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.

Nose is dark roasted coffee, roast malts, some dark chocolate and just a hint of vanilla. Taste is spectacular. Evil Twin's stouts have consistently satisfied me. My least favorite has been their Yin Imperial Stout and it was a good one. There is vanilla right out front with heavy, roasted notes and some coffee coming up in the back. There's a slight strand of chocolate running through but the vanilla and roasted malts are strongest. The coffee flavors sticks around on the tongue afterwards paired with some hints of vanilla. It says "Best by 2015" on the bottle so I may put one away to try in a year or so. God I love Evil Twin.

EDIT: After reading some other reviews I can also pick up a bit of smokiness like Stone's Smoked Porter. Its really mellow though, and it comes across as roasted malts. There is definitely a smokiness there though, especially in the aftertaste.

A - a good rendition of stout with a dark head that faded too quickly for my liking.

S - complex and strong. leather and malts on the nose. tobacco that i couldn't place until drinking it and then smelling it again.

T - Tobacco like a nice unlit cigar, leather, malt, hop bitterness to balance, mild alcohol on the palate. this is complex like most beers are not. I couldn't get enough of the taste on this one and it was great cold and warm.

M - soft and full, but not chewy.

D - I would drink this one again if it came my way, but couldn't spring for a victorian pint (?) for $13. This and the Yin are the best offerings by evil twin. I may break down and get one of these for a tasting sometime as it is pretty unique.

Served On Tap at the Black Squirrel in ADMO.

A: Midnight dark chocolate froth, NO light Shinning through.

S: Dark chocolate syrup. Gothic england malts. Cane sugar, raspberry jam, Vanilla biscuits.

T: This is one smoootthhh operator. Seriously the most smooth stout ever, and it wasn't even on a nitro tap. Deserving of a repeat buy (I bought another, then came back a week later bought 2 more, and two weeks later..well you get my point) Think of Dark chocolate moose in a glass. Vanilla biscuit. Strawberry puree, bourbon barrel. Toasted English biscuit malts. Vanilla wafers.

M: Can I just call it ultra smooth froth??
That is the most eat smooth tasting stour ever. It feels like light whipped cream in your mouth with a low carbo pills.

O: A damn impressive drink. The smoothest beer of all time.. The name says it all. You can drink like 3 of these easy and then loose sense of gravity and pee all over the bathroom floor before saying "damn that is one damn good beer... burrrpp"

On-tap at Local Option

A - It pours a visibly viscous deep brown-black, and is capped with a frothy khaki head.

S - The nose is a fantastic mix of chocolate cake, roasting coffee, rich toffee, and herbal-citric marmalade notes.

T - Amazingly luscious. Other than the expected (and delivered) roast-cocoa-coffee-toffee, surprising notes of green hoppiness abound, as does subdued berry fruitiness; it is sorta hopped like Old Rasputin, but way nicer. The roast and chocolate-vanilla notes are sublime, and the silky, decadent feel seems to push it over the top.

M - This brew is so amazing in terms of silky, satiny mouthfeel. The best mouthfeel I've experienced, I dare say.

O - This beer is fantastic. There is a new force to be reckoned with in Denmark: Evil Twin.

Pours a deep, rich sable only a whisker or two above black with a thick, foamy, fine-bubbled light tan head that leaves some good lacing. Strong aroma is smoky with tones of semi-sweet chocolate, coffee, caramel and molasses - and, yes, there is a subtle vanilla note as well. Flavor has notes of roast coffee, chocolate, caramel, vanilla and molasses. Smooth texture has above-average body and a fair amount of fizz. This one's a winner, so look for it!
