4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12oz. bottle. Pours opaque black with a brown foamy head that rises slowly and stays. Clean chocolate, toasty aroma. A soft carbonation propels a heavy, but not syrupy, soft sweetness under a complex balanced and heavy malt body. The hot alcohol is very subdued. The body is solid without being sticky. This is a great sipping beer, and after savoring every sip, you come back for more. There is a long sweet, chocolate, malt finish that tapers gradually.
Too much alcohol in this stout. I was hoping for something smoother and more drinkable. Not a fan. murzyn (498) - Sosnowiec, POLAND - NOV 14, 2017
Barwa czarna, piana mała.
Aromat gorzkiej czekolady, melasy, pralin, wiśnie, suszone owoce. Raczej delikatny.
W smaku kawa, czekolada, rodzynki, śliwki, sporo nut palonych. Ciało średnie, alko wyczuwalne.
Spoko pifko. Blastomorpha (126) - - NOV 13, 2017
Pours pitch black with a very thin tan head.
Aroma is dusty, light traces of roastiness, winery notes and abundancy of liquorice.
Taste is less sweet than expected, with powerful and lasting bitterness and some alcohol. If you ever tried it, this beer reminded me of a Mikkeller Beer Geek Vanilla Shake with most of its sweetness removed.
Not a bad beer per se, but a bit of a letdown for its price. will_dill (2) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2017 does not count
What the heck. How does this have a high rating? Nothing on the Palate just light watery flatish with an alcohol finish. Yeah it has super high ABV but it is thin and has an alcohol bight. It needs more body. Pours no head and has a watery mouth feel. Sweet but cheap sweet with no backbone to stand up to. Sad. This beer is also $$$ for a four pack (at least where I am from). I would pay 9.99 for a 6 pack of this, as it isn't horrible. It is def drinkable but for the price there are TONS of better options in the imperial stout range with high ABV. Evil Twin Donk a Donk riders need to get over this. 90 (819) - BELGIUM - NOV 5, 2017
Aroma is roasted and umami, soy sauce Taste is grainy black coffee, soy sauce and a tad sweet. Chocolate, bitter and a hint of licorice . Burned chicory. Grind in palate.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2017 Darky dark pour. Thin to almost no head. Mild aroma of roasted malts, dark chocolate and bread. Taste is pretty bitter and following the nose with some alcohol peaking through. Full bodied with low carbo. Great stout, not amazingly complex but a wonderful evening sipper. Love you too!!! gripweed57 (2865) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 3, 2017
12 ounce bottle. Dense black color. Frothy tan head initially reduces to a small creamy cap. Subtle Darah malt nose. Smoky notes. Huge bittersweet roasted malt flavor. Dark chocolate, espresso, burnt sugar, resiny hops, licorice and imperial darkness. Rich and foreboding. Bittersweet chocolate finish. Warming alcohol. mviljamaa (189) - FINLAND - NOV 3, 2017
Pours with a quickly diminishing lace, but which retains as a nice "coffee cream" like lace that makes the beer look nice. Color is coffee-like almost pitch black. Strong-ish and complex aroma that has dark chocolate, fermented plum, ammonium, leather, aniseed, mint ice cream / after eight, grass soil, sweet rye bread, raisin, ... and the list continues. So again, typical of Evil Twin, the aroma is very very complex and "deep". There are nice contrasts. Palate feels nothing short of perfect being both dry and "slippery", but so that the palate feels very balanced. Taste has a very 3D quality to it. There are strong contrasts of bitter and burnt to honey-like "mouthwatering" sweetness. Two main flavors are the bitter burnt (charcoal) flavor on tongue and honey in the back of one's mouth. 85% cocoa dark chocolate overnotes. Faint pine wood taste/texture, some citrus throat lozenge. It's a very dark and slightly "medicinal" presentation of the Imperial Stout style. Not as rich and sweet as the usual, but very elegant "dark luxury sedan" like elegancy. Superb beer from Evil Twin again. sailor_one (94) - Krakow, POLAND - OCT 30, 2017
33cl bottle. Jet black, almost no head - disappears very quickly. Aroma: dark chocolate, vanilla, coffee, alcohol, butter cookies. Taste is semi-dry, just a short sweetness and then woody, burning, dry finish. Overpriced, not so good. The_Osprey (9148) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2017
October 2017 - 330ml bottle at home as 'Evil Twin I Love You With My Stout', 12%, 2014 bottling. Opaque black with a foamy brown head that leaves some light lacing. Aroma is liquorice, parma violet, some eucalyptus and perfume. Pretty interesting. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is robust, spiced liquorice stick, big rounded malts with a touch of cocoa, huge mint and pine - background ouzo and tequila, salty and boozy. Packs a punch and has no noticeable oxidation or other signs of age, thankfully. Clearly massively hopped as, despite the obvious malt sweetness, the flavour is led more by pine, mint and floral notes than by the roast. Huge beer. Enjoyable if a little rough. I don't think a few extra years in the bottle would hurt this at all. (8-4-7-4-16=3.9)
