3.95/5  rDev 0%

Poured a black body with minimal head and lace and has an aroma that is mostly roasted malts and hints of sweet malts like chocolate and bread as well.
The beer is heavy bodied, not the smoothest but not rough, a real roasted/toasted malt presence but not overbearing as there is a little bit of sweetness as well.
A rather simplistic hearty stout but well done and I could drink one of these all the time.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Pours a very appealing black with an inch head.Smell possibly figs,a hint of coffee and malt.Taste is a bit bitter at first but gives way to a bit of a boozy mouthfeel.not a bad stout but nothing to make me choose this over my go to stouts again.Evil Twin makes great beer but this one fell just a bit short of my expectations.alas you may love it.Give it a shot!

3.6/5  rDev -8.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

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.
