3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: Poured with not head to speak of. Head could be forced by a vigorous swirl of the glass. This is pitch black and as I poured it the guys in the room all said "wow" because of the viscosity and the complete blackness.
Smell: Coffee and a dark chocolate with molasses. There is some toasted notes also. There is a bitter coffee ground smell, too.
Taste: This is like drinking a chocolate brownie! Coffee and sweet molasses show up and something that makes my pucker.
Mouthfeel: This is one chewy beer. I feel like I need to chew instead of just swallow when I drink this one. It coates every corner of my mouth with thickness that lingers between sips. No carbonation on this at all.
Overall: This is definitaly a beer that must be shared IMO because of how big it is. Although I did enjoy this it is one that is very bold and a HUGE beer.

[Bottle (650ml)] Pours a very dark brown with an average size semi-lasting frothy light-brown head. Lovely aroma of bread, vanilla, nuts, roasted malt, alcohol, hops, chocolate and more. Malty and chocolaty flavour along with brown sugar, light hops, vanilla and some alcohol. Slightly syrupy mouthfeel. Medium bodied. I quite liked this.

Toasty roasted malts and dark chocolate with sweet raisin bread aromas. Taste is the same as smell: toast, dark cocoa, raisin, some toasted coconut in the finish.

Aroma is tons of roasted malt, chocolate, nice. Appearance is black, tan head. Taste is somewhat mild, sweet, yet finishes robust. Characteristics of milk involved as well. Mouthfeel is thick and lovely, great carbonation. Overall, I do like this.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) Black colour with dense brown head. Malty, roasted nose with strong black coffee, chocolate, almonds, chocolate-chip cookies and a touch of vanilla. Malty, roasted taste with notes of espresso, almonds, cookies, vanilla, liquorice and finish with a slight sweetness, a balanced coffee bitterness and a slight alcohol glow. Full body, with a certain sweetness. Despite its strength and powerful flavours, it’s in excellent balance and deceptively drinkable. Lovely beer!

Really dark and viscous beer with mocha color head. Aroma reminds me cookies and vanilla. Taste is more bitter with coffee notes. Body is smooth and heavy and alcohol is really well hidden. Easy drinking and tasty imperial stout.

From notes on 7/2/15.
Finally pulled the trigger and bought this. Haven’t really been a fan of Evil Twin yet. This beer was good, but sort of a let down too. Poured kind of thin, with a nice coffee aroma. Very sweet tasting, but lacking in the mouthfeel. The sweetness was more reminiscent of a mocha than that of coffee.
