Saved for Christmas - Pours from the bottle a dark brown with a reddish brown finger of head that leaves after a couple minutes. Big aroma of cocoa, roasted malts, dark fruit and coffee. The taste follows the aroma closely, but the smokiness of the malt is more prominent. The booze is hidden so well. Creamy, thick, chewy mouth. This is so well put together; complex without anything being overpowering. Excellent stout.

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.

Shared this bottle with ole Hank on cold ass December afternoon in Northern Oklahoma. I let this sit in the cellar for several months so it would be nice and ready for Winter.

Pours that lusty overused motor oil black with a single finger of dark chestnut foam. Lacing was scant for such a big stout. Love the aromas - dark chocolate, burnt toasted marshmellow, vanilla bean, sweetened coffee, and booze. Flavors are so sweet. Almost too much sweetness amplifying the chocolate, vanilla, toffee, dark toast, and simmering brown sugar confections. Full bodied silky smooth feel is heavenly. This was not a cheap beer, but I should have taken two of them home anyway. Won't hesitate to purchase this again.

Served from a tap. This opaque liquid has a sweet, chocolaty, roasty aroma. Taste is superb, deep and complex. A near perfect balance of roasted malt, sweet lactose, bitter chocolate, and coffee. The mouthfeel combines well with the other attributes. Smooth and silky. Overall, this is a very well-crafted beer, and a nice treat.

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.

Bottle shared with a friend. I’m not lying when I say this: We played beer pong with this beer at a Halloween party. Yes, that’s right. The beer pours a black with a toffee colored head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, and roasted malts. Taste of milk chocolate, coffee, and dark roasted malts. Very delicious. I don’t recommend playing beer pong with it.

look: Looks like a imp stout ought to. Very dark, nearly opaque. Some deep ruby highlights when held to light. Thick dark mocha head that leaves some messy lacing.
smell: Rich, chocolate, coffee fudge. Decadent and smoky.
taste: Rich decadent coffee, dark fruit, and cream with a smoky finish. Damn.
overall: An extraordinary imp stout in a time of extraordinary imp stouts. Well done.

A: Inky, darkest brown body; mocha head that is retained throughout drinking.

S: Dark chocolate; slight soy

T: Dark, dark chocolate, slight coffee mid taste; Not really picking up soy in the taste, but pick up some in the after taste

MF: full bodied and honestly a chore to drink a bomber by one's self

O: I think I drank this too soon; would like to see the dark chocolate and tannin-like feel subside a tad; maybe it was just too warm out today; either way a solid brew and I would love to have this during a holiday

Appearance: Pitch black, pretty much no head.

Aroma: Booze, semi sweet chocolate and mild roast.

Flavor:More chocolate, light roast and a touch of soy sauce.

Mouthfeel: Medium chewy, booze seems to thin it out a bit.

Overall: Great brew, similar to "love you stout", though I prefer the later.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a huge dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of black chocolate with light coffee notes and some residuals sugars is well balanced and extremely enjoyable. Taste is an incredibly well-balanced mix between some black chocolates notes with light fudge notes also noticeable with some light roasted coffee notes that is offset by some residual sugar notes. Body is full with creamy and oily like consistency with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. A very enjoyable treat.

Even more jesus (12 abv 4, 8, 9, 5, 18)

Poured from bottle into a snifter

Appearance – The beer pours a pitch black color with a one finger head of tan colored foam. The head fades over a slow amount of time leaving a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is massive of a coffee and caramelized sugar smell with a very strong showing of chocolate and vanilla giving an overall rather nice mocha like smell. Along with these aromas comes smells of a good deal of roasted malt and some aromas of a more crème like smell, producing a rich and tasty smelling sweet mocha espresso smell.

Taste – The taste starts out strong with sweet chocolate and coffee flavor infused with a good deal of caramel sweetness. As the flavors advance creamy tastes come to the tongue with flavors of crème and vanilla both entering the taste profile. Along with these comes even more espresso with a strong showing of some candied sugar and a bit of a more molasses and a bit more burnt sugar/caramel taste. Some very light dark fruit flavors of plum and raisin peek their way into the taste, but in comparison to the other flavors, these are super light. In the end the mix of very light booze, chocolate, sugars and coffee ends up leaving a delicious and rich coffee infused chocolate cake flavor to linger on the tongue. Oh so satisfying!!

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is super thick and creamy with a carbonation level that is on the lower side. The super thick body is fantastic for all the very roasted and dark as well as sweet flavors of the brew and mixed with the lighter carbonation create a thick and mouthcoating feel that baths the tongue in all the glorious and rich flavors of the beer.

