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.

Bomber poured into an East End Brewing snifter:

Look: Pours a nice jet black color with a light tan head. Some lacing is present with decent retention.

Smell: Plenty of roasted malts on the nose along with some chocolate notes. Wish this had a bit more coffee notes and this score would be higher.

Taste: Some dark fruits pop out on the taste. Very smooth tasting for 12% as the ABV is well hidden. Also nice chocolate notes and roasty malts which follows the nose.

Feel: Medium bodied.

Overall: Very solid imperial stout from Evil Twin! Only complaint is I wish this had a bit more coffee flavor to it. Glad I picked up a bomber of this to try and I would definitely pick this one up again!

Poured into a snifter. The appearance was a thick dark brown color leaning to the black color. A nice one finger-ed off white to tan head hung around for a good minute before dieing into the beer. Light lacing all around. The smell starts off with thick milk and dark chocolate, like sticky fudge/brownie like bold cakey-ness. Subtle roasty coffee slides in for a nice balance with some light sweet dark fruits (really underneath for the most part). The taste leaned towards the sweet side with a fine roasty blissful quality about it. Super smooth fudge-like to brownie-like quality of an aftertaste and then leading on into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium to almost full, yeah, this’un a thickin’, wooee, just what a Double/Imperial Stout should really be. Big sticky wooley chocolatey feels conglomerate on my tongue, but not cloying, yeah, wow, I just said that. Overall, this is that Double/Imperial Stout that one looks at, then you smell it, and then you taste it and hot damn, you think to yourself if Webster’s had a definition of a Double/Imperial Stout and had a picture of the beer, this would be the beer in the picture.

This bottle in particular was aged for a year.

L: Looks standard for the style. Pours a lovely oily black; not too much light penetration when held to a light. The head is tan and doesn't dissipate very quickly.

S: The smell is fairly strong, although I would have expected it to be more powerful than it actually is. Roastiness dominates the nose, and lovely coffee and chocolate notes round it out.

T: The taste seems to be the weakness of this brew. While it does taste good, there is little depth to the roastiness. The malt definitely has several layers of flavor, there is almost a dark fruit taste to some of the residual sugars present, while the fudgey sweetness that the beer is eponymous for nearly dominates the palate. There does seem to be a slight acrid note that is offputting. Booziness can be detected as well.

F: The beer has medium carbonation, I wish it had a little bit less. The head is rich and creamy, but I wish it had more retention. There is a nice silkiness to the body though, which makes it a pleasure to sip.

O: A good imp stout, but not something I would rebuy. I probably would have rated it higher if it was a cloyingly sick chocolate bomb honestly, but it wasn't. While I do not regret the buy, there are just too many wonderful Imperial stouts on the market in America currently. Still worth trying though!

22 ounce bottle, Batch #003 08:45 stamped on the bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head. Head retention is good, and there's a small amount of lacing. The brew smells like bittersweet and milk chocolate, roasted malt, dark bread, dark fruit, and some toffee. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some licorice, molasses and ashy flavors noticeable too. It's a more bitter/roasty imperial stout than it is a sweet one. Mouthfeel/body is full, it's creamy and coating with a moderate amount of carbonation. It's a little boozy, but not as much as I expected it to be. Overall I think it's a good imperial stout. Definitely recommended if you haven't had this before! $6.99 a bomber.
