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.

Bottle. Thicker dark tan head, and the pour is absolutely like motor oil...thick dark and sludgy nearing on black. Massive cocoa and plums at first in the aroma, slight milkshake sweetness in the are aroma. Plummy, figgy, chocolate and some espresso comes in with the finish. Leans a bit sweet but the cocoa notes are still nice in the flavor. Thick and lush body and very viscous, one of the heavier beers I’ve come across in a while.

onceblind (5692) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Inky black pour with a thin fading tan head. Rich aroma of black roasted malt, deep fudge, booze, caramel, and chocolate roast. MmmMmm. Rich boozy and roasty black malt flavor that slowly calms into chocolate, bittersweet cocoa, caramel, coffee, fudge, and finishes boozy and semisweet with just a little bit of acridity tasting of black malt tones.

Bottle. Wonderful roasted malt aroma with chocolate and molasses notes. Pours inky black with a thin brown head with decent retention and excellent lacing. Starts with rich roasted malt flavors with subtle molasses. Full bodied with a viscous mouthfeel. Finishes very smooth with sweet chocolate and more molasses. Excellent imperial stout.

Pitch black with a nice dark roasted head. Sweet and roasted aroma with fudgy notes of coffee, chocolate, and dried fruit. Taste is dominated by chocolate, coffee, some liqorice, sugar, booze and a thick nearly cakey feel.

Tmoney99 (12042) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Bottle. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with excellent leg lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted dark chocolate, soft coffee and alcohol aroma. Heavy dark toasted chocolate malt flavor with a heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a dry smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.
