Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing nearly opaque black in the glass with a fine, half finger medium brown head with great retention and nice lacing. Aroma of dark toasted malt, molasses, chocolate and nuts with a hint of licorice and dark dried fruit. Flavor of dark toasted malt with light char, molasses, pecans, dark chocolate, drip coffee. Pecan flavor becomes more clear and authentic in the finish, which has lingering light char and coffee. Nice medium body with moderate creaminess; silky. This tasted pretty much as I expected it to. I'm a big fan of the base stout and the pecans appear as vague nuts in the aroma, but true pecan flavor as it finishes. Complex with good coffee and chocolate notes as well as nice dark malt char. ABV dangerously well covered; but still has a big kick at half a glass. Very nice and the pecan addition was well handled. Looked, smelled and tasted great.

16 ounce can into snifter; Batch#004, no can dating. Pours dense pitch black color with a 2 finger fairly dense and rocky brown head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of big milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, nutty pecan, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, fudge, and toasted dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of licorice, raisin, cherry, fig, date, smoke, char, leather, tobacco, herbal, pepper, and roast/toast/smokey earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/black/roast malts, molasses, pecan flavoring, and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with great strength. Taste of huge milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, nutty pecan, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, fudge, and toasted dark/brown bread; with lighter notes of licorice, raisin, cherry, fig, date, smoke, char, leather, tobacco, herbal, pepper, and roast/toast/smokey earthiness. Light-moderate herbal/spicy hop and roast/char bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of milk/dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, nutty pecan, caramel, toffee, brown sugar, fudge, toasted dark/brown bread, licorice, dark fruit, smoke, char, leather, tobacco, herbal, pepper, and roast/toast/smokey earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/black/roast malts, molasses, pecan flavoring, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a nice roast/hop bitter/sweet balance, and minimal acrid/astringent flavors after the finish. Light-moderate increasing dryness from hop/char bitterness. Medium carbonation and full body; with a very smooth, creamy/silky/bready, fairly sticky/chalky, and slightly slick balanced mouthfeel that is great. Mildly increasing warmth of 12% after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic flavored imperial stout! All around outstanding complexity, robustness, and balance of dark/black/roast malts, molasses, pecan flavoring, and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the big ABV with the mellowly bitter/charred/drying finish. Not as amazing as the base beer as expected, but still really impressive. Very well balanced rich malt complexity, molasses, pecan flavorings, and solid earthy hop presence. Not overly sweet from lingering bitter dryness. A highly enjoyable offering. Very similar base beer complexities going on, with added flavorings.

Poured from a 16oz can with no clear born on date; into a snifter.
Appearance- black as the abyss with a thin pumpkin pie orange head that fades to a sticky ring along the glass; lacing is absent as with most big stouts.
Smell- butter pecan, burnt toffee, and dark roast coffee!
Taste - the notes from the nose are present, but are ultimately overpowered by coffee that has been sitting in the pot for around 2-3 hours.
Feel - considering the 12%, the boozy feel is minimal, but let it sit and hold out hope the pecan pie elements will show themselves...they really don’t.
Overall- the smell from the can and snifter give the pecan pie ambiance, but otherwise it is it’s EMJ predecessor (which is great, but don’t slap another name to the same beer and call it a day).

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a finger high mocha colored head that died down, leaving a thin layer of dark tan bubbles covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dark malts and molasses are present in the nose along with notes of pecan.
T: The taste follows the smell, except that the flavors of pecans are stronger and there are also some hints of dark roasted malts and sweetness.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied and somewhat slick on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer manages to hide its alcohol well, but the fuller body nature of the stout makes for something that is better slowly sipped.

Pouring from a 16 oz. can into a pint glass. This brew pours pitch black in color and forms a caramel colored crown that doesn't have retention, leaving only an outer ring. The smell is loads of sweetness. That molasses is evident by the very sweet almost thick syrupy smell. Can smell the pecans too which is impressive. The taste is surprisingly huge with pecans. Very good presence that I didn't think they would be able to achieve to this extent. Has some sweetness like molasses and caramel in there as well and as the flavor lingers in the mouth it brings a roasty coffee like depth. The mouthfeel isn't too thick to be chewy but it's thick enough to make it a dessert beer. Overall, pretty good Evil Twin.

Sampling a cellar temp 16 oz can poured into my snifter. This beer pours a darker black coffee color than many I have had recently. Even the creamy 3 cm of foam is dark brown and the large bubbles that pockmark the surface look like chocolate chips in the foam as the head recedes to a thin edge layer and one wispy island on the surface of the glass.
The aroma of this beer is fairly sweet with brown sugar and some pecan notes mixing with a good dose of roasted malt. No hops nor any real hint of the booze shows up on the aroma.
The first sip reveals a sticky syrupy textured beer with a thick body and very spacious almost nonexistent carbonation.
The flavor is brown sugar, pecans and coffee grounds. This is a sipping beer based on texture, but isnt hot or boozy and I dont find any hops anywhere on this one. Surprisingly easy to drink for this bigger beer. Its not incredible and the flavor profile is sort of mild for this style and size. Id drink again, but not sure I would chase this beer. Ive had better Imperial stouts.
