look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4
12oz bottle poured into a large snifter.
A: Pitch black. An eighth of an inch of brown head dissipates quickly. Lacing is sparse and spotty.
S: Deep fudge and dark chocolate sauce aromas. Tootsie rolls. Espresso. Hint of smoke. Chocolate covered raspberries. Big esters of raspberry, currant, and brandy. Vinous. Soft-spoken alcohol.
T: Vinous. Brandy and sherry. Currants and raspberries. Chocolate covered cherries. Malt takes hold slowly, first with a deeply roasted espresso flavor that builds in intensity. Char. Bitter dark chocolate. Woody roast. Drying finish with lingering flavors of heavy roast, soot, char, and smoke.
M: Thick in body. Coating. Silky with a slick feel that glides over the tongue. Little to no carbonation.
O: A huge beer at 11.5% abv. Its power is obvious with all the vinous qualities, but it drinks very gently. Evil Twin makes some gargantuan beers, but what's more impressive is their ability to keep these beers drinkable despite their brawn.

A: Nearly jet black with a light brown and foamy head. Like being out in the country, in a forest, on a cloudy night. Dark man, real dark.
S: Fresh tar, charcoal, and booze. If you ever worked or lived near a coffee roaster then you'll get the nose on this beer. Just dirty nasty char funk.
T: Pardon the redundant obviousness of this description. It has this funky fermented quality. And for anyone who likes kimchi you'll know what I mean. It also has this sour wine thing going on that makes my head spin. You'll also get the typical coffee and chocolate notes.
M: Sticky with a low, but lingering, carbonation. Surprisingly, not super heavy for an 11.5.
O: Lil' B is a very sexy beer. There is so much going with this beauty it's hard to come up with a complete and worthy summation. It's incredibly aggressive whilst retaining a refined elegance.
If if you see her, don't hesitate. Make your move or she'll end up between the sheets of another suitor.
