Pours black with a creamy brown foam head. Smells like dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, berry, mild smoke, caramel, molasses, brown sugar, toast, with floral earthy herbal grassy pine.

Pours pure black, with a generous head. The aroma is very pleasant, promising flavors of coffee, chocolate, and maybe nuttiness. While drinking, the first impression is how full bodied this brew is. The feels is very full bodied, with a very pleasant after-taste that finishes with a slight alcohol flavor. This is my 2nd most favorite beer, and I highly recommend it.

Also had on Christmas Eve but not in a New York Hotel Room

L: Pours bright black with ruby highlights under a ½” lacy dark tan foam cap that is moderately persistent.

S: Roast, coffee, dark malt and faint chocolate aromas.

T: Alcohol spice, rich chocolate, traces of coffee, some rich dark sugars produce a light sweetness. A faint hint of baking spices such as cinnamon or nutmeg. The roasty malt flavors are medium high, the hop bitterness medium, the alcohol flavors are medium, the yeast flavors and hop flavors are medium low.

F: Very creamy medium full body and medium carbonation with a mild and pleasant alcohol warming.

O: This is a big imperial stout with a very pleasant blend of flavors.

One of the better imperial stouts I've tried recently. The same quality you expect from Evil Twin ,at %10 ABV it still retained a smoothness and drinkability that was surprising. Be careful with this one, It may go down a little too easy. Don't start your night with this beer. Your taste will be ruined for anything else.