Overall - This is one damn fine and rich imperial stout with tons of chocolate cake and coffee like flavors which coupled with the big rich flavors of the brew make for a very nice sipping stout.

Shared at a 10K review beer tasting; drank from a Hill Farmstead stemmed snifter.
Thanks to rejtable (RB) for the bottle!

Pours deep and black, with a nice short mocha head and loads of lacing. I found the nose to be the best part of this beer, big dark roasted malts, dark chocolate and cocoa nibs, pruney fruits, coffee and lots of hot alcohol. On the palate, it's still quite nice, again, roasted malts, espresso, molasses. Big in the mouth with just enough carb. Tasty!

Served in a snifter glass.

Appearance: Thick midnight black, resembling used motor oil with a medium at best carbonation. Somewhat thick head rising to over a finger's length coming off a dark tan.

Smell: Oh my god so potent, like sweet coffee....you smell roasted sugar as well.

Taste: Complex, bitter but not hoppy. You feel the cocoa espresso feel coming off the brew like as if it were to be your perfect dinner dessert. Dark chocolate undertone with a a slight pinch of caramel you have yourself a hit.

Mouth: Medium carbonation and after taste whether you like it or not sticks likes gray on cement.
Overall: Wow, absolutely mind blowing and can absolutely put this in my top ten stouts. I could wish for a little more molasses but the coffee more than makes up for it. You see it, grab it and try it....for any stout fan it will definitely not disappoint.

This beer had a nice dark brown head that didn't go away instantly. The smell was rich but the flavors were insane. I felt I kept getting different flavors with this one. The first sip was like a sugar bomb but it mellowed out after a few sips. I got more chocolate dark fruit towards the middle and back of the mouth with a slight hint of coffee. However as the beer warmed up the bitterness of the coffee was overpowering. The mouth was was a very velvety slick feel. I had a 22 oz and I couldn't finish it. Overall good beer but not great.

The beer pours a blackish brown color with very good head retention and lacing. The head on this beer is rich, thick and dark... this beer looks impressive. On the nose, I get milk chocolate, malt balls, vanilla, and a hint of coffee. The flavor profile replicates the noes pretty closely in this fairly sweet beer, and I'm impressed by how well the alcohol is integrated into the flavor profile. Drinkability is impressive, as the alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile. You can tell it's up there, and a little bit goes a long way, but this is one delicious beer.

Very, very impressive, especially at the $16 price point (at least that's what we're paying here Eugene.

I poured this into a stemless wine goblet from a bomber. Dark black, opaque liquid filled the glass with a half a finger of quickly disappearing head that left a ring around the edge. In the nose I smelled molasses and bacon which followed on the tongue. A truly lovely combination that tripped over my tongue like silk as the alcohol warmed my mouth and belly. Oh, my this is good stuff. A truly superior imperial stout.

Booze dominant in aroma, caramel, vanilla, with roast, smoky, with some soy. Flavor is chocolatey, boozy, with dark cherry fruitiness, and a smoky finish.

Poured a black body with minimal head and lace.
I like my darker beers (porters and stouts) to have sweetness thanks to a sweet tooth of mine and this doesn't disappoint in the aroma as there is a chocolatey/toffeeish aroma and some roasted coffee malts although more sweet.
Beer is real smooth for a dark, heavy beer and also real sweet as the chocolate malts (and little bits of toffee/dark fruit) are the dominant taste profile as the balance is kept from roasted coffee malts but they are in the background.
Beer is not overly sweet, I should clarify, but has enough sweetness to please a "sweet beer" fan like me but also enough of a dry, coffee edge that most people will want to have this beer even if they don't like sweeter stouts/porters.

gift from a customer, have no idea where it came from.
sublime, subtle, smooth, deceptive.
nice to see a well done imp stout . . . like yin, only better.
smell is slight, sweet, not strong.
taste is scary smooth for this abv. only thing keeping one from having way too much is it is rich, almost dessert-like.
feel is silky, smooth, hint of heat lingers after it's gone.

22oz bottle poured into a snifter.

A: As black as black gets. Hard pour rouses two fingers of dark brown head. Great retention. Lacing coats the glass in a thin sheet that slowly slides back down into the beer, leaving only thin jagged rings.

S: Burnt sugar, dark caramel, burnt marshmallows, confectioners sugar, chocolate syrup, touch of leather. Brandy-like esters. Char. By the smell of it this will be a huge,sweet, and viscous beer.

T: Burnt sugar, char, chocolate sauce, brownie batter, burnt marshmallows. Carob and unsweetened cocoa. Irish coffee. Brown sugar. Tootsie rolls. Hints of charcoal and ash. Subtle brandy and port wine. Considering the overall sweetness of the beer, it's actually surprising that it manages to dry a bit into the finish. Chocolate truffles, chocolate sauce, and nutty roast on the finish.

