look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Rich, black body with a voluminous, three finger, khaki coloured head that remains in place for quite a long time. Looks terrific!
Smell is smoke, dark, loamy earth, spent coffee grounds and semi-sweet baker's chocolate.
Flavour is smoke, a surprising woodiness, mildly sweet suggestion of toffee, and finishes with a slight earthy bitterness.
Mouthfeel is pleasantly weighted given the style, but not quite what I was expecting given the abv.
A well crafted stout with well hidden alcohol, not the type of smoke I was expecting to see, however. Overall, still a great offering from Evil Twin.

Weirdly, a huge (more than three fingers) tan head forms up, popping away slowly, leaving a small creamy cappuccino cap and a few traces on the side of the glass. Black in colour.
Smells awesome: bacon, chocolate and clear oranges, quite a weird combo, but works great. Smoke, dark malts, faint coffee bean, green hops.
Quite a complex taste, maybe a bit too much really. Roasted malts, almost burnt, citrus juice and a big phenolic feel in the front. There's also some dark fruit, dark cooking chocolate, cream, cinnamon and faint vanilla, fainter licorice, followed by more and more roasted notes, getting to ash, charcoal, burnt wood, touch of peat and with a small smokey hint right at the finish. American hops stand tall in this one, almost close to a Black IPA, closing the beer with a nice leafy bitterness, alongside the obvious burnt dark bread crust and quite a bit of warm alcohol.
Medium body, creamy, smooth (if not for a bit of surplus fizz).
Really enjoyed this one, forgiving with the smokiness, but generous with the hops and the nice roasty chocolate. Might seem a bit rough, but nothing too hard to stomach.
