Enjoyed from the 16 oz can in a snifter. This solid brew pours a dark
blackish brown with a very nice head of light brown foam that settles
to a thick ring, faint light film, and shows some excellent lacing. Nose
of dark cocoa, light vanilla, dark roasted malts, dark fruit hints, and
faint dark coffee. Flavors nail it with a solid presentation of dark
cocoa, light cream, char, roast, brulee, dark coffee, dark fruits of
black and blueberry, and subtle brewers licorice touches. Nice mouth
feel; medium full edging on full, low carbonation, smooth as silk, rich,
coating, and finishing with a bitter malt note and subtle warmth.

Overall----Evil Twin....nothing more to say than another winner!

Cheers

A: The beer is jet black in color. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down, leaving a thin but dark tan layer of bubbles covering the surface, a narrow collar around the edges and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of dark malts are present in the nose along with notes of licorice.
T: The taste follows the smell and has flavors of dark malts with notes of coffee and hints of licorice.
M: It feels medium-bodied and dry on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This stout does a very good job at masking any traces of alcohol from the taste.

1 pint can. The beer pours really dark.

The beer pours a dark color. It’s smooth, dry and roasty. Good beer.

Sampling a cellar temp 16 oz can poured into my snifter. The beer was part of a trade recently.
Beer pours jet black into my glass with a creamy beige head foaming up about 1 cm after a gentle pour. This foam gradually fades to a thin edge layer and one large island in the center of my glass. the beer does leave dense lattice on my glass after each sip.
The aroma is very roasty with a dry roast coffee character and some high% cacao notes mixing. There is also a bit of a dark fruit character, raisin or plum note buried. No hop presence and not boozy either even with the 9% ABV.
First sip reveals a medium to thicker body with smooth texture and very fine prickly carbonation. The bubbles stab my palate on each mouthful.
Flavor is similar to the nose with roasted notes dominating and almost going to a burnt wood note here. SOMe dark chocolate and coffee grounds again, but no fruitiness. I also never find any lactose or sweetness from this milk stout. HOps are absent and the ABV is only faintly present on the swallow with just a little bite.
This is a decent big beer, but the flavor is a little more one dimensional than I would like to see. That being said I am enjoying it, worth a shot if you like dark roasty brews.

1 pint can, unable to determine age.

Very dark not completely opaque brown with ruby highlights against light. Tan head that stays just the right amount of time, and nice lace.

Nose has lactosey soft roasted notes, bitter chocolate, just a ghost of alcohol.

Taste adds coffee bean style red berry notes, little of actual sweetness is evident, there is an oily part lingering on top of your tongue of an otherwise quite agile mouthfeel. The berries seem to get almost perfumey and the oil soapy as the beer warms up. Chocolate becomes the dominant flavour over time. Alcohol rises to one's palate as the temperature increases. But not really disturbingly.

Surprisingly dry and fruity. It's not like that doesn't work up to a point.. just I feel like this is like a slightly off Black IPA where the ingredient flavours don't quite come together, just in the imperial milk stout context.

Pours a turbid mahogany with a thumb+ of caramel colored head. Zero head retention & lacing

S: Sweet cream, iron & a little plum

T: Follows the nose, dry with roastyness and faint raisin notes up front. Roastyness, a touch of iron & faint coffee & cream notes as this warms. Finishes dry with a slight creamy sweetness, roasty & a touch of woodyness

MF: Medium body, creamy carbonation. Body thins as this warms

ABV is well disguised, but expected better flavor

Look: It pours black with a brown head. Head retention is excellent.

Smell: It has some sweet notes with medium roast. There is a low chocolate and vanilla note in the background.

Taste: It has a coffee and roast flavor that has a bit of sweetness to it. There are some dark fruit that are most like plums.

Feel: It is quite creamy and has a medium full body. The sweetness lasts in the finish which is counterbalance with a dry impression.

Overall, a stout that is sweet without being overbearing and has a quite good flavor profile.

16 oz can

Pours opaque black, light tan head dissipates to a lacing.

Aroma of cocoa, brown sugar, biscuit, toffee and cream.

Flavor is of brown sugar, mesquite, toast, coffee and cocoa with hints of molasses and oats.

