3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle shared with (and courtasy of) the brewers of Bådin. Pours a black colour with a small, light brown head. Aroma of coffee, dark chocolate, lactose, some meat and nice roasted malt in the end. The flavour has more roasted malt and is pretty nice. Slick and rich mouth feel, and the bitterness is light. A well-balanced IS with a wonderful roastedness.

Harsh burnt aroma. Rough. Battery acid and coal. Maybe an off bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours with a black pour and a deep brown head that fades. Aromas are of iodine, bakers chocolate, deep roast, fudge, dark fruit, licorice, dry, nutty, ashy. Peanut shells. Flavors are dry, quite bitter, astringent, lightly smokey, metallic, campfire. Quite an acrid and heavy handed roast malt character. Quite boozy. Some dark fruit. Dry peanut shells. Somewhat fizzy with medium viscosity. Not my style of imperial stout.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Lots of cacao, chocolate, dried brown fruits (prune, date, fig), coffee and a rich, creamy body that eases into a very dry (but not quite austere finish.
Another fine Evil Twin offering.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Black beer with delicate small cinnamon colored head. Scent has lots of roasted malts, dark chocolate and coffee. Sweet flavor, cyrup mixed with roasted coffee flavors. Pretty traditional IS, lacks something. Full and powerful texture.
