4.17/5  rDev -0.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

I enjoyed this aged bottle on a fresh palate during our annual stout tasting poured chilled from the bottle into a stout glass.

The color is black and opaque with quick dropping medium tan head and slight speckle of lace sticks. The smell has strong caramel and light stone fruit with gentle chocolate malt character and mild alcohol in the aroma with hint of spice. The feel is big and boozy with medium bitterness and semi-dry with moderate carbonation and mild alcohol in the mostly dry finish.

The taste is very good with bittersweet cocoa and light herbal and spicy quality with moderate alcohol in the taste and slight cherry-like stone fruit flavor coming through with slight char-note and dark toasted grain with mild fusel quality in the finish. Overall I enjoyed this and would get it again but it is intense and not shy with the alcohol even though it is very drinkable for the strength

Heavy charred malts and burnt sugars. I Don't pick many finer flavors out typically found in good stouts (coffe, chocolate, vanilla) just the booze and a extreme sweetness comes through. Lots of better options out there (Pt5, , Narwhal, etc...)

This was a very good RIS and my first Eviltwin beer. Flavor is heavy on burnt sugar, figs and raisins. The high ABV is clearly present but not overwhelming. A great beer overall and very good for the style. Looking forward to even more Jesus and imperial biscotti break. Cheers

I'm conflicted on this one. It looks and smells great, but is a sweet mess, which masks the other flavors. I'm glad to have tried this one, but won't likely try again.

22 oz bottle, poured into a goblet

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color with a half of a finger of chocolate-colored head that quickly dissolved away into a thin lacing of foam that completely covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Wow! Intense! Earthy, rich, aromas of roasted malt and freshly ground coffee beans as well as a ton of chocolate, brown sugar, molasses and hints of licorice. There are notes of freshly toasted dark bread, and a hint of smoke as well. Delicious!

Taste: Wow! Rich, earthy, complex, and friggin’ delicious! Strong flavors roasted malt up front, imparting notes of freshly brewed coffee, dark chocolate, a hint of smoke. There’s tons of brown sugar and dark molasses-like sweetness, as well as chicory, a hint of licorice, some boozy alcohol and at the finish, a touch of coffee-like bitterness. Absolutely delicious!

Mouthfeel: Chewy and creamy, thick and satisfying and no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 12%, there is a very pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: This is an exceptionally delicious beer! Roasty, malty, rich, earthy, complex, sweet, slightly smoky and slightly bitter. Spectacular! It’s one of the best non-barrel-aged stouts that I’ve had. Easily up there with Oskar Blues Ten-Fiddy, Great Lakes’ Blackout Stout, Founders’ Imperial Stout, etc. Highly recommended!

I love Evil Twin's Yin & Yang and was really looking forward to trying this one, but unfortunately it's not for me. The big problem is its way too syrupy sleep. Feels more like I am drinking pancake than beer. Not terrible by any means, but I will stick to Yin & Yang

Huge depth of flavor. A little boozy. Similar to ten Fidy but didn't finish as well.

Pours jet black with a decent amount of head that leave some lacing.

Smells- Coffee, and roasted malts.

Taste-Follows the smell, bold coffee flavor but with some chocolate and a tiny bit of sweetness towards the back end

MF-Full bodied

Overall-Great stout, shame it's a limited edition.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Brooklyn chalice.

Appearance: Pours midnight black with a moderate amount of bubbles. About one finger of tan head that settles into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A rich and roasty dark malt driven aroma with a scent of chocolate and coffee. Dark roasted barley malt with hints of dark chocolate, coffee, charred toast, biscuit, smoke, and yeast. Sweet hints of molasses and some black licorice. Subtle dark fruit hints of cherry, raisin, and fig. A very solid roasty aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a roasty and rich dark malt dominated taste with notes of chocolate, coffee, and dark fruit. Dark roasted barley malt with notes of dark chocolate, bitter roast coffee, charred toast, biscuit, grains, smoke, and yeast. Sweet notes of molasses and cream. Dark fruit undertones of black cherry, raisin, and fig. Hops are pretty light. A very good roasty taste.

Mouthfeel: Thick and full bodied with a moderate level of carbonation. Creamy and somewhat syrupy. Alcohol heat is felt but it isn’t overly hot.

Overall: Another very good Imperial Stout from Evil Twin. Big dark and roasty malt flavors with some nice subtle dark fruit.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a medium size dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of fusel alcohol with some residual sugar and light roasted malt is mildly intriguing. Taste is dominated by way to much fusel alcohol for my own taste with loads of residual sugars and light black chocolate and roasted malt notes. Body is full with nice creamy texture with medium carbonation and loads of alcohol being apparent. Unbalanced mess with way to much alcohol and residual sugar apparent.

This beer from ET is absolutely awesome. First tried this beer last year in a bottle from a local bottle shop. It's dark, rich, and has a great punch. Recently I was able to try this on draft and it was absolutely stunning. Deep, complex, with dark coffee richness. Can't wait to drink it again!

First off, I don't get the name of this beer. Kinda dumb.

I poured a 12 ounce bottle into an oversized Belgian tulip.

