look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a very dark brown color with a big brown thick chocolatey head. Decent retention and excellent lacing. Aroma is pretty heavily roasted coffee and chocolate. A bit of smokiness. Sweet molasses. Taste is surprisingly....subtle. Some noticeable bitterness up front. The roasted malts aren't as present as in your typical stout. The flavor leans more toward coffee than chocolate. Pretty heavily roasted. Licorice comes through a bit as it warms. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy. A tiny bit of alcohol bite. The more subtle taste results in a Stout that is shockingly easy to down. Although the taste is pleasant, its subdued nature is a bit off-putting for a stout, and definitely unexpected for a 10%er. If you're looking for a Stout that has a high percentage, decent taste, and easy to drink, look no further than this. Nevertheless, I'm still a little bit disappointed with my first Evil Twin brew.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: A nice bubble show and then the beer settles in to present a three finger mocha-colored head perched atop the engine oil colored liquid; strands of lacing linger

Smell: Roasty tones, black bread, chocolate, mint and pine

Taste: The roast, black bread and chocolate lay down the backbone but there is a surprising bitterness from the hops that arrives in the mid-palate; fudge flavors mingle with the piney bitter tones, after the swallow, and there is a touch of mint in the finish

Mouthfeel: Full bodied with moderate carbonation

Overall: A very nice example of the style and a great finish to the Evil Twin trifecta I sampled this evening
