Thanks yeahnatenelson for getting this one, and many others to me.

Appearance. Pours black with a finger of light tan head that rose up after the pour.

Smell. Molasses and licorice with a little chocolate, vanilla and booze. Smells really good.

Taste. Big dark chocolate, some molasses and dark roasty malts. A bit of cherry and fruit, and a little booze. A little woody and a good amout of hops. A bit on the sweet side.

Mouthfeel. Full body with low carbonation.

Overall. A nice big stout. Tastes like a ris to me.

Served from bottle into a Mikkeller oversized wine glass. Poured a massively dark brown (basically black) with a half finger light khaki colored head that subsided to a minimal amount very quickly. Maintained nice lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, roasted malt, dark fruit, coffee, toffee, and vanilla. The flavor was of sweet malt, roasted malt, bread, dark fruit, vanilla, coffee, tobacco, wood, sweet alcohol, and subtle toffee. It had a medium feel on the palate with medium carbonation. Overall this was a fairly good brew. I shared this one awhile back at a Foothills release in the original bottling and I remember it being quite good. Not sure if they changed the recipe on this one or not, but it just doesn’t seem to be the same as before to me. Still a fairly nicely balanced brew, but just falls a little short of some of the other things I’ve had from Evil Twin in the past few days. Definitely worth trying if you have not, or if you just love the name.

On tap for Churchill's Renaissance at Churchill's Pub & Grille in San Marcos, CA.

Pours a murky dark brown with a tan head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, and vanilla. Taste is of dark roasted malt, cocoa, coffee, and vanilla bean. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a nice medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good stout with some tasty vanilla flavors.

On Tap

Churchill's Pub & Grille
San Marcos, CA

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.

1PT .9oz bottle that says Best Before 2015

A: Mocha one finger head, really dark, almost black, noticeable carbonation

S: Roasted malts, vanilla, chocolate, touch of coffee

T: Roasted malts, bitterness, touch of vanilla and chocolate, strong alcohol presence at end

M: Thick and creamy, carbonation is there, a bit boozy for me-feels like it's 18%ABV instead of 10%ABV

O: Good Imperial Stout, but not worth the $15+tax I paid in WI

Or "Soft DK," which I had on tap at Sessions in Greensboro recently. And it kicked my ass in the very best way, so a bottle had to be found, and here it is.

Frickin' gorgeous, with a smooth mocha/tan head, which doesn't last long, but consider the ABV. Liquid is as opaque and ebony as it could be.

Stellar aroma, equal parts gooey chocolate, medium-roast coffee, anise, vanilla, peppermint and alcohol.

Oh yum. Oh hell yeah yum. Tons of flavor here: a distinctive peppermint sort of vibe gives Soft DK an edge over others of its type. And that goes incredibly well with the other main aspect of the taste, the immensely chocolate flavor. There's also a touch of coffee and anise here, while alcohol merely lights a nice little fire under everything to keep it warm. It reminds me of Southern Tier's Choklat infused with mint. I suppose it's the hops and alcohol that combine to give it this minty aspect that I'm noticing. Whatever it is, it's working wonders.

Super-soft texture, which is made of lots of tiny bubbles that caress rather than tickle, and a lighter-than-expected body that is thankfully not at all thin. But you'd expect something thicker.

I see (and smell, taste and feel) nothing to dislike here. This is a fantastic stout, which could have been called Smooth Operator, as classy and silky and seductive as it is. My first meeting with Evil Twin, and most definitely not my last.

The colour is black, the liquid clear. The low head is warm pale brown.

The smell is dry with notes of coffee, vanilla ice cream and vegetables.

The taste starts with old tired coffee, vanilla and boiled vegetables (cabbage). Burned notes, hints of chocolate cookies. The aftertaste is roasted/burned with more vegetables and some sour artificial vanilla.

The carbonation is medium strong, the bubbles small. The liquid is semi-dry and quite light.

Sour. Dry. Odd notes of vegetables. Not a very good imperial stout.