Full body, tingly carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Pretty good stout. Flavor is good. Goes down slow. Worth a try.

i dont totally understand the name and the process on this one, i dont believe its barrel aged, perhaps the malts undergo some sort of ageing the way meat might, to develop flavor and decompose a little bit or something, not totally sure, and i cant find much information about it, so ill let it be and just enjoy the beer for what it is, and that is a very well made and highly compelling robust stout, big on the dark earthy malts, lots of roasted barley, some smoke and peat notes, espresso, black pepper, and molasses. i like it being on the drier side, seems impossible with all this body but its true, not sugary in the least in conclusion, just tons of depth here. the weight is nice, its wintery for sure, the smoke kind of warms me and as the beer comes up in temperature i get anise and licorice way in the back, maybe burnt wood, scotch, its awesome. its a pretty dense drink, in that more than one can would be a big dose of this, but the alcohol isnt an issue at all, it stays way in the back. its neat to see this malt in this context, id love to see it in a lighter beer though too without the bitter and roast, what exactly does dry ageing do for it i have to wonder. in any event, this is just an expert stout, even if the name and process come across as a gimmick, the beer is more than good enough to allow for that, as is almost always the case with evil twin. worth the money, i loved this.

16oz can poured into a tulip

A- pours deep black in color with a two-finger creamy khaki head that has great retention after the pour

S- grainy roasted malt on the nose gives notes of chocolate, char, coffee, freshly spent grain, anise and some slightly woody aromas. Undertones of milk sugars adds a vanilla note

T- roasted grains gives notes of chocolate, bread crust, charred wood, anise & espresso. Mid-palate gives just a hint of milk sugars that adds a sweet creamy note. The finish gives a bold roasted malt flavor that linger long after the finish, with coffee and milk sugars

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel that continues into the finish

O- simple, yet big and bold, with strong roasted malty notes throughout

That's a big milk/sweet stout, so I poured a tulip.
The appearance was a pure dark black color with an eggshell white foamy head softly dissipating. Messy lace wound around my glass.
The aroma had a soft sweet woody milk chocolate glazed cake-like/fudge character bumping fists with some dark chocolate bitterness and a light touch of marshmallow/vanilla sweetness.
The flavor leads with the sweetness to end up becoming more balanced with some roastiness and bitterness as some qualities of anise, coffee bean dryness, and the blend of milk and dark chocolates. Aftertastes of milk chocolate, marshmallow, fudge and wood spice.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied with a fair sipping quality about it. Wood spice harshness invades slightly, not bothersome. Carbonation felt good. ABV seemed appropriate. Finish of wood spice harshness, milk chocolate, semi-sticky marshmallow and a light touch of vanilla.
Overall, nicely done imperial stout, exciting and enamoring enough to come back to.

16 ounce can, no dating that I noticed but the stamp on the bottom says Batch #001, 11:09. Served in a snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with maybe a half inch tan head that stuck around a little while. There's also a good amount of lacing. The brew smells like roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, coffee, wood, cream and some dark fruit. I think the taste is similar to the aroma, but there's also some herbal, licorice, burnt/charred and dark bready flavors noticeable too. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, it's smooth and slick with a moderate amount of carbonation. Easy enough to drink. I think it's a good all around brew, certainly worth trying. I know I wouldn't mind buying this one again!

Aroma is chocolate, dark/roasted malts and mild wood. The flavor is chocolate, roasted malts, mild wood/fruit and an acidic/slightly sour/dryish finish.

Batch #001. 16oz can poured into a tulip. Pours almost black with a nice creamy khaki head that falls leaving great retention and sticky lacing. The aromas are malt forward. Milk chocolate is there along with some marshmallow. The flavors basically follow the nose for the most part. More chocolate and marshmallows. Mild and subtle hints of coffee. Some sugar. Decent bitterness. It's slightly sweet, but nothing cloying or over the top. Strong malt backbone. It finishes dry for the most part. Mild warmth in the finish, but the alcohol is ultimately well hidden. Mouthfeel is full-bodied with moderate carbonation. It's fluffy, slightly creamy and velvety, smooth and ultimately dangerously drinkable.

This is a pretty solid stout. It's like a mixture of a Sweet/Milk Stout and an Irish Dry Stout. It might not be "mind blowing", but it's still simply good stuff. The craftsmanship is on point and takes this one to the next level. Not bad at all. It's enjoyable and fun to drink.
