fidelis83 (2270) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Oily black pour with a 3 finger, dense, creamy, oily mocha brown head. Aroma is huge on roasted nuts, chocolate, mild coffee, earthy wood, smoke, roast, char, dark caramel and just a hint of herbal, floral hops. The fist sip starts of with tons of sweet milk chocolate, turning darker as it goes, lots of roasted nuts, dark coffee, dark caramel then the lightly bitter roast, char and burnt sugar kick in followed by earthiness. Finishes with cocoa and some grassy, floral, pine and herbal hop notes. Heavy body with a creamy to chewy entry, light, blanketing and slightly sharp carbonation, nice alcohol warmth without being overly boozy and a still creamy and chewy, but slightly char-dry finish. Really good stuff, probably something I will try again.

m.mahu (37) - Iasi, ROMANIA - SEP 16, 2016
Bottle at Beer Zone Iasi, Ro. Pours pitch black, oily. Medium, dark head. Smells of smoke, plums, fresh green walnuts, a bit of alcohol. Deep coffee nose and taste, dark spices. Moderate, lingering bitterness. A bit of sweet taste at end. Great Imperial Stout . Highly recommended.

chinchill (4269) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 14, 2016
12 oz bottle into a Belgian snifter. This is a mediocre looking RIS with a mediocre aroma. The flavor and smooth mouthfeel are, however, well above mediocre. There’s a sweet, boozy aroma from the near black body that’s unimpaired by a head, there being only a ring moments after the pour. The flavor though, is rich, moderately complex and well balanced. Partially hidden high ABV.

Black. Roasted barley, soy and chocolate aroma and flavour. Sweet, full taste with a bitter finish. Hides the abv well. Full body. Overall, a very good imperial stout. Not as cloying as some of Evil Twin’s other beers.

Calisky (2492) - ALSACE, FRANCE - AUG 27, 2016
Couleur noire, légère mousse beige. Nez malté, chocolat, cremeux. Gout de chocolat, chocolat noir, malt grillé, café, cremeux, note fruits noirs. Corps super onctueux en bouche. Aucun arome ne prend le dessus, tout est bien balancé. Fin café, grillée et note de reglisse bien longue et intense. Une petite bombe
