3.9/5  rDev -1.3%

This beer pours a black body with a brownish kaki head.

Smell predominately of DARK roasted coffee with a bit of sweetness and alcohol.

Taste like a coffee stout.. does not get really into the deep fruit flavors that have a lot of depth. This one is more of a sharp coffee/burnt flavor with a finish that is too bitter to complement the beer.

Overall just an alright kinda bitter stout with a lot of coffee/burnt flavor

Found this at the local liquor store, and I've heard awesome things about Evil Twin so I had to give it a try.
Pours a very dark black color with a delightful mocha/tannish head. Smell is sweet with a little bit of hops, black liquorice, coffee, and dark chocolate. Taste is sweet ending with a hoppy, bitter aftertaste. Chocolate, coffee, Coca-Cola, and dried figs.
Definitely a delicious stout, just a little overpriced ($3.99) in my opinion.
