Picked this up a few weeks ago in New York at the Whole Foods on Houston St. I never had a beer from Evil Twin before and one of the workers there recommended this to me. While this didn't stand out from the other myriad Stouts that are available this time of this year, this was an extremely drinkable beer that felt weaker than it was because of how hidden the alcohol was and how well the flavors meshed together. This almost felt like a Porter because of the smokiness of the taste and the roasted aspect but I didn't mind at all, since this was not that hard to quaff!

The pour to this was a very dark brown with a moderate tan head that quickly settled. Not a lot of lacing to be seen here and the aroma wasn't that strong either, although the smoky chestnut dominated here in a subtly strong way. Lots of that in the taste as well, with some bitter chocolate and coffee as well. This had one of the thinnest mouthfeels for a Stout that I've ever had and the carbonation wasn't overtly present either. Not a lot of stickiness to this either and since the alcohol was so recessed, this almost felt like a Coffee Stout than a Double or Imperial Stout.

This certainly was strong but it took a while for that to set in. It would be possible to down a few bottles in a sitting since this was so easygoing and enjoyable. While not my favorite example of this style, it was great for a nice cold and damp night such as this were I wanted something dark, mellow, and with just enough flavor. The roasted notes lingered nicely before fading away and this had almost enough sweetness as a Milk Stout. Worth a try once by anyone who loves dark beers and doesn't want to get knocked over by one!

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours pitch black color with a cascading release of tan bubbles like a Guinness that rush up to a 1 finger creamy/foamy tan head that faded slowly and left really good lacing coating the sides as it slid back down into the brew and settled into a creamy layer on top with spotty lacing remaining on the sides.

Smells like chocolate, cocoa powder, coffee beans, roasted malt/grains, burnt wood, lemon zest or light citrus hops, caramel and light vanilla; the smoky and chocolate notes dominate, and there is no hint of the ABV. Smells like a milk stout due to the strong chocolate notes, but to me it was nice with enough malty complexity to make it enjoyable as the snifter rose towards my face.

Flavor follows suit and like the nose smells like chocolate, cocoa powder, coffee beans, roasted malt/grains, burnt wood, lemon zest, citrus hops, caramel, light vanilla and booze; the smoky and chocolate notes still dominate, but there is more bitterness in the flavor like hops and/or coffee like a Starbucks were poured in the mix. There is no hint of the ABV, but the chestnuts listed on the bottle do show up and dance around like a drunk freshmen at a fall pledge party. Strong chocolate notes, roasted or smoked grains and coffee bitterness finish off each sip, but it was enjoyable and very flavorful getting better as it warmed.

Mouthfeel is thick and chewy, like a dense old brew that would move like syrup, with very mild carbonation, a slick and almost watery feel across the tongue and a roasted, bitter aftertaste that is a combo of cocoa, coffee, citrus and burnt grains – this leaves a similar taste that mirrors finishing a Starbucks bold in the morning, so today I started and ended my day with the same great taste.

Overall I really liked this stout, which was dynamic with bold robust flavors that hid the alcohol and yet provided a buzz; this is a great dessert beer, and at $6.99/bottle it was a bargain and worth seeking out. I like what Evil Twin is pushing and will grab some more of their beers as this and Even More Jesus were very good stouts.

Bottle into pfriem tulip - purchased bottle at whole foods port chester, ny for $10.
Nice thick oily black pour with deep tan head. Huuge chocolate and roasted malt aroma - nice English yeast maybe?
Taste is smooth roasty chocolate - its a big brew but super smooth. Yup, another great big stout from Jeppe this time on a great collab with a fantastic chocolatier!
