3.6/5  rDev -8.9%

Aroma: Slightly benign, don't pick up much of anything
Appearance: A beautiful black beer, with a rich thick tan foamy head
Taste: Medium bitterness up front, balanced with a lightly sour/salty backend
Palate: Full bodied with an oily, slick texture, flat carbonation with a slightly astringent finish
Overall: A decent stout, definitely middle of the road for me; however, I have had three 64 ounce fills of this from my local growler store over the last month so obviously I like it! I think, unfortunately, I am measuring everything stout from Evil Twin against "I Love You With All My Stout" which I absolutely loved. I love Evil Twin, I just didn't love this stout as much as I had hoped I would.

4.01/5  rDev +1.5%

Poured from 12oz bottle into a tulip.

Appearance: utterly black with a finger of creamy dark-tan foam atop. Not much more you can ask of a beer.

Smell: rich and roasty, but not acrid, with a good sweetness underneath. Coffee and chocolate come through, along with a nice dark-fruitiness. I'm a fan.

Taste: much like the aroma, in that it is super roasty without being astringent or acrid. Specific coffee and chocolate notes are a little toned down from the aroma, but there's still that subtle element of dark fruit complexity that I like. Quite good.

Mouthfeel: big body with a decent carbonation and a good creaminess. Appropriate for a stout of this nature; I quite like it.

Overall: this is a pretty satisfying Imperial stout. I could see myself drinking more of this.
