3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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

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
