Roasty malts and bitter chocolate. Great head on this somewhat standard stout.

2013 bottle, opened Jan 2015

A - Deep bowling ball black. Creamy milk chocolate head pours half a finger high with ok rendition and lace.

T - Smokey. Brown breads, burnt wood chips, liquid smoke, chestnuts, hazelnuts.

M - Medium-light body. Creamy finish.

O - A little too much ham in the smoke, but overall not a bad stout.

Taste horrible - smoked flavor over done. Not suble at all, perhaps chochlate has fallen off?

Thanks to queens1130 for sharing this one at Retsinis' tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, smoke, cocoa powder, and dark chocolate aromas. Taste is much the same with dark roasted malt, smoke, and dark chocolate flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of roast and smoke bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer with lots of smoke qualities to go along with the dark chocolate.

Serving type: bottle.

Built around the masculine and tantilizing combination of smoky chocolate, Evil Twin's larger-than-life stout puts its full brunt of roast character on full display.

Even More Denmark, showcases deep and dark chocolate that''s carefully woven into its onyx-black body. Dense, creamy and stained with char, its sturdy lather pushes bold notes of espresso, campfire, cocoa, roasted chestnut and burnt cream out of the glass while its singed toffee and marshmallow layer decadently on the mouth.

With the sweetness thrusted downwards and the roast held high, the middle palate heavily favors the darker side of the stout. Strong roast coffee links with bitter cocoa, smoldering ember, pepper and burnt grain for a fast drying taste that's as challenging to the palate as it is satisfying.

And as the flavors finish, its lacking malt sweetness leaves the palate ashy, powdery and with high roast grain astringency. Pepper and burnt flavors accompany strong booze deep and linger well into aftertaste.

Nuttiness and roast malt character dominate. Doesn't seem to have the richness of others in the series. Chocolate is noted, but there's a bit of smoke that comes across stronger.
