Under the name"Soft DK". Black with small brown head. Sweet mild aroma with vanilla, coffee and milk notes. Mild vanilla sweetness in the taste, followed by some sourness and roasted bitterness, coffee notes. Slightly sweet aftertaste. MelvinKalksma (1536) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 1, 2017

Medium/heavy aroma of malts, caramel, vanilla, chocolate, molasses, mocha, roasted malts and coffee.
Opaque black beer with slight yeast and with a slight/medium dark brown head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, vanilla, chocolate, molasses and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. Not overly sweet, nor overly bitter and dry. Could have used more vanilla and roasted malts if you ask me. Still, it is greatly balanced and really tasty.
Pours black with light beige head. Aroma is vanilla, coffee, roast, sweetness, raisin, peanuts, chocolate, cocoa, some smoke, wood, light sourness. Taste is dry, grapes, coffee, cocoa, roast, raisins, sourness, berries, sour fruits, some burned grass. Superb beer! bonev (780) - POLAND - DEC 29, 2016
Na kranie w Beer Temple Amsterdam: Piwo nieprzejrzyste w kolorze czarnym z niezbyt obfita aczkolwiek gesta drobnopecherzykowa piana w ciemno bezowym kolorze. W aromacie mamy troche rodzynek, mleczna czekolada i wanilia. W smaku nie jest az tak slodko jak zapowiadalo sie w aromacie. Mamy ciasto kakaowe, palonosc i lukrecje. Goryczka troche alkoholowa z wysyceniem na dosc niskim poziomie. Intensywne i ciekawe ale myslalem ze zrobi na mnie wieksze wrazenie. SHIG (4962) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - DEC 25, 2016
Bottle: Poured a dark black with tan head. Aroma was roast and vanilla. Taste is roast with edgy alcohol, light vanilla and creamy finish.

Really good imperial stout with a lot of hype. Good roasted malt aroma. Great flavors of malt, toffee and vanilla. Creamy and full palate. Very dark with a tan head. islay (2755) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 7, 2016
12 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-4-16. Labeled as “Evil Twin Soft DK.” Has something on the order of a year of age on it. Pours dark brown with a surprisingly dark, rose-brown head. Dark amber hue. Short-lasting head, but it looks very good while it’s there. One of the darker heads I’ve seen, even in this style. Fruity aroma: Raisin, plum. Refreshing, slightly metallic smell. Roasted malt aroma. Nice, chocolatey taste, but it’s a pretty dark chocolate. Char flakes. Booze-soaked raisins. Not nearly as sweet as I was expecting. Not particularly sweet at all, in fact, and I think that’s to the beer’s benefit. Alcohol heat noticeable to a surprising degree given how much age is on this. Burnt malt finish and aftertaste. A bit of the metal from the aroma also is present in the finish, which isn’t ideal. For the most part, a nice, typical, imperial stout flavor. Full body. A bit oily in the palette. Surprisingly easy to drink. Unremarkable palate effects. A pretty good imperial stout is a very good beer, and this is a pretty good imperial stout. It didn’t blow me away, but I definitely enjoyed it. A remarkably poorly named beer under it’s original name; the name both disgusts and misleads, as it smells and tastes nothing like suggested. kraddel (8130) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - DEC 5, 2016
Pours black, small grey head. Smell is roasty, taste is full, roasty, vanilla, mild sweetness. Very nice! easy drinkable, especially for the abv. Bit low on the mouthfeel . eXORRO (248) - POLAND - NOV 30, 2016
Nice beige head quickly dissappearing. Aroma of vanilla, chocolate, coffee, caramel, dark fruits, cocoa, roasted malts. Semi dry with alcoholic finish. Some chocolate, coffee, licorice. Carbonation is far too high. Body is medium. Sharp, alcoholic bitter is really annoying. Expected more from this beer. Average Imperial Stout with much better aroma than taste. bulldogops (2495) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 27, 2016

Rating #2319 - 2016.01.26 - Bottle from CBI. Have had this before as well, obviously some inebriated gaps in the beer journal. Pours jet black with a luxurious velvety tan head with excellent retention. Aroma is heavy on cocoa, dark roast coffee, toffee, burnt sugar notes. Coffee flavours throughout, accented by chocolate notes and a creamier texture. Phenomenal.
