Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!

alexsdad06 (6307) - Ohio, USA - NOV 13, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Bottled. Pours a viscous black color with a medium plus sized reddish tan head that lasts with very spotty lacing. The aroma is big roasted malts, chocolate fudge, dark fruits, coffee, molasses with some alcohol at the edges. The flavor is big roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, molasses, dark fruits (cherry , blueberry, raisin) and some alcohol. Considering the 12% abv, this is pretty smooth and drinkable. Full bodied creamy mouth feel. Another excellent Imperial stout from Evil Twin.

Bottle to oversized snifter. Looks good; pitch black with mocha lacing. Smells of semi-sweet chocolate and malt. Tastes good; like it smells, only more enriched. Good on the palate too with nice viscosity. Nice.

From bottle. Great scent. Good appearance, but the head doesn’t seem as thick and dark as I’d want it to be. The mouthfeel is similarly light. The name of this beer is spectacular, but the flavors aren’t as complex as I’d like. It’s a bit heavy on the smoke/bitter end.

Bottle. Jet black oily pour - quite viscous. Reddish brown head. Aroma and taste were roasty coffee, dark chocolate, some booze, and a hint of dark fruit. Full dense palate. Awesome beer!
