Picked this up a few weeks ago in New York at the Whole Foods on Houston St. I never had a beer from Evil Twin before and one of the workers there recommended this to me. While this didn't stand out from the other myriad Stouts that are available this time of this year, this was an extremely drinkable beer that felt weaker than it was because of how hidden the alcohol was and how well the flavors meshed together. This almost felt like a Porter because of the smokiness of the taste and the roasted aspect but I didn't mind at all, since this was not that hard to quaff!

The pour to this was a very dark brown with a moderate tan head that quickly settled. Not a lot of lacing to be seen here and the aroma wasn't that strong either, although the smoky chestnut dominated here in a subtly strong way. Lots of that in the taste as well, with some bitter chocolate and coffee as well. This had one of the thinnest mouthfeels for a Stout that I've ever had and the carbonation wasn't overtly present either. Not a lot of stickiness to this either and since the alcohol was so recessed, this almost felt like a Coffee Stout than a Double or Imperial Stout.

This certainly was strong but it took a while for that to set in. It would be possible to down a few bottles in a sitting since this was so easygoing and enjoyable. While not my favorite example of this style, it was great for a nice cold and damp night such as this were I wanted something dark, mellow, and with just enough flavor. The roasted notes lingered nicely before fading away and this had almost enough sweetness as a Milk Stout. Worth a try once by anyone who loves dark beers and doesn't want to get knocked over by one!

At first sip, you know this is more than just another chocolate stout. Smoked chestnuts and roasted coffee give this beer some nice depth and does a great job balancing any possible sweetness. The chocolate rounds out your palate and gives you this reassuring warm cozy feeling that everything's going to be ok...
However, as you work your way through the glass, the chocolate notes die down and the smoke rises. Better classified as a smoked stout with traces of chocolate than a chocolate stout with notes of smoked chestnuts.
Nevertheless, another great brew from Evil Twin.
