Black as midnight pour, thick tan head, nose and flavor of bitter chocolate, coffee, smoked meat, cedar shavings, roast, graham cracker, clove, nutmeg, sandalwood, mandarin orange, tangerine, strawberry, raspberry, apricot, plum, tobacco, leather, raisin, fig, date, and prune. Insanely complex with an absolute motor oil consistency. Even bigger than Dark Lord, and far more balanced and delicious with an eternal syrupy, bittersweet finish. OMG! My new favorite RIS, hands down.

Preliminary: Bottle was 6 month-aged.

Smell: Incredible. Fudge, pecan pie, chocolate, marshmallow, toffee, caramel, artificial sweetener, dark coffee and heavy lactose. This already seems like an incredible imperial.

Taste: Without even contesting, this is hands down one of the best imperial stouts around. The flavor consists of heavy cocoa and roast notes that are balanced by an overlay of sweetness that is unforgettable. Fudge, toffee, caramel, marshmallow, dulce de leche, sweet tobacco, mocha, praline, molasses, sweet grains and intense shit all come out. This is a godly flavor profile.

Feel: Syrupy and tangible. This might as well be converted into an ice cream topping at some point. Sincerely recommend to pair this with lighter vanilla and chocolate desserts considering how dense and viscous it is. An incredible mouthfeel.

Overall: Hands-down, the best imperial stout I have had with a barrel touching it. Had to purchase 6 more bottles to cellar. The flavors become more refined and the texture has a denser hold with age. Hold it as long as you can and enjoy with good company. На здоровье.

An amazing decadent and rich stout. The kind where when you drink it with other serious beer fans, you look at each other with that "wtf did I just sip?! Look. Simple as that.

Wow....Out of the bottle at one of Americas Great pubs the Avenue Pub In NOLA

Upon drinking this I believed I had reached Nirvania....went to the top of my personal list

But I must confess I love big over the top stouts.

You can smell the chocolate, molasses and coffee and then you can taste them...

The beer is smooth and mouthful...and if I could I would start every day with it instead of coffee
I knew nothing about it until I tasted two weeks ago.

Great beer. Strong but disguised well. Chocolate, coffee, raspberry notes. Very unique beer. Pours dark. Light head. Drinkable. Great aftertaste. Might just get a second. Hard not to try something different. Thanks Torst.

Black, bold body, tan colored foam head, no lacing but lots of tiny carbonation bubbles. Fudge, alcohol, dark fruits, and that classic, distinct, Evil Twin phenolic sugar. Bittersweet chocolate, roast coffee, thick fudge, dark fruits, plus sweet and burnt sugars. Mostly thick, coats the palate well, and has a sticky feel. The 12% is non-existent and masked real well. Overall, just another amazing stout by Evil Twin; though I admit they're not for everyone. Tread lightly and enjoy!

Really an excellent and very strong stout. Coffee, licorice, some sweetness, a viscous feeling beer. Bitterness after the sweet.

A: Thick, black, dense, brown head.
S: Boozy, bitter, coffee
T: Coffee, licorice, sweet dark caramel.
M: Viscous, not chewy but.. there.
O: Excellent pay attention. Potential to be religious experience when drunk at the right moment.

Appearance – Pitch black with a dark chocolaty foamy head. The head dissipates quickly to a thin layer that leaves a nice lacing on the glass.

Smell – I could smell this from a distance. Coffee, chocolate, molasses, brownie, a hint of cherry, and a booze I can’t quite place – perhaps a sweet anise liqueur. Really nice!

Taste – Chocolate, coffee molasses and the sweet liqueur I noticed in the smell.

Mouthfeel – Creamy, somewhat syrupy, lightly carbonated, and smooth. A mild alcohol bite from the 12%abv that compliments the taste.

Drinkability – A very intense stout. Similar to the Aún Más A Jesús, but with an extra sweet liquor flavor (anise?). One of my all time favorites!

One pint can pour into tulip.

This was almost everything I expected it to be which was a rarity when sampling such acclaimed beers. My only slight niggles were that the mouthfeel was a touch thinner than I would have liked and the aroma did not quite match up to the richness of the taste. Overall an outstanding beer though; a dark chocolatey, burnt fruit delight. Definitely up there with the best I have ever tried. Cheers!!

