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.
