look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
APPEARANCE: A quarter-inch brown head sits on top of a jet black beer. The head retention is so-so and lacing is spotty.
SMELL: Big, roasty and bitter smell. Big Shot is a good name for this Espresso beer…this is huge on the coffee aromas. A little touch of chocolate and a tiny hint of citrus are also detectable in this one.
TASTE: Again, huge espresso flavor - roasted malt, coffee, bitterness along with (again) a touch of citrus and bitter, dark chocolate. As it warms the dark chocolate really starts to come out in quite a pleasant way. It provides a touch of sweetness, but adds to the bitterness as well.
MOUTHFEEL: The Big Shot is dry through and through. The mouthfeel is big, but the dry bitterness balances it out a bit.
OVERALL: This is a pretty solid stout from Twisted Pine. If you like coffee and dark chocolate this is an excellent choice.
Serving type: bottle

On tap at L&M Lanes in Rochester, NY.
Pours a dark brown, almost black, with a quarter inch head, and not much lacing.
Smells and tastes basically the same- like roasted coffee beans, vanilla, and chocolate. For an espresso stout, the coffee aspect to this is relatively light, unfortunately. None of the flavors particularly jump out of the glass, it just goes down with really any second thought.
Medium bodied, smooth, silky mouthfeel. Low carbonation.
A bit uninteresting, this brewery hasn't exactly impressed me yet.
Serving type: on-tap
