Pours opaque into the glass, black with mahogany fringes. The initial head diminishes to nothing of which to speak. The nose is gorgeous, of bourbon, maple, caramel, burnt toffee, leather and wood. Flavors are of sweet maple syrup, bourbon, toasted biscotti, vanilla, burnt toffee pieces, caramel, mixed chocolates, lightly roasted nuts, cocoa, lactose notes, coffee, dark esters... just a plethora of complexity! The finish is toasty with dark esters and a kiss of bourbon. The smooth mouthfeel, full body, oily palate and easy quaffability make this Impy Sweet Stout extremely dangerous... the ABV is obvious, but so well-integrated and hidden in this complex brew. One might want another.... after another.... Superb offering from Evil Twin! andrepintado (3416) - Lisbon, PORTUGAL - DEC 30, 2016

Can in the North Bar, Leeds. Black with a good beige head. Fairly minimal malty roast aroma. The taste starts spicy with coffee, vanilla and almond. Lpts of chocolate too. Big, rich, delicious flavours. A suberb sweet dessert of a beer. angelkostvo (1233) - CZECH REPUBLIC - DEC 29, 2016

Can, 1 pint. Pours jet black with around a finger of soapy tan head which doesn’t stick around long. Patchy lacing. Dominant aroma is biscuit malts, amaretto and/or biscotti definitely, followed up by some heavy dark chocolate, burned caramel, black coffee, vanilla, roasted nuts, hint of earth and booze. Tad phenolic almost, makes me think of whisky there. Taste is heavy caramel, honey, wholemeal bread and biscuity malts with a ton of assorted almond products (marzipan, amaretto, biscotti, you name it), and very VERY sweet and syrupy for much of the duration of the taste, before after what seems like an age some dry dark malty bitter notes come through with some lingering hints of molasses, cognac, and drying booze. Huge warmth to it. Palate-wise the body is unexpectedly light for the style though the texture is silky smooth enough and carbonation is as always practically nil. No subtlety here whatsoever but as cliche as it is it really does go down a treat on a winter’s night like this. LetsGoState (886) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Aroma and taste is your typical stout. Thought there could’ve been more biscotti, but it was decent. Beerowl80 (385) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - DEC 24, 2016
Can. Pours dark brown. Aroma of nuts, biscuit, amaretto, chocolate, coffee and roast malts. Sweet taste with mild roasty bitterness. A little thine than expected but ultimately very enjoyable. argeru (94) - Hillsboro, Oregon, USA - DEC 24, 2016
Pint Can 4pk from Whole Foods. Never had EvilTwin before, so this is a wonderful first impression. Dark burgundy, near black pour, head dissipates quickly. Smell big vanilla, big caramel, malt, dark chocolate, bit of date/raisin, splash of citrus/orange. Taste caramel, slight licorice, blackcurrant, some bready/malty/chocolatey goodness. Reminds me a lot of Tuaca liqueur. Very nice stuff! anstei (2254) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - DEC 23, 2016
Bottle, courtesy of SinH4. Pours almost complete black. Little brown foam. Aroma is strong chocolate, sweets and cocoa. Some coffee, almost nothing else. Body is not as heavy as expected, rather dark cocoa than milk chocolate. Palate lingers with all the good stuff. Very, very nice!
