3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep chocolatey aroma. Black in color with a solid tan head. Cocoa and an alcohol strength...arguably too strong? Not to me! A great stout!

Bottle that I picked up from Beer Merchants consumed 27.12.10 Pours black with a rim of light beige bubbles. Soft and creamy at first with a touch of vegtable in the mouth, some custard (vanilla maybe?) and roast coffee. I think that I can taste the vanilla beans now, good beer, really good beer, the Evil Twin did good! A7 A4 T8 P4 Ov16 3.5

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2010 Bottled 50cl. Very impressive aroma which is reminiscent of vanilla, roasted malt, coffee and great chocolate. Full bodied. Complex and extremely delicious. Dangerously drinkable. I didn’t take any notes but this is surely a fantastic beer and deserves the score.

Bottle… This beer rocks!… Pours pitch black with a dark brown head. The nose offers dark chocolate, vanilla, pouch tobacco and espresso with a mild nuance of blackstrap molasses. Full-bodied with a velvety mouthfeel interwoven with prickly carbonation. The flavor is of deeply roasted malt bitterness bordered by decadent, swee, chocolate crème and sticky vanilla beans. Bittersweet chocolate and vanilla finish. Thanks to Plovmand for shipping me this bottle of world class imperial stout!

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
50 cl. bottle. Humongous dark brown head that really lasted. Pitch black color. Excellent curtain left in the glass. Epic aroma of vanilla roasted malt, dark chocolate, light dark fruity and light liquorish notes. Over the palate came again heavy roasted malt, dark chocolate, English liquorish. Strong hoppy notes with subtle sweet dried fruity and vanilla notes. Full bodied with a soft carbonation and somewhat thick texture. Heavy bitter with good counter sweetness especially in the finish. Lingering sticky heavy bitter roasted malty finish with a sweet touch and an alcoholic pouch at the very end.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Folkungagatan, Stockholm. Black as night, rich firm beige head. Aroma of vanilla, cream and strawberries. Mid sweet with almost shockingly creamy mouthfeel. Feels so deceivingly mild that it’s unimaginable that it’s over 10%. A slow onvreeping flavour of vanilla, red berries, roastiness lies only as a backdrop. Light grainy bitterness. Very driankble and pleasant, an exciting new type of beer. After the first sense of awe I however come to realize that after the initial sensation there is not so much more to discover.

Bottle: Thanks to Jeppe:
Vast 2 finger brown foamy head that disappears slow.
Beautiful black colored beer.
Smell coffee, coffee beans, toasted malts, chocolate, wood, fish, hint of vanilla, dark spices and a hint of smoke.
Taste dark chocolate, hint of dark coffee, bitter, hints of vanilla and smoke.
Very light ashy (positive). Soft and well balanced. Nice and pretty long bitter dark coffee aftertaste with a hint of vanilla and grass.
Not as a full body as other impy’s, but still a good body (not even close to being watery)!
Low Carbo, silky mouthfeel. Interesting brew, looking forward to taste other beers from the Evil Twin!