Now this is an imperial stout... The pour immediately shows its viscous nature with a syrup like density and tight minimized carbonation. As such, the head is virtually nonexistent. Its color might as well represent the event horizon of a singularity, absorbing any light it comes in contact with. It is that dense and black. The nose reveals star anise, vanilla, cocoa nib, and coffee. One sip reveals the sensation of an egg cream soda but with more tannins and has a long lingering coffee like astringent finish. Like most imperial stouts, this is for sipping and it is absolutely fantastic. Highly recommended.

Honestly, if you like Imperial Stouts, this brew is in the world class arena. I've drank a ton of excellent imperial stouts.. NONE were more intense, thick, chewy and substansial than this one.. Amazing fudge, char, coffee and a perfect bit of sugary sweetness. It's rare that malts were brewed so (nearly) perfectly..

Even More Jesus is World Class.. And then some.. Magnificent!...

Look: Two finger brown head, solid black body.

Smell: Black cherry, dark chocolate, plum, molasses, a little bit of roast.

Taste: Same as above. More roast than the smell.

Feel: Full body, medium carbonation, warming alcohol, sweet and creamy upfront.

Somehow even more jesus from evil twin - Big fan of this here guys. Read up;

L: Beautiful can. Has me believing. What year is this?? Upon a confident pour, the head was a raging, dark, deep, turbulent brown universe, settling eventually into a noble fizzy halo round the glass for the entirety of the drink. Fucking nice, if you’ll pardonnez le frenche. The strangest, faintest lacings left on high. Liquid is jet black.
S: Mocha. I smell mocha. I also smell charcoal, a sort of char, woodsmoke. Definitely alcohol. I’m interested.
T: Liquid leather. A deep, creeping fruit emerges in and after the sip. But before this, at the front of the sip, is baker's chocolate, a railroad sort of metallic taste, an presence of the finest fresh-roasted coffee beans, and a sooty active carbonation, all kick off the flavors in a very heavy, wet, nimble way. More to come on that later. After a time, literally strawberries emerge. Mango. Guava, a very distant, exotic hop. In the end come up again rustic, smokey tones that play out slowly. Lingers exquisitely. Starts like the spark of a match, rides like the flame of a candle, then sets like the sun. FINE AS WINE. Haha, finer! A true stout.
F: F: Its viscosity is over-hyped! Just saying what I feel about what I got. Seen thicker from such breweries as OB’s, SA’s, even san diego’s Stone! But stop right there, and please allow me to say that this thing’s viscosity is very high. It is thick, frothy, oily. It’s about level with perhaps St George’s Cavatica in terms of thickness and some other ways. Its mouthfeel is an absolute smorgasbord, with smooth, ashy, oil-slicky, nearly lager-y exhibition. In this respect, it has a sort of expanding feel on the mouth, it feels like a marshmellow! I know, it’s a lot to sip on, but its after-effects feel especially amazing; just don’t underestimate the excellent post-sip experience on the palate!

O: Evil Twin is up to some sssssshhhthtufffff here… this one got to me, and, to me, proved it. What are you up to, my Evil Twin…

Keep cherishing, keep drinking, keep livin’. Thanks for reading! Check back soon.

This beer pours classic motor oil black with very little head. The aroma is complex to say the least. The laundry list I pick up include dark chocolate, soy sauce, sprouts, molasses, whiskey, cinnamon, raisins, coffee, tobacco, and I don't even know what else. The flavor carries dark chocolate first, followed by molasses, a slight vegetal and soy sauce taste, and a rather boozy finish. This beer has so much going on. A beautiful slow sipper.

Had this last night with Jeppe at the Max's Baltimore Beer Week event.

In comparison to the Even More Jesus I would say this has a tiny bit more smoke flavor while the Even is a little bit smoother and slightly more vinous.

Definitely worth seeking out.

The beer comes in a dark black color with tons of beautiful lacing. Very thick. A big brown head.

The aroma has this huge fruit aroma. Almost of musty and fermented grapes or berries, raisins. Caramel sweetness, milk chocolate.

The flavor follows with sweetness up front of candied sugar, brown sugar, caramel. Then onto roasty malt, bitter chocolate, brownies. There are tons of fruit esters that follow. Dark plums, raisins.. The finish is very clean with lots of chocolate and some coffee bitterness.

The mouthfeel is huge and luscious.

One of the best imperial stouts on the market.

An imperial stout at $14.99 and 12% ABV. Poured into a chalice.

