apparent as the beer warms. Mouth feel is medium in thickness, with a medium-fine smoothness and creaminess. Overall, a robust and hearty stout that delivers strong notes of chocolate and molasses. It isn't overly sweet, with the slightly bitter roasted malts balancing out the flavor profile well.

Served in a 12oz snifter from a 22oz bottle.

3.92/5  rDev -2%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours out thick and jet black with a two finger tan head; shards of lacing hang around

Smell: Ashy, with dark chocolate, soy sauce and espresso tones

Taste: Dark chocolate forward, with a lot of soy sauce and roast; rather bitter, through the middle, with espresso tones building; the finish is very roasty, verging on ashy; dry in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Full body with moderate carbonation

Overall: With a name like Liquid Double Fudge, I was really expecting something quite different; this one dashes to the ashes and never really develops the chocolate fudge aspect; smells much better than it tastes

A: Pours a pitch black color with 2 fingers of head that fades down to a thin cap

S: Roasted malt and chocolate up front along with a touch of coffee and char

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with the chocolate and roasted malt along with some light coffee. Moderately sweet with a bit of booze. Finishes with lingering chocolate and char

M: Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation

O: A solid stout that is a great sipper. Surprisingly easy to drink given the 12%. Could use a little more sweetness given the name, but at least it's not cloying at all

Bomber poured into Teku glass.

Not going to spend much time on this one. It's a dark alcohol forward stout with a bit of char on the finish. Not at all complex, much more bitter than I anticipated. Not reminiscent of any fudge that I've ever tasted. Does not live up to it's billing and a rare disappointment from Evil Twin for me. A shame; I was really looking forward to this beer.

22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown black with a medium creamy light brown head that retains well and leaves some lacing.

The aroma is sweet bakers chocolate, roast malt, a little fruit and some alcohol.

The flavor is very sweet chocolate malt and dark fruit with some black licorice and an acidic roast ashy alcohol finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and slightly watery.

Overall, not nearly as good as it sounded.

Poured from a bomber.

Pitch black with a half finger head that dissipates quickly. Minimal lacing-- some but not a whole lot. All typical for the style.

Aroma is chocolate, roasted malts, and molasses.

Taste is lots of chocolate and roasted malts. Just a hint of coffee. Sweet and savory with some bitterness.

Feel is heavy. Low carbonation. Very smooth overall.

Overall a great imperial stout.
