4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: APR 14, 2016 Wonderfully dark in color with caramel, coffee, and chocolate rising from the glass. Slightly aggressive pour yielded a smattering of bubbles only and no lace left behind either. Dark fruits like figs and raisins hit the taste buds first followed quickly by a caramel, molasses sweetness. Coffee/roast join in as well as some baker?s chocolate. Moderately full bodied with the perfect amount of sweetness and bitterness blended together on the palate hiding the 11.5 abv quite nicely, plus a pleasant aftertaste as well. I?ve always found myself enjoying Evil Twin Imperial stouts and this is no exception. A bit pricey for me but well worth the try! Amazing!

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours dark as hell with no head. Aroma: super complex aroma of coffee, chocolate, dark malt (the usual ris stuff) followed by a pleasant touch of liquor and vanilla. Taste: roasted malt, coffee, chocolate but in a balanced and at the same time bold mix. I taste some marshmallow. Absolutely no sign of the 12 ABV. World-class.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bomber into a tulip: Pours greasy jet black with a small tan head. Aroma of sugar, molasses, little bit of cocoa. Taste is cloyingly sweet, glad I split it 4 ways. Nice roasted flavors, cookies, cocoa. Full body, just too sweet for my liking.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from Belmont Station
Pitch black color with brown head, compact but not persistent. The aroma is wonderful; there are dark malts and dark chocolate, coffee truffle, fresh, floral. Good body strength, with very moderate residual sweetness; it has a very good flavor of dark chocolate, hints of coffee, and a strong dry liquorice presence that brings back memories of Danish beers such as Limfjords Porter; and then a touch of chili peppers.
