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!

At first sip, you know this is more than just another chocolate stout. Smoked chestnuts and roasted coffee give this beer some nice depth and does a great job balancing any possible sweetness. The chocolate rounds out your palate and gives you this reassuring warm cozy feeling that everything's going to be ok...
However, as you work your way through the glass, the chocolate notes die down and the smoke rises. Better classified as a smoked stout with traces of chocolate than a chocolate stout with notes of smoked chestnuts.
Nevertheless, another great brew from Evil Twin.

A dark Thick brown head that hangs for a minute, then fades to a ring. Not much lacing but a thin syrupy coating on the sides. Nose is reminiscent of Brooklyn BCS with a bit less alcohol. Heavy chocolate, coffee, roasted grains and slight char. Trace sweet alcohol and burnt sugar. Taste is great. Rich full roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Roasted chestnuts adds nutty smoothness. An english ale yeast I'm guessing by the fruitiness. A bit of plum and fig. Firm bitterness gives a solid finish leaving coffee and earth. Feel is full, velvety and smooth with just the right amount of chew. Goes down way to easy and is supple through the swallow. A great beer for fans of the style. while not a standout it is great with chocolate cake and I would guess softer cheeses, all the usual suspects. Yum

Got a growler at the TriBeCa whole foods. They listed this at 8% strong. Pours with a deep brown head that doesn't last for very long. Not much in the way of scent. Flavors are deep and smoky. Nothing is very over the top or stunning about the beer but I'm enjoying my glass. 85% cocoa chocolate bar, not a prissy milk chocolate. Mouthfeel is a touch thin. Lingering bitterness on the palate. A bit of a smooth, creamy feel pulses between the bitterness; reminds me of some milk stouts in that way.
My first crack at an Evil Twin brew. I look forward to more.

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.

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.

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!
