durhambeer (2500) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bomber from Samís Quik Shop in Durham. Pours midnight black with a small light brown head which nearly disappeared but always created swirly patterns. Nose and taste are huge everything--nuts, soy, chocolate, dark fruits, some sweet coffee hints, and a decent amount of hops fighting their way through. Palate is full and rich. Glad I shelled out the $12.99.

AWISLguy (2275) - Wisconsin, USA - MAY 25, 2016
650ml bottle from bananbi11, served at cellar temperature. Thanks! Black pour with little head. Aroma has sweet caramel, licorice. Some booze. Taste is caramelly, with light licorice, some cocoa and some alcohol. The body got smokier and smokier down through the glass. Medium to full bodied. Finished sweeter than bittersweet. Had high hopes so this one was a bit disappointing. 13.8

Pailhead (6273) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - MAY 6, 2016
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate roasted malt, chocolate, smoke, molasses, light espresso, and anise. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and some faint orange highlights around the outer edges of the glass. It has a one finger tan head that fades a thin film outlined by a thick ring. There is some sporadic webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate dark chocolate. There are some dark fruits/plum in the middle. The finish has moderate roasted malt, lighter smoke, espresso, and anise. Itís medium-full bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat slick mouthfeel.

jercraigs (9253) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2016
2015-04-15. Black body modest tan-brown head. Aroma of roast dark malt and a light herbal quality. 7++ Flavour is nice, dark malt is rich but not overbearing. Nutty toasty notes, moderate alcohol. Hint of mint/herbal notes. 7+ Medium to full bodied palate, carbonation. Okay but not quite what I was hoping for. 7/3/7/4/15 On tap at Blue Monk, Buffalo.

Cybercat (4738) - Georgia, USA - APR 17, 2016
Pours deep sable just a skeezix above jet black with a thick, rather fine-bubbled, persistent dark chocolate-tan head. Iím a stoutie, and this is nigh perfection for me! Aroma delivers nose-filling roast malt, chocolate, molasses, coffee, and subtle caramel notes. Flavor presents sinfully rich chocolate, molasses, toffee, roast malt, coffee and caramel. Mouthfeel features firm, viscous body and some good fizz. Get growliní!

bluejacket74 (1742) - Reynoldsburg, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2016
22 ounce bottle, "date filled" on label is 2/17/16. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a half inch tan head that stayed around for a really long time. Thereís a decent amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like burnt/charred malt, chocolate, coffee, dark fruit and molasses. Taste is similar to the aroma, but thereís also some licorice and earthiness noticeable. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, itís slick and creamy with moderate carbonation. I think itís a good imperial stout, I liked it. However itís pricey at $15.99 a bomber.

Bule (1680) - California, USA - APR 14, 2016
22oz bottle pours a thick black color with a bit of head. Loads of hops that overpower the rest of the beer a little. Strong bitterness lingers.

trapped (2015) - New York, TURKEY - MAR 18, 2016
Draught @ Milk and Hops. Inky black with small, tan creamy head, faint caramel aroma, medium carbonation, sweetish sour cherry mocha taste, alcohol undertones, thick and smooth body, medium mocha finish with alcohol aftertaste. Very satisfying and robust.

jrob21 (3333) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Sample at first sunday. This has developed a deep smokiness to it. Lots of roasted malt and a bit of cocoa gritty texture. Dominant smoke though but it is light if that is your thing.

chinchill (3879) - South Carolina, USA - JAN 3, 2016
large shared 2012 bottle. Pours thick and dark with a decent head. Aroma - excellent and moderately strong. The dark roasted grains are not as pronounced as they are upon tasting, but the alcohol and dark fruit notes are more evident. Flavor: Rich and moderately complex, with strong notes of very dark roasted malts. Slightly more sweet than bitter until the aftertaste. Hint of licorice. Well hidden ABV! Overall: one of the best Evil Twin beers Iíve had.
