Moderate pour yields a more than inviting one inch brown head over a nearly black body with some lacing. Nose of roasted (slightly smokey, like chilpotle?) malt, cocoa, coffee, and vanilla. Taste mirrors nose with chocolate fudge flavors dominating over vanilla, coffee, and chili (which builds in your throat over time.) Me likey! Very nice feel and overall, another chocolate bomb from the minds of the evil one and his thumpin' friends.
Cheers!

I’m not a fan of stouts but Irnjoyed this one. My palette is not super-sensitive but I picked up on chocolate and coffee with just a tiny hint of heat. The finish was a little more bitter than I prefer. Mouthfeel is excellent - thick, creamy and rich.

I cannot think of many other stouts that look as good as this one. Pours thick with a rich black color. A large mocha colored head forms and slowly settles. Heavy lacing is left down the glass. A lot is going on with the aroma but unfortunately it does not all go together. Chile and coffee are competing with vanilla, cacao, and roasted malt. No sign of alcohol. The alcohol is also well hidden in the flavor. All the ingredients work much better together in taste. A little warmth from chilies with a hint of coffee. Nice vanilla and chocolate flavors compliments the roasted malt. Seems to be a lot of yeast esters present. Thick and rich body. Smooth and full.

From the tall boy can in a snifter. This exceptional collaboration
pours a rich pitch coal black with a fantastic head of light brown foam
that subsides with much time to a thick ring, thin layer, and displays
some exceptional lacing. Nose of heavy coffee, beefy cocoa, rich vanilla,
and moderate spice of peppers with boozy overtones. Flavors follow
and near exceed the nose with a fantastic presentation of deep dark
coffee, rich vanilla, excellent cocoa nib presentation, and deeply roasted
malts with touches of char and mildly spicy peppers giving balance and
depth to this beast. Excellent mouth feel; BIG full body, slick, smooth,
coating, warming, low carbonation, and a rich boozy finish.

A great from two great breweries done right in a can.

Excellent!

Cheers!

거품은 별로 없었지만, 초코+커피 향이 엄청 강했고, 에스프레소와 술을 섞은 듯한 맛이었다. 맘에 든다.

16 oz. can, just because I’ll buy any stout that Prairie puts out. Speaking of which, split with my wife.

Black. Minimal foam. Smells just like a bar of chili-pepper-infused chocolate I bought in Brusells back in aught thirteen. Yes, I know that isn’t how that works.

Even More Bible Belt makes me wonder if the whole chili pepper thing is near the end of its proverbial rope. Huna & Mexican Cake & countless others & now…this. As usual with collabs, this seems a touch downwind for both breweries. Gentle chili pepper & chocolate, black licorice, a little vanilla right at the end. No coffee or roast spotted. Much better as it warms. Highlight is the rich, smooth mouthfeel, but half the can will be perfectly sufficient.

Perhaps I’m getting jaded in my old beer age. A good, solid beer.

5 oz pour at Lures Bar & Grille. I had this right after Even More Jesus and liked it even better. It is not quite as thick/viscous but the flavors are more complex and multi-layered with the addition of chilies, cinnamon, or whatever else goes into Bomb!

New Evil Twin CANned Beer Sunday (Week 692) may be closed, but I am not done! Not by a little bit, anyway. I got up early to attend our city's annual Memorial Day ceremony at the square & now, I am ready for another beer.

From the CAN: "Evil Twin.DK made by people who truly care[: Jeppe, Chase & Colin.] Brewed and CANned for Evil Twin Brewing at Westbrook Brewing Co, Mount Pleasant SC"; "A collaboration with ... Prairie Artisan Ales"; "Imperial Stout aged on Coffee, Vanilla, Chilies, and Cacao Nibs".

I was a little surprised when the tab fought me on the Crack! to open the vent, but I have encountered this sort of thing in the past. It finally let go with a resounding sound & I followed it up with a slow, gentle Glug into the awaiting glass. The head initially came up to form two-plus fingers of dense, foamy, light-brown head with excellent retention that began to form some nice lacing until I did a top-up. Color was stygian Black/Opaque (SRM = 44), allowing ZERO light penetration. Nose smelled phenomenal! It was exactly as advertised - coffee, chocolate, vanilla and spice, all right there from the outset! Phew. If the taste measures up to the nose, I will have found a new winner. Mouthfeel was full & silky smooth on the tongue. The coffee and vanilla flavors dominated at the outset, but warming, chocolate & chilies began to become very assertive. It was much like a lot of the Mexican Chocolate Stouts that are currently available, but I liked that they did not go overboard with the chili heat. This was manageable for me where some have been more of a chore than a pleasant experience. Finish was dry, as you should expect from any beer that incorporates spices. It was not really hot, though, which may be a let-down for some. I really liked that the vanilla was also held in check as this was the third beer in two days that I have had from them that used it as an adjunct! A little vanilla goes a long way IMHO. YMMV.

Poured into a Fremont small snifter. Pours a very dark mahogany brown, appearing nearly opaque black in the glass with a two finger light brown head with great retention and light lacing. Looks nice. Aroma of dark toasted malt, malted milk, cocoa, vanilla, coffee and a hint of hot pepper; no surprises. Flavor is lightly sweet dark toasted malt, coffee, vanilla, lactose, dark chocolate and some mild chili. Finishes with semi-sweet milky dark malt, chocolate and a hint of hops and chili. Medium bodied with light creaminess and good carbonation. Pretty much delivers what it promises, which is a big mixture of stout adjuncts. The best is the chocolate, which is deeper and darker than expected. Clear coffee without dominating. Vanilla and lactose stand out a little more than they should, I suspect these flavors compound each other and cut through the malt base. The chili is the one ingredient that is much milder than expected, I can taste it but might have missed it if I wasn't looking for it. As is usual for the Evil Twin stouts brewed by Westbrook, very well done. ABV is well covered. On the down side, there is just too much going on here, and while it was enjoyable, it seemed a bit gimmicky and complicated. Glad I got this, but will stick to Bomb! and the More Jesus stouts as more focused.

Pours damn near pitch black with very light carbonation. head is quick and done. Aroma is coffee and a light nose sear from the chilis. Not too much going on in the aroma, very cooling and sweet on the nose. Taste is very sweet, almost too sweet with a lot of vanilla and lactose. coffee is light along with light bitterness but the marshmallow fluff and sugar dominate. Slight chili sear on the lips, one of the postitive notes of the beer.Maybe should have put away and aged?. Little disappointed in the $9 price tag for the cn and what came out of it. Take away the excess sugar and maybe, just maybe, this would have been a better, stronger, more balanced beer. No where near close to what I am used to with Evil Twin
