4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
22oz bottle that is definitely labeled "Imperial Stout" so I don’t know why it’s in the Porter category. But anyway it kind of slipped it’s way into my glass. Thick and sticky with a finger of dark brown head, quickly faded to a small ring. Aromas are rich and extremely complex, bitter baking chocolate, roasty malts, dark fruits like figs and dates, raisins, brown sugar and molasses, almost no hops present. A little alcohol present in the smell. Taste is amazing, tons of cocoa, coffee, toffee, caramel, molasses, burnt sugar and cookie vanilla malt, all roasted and toasted in a beautiful warming finish. Glad I saved it for 12/25. Lovely mouthfeel, thick and creamy, a subtle carbonation helps lighten the heavy body. This is an excellent stout, to be savored and enjoyed.

[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.

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.
