Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

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!

It looks great (very dark nice lacing) and has a strong nose. Alcohol is prominent, even in the nose. Taste is grainy. The mouthfeel is sticky and a little prickly, could be much smoother. There is a lingering sweet and bitter flavor of unfermented wort. This beer isn't "finished" it could had been a better 14%er if the yeast could had done their job, even at the expense of more alcohol in the flavor and nose. It's an impressive beer for its size, but not really that great for what beer can be. There are slews of 12%ers that trump this effort. Average in its category.

This beer drinking community seem increasingly amateur the longer I drink. Laughable that this is considered "world class".

1 Pint can from Noble Grains NYC on the UES
Pitch black with a solid tan head that dissipates to a thick ring along the rim, smell is sweet and boozy with a hint of bitter chocolate, taste is sweet burnt caramel up front followed by warming booze and very bitter chocolate that lingers on the tongue, this beer is full bodied, well carbonated, and finishes sticky. A boozy and bitter no f***ing around stout from Evil Twin.

Dark, rich, chocolaty and roasty.
Pitch black pour.
Bittersweet chocolate and roasty malts coffee and savory beef jerky. Good hop balance too.
Oh yeah, this is even more Jesus.

Pours jet black with and an medium sized tan head

Smells of roasted malts, coffee, and chocolate. Hints of molasses as well.

Taste follows the nose with a perfect level of sweetness.

Mouthfeel- The best part of the beer. Thick and creamy. The creamiest beer I have ever had. This is a perfect cold weather beer. I will revisit it in the fall and winter.

Evil Twin is awesome and they have made an awesome stout. One of the best.

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.

Pours jet black, very dark brown. Khaki colored head with great sticky retention.

The most dominate smell I get in the nose is leather and dark fruit. The chocolate and coffee is more in the background to me. Almost getting an interesting beef jerky scent, with roasted malts to compliment it.

Bitter chocolate initially with the taste and toffee. sweet dark fruit in the middle. Getting some cherries, plums and figs that compliment the smoky booziness in the back end.

Mouthfeel is velvety, not much carbonation. Oily and moderately thick.
