COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
On a pilgrimage for immortal craft beer we tripped on these heavenly drops of amazingly overwhelming aromas, a thick fudge-like body, pitch black color and obviously only made in limited amount. And then the taste....even more jesus! Produced and bottled by Evil Twin Brewing at Companyia Cervesera del Montseny SLL. Catalunya, Spain.

My new favorite non-barrel-aged imperial stout. Huge and sooo smooth. Rich layers of espresso, fudge, plumbs, smoke, beef jerkey, syrup...may as well stop there. Not only does this pack about every note I’ve ever tasted in the style, it’s incredibly smooth. Every layer transitions into the next in perfect harmony. Then there’s the silky smooth, massive, coating body with just enough drying bitterness to pull everything through. Jesus, this is good.

Pours a dark dark brown with a small beige head that leaves good lacing. Nose is of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and smoke (might be the bonfire for this one, though). Taste is of chocolate, roasted malt, coffee, licorice and some alcohol. Body is full, carbonation moderate and the alcohol is a bit hot but not 12% hot. Overall a nice big stout, a fine sipper to end your day on.

Bottle to glass. Pours a thick motor oil with a thin rim of brown head. Aroma is roasted malts, dark fruits. Flavor is sweet, dark fruits, with a nice roasted malt backbone. Thick, chewy mouthfeel. Very nice imperial stout.

Ernest (6727) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 23, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is opaque black (flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately to heavily malty (dark chocolate / fudge, roasted grain, caramel), with notes of vanilla, blackberry, alcohol. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium to full body, velvety/creamy/watery texture, lively/soft carbonation, moderately alcoholic. Figured I’d try this considering how much I liked the Moose Islay Montseny made for Nomada, and happily this is a very nice rendition. It doesn’t get all the way to "exciting", but it’s solid and surprisingly elegant for a 12% Impy stout. Quite sweet but not oppressively so, not harshly alcoholic, and the mouthfeel is quite easy-going and drinkable, absolutely not a goopy-syrupy sort of thing...in fact, I might even prefer a bit more body and a more substantial texture (it’s mostly silky but it is admittedly a bit watery as well). Clean aroma and flavor helps too. As with I Love You With My Stout, this is something I will happily drink again, but it just doesn’t quite have the nuance and depth of 4+ examples.

AirForceHops (4501) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Bottle. Pitch black color. Aroma is pretty nice, molasses, brownie batter, coffee, burnt malts.

The body is exactly what we look for in the style... Thick and full with a light creamy texture. Also shows the warming alcohol after the sip. Complex malt flavor so that I’m sure this is comparable to Even More Jesus but it’s been a long damn time since I sampled it. Rich, chewy and decadent, just want I want in my imperial stout.

portableparty (2056) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - JUL 18, 2015
12 oz. bottle. Pours oily dark brown black. Aroma is strong alcohol roasted burnt malt mellow marshmallow some coffee. Taste is all the above, but stronger, sweet dark burnt chocolate peat meaty. Palate is full and gritty warming.

Dark charcoal black, like used motor oil. Cocoa Nibs. Coffee. Super roasty. Black licorice. Hot, but in a good way, it adds to the flavor. Actually the more of this I drink, the more I think its a tad too much.

Christpuncher (1938) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 15, 2015
So similar to a bourbon county stout. Extremely smooth either strong notes of bourbon, coffee, chocolate and some smoke. Pours like motor oil with a reddish brown head. Had out of a bottle at home.

Ktwse (2798) - SWEDEN - JUL 8, 2015
Pours pitch black with a finger of deep tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, molasses, light vanilla and bourbon. Taste is creamy chocolate and vanilla sweet up front followed by a massive coffee bitter finish. Rich, creamy body with soft carbonation.

IvoR (89) - New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Lots of malt flavor, lots of hop flavor, lots of alcohol. All in a race to dominate, but neither quite succeeding. First is the maltiness manifested by chocolate and espresso flavors. Immediately after that, the bitterness of the hops takes over. This takes a second or two before the warmth of the alcohol finally shows through. The best part is the finish, a combination of all three. Marvelous.

vyvvy (4661) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 27, 2015
Pours very dark and oil with a brown / dark burnt orange head. The aroma has lots of dark chocolate, smooth roast, vanilla, cream, milk, fudge and mild coffee bitterness. It has a thick chewy body body with decent amount of semi-soft carbonation. The taste has rich lush dense chocolate, smooth roast, licorice, cinnamon and cream. The finish has more bitterness, some earthy hops, coffee and lingering harshness. Really well made imperial stout.
