This otherwise classic stout adds elements of smoky cigar, and while not too heavy on that front, is certainly making for a savory brew with a thick body.

On the hunt for the most savory stout possible, the brewers at Evil Twin allow their imagination to go to steak. Dry aging barley malt to bring out natural oxidation and that quintessential sherry tone is sure to give their imperial stout those savory intangibles that you just can't quite put your finger on.

It's black. No way around it, its just black. A thick and luscious coat of the glass comes with a gentle swirl, building a creamy mocha froth along the way. Robust, rich and in celebration of all-things-burnt, the carbonized char of vegetation sends an overcast across sweeter, savory, or fruitier nuances. But as the dark ale embarks upon the early palate, 90 Days Dry Aged Stout sends a brown sugar, molasses and toffee maltiness onto the tastebuds.

Lavishly malted, the sweetness is strong and persistent, relenting only to the strong char that eventually engulfs the middle palate as well. Smoldering embers bring a mesquite smokiness to emphasize the savory intent while nuanced fruits of grape, fig, date and cherry bring about a mild vinous spice and a madeira ester profile. Bunt toast, espresso and scorched vegetation round out the stronger flavors while baker's chocolate and hints of teriyaki play delicately underneath.

Full bodied and nearly marshmallowy, the beer's strong carbonated presence highlights the spice of char and booze, and limiting the sweeter and more savory tones. A long and roasty aftertaste eventually leave a trail of ash, peppercorn and vodka on the finish.

A "Milk Stout brewed with dry aged malt" with an imperial ABV at 9%, the nice roasty dry aged malts used are so smooth that I assume milk sugar/lactose helped make the body feel creamy and milky.

Pours black with hints of brown at the edges, with a 2 finger thick tan/brown colored head that faded in average time and left excellent camouflage patterned foamy lacing clinging to the glass along with a layer around the rim on top. Smells of roasted malts, burnt coffee grinds, mineral water, sheet metal, chocolate, faint caramel, soy sauce and smoked malts. Somehow this had a sweetness to it, which gave nice balance to the nose.

Flavor is very much like the nose with roasted malts, burnt coffee grinds, bakers chocolate, mineral water, sheet metal, light piney notes, dark chocolate, brownie batter, charred wood, soy sauce, hints of dark fruit, ash and smoked malts. It's smoky, but like the nose has a sweetness which must be from the milk sugar/lactose. It was very easy drinking, hiding the ABV perfectly, and a tasty, roasty stout that I'd definitely have again.