Great frothy, dark khaki head. Persists well. Leaves a layer of lace over the body and ring around the edges of the glass. Pitch-black body. 4.5

That's a potent smelling stout though. Sticky malt aroma and dark chocolate that almost borders on syrup. Somehow there's a faint berry flavor, not sure if it's the result of the yeast, the hops, or the malt. Pretty attractive though. 4.25

Bit of brown sugar and molasses join the fray here. I still get a berry-quality, dark chocolate and a bit of booze. The finish lingers with baker's chocolate dryness and flavor. As the beer warms I start tasting fruitcake-like flavors: jammy orange peel, cranberry, and a boozy-marzipan-like taste. Quite a lot going on here. Not sure what's bringing about all these flavors but it's impressive. If not for the boozy heat, this score would be over the top. 4.25

I've noted the booze, but there's a roasted feel, sweetness in abundance but of an adult-kind, and a slightly bitter, dryer finish. There's a bit of a zesty feel too, which is quite unique. 4.25

This brew is damn good. No two ways about it.

A pitch black beer with a thin beige head that collapses to a little foam edge. The smells is of licorice, chocolate, rubbing alcohol, molasses, dark fruits, and roasted malts. Taste is of roasted malts, chocolate, coffee, alcohol, damp wood, lots of licorice and a molasses sugar flavor. A moderate mouth feel with a bit of a oily taste.

330ml bottle bought from Lighthouse Wines, Jordanstown

Poured pretty much pitch black... Burnt mocha tan head poured very big thick and foamy with a pock marked meringue like topping which faded slowly to good thick covering with lots of thick sticky lacing...

Aroma - Roasted / charred chocolate malts, light smoky notes, charred bread, nice strong molasses / treacle sweetness mixed with dark fruits (black cherries and grapes, dates, raisins), some balsamic vinegar notes, very earthy, burnt coffee beans...

Taste - Chocolate malts and liquorice to the fore followed by lots of treacle and brown sugar sweetness, piney hop bitterness, balsamic, sooty notes, strong espresso coffee, toasted / charred bread, stewed prunes, black cherries, light woodiness, quite peppery, nice warming booze...

Feel - Sharp initially then and smooths out nicely... full bodied... fairly drinkable for 12% although you can certainly feel the effects of the booze after a while...

Overall - A very complex beer which takes a few sips before all the flavours emerge... recommended...

12oz bottle into a solo cup.

A: Almost totally opaque, looks like strong coffee. Frothy 1" caramel head, dissipates kinda quick but never quite goes away. Lacing is minimal.

S: Surprising. Cocoa & raspberry seem to be the main notes here. Reminds me a bit of Black Butte XXVI.

T: Comes on semi-sweet with a cocoa note. The fruitiness from the nose is undetectable on the palate. What I love is the somewhat hop-bitter finish that emulates black coffee. That's truly a nice touch & definitely fits with Evil Twin's MO.

M: This is the one aspect that I've got scruples with. I like the somewhat highish carb, but man, this stout is watery.

O: What can I say, I like it.

Looks great. However, the nose and taste aren't. Heavy on sweet maltiness. not much roast. thin mouthfeel.

12 oz bottle served slightly chilled into a goblet.

I love you with my stout is a deep brown color with good clarity seen on the pour. It's not as dark or as thick looking as I expected.

Aroma is all dark chocolate, black cherries, and a hint of roasted malt.

Flavor is much the same with lots of dried dark fruits, bittersweet chocolate, and dark malts. It has a good sweetness and never seems overly roasts or bitter.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and smooth with an appropriately low level of carbonation.

Overall a delicious imperial stout from a company that certainly seems to have the style down pat.

12 oz bottle. Not sure of starting temp but at least 55 degrees. Very dark brown. Not much head. Smells sweet. Some chocolate among the melded aromas. Taste is also sweet. Molasses? Some chocolate. No bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium but a bit syrupy. Wish mouthfeel was more in line with Founders Breakfast Stout, Prairie Bomb or Goose Island but I like this beer. Better than Biscotti Break.

April 15, 2015

12 oz bottle, snifter

A – Deep black, opaque, though with a slight impression of dark, rich brown. A very thin layer of chocolate-tan foam, maybe a millimeter, beautiful while it lasts, which isn’t long.

S – Dark chocolate, vanilla, caramel, toffee, raisins, and perhaps a bit of pine and tropical fruit. A lot of sweet fruity esters in the background, some American hops. Smells thick, with winey or sherry notes. Would swear this is barrel-aged, though it does not appear to be. A lot in common with a barrel-aged American barley wine, as opposed to a stout.

T – Sweeter dark chocolate and vanilla, a bit of molasses. Very fruity, almost a blackberry impression, with some pine and even resin following behind. Very hop bitter, really lingering throughout the finish. Some fruity alcohol notes.

M – Starts off very sweet and then bitterness kicks in hard. Carbonation is fairly low, with a full body. A bit of alcohol warmth in the end. Thick, but not quite oily.

O – A very well-built, complex, even complicated stout, with a lot of characteristics of American barley wine. Like that, plus a lot of roast and chocolate. Really fantastic, though I’m not in love with the mouthfeel. Still, very recommended.
