Beergeek23322 (2588) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2013
February 2012. An excellent stout that is balanced and compled. The high alcohol content does not overwhelm. A bit lighter body than other stouts.

One of the lighter imperials that I’ve tried from Evil Twin. Large head, pours dark. Coffee flavor is there but not pronounced. An easy sipper.

burg326 (4229) - Florida, USA - MAR 15, 2013
12 ounce bottle pours a black color with aromas of chocolate, roast, coffee, a touch of vanilla, and some earth. Flavors are the same with big chocolate, coco, and roast, followed by some earthy flavors. A solid stout overall.

Draft at BP Dupont Circle. Pitch black. Big beige head. Big chocolate roasty cocoa tones. Vanilla tinged. Very smooth, expert execution. Right on.

RichTheVillan (3925) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; this beer should be better gave it an average score overwhelming taste of vinegar might be a bad batch quality control issue had to drain pour.

Japalo (1328) - DENMARK - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle@home. Black. Small to no head. Nutty roasted coffe aromas. Bitter sweet. Strong body but still fresh. A little handicap by a new cool.

bleeng (1554) - Houston nowhere near Beersel, Texas, USA - FEB 3, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours pitch black with a small tan head. Big burnt roasty nose. Taste is the same with a bit of sweetness and an alcohol presence. Nice rich body. This is a big beer with a huge flavor profile.

Svesse (6715) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 1, 2013
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 (Draught at Fermentoren, Copenhagen, 25 Jan 2013) Black colour with brief, brown head. Malty, roasted nose with dark chocolate, cacao, coffee and liquorice. Malty, roasted taste with notes of dark chocolate, cacao, espresso, vanilla and a full-flavoured finish with a certain sweetness and a generous roasted bitterness. Full body, with some sweetness. Quite well balanced and very tasty. Very nice. Rerate: (Bottle, 30 June 2013) Black colour with huge, frothy, pale brown head. Malty, roasted nose with notes of dark chocolate, strong sweet espresso, liquorice, soy sauce, molasses and caramel. Malty, roasted taste with strong black coffee, cocoa, dark chocolate, liquorice, soy sauce, hints of bourbon, burnt sugar (or molasses) and a generous coffee bitterness in the finish. A certain alcohol glow coming through. Full body, quite sweet. Quite powerful and very nice. Same figures as in original rating.

BrianWillum (216) - København S., DENMARK - FEB 1, 2013
The great aroma of this beer includes honey, nuts and roasted malt. Taste is a great balance between sweet and bitter with the smokedness as the central element. Beer is black with a thick head, which disappears quite fast, though.

77ships (4693) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JAN 31, 2013
Thx! to Antoine. Tasting glass draft @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Evil Twin’s oddly named RIS. Black with a mocha film head. Bitter roast, roasted coffee beans blended with some sweetness underneath, sweet chocolate & mocha. Taste is noticeable bitter roast, standard, coffee grounds going over into a mocha, coffee & some milk chocolate sweetness going behind it, almost touch of cream in the back, some caramel. Medium, touch creamy body. Technical proficient, not shockingly different but does get the job done :)
