Look: Typical ET stout. Pitch brown body. Darker than usual thick foamy head that quickly retreats to a think film and halo around the glass.
Smell: Medium roast coffee, sweetness, a little lactose, maybe some chocolate, and a touch of char.
Taste: The taste is very similar to the nose.
Feel: Sufficient. It works well with all of the other elements.

Overall - Not bad. I would have it again, especially at the current price point. All of these breweries trying to top out their prices are killing my bank account. This one isn't like that, and I don't think it will be.

apparently inspired by a soiled diaper, the label claims banana and vanilla and chocolate and all kinds of stuff, but this is pretty bogus, and one of those beers that for me sort of ends the mikkeller vs evil twin debate, if there even still was one, dont get me wrong, a very good stout, but its less than half as interesting as the label claims it to be. one thing i like a lot about it is its lightness. you get all the dense coffee roast flavor of the dark barley, but you dont end up with all the viscosity that bog these down. the alcohol is impressively well disguised, this drinks dangerously quickly for what it is, thats for sure, and thats one of its best features. there is also a cool nuttiness to the flavor, roasting chestnuts or something, almond flour, its very earthy in there with the coffee notes. its not as sweet as suggested either, which i like. maybe some dried fruit, dates or plums or something, but no banana on my palate at all. maybe a trickle of vanilla too, but very mild in that regard. i like all of the stout, the yins, the christmas eves, the i love you with mys, and on and on, but they really in some ways arent all that different from one another. i see the appeal in this one, but taken in the context of all of his stouts, it certainly doesnt stand out for me. these beers (in some ways because of their price), are judged to a higher standard than most, and frankly this doesnt get the job done for me, as good as it is in terms of overall quality. nothing distinct to revisit here, but thats just me.

Poured ink black into a snifter,a thinner beige crown atop.Aromas of dark fruit and sweet alcohol,I could tell this was gonna be a sweet alcohol bomb right off the bat.Flavors are in your face sweet,vanilla,dark fruit,light chocolate,and a big zing of sweet alcohol in the finish.This is a heavy handed impy stout,it took all of me to finish the bottle,in saying that its good for a sipper.

A: Dark black with a small beige head.

S: Strong Chocolate, Vanilla, A hint of coffee

T: Chocolate, Vanilla, A hint of coffee

M: Slight carbonation, a little bitter with a nice vanilla aftertaste

This beer took be by surprise. I had never heard of it before but decided to try it at Rattle N Hum. Just smelling it before tasting I could tell this was going to be a good beer. The when I tasted it I was very happy that I tried it. Probably one of the best new beers that I've tried in a while. I wish this beer was more available because I would like to have it again and maybe age a bottle of it.

A: Deep dense dark brown under a 2” dense tan foam collar that descends to a thick, lacy film that produeces Guinness quality lace.
S: Dark dried fruit, roast, some cocoa, espresso, very faint banana.
T: The palate follows the nose with more creaminess mellowing the roast and coffee flavors and giving the cocoa a creamy chocolate character. Also has a trace of vanilla with some banana appearing on the finish.
M: Very creamy chewy texture with very moussey, fine soft carbonation
O: A very easy to drink Imperial Stout.

Dark black throughout, no clarity, thick, viscous, heavy, and substantial looking. Gorgeous. This leaves a bit of sticky web-like lace down the glass.

Rich aroma of dark chocolate, roast, a bit of cream, earthy vanilla, and a hint of anise. Complete.

The chocolate flavor in this beer is phenomenal. The chocolate flavor is rich, bitter, sweet, and earthy all in one. There's a bit of dark fruit, sweet vanilla, and anise character as well, but it's minimal and only a complementary accent.

Medium to full bodied with low to moderate carbonation.

This was incredibly tasty, and surprisingly so. Easily, the best Evil Twin beer I've had to date.

Bottle poured into a Hill Farmstead Tulip

A - Dark, chocolate brown. Small mocha colored head sits on top.

S - Light milk chocolate, roasted coffee, sugar, and a light milkiness

T - Dark chocolate that gives it a slight bitter note up front. Roasted coffee, light smoke and charcoal, black cherry. Espresso in the finish that leaves a strong bitter finish

MF - Light body, a bit watery which is surprising given the high alcohol. Light astringent on the finish with the espresso

O - Decent stout that has a lot of flavors but they don't seem to blend together perfectly. I wish the body was a bit thicker as I think it make the flavors pop a bit more. The espresso on the finish is nice but a bit strong so make sure you like coffee before you pick this one up.
