12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Jet black with a short brown head that dissipates quickly. I saw a chunk of yeast go kerplunk into my glass towards the end of the pour, so watch out!

Nose
Semi-sweet chocolate, raisin, fig, coffee, vanilla, and dark caramel.

Taste
Semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, and sherry. Medium roast coffee with light additions of cream, sugar and vanilla. Molasses, caramel, raisin, fig, and black plum. Finishes with notes of earth and cocoa nib.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, slick, oily, sticky, and warming.

Overall
Robust, rich, sweet, and decadent. A nice sipper at 11.5%.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. bottle into a Brooklyn Brewery snifter.

A: Essentially black and opaque, with low visible carbonation, and a thin tan head. This has a nice look, and coats the sides of the glass nicely.

S: Rich roasted malts, cacao nibs, some booze and vanilla – this smells almost barrel aged, but I don't see that it is on the label.

T: Tons of deep roasted malts, cacao, and some balancing bitterness (mild hoppy & more roasted), tobacco, some vanilla, and some burnt toffee near the end, with a fairly mild alcohol heat. Roasted bitterness in the hang.

M: Medium body - not as full as some of the best porters available. The hefty ABV is well-hidden, and has fairly low carbonation sensation.

O: This is a really nicely done BIG porter. Likely blurring the lines between porter and stout, or maybe crossing it entirely, but very tasty. A good offering from Evil Twin for sure.

Pours a five-finger, thick brown head that fades slowly leaving a good lace. Black color, no highlights. Medium carbonation and medium-heavy bodied. Nose is chocolate and molasses and flavor is smooth chocolate and molasses malt. Higher ABV is hidden. Decent Imp porter. $4.99 for a 12oz bottle from Julio's Liquors Westborough, MA. Bottled Feb 19, 2014.
