Some of us has experienced a blackout. Maybe you hit your head hard, forgot your lines in the high school play or perhaps all the lights went out in your city. In any case a blackout can very often become a moment of lucidity – stranded and discharged from the world that’s when really can push boundaries and finally realize …….

phaleslu (8006) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2015
330 ml bottle shared by alexsdad06 - thanks again, Brad! Got cute with the name here; yeah, can’t use the original. Pours a deep opaque brown, nearly black, with a small, lasting beige head. Nice to look at. It has some black olive notes in there, with tobacco, dark chocolate, roasted malts, light soy, and some fudge sweetness. Medium-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a rich, coating mouthfeel. Dry finish. Good imperial porter.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
12 oz bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a stem glass. Pours black with a small rim of tan bubbles but no distinct head. The nose has huge notes of dark chocolate and brown sugar, along with anise, vanilla and a hint of dark fruit. The flavour is fairly sweet throughout, with big chocolate and molasses notes paired with vanilla, dark fruit and a hint of coffe. The finish is long and roasty with lots of chocolate and molasses. On the palate it is medium-full in body with a creamy texture and almost no carbonation. Overall, a great imperial porter with nice chocolate and vanilla notes. 2014-12-01

AWISLguy (1978) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 4, 2014
Bottle from Bottles and Cans. A very dark dark brown pour with a tan head Aroma has cocoa and caramel and molasses. Later down the glass, more of an espresso presence shows through. Sweet caramel, roast, chocolate, some molasses, with some earth and some anise. Medium to full bodied, with some roughness and some alcohol. Finishes in a nice blend between bitter (choc and espresso) and sweet (caramel). The bitter edges out. As ever with Evil Twin, beyond the cost per ounce, very solid, and excellent per style. 14.6
