Thanks to queens1130 for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, smoke, cocoa powder, and dark chocolate aromas. Taste is much the same with dark roasted malt, smoke, and dark chocolate flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast and smoke bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of smoke qualities to go along with the dark chocolate.

Serving type: bottle.

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high dark tan head that gradually died down, leaving a thin film covering the surface and a narrow collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of smoked chestnuts are present in the nose along with hints of chocolate and roasted malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell but has stronger flavors with additional hints of roasted malts towards the finish. There is a slight amount of bitterness and no alcohol is perceptible. The smoke seems to get a bit stronger as the beer warms up.
M: It feels medium- to full-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is surprisingly easy to drink considering its strength because the alcohol is well hidden from the taste. The smoked chestnuts and chocolate really work well.

Built around the masculine and tantilizing combination of smoky chocolate, Evil Twin's larger-than-life stout puts its full brunt of roast character on full display.

Even More Denmark, showcases deep and dark chocolate that''s carefully woven into its onyx-black body. Dense, creamy and stained with char, its sturdy lather pushes bold notes of espresso, campfire, cocoa, roasted chestnut and burnt cream out of the glass while its singed toffee and marshmallow layer decadently on the mouth.

With the sweetness thrusted downwards and the roast held high, the middle palate heavily favors the darker side of the stout. Strong roast coffee links with bitter cocoa, smoldering ember, pepper and burnt grain for a fast drying taste that's as challenging to the palate as it is satisfying.

And as the flavors finish, its lacking malt sweetness leaves the palate ashy, powdery and with high roast grain astringency. Pepper and burnt flavors accompany strong booze deep and linger well into aftertaste.

Taste horrible - smoked flavor over done. Not suble at all, perhaps chochlate has fallen off?

From 01/12/13 notes. Picked up a bottle of this at Whole Foods last week. 22 oz. bottle poured into a snifter.

a - Pours a dark brown color with one inch of dark tan head and moderate carbonation evident. Looks very nice.

s - Smells of smokey malts, dark chocolate, roasted malts, clay, toasted malts, burnt malts, and nuts. Smokier than I expected but prety nice nose as the chocolate does come through as well.

t - Tastes of smoked malts, dark chocolate, bitter hops and chocolate, roasted malts, burnt malts, peat, and light coffee. Follows the nose pretty closely but less chocolate. Smoke kind of dominates.

m - Medium to full body and moderate carbonation. Smooth and not hot, nice mouthfeel.

o - Overall a nice smoked stout, though the smoke dominates and makes it a little one dimensional. Good but personally I like their other stouts much better so would go for one of those next time. Might like this better if you love smoked stouts.

2013 bottle, opened Jan 2015

A - Deep bowling ball black. Creamy milk chocolate head pours half a finger high with ok rendition and lace.

S - Hazelnuts, hammy smoke, touch of a plastic off-note, brown sugar, dry wood, chestnuts.

T - Smokey. Brown breads, burnt wood chips, liquid smoke, chestnuts, hazelnuts.

M - Medium-light body. Creamy finish.

O - A little too much ham in the smoke, but overall not a bad stout.

On tap at Hops and Pie. Dark black color, decent head at first, looks just fine. Aroma is muted. slight bit of chocolate. The flavor was bad, burnt meat, bitter, ashy, hardly any chocolate. This was a pretty bad stout, disappointing to say the least. I would never buy this beer nor order another on tap.

Nuttiness and roast malt character dominate. Doesn't seem to have the richness of others in the series. Chocolate is noted, but there's a bit of smoke that comes across stronger.

The beer comes in a dark black color with some brown.

The aroma has a bacony smoked malt with some chocolate as well.

The flavor follows with that smoked malt of camp fire and bacon. There is a melding of milk and bittersweet chocolate throughout from the middle on. A slight bit of sweetness and hazelnut nuttiness and then a bright fruity coffee on the finish.

A decent full motuhfeel on this.

A decent beer for those who aren't really into smoked beers. The chocolate dances well with the smoked malt. A well made smoked stout.

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!
