4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Yep. This is top notch. Had to break the bank after reading some of these reviews. Motor oil black with a decent dark brown head. Pretty indeed. Huge roasty aroma full of chocolate, licorice, molasses, coffee and vanilla. Long roasty bittersweet finish. Lots of roast, mocha, vanilla and caramel. Big viscous mouthfeel, oily and slick with creamy carbonation. Delivered on all accounts. Big but not overly sweet, balanced and complex.

Catch up rating from Saturday’s RIS bottle share. As it turned to Sunday morning, we all turned to Jesus, even more Jesus. Not much else to add to this one, a top notch RIS, thick, chewy body, tons of chocolate notes, woody roast grains, and a pleasant warmth in the chest. All spells a superlative drink. Cheers!

3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle from Windsor Hy-Vee, in a Sam Smith pint glass. Mouth-watering aromas of semi-sweet chocolate, toffee, caramel, brown sugar, maple syrup and raisins. Pours a distinctively opaque oily black with a finger of milky black head that dissipates to a thin layer of bubbles in a couple of minutes, with a ribbon of foamy bubbles clinging to the wall of the glass in an attractive silky ripple pattern. Roast coffee and raisins up front followed by a rich chocolatey sweetness with a long pleasantly roasty finish that flirts with bourbon barrel oaky woodiness at the very end. Full-bodied, a little weighty and light on carbonation, possibly due to bottle age. Sweet, mouthcoating and mildly coffee astringent. Another respectable imperial stout from Evil Twin that embraces the roasty character of dark beer without allowing it to overpower the way so many do. Really like to try this one on tap or newly bottled to see if that offers a little more carbonation to manage the weight of the beer a little better. Still not a bad beer by any measure. Skal!
