Davros (1987) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2014
Pours black with a dark tan head. Nose shows roasted malt, coffee liqueur, soft booze, sweet caramel, dried fruit. Lovely. Similarly roasty and bold flavours. Liquorice, coffee liqueur, hot alcohol, spicy and piny hops. Aggressive finish with a big roasty and hoppy bitterness. Creamy mouthfeel, very smooth.

Brewdork (228) - Sanford, Florida, USA - MAY 24, 2014
12 oz. bottle packaged on 6/10/13 poured into shaker. Deep opaque ebony color with no real head whatsoever. Rich, roasty aroma of coffee, chocolate, tobacco and alcohol. Flavor is sweet and malty without being cloying accompanied by just the right amount of smoke. Mouthfeel is smooth and vinous. There’s definitely an alcohol presence, but not one that belies its actual ABV. If they were to call this an imperial stout, I wouldn’t question it. This is the first Evil Twin offering I’ve tried, and overall I’m very impressed.

hag14 (103) - Hafnarfjörður, ICELAND - MAY 23, 2014
Bottle. Smoky chocolate and coffee aroma. Some alchohol on the palate but not that much considering the abv. Overall: 16/20

33cl bottle from Kris Wines, London. Trappist glass. Pours a dark brown with tan coloured head, settling quickly. Aromas of yeast, alcohol, caramel, and brown sugar. Taste is sweet and malty, with perfume notes, finishing with espresso that lingers. Very good brew, highly recommended.

ciaranc (914) - Dublin, IRELAND - MAY 20, 2014
355 ml bottle from Baggot St Wines. Black pour, mocha creme head. Coffee, roast malt on the nose. Intensely rich luscious, coffee in the flavour, nice and bitter yet not over the top. Lovely mouthfeel, perfectly judged carbonation. Bitter coffee finish. Lovely.

sk75 (16) - Ballyshannon, IRELAND - MAY 17, 2014
Black as night this beauty! A small but creamy head with a little lacing..tastes heavy in coffee and caramel...you get a roast coffee after taste, with an almost heat sensation. The mouth feel is thick and oily. Overall a Great beer that hides the 11.5% well.

Pours a deep black. A lot going on with the aromas from chocolate, roasted malts, caramel and a big whack of alcohol. Fantastic complex taste to go with the aroma.
