4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours an opaque black with a small frothy brown head that dissipates into a nice ring that leaves lace. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, cocoa and alcohol with a delicious sweetness in the scent. Taste is roasted malts, chocolate, cocoa, coffee, espresso a d a good alcohol warming on the finish with some bitterness from the roasted malts to balance the sweetness and alcohol... Great imperial stout!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 2013 bottle into a snifter like motor oil. A thick minimal head.
Aroma is roasted sweet dark chocolate.
Flavor is reminds me of a minted caramelized marshmallow dipped in dark chocolate. Slight bitterness in the finish. Delectable bitter sweet. Did I say dark chocolate??
Carbonation minimal but adequate considering the style & age.
Overall a well above average Imperial Stout.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Tomato Bistro, Manayunk. Pours a super dark black with a little white lacing. Bitter, mineraly aroma. Mouthfeel is medium and actually kind of dry. Good amount of carbonation. Taste is interesting. Dry, minty, bready.... unique for this type of beer. No taste of the 11.5% abv. Solid but not great.

Chocolate on the nose with anise and vanilla. This is awesome. Big sips taste different than small sips and they are both just really really good. Sweeter on the small sips and a little boozy on bigger sips.

Deutlich schokoladiger Antrunk mit leichten Vanillenoten. Das Bier bleibt auf diesem Level, etwas fruchtig, malzig trocken, rund. Gut! 12/12/12//12/12

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Creamy deep tan head, two fingers in depth. This beer is pitch black in color. In the aroma I’m getting dark chocolate, coffee with caramel malt undertones. Initially I get a sweetness in the taste that I wasn’t expecting. I’m getting a strong vanilla presence along with coffee, molasses, pecans or almonds along with dark chocolate notes. It is kind of reminicient of an ice cream sundae, without being coyingly sweet. Another awesome beer from EvilTwin.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber into tasting glass (although I had half the bomber). Anise prominent where otherwise there is mostly pleasant chocolate coffee smell/taste. Aroma slightly muted. This beer seems to reach parts of the tongue that other beers miss. Creamy but slightly thin, beautiful bubbly tan head. Liked it slightly better when I had it on tap recently but a fine stout.
