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

Appearance: I noticed some leakage from the cap when I unpacked this beer yesterday and when it poured out flat I was not surprised; I am just going to rate it a "4" in this category and presume it would have poured with the typical mocha head on the pitch black liquid

Smell: Dark chocolate, mocha, licorice and prune

Taste: Dark chocolate and prune, up front, with the licorice and mocha elements building in the middle; fudge and black bread tones, after the swallow, with some coffee in the finish

Mouthfeel: Again, I am going to give this a "4.25" as I presume that the full body would have been matched by some carbonation rather than the flatness I encountered

Overall: A really nice Imperial Porter (as distinct, of course, from an Imperial Stout); nice range of flavors

This is outstanding. I am starting to appreciate mouth feel and smell now. I used to be a taste only matters guy. I get it now. This feel and tastes great. At 11.5% ABV you don't know it. If you are debating that $15 tag for a 4 pack you have to trust me. Get this. This is in my top 10 and possibly top 5. I am also pretty sure that this is the top rated beer among Evil Twins readily available brews.

11/28/12 On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Part of a flight of some serious stuff. Porter? Stout? Somebody help me out! Thinkin' raisins, prunes, figs & chocolate without hardly any sugars. Not bitter, mind, but redolent none the less. Not exactly refreshing but not unpleasant either. In a word 'serious'. Welcome to the club.