The pour and the aroma made me salivate! OMG – Great! Well balanced across the roasted malt, ABV and the bitterness/sweetness. Almost like a chocolate milkshake albeit made with no milk and no chocolate and its beer. Hides its ABV well. A beer that changes substantially as it warms. 4.75

A – Pours a black with a reddish brown one-finger head. Slightly viscous. Great lacing. 5

S – Roasty, coffee, dark chocolate, slight sweetness, a bit of alcohol as the beer warms. 4.75

T – Roasted malt, malted chocolate, minor bitterness balanced with some sweetness, very minor notes of dark fruit and whiskey. 4.75

MF – Smooth, creamy (not velvety), medium-heavy, with a slightly dry finish, a bit of a bit in the finish as well. 5.0

Was so excited to try this, and it didn't disappoint at all. Poured sorta hard from a 16oz can (weird format for this, I thought) into a snifter. Only filled it about half way so I could give it a good swirl and also to take it in two hits over the course of a couple hours. Pours jet black, completely opaque with a finger thick (at most) of a brownish, chocolatey colored head that doesn't last too long or leave lacing really, but as it swirls in the glass, the foam sticks to the side of the glass and falls slowly showing ogmff this beer's thick and luxurious body. Smell is of sweet caramel, dark malts, burnt sugar, and ever so slightly of alcohol. Taste is a kick in the face of sweet malts, caramel, coffee, marshmallows, vanilla, and even though it's not aged, it gives a slight oak character. Loving this from the first sip. Feel is very full-bodied, thick and luxurious, coating the palate and leaving the flavor long after swallowing. Overall, damn near perfect and something I'd recommend to damn near anyone, save maybe the faint of heart.

16 oz. can Batch #003

Pours opaque pitch black with a dense creamy brown foam head. Smells like smoky dark roasted malts, some cola-like spice, dark chocolate, charred coffee, vanilla, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, dark fruits, mild booze, with earthy grass and pine. Tastes like luscious creamy dark chocolate, smoky dark roast coffee, charred toasty malts, dark fruits, vanilla, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, dark toffee, with mild pine and earthy grass. Feels medium-light bodied, creamy and viscous with moderate low carbonation. Overall a really rich, creamy and luscious, super tasty imperial stout.

This beer pours an opaque jet black with a 2 finger chocolate milkshake colored head that sticks around FOREVER. It finally recedes to a quarter inch layer across the top that stays for the duration. There are many webbed sheets of lacing as well. The smell is amazing and decadent. Rich chocolate fudge, coffee, roasted malts and a nice smokiness all blend together to form an amazing aroma. Taste is exactly the same. The sweetness from the chocolate and the smokey flavor intertwine wonderfully and the 12% abv is nonexistent. Feel is thick and viscous. It really coats the whole mouth. Overall this beer is absolutely world class. This is the best non BA stout I've ever had.

A: Pours brilliant pitch black producing an extraordinarily creamy 2” dark tan foam collar that grips the side of the glass, has some legs.
S: Chocolate, espresso, grain, dark sugars.
T: Dark chocolate, malty sweetness, dark caramel long bitter chocolate aftertastes.
F: very chewy, very fine soft carbonation, some graininess, warming
O: A well composed imperial stout that hits all the right buttons.

A roasty aroma pours out of this beer the instant it's open. A big beer that somehow even at 12% pours like engine oil and drinks smooth. Some Evil Twin beers are hype, this one is not.

Had at a tap take over on cask and draft. Cask smells more smokey and a little like bacon. Draft Is an incredible beer. Smells of the candy sugar Smoke and and wine flavor That I can't figure out. One of the best beers I tasted in a long time.

Bought a 4-pack of 16 oz. cans at Whole Foods in Arlington, VA. Can says Batch #005 09:07. Poured into a tulip glass.

Look: Pitch black with a small, medium/dark-brown head.

Smell: Heavy dark malts, booze, dark chocolate

Taste: Massively flavorful. Immediately grabs hold of the tongue and assaults it with flavor. Sweet, sour, savory, and bitter at the same time. Smokey malts, sweet chocolate. The 12% ABV is very well-hidden.

Feel: Very thick and syrupy, low carbonation, sticky residue.

Overall: Fantastic, a world-class imperial stout.

I was surprised I had not reviewed this yet as I've enjoyed several bottles.
A - Pours black with a small tan head.
S - The aroma is molasses and coffee.
T - The flavor is sweeter than most Imperial Stouts. More molasses than anything else. Not bitter at all.
M - Perfect mouth feel for an Imperial Stout. Thick and sticky. Like motor oil. Carbonation is low.
O - This is an outstanding Imperial Stout and I will buy more soon.
