Brewed by:
Evil Twin Brewing
New York, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into the higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all -- it must taste rare!

I'm not sure if my bottle was bad but it tasted like blood. My brother and saved it by pouring it through coffee and vanilla beans

Pours a thin, oily black with a very faint lacing. Aroma was very off for me - there is some distant roasted malt, bitter baker's chocolate and wet oak, but there is a raw astringent smell bordering on the dreaded nail polish though it doesn't quite reach that level, but it certainly throws it off. Taste is a little better - very heavy on bitter cacao notes with some dark malt & a tad of vanilla - but still has a bit of wet cardboard / wood flavor. Maybe it was just a bad batch cause I have had the aun mas a Jesus - same recipe brewed at a different location - and it was noticeably different. Not awful but floats around mediocrity at best.

32 oz growler, six hours after filled.

Look: dark, dark, dark brown, maybe black. very little head. Looks like used motor oil when pouring
Smell: Overlay of maraschino cherry in a sea of molasses, dark chocolate, and ... coffee?
Taste: whoa, way too sweet. flavors pretty much match the aroma. Almost a liqueur.
Feel: creamy, but almost with a slight grit feel. Not really pleasant to my palate.
Overall: I honestly couldn't finish it. So sweet I was feeling sick to my stomach almost immediately (or was that the 12% alcohol?). Definitely needs to back off on the sweet and add some bitter to give it better balance.

On tap at The Gin Joint in Charleston, SC

A: Pours an opaque, jet black color. A one finger tan head tries to rise, then fizzles out in a second. No lace, and looks like ink. Dead, still, lifeless.
S: Light roast and coffee, but overwhelmingly soy sauce like in the nose. Sweet and very, very sugary.
T: Follows the nose with a sticky soy sauce flavor that overwhelms. Sticky, brown sugar and molasses. Solvent, ethanol like alcohol. Burning hot.
M/D: A full body that has almost no carbonation. Sticky, resinous, oily, and like motor oil. Very hard to drink. This is so solvent and unpleasant to drink.

Not a fan. This was harsh and not very enjoyable for me. Stay away.

Everything i hate about Imperial Chocolate Stouts shows up here. But at $5 for 16 oz can I had to buy 2. Hard but drank both ... not on the same day. Maybe the most black beer I've seen. Aroma is black chocolate, not bad but certainly not good. Taste is black. Black chocolate with way too much black licorice makes this a very harsh drink (for my palate). Too black. Did I mention this is very black? Pass.

Came in a snifter.

3.25 A: Black color. Came without a head.

3.25 S: Rich and roasty. Solid porcine smokiness. Deep molasses. A good bit charred.

2.5 T: Charred and roasty. Dense without a lot of sweetness. A bit more bitter than I prefer. Deep roasted coffee.

3.25 M: Heavy body. Dense and syrupy. Good moderate carbonation.

2.75 D: Too damn roasty and unbalanced.

This really wasn't all that good. The taste was a weird mix of oiliness, sweetness (too much), and a strange maltiness. Nose was interesting, and there was very little head, but overall I didn't even want to finish the 4th of a bottle I had while sharing it. Was expecting more.

Appearance - Pours midnight black with a chocolate colored, finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a mostly barren surface and a ring of suds around the edge of the glass. Minimal lacing; a few small spots, really.

Smell - Chocolate, sugar, dark fruit and a light roast edge.

Taste - Follows the nose. Chocolate and dark fruit are sweet enough, but then a punch of sugar comes through mid-taste to take it over the top. Copper character pops in and out. Coffee roast arrives, thankfully, near the finish to give some semblance of balance, but it isn't nearly enough, as the finish mostly lingers with residual sugary sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Full-bodied with low-to-moderate carbonation. Sticky, nigh syrupy mouthfeel with a dry finish that leaves a stickiness on the lips.

Overall - Way too sweet and sugary for my tastes. If this were coffee, it'd be 1/4 chocolate creamer and sugar. I'm more of a classic black guy. If it weren't for the bit of roastiness in the back end this thing would be a completely cloying mess. The odd metallic notes doesn't help.
