BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Evil Twin Brewing
New York, United States
eviltwin.dk

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 17.20%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
This is a really big beer and we wanted to put it in small bottles, but the two bozos were so fat they couldn’t fit on the label. Enjoy this rich, ridiculous and screwball-ish Imperial Stout with hints of: molasses, lactose, chocolate, almond, hazelnut, vanilla bean, cinnamon, oak spiral, chili, marshmallow, muscovado sugar, chesnut and coffee. Made for Bozos.

Deep, dark black with a creamy 1/2 finger head of brown.

Aromas of cinnamon, oak, banana, chocolate, vanilla, and slight alcohol.

Lots of decadent chocolate on the tongue, with hot cinnamon, light acidic coffee, hot fudge, salt, chili, oak barrel, and alcohol. Dark fruits. Grape skin. Some funkiness that I know had to be from a mistake I must have made while canning it.

Feel is really huge. Like, gigantic. Viscous, hot, burning, insane. Almost like chili but it's the alcohol.

Overall, I remember trying Bozo while it was on tap and I was so incredibly impressed I crowlered two cans. This time around (granted it's a month later) it's much less impressive, but still a worthy beer. I could have sworn this was on the level of Prairie, but tonight it's simply an alcoholic mess - albeit a tasty one.

This beer pours a dark black with hardly any head. The aroma offers up marshmallow, fudge, hot pepper, and soy sauce. The flavor features soy sauce, peat, cocoa, fig, plum, vanilla, oak, and something rather vegetal, The mouthfeel is really quite thin for the heft of the flavor. Overall this was an interesting beer - it certainly showcased some unusual flavor combos, and not in a bad way, but I would have loved a bit more richness to counter the savory and umami qualities.

This beer is pitch black in color with no head formation. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, and dark fruits. Taste is chocolate covered fruits up front with a hershey syrup flavor coming through in the back end. Some slight hints of coffee that are barely perceptible as compared to the aroma. This beer is more along the flat end and more reminiscient of a spirit with an abv coming in at 17.2%.

Probably my favorite Evil Twin to date. A gorgeous looking beast of a stout. Just a delicious flavor with so little alcohol. All the flavored are subtle but present and complimentary. Love the hint of cinnamon.

Dark hole black; thin, brownish head. Earthy; coffee; cocoa nibs. Explosive flavor: chocolate; vanilla; anise; mint; coffee; bitter and sweetly acrid; roasted grains. Heavy, rich and smooth; some boozy dryness yet the dark malt sweetness prevails.

A monster of a beer. Sweet and robust with a subtle boozy kick. When you need a big'un...this one is a big'un...