M: Thick and creamy with a slight viscous feel. Silky and gliding. Weight presses down gently, and not with any heft or sense of sludge. Very lithe in the mouth for such a big beer. Slight soothing warmth.

O: Goddamn. Evil Twin has really perfected the art of making huge beers that just defy logic and gravity. Sweet but never cloying, big and rich in body but never heavy or sludgey, 12% abv but with no overt potency or heat. Too easy to drink for its massive size, and it sneaks up on you quickly. I think some sugar additions must've helped this out. A very controlled beer overall, and too easy to drink.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 4

Pours a dark brown; ochre head, foamy bubbles but nice brute density to it. Lace clings helplessly. Looks good.

Smells pretty strong. Syrupy notes but lots of smoke, espresso, touch of rosewater and tobacco as well. Impressive, not instantly lovely though.

Taste is quite malty, really. Caramel toffee with burnt sugar, praline, developing more roasty notes towards the back, but also a touch of plum and lychee, giving notable sweetness.

Full body, quite syrupy. Gets a big edge towards the back where it verges on injuriously sharp.

Yeah, caramelly and stouty; impressive but also would make a fine dessert pairing.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, no bottle dating. Pours super dense pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark brown head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, roasted malt, fudge, dark bread, raisin, prune, licorice, tobacco, smoke, light char, and smoke/roasted earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of deep and intense dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy notes; with great strength. Taste of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, roasted malt, dark bread, raisin, prune, licorice, tobacco, smoke, light char, and smoke/roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roasted bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, coffee, molasses, fudge, roast, dark bread, raisin, prune, licorice, tobacco, smoke, light char, and roast/smoke earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity and intense robustness of dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and extremely full bodied; with a very thick, creamy, slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is incredible. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is a world class imperial stout. All around insane complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt and fruity/earthy flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the big ABV. An absolutely amazing offering.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Pours jet black with the consistency of motor oil. Half a finger of menacing dark brown head is produced on the pour. Above average active carbonation, especially for the style.

Smell: A lactose sugary sweetness jumps out right away. Dark heavily roasted malts and bitter dark chocolate hit first on the body. Espresso like coffee notes mesh well with heavily roasted malts and lactose sweetness. Some grassy/mossy hop notes are picked up on the back end.

Taste: Touches of lactose and sugar hit the palate first, which quickly come into contrast with heavily roasted malts. Those two battle it out on the front with the sweetness winning out and carrying into the body with accents of vanilla, oak, milk chocolate, and mossy hops. Those roasted malt poke their head through a touch on the finish with accents of tobacco, bark, dirt, and raisins. The finish is surprisingly easy on the palate, milk chocolate and coffee grounds providing a interesting combination of sweet and dry.

Mouthfeel: Decadent silky texture makes this one a joy to sip on for a long time. Combative contrasting textures come together to create an excellent, palate submerging experience.

Overall: A well executed brew by Evil Twin. I guess I should give the execution props to Westbrook but whatever. Rich and the definition of full bodied, this brew is deep and multilayered. There are areas the sweetness comes off a touch artificial and too forward but overall this is a wonderful brew.

Produced and bottled for Evil Twin Brewing at Westbrook Brewing Co. No date on the bottle. Pours a viscous deep, dark black with a somewhat cascading mocha colored two fingered head that settles to a thick cap. Some lacing is left down the glass.

Has the customary Evil Twin stout malt profile. I describe it as European stout aroma. Smells sweet with notes of chocolate, dark fruit, some Belgian candi sugar qualities, and coffee grounds. No sign of alcohol.

Big bold flavors. Some burnt and smoky qualities. Roasted malt with notes of chocolate, coffee, tobacco, dark fruit, earth, and wood. Bitterness comes from the roasted malt but this is one sweet stout. A little bit of alcohol heat and flavor in the finish.

Thick and full bodied. Feels like cream on the palate how it coats the taste buds. Chewy. There is life in the body but just enough carbonation to keep things from languishing on the palate. Perfect big stout body.

A lot to take in with this beer. Too sweet for me and I do not really like the Belgian qualities in my stouts. Does possess some outstanding qualities though.

The beer is near black and viscous with an inch of thick, beige head. The aroma brings bitter, dark, and milk chocolates, roast, vanilla, coffee beans, espresso grounds. Thick, palate coating. Rich and lovely. A delightful stout to sip and savor. Full bodied and smooth on the palate, finishing with a gentle warming heat and some bitter chocolate notes. Very nicely done.
