Poured from a bottle into a mug, the beer pours a jet black, oil-like look, with a dense, low profile, foamy, dark tan head. Aromas of booze, vanilla, cocoa nibs, dark roasted coffee, and earthy notes throughout. Flavors are boozy forward, with a heavily roasted coffee backbone, molasses and brown sugar highlights, cocoa nib notes, and a building warmth as you drink. The beer is smooth, heavy, and velvety in mouth, with a slick, heavy, lingering finish. The aftertaste is heavily booze-centric, with bitter baker's chocolate in the forefront. This is a beast of a beer, but despite its size, it remains an extremely sip-able brew.

look: 5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 5

Bottled on 4/16/14. Pours black hole dark color with zero light coming through and a massive creamy 3 finger brown that had a ton of tiny bubbles and did not move for about a minute; faded slowly is an understatement, this was like watching paint dry slow. Left outstanding lacing coating the sides, rings as it went down and a creamy layer on top – nailed this one, perfection.

Smells of cocoa powder, roasted grains, dark chocolate, burnt coffee, brown sugar, Chocolate Reddi Wip (whipped cream), caramel, toffee, charred wood, fresh citrus hops and mild alcohol. Nose matches the looks, but the way the hops come through like pineapple was unexpected and yet very welcomed and enjoyable. The chocolate and coffee notes were simply delicious to inhale.

Thankfully it tastes like it smells with a mix of chocolates (Nestle chocolate chips and Hershey’s chocolate syrup come to mind), cocoa powder, roasted grains, vanilla, burnt coffee, brown sugar, sweet cream or half and half, caramel, toffee, charred wood, fresh citrus hops, chicory and mild alcohol. Burped up after a sip and the hops came up like an IPA, which is quite a trick to pull that off with all the rich, roasted chocolate complexities involved. The smoked malts reminded me of a smoke beer, but the acrid burnt flavor was washed away by a coffee milkshake with extra chocolate syrup in it for a sweet and bitter aftertaste. 12% ABV, where the hell is that??? It’s well hidden and the flavor of this shocked me as it may be the smoothest Evil Twin stout that I’ve tasted.

Mouthfeel is slick, creamy and chewy at the same time, with a heavy body that is like a shake with mild carbonation and a bitter finish that’s like burnt Starbucks coffee with a shot of espresso and a burnt chocolate chip cookie floating in it, add in a squirt of Hershey’s chocolate syrup and a dash of cocoa powder and dry Cascade hops and that’s how I sum up this beer. Not as expensive as the Evil Twin bombers, this is an affordable option to get your Evil Twin stout fix. Tasty, fun and damn enjoyable, it’s just below a world class stout to me but close enough that I will seek this out and highly recommend it.
