16oz can poured into a snifter

A- pours thick and jet black with a one-finger foamy dark brown head that reduces to leave nothing behind

S- huge rum aroma up front, with notes of black strap molasses, burnt brown sugar, ripe banana, coconut, booze soaked raisins and figs, a hint of oak. Undertones of chocolate and roast

T- as with the nose, huge rum barrel notes dominate up front; black strap molasses, brown sugar, cane sugar, banana and a complimenting wet oak. Mid palate brings out a bold chocolate note with a hint of coffee, toffee and burnt caramel. The finish is bold and boozy, with the barrel sticking around long after on the linger

M- medium body with moderate carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel that continues into a warming, boozy finish

O- big, bold and boozy. A sipper, and a fine one, at that.

16 ounce can, no dating that I noticed on it. Big thanks to Brutaltruth for this brew! Served in a chalice, the beer pours dark brown/black with about an inch tan head after a hard pour. Head didn't stay around for too long, and there's a small amount of lacing. I like the aroma, the brew smells like dark fruit, molasses, chocolate, rum, vanilla and roasted malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some brown/sugar, coffee, oak and earthy flavors. It's a little boozy but doesn't seem like it's 17.5% either. Mouthfeel/body is full, it's slick, creamy and a bit syrupy with a moderate amount of carbonation. I thought this was pretty good, definitely worth trying if you're into bigger stouts!

Served in a snifter from the can.

Appearance: ridiculously thick motor oil resembling body which looks like chocolate syrup pouring from the can. The head is subtle coming off a dark tan but seriously does not rise no more than 3 mm off the body.

Smell: has a liqueur type of aroma which feels a lot like molasses and heavy heavy heavy dark chocolate.

Taste: ridiculously rich and chocolate Plus a fine spirit mixed with cacao, molasses and hints of brown sugar.

Mouth: ridiculously thick body with a soft carbonation comes off very very sticky.

Overall: this seriously reminds me of evil twins Northern barrel each series from ETNYC. Not the same beer but seriously could be related at least at the very minimum the same base. Salud!

L: Jet black color, minimal brown head, no lacing, no carbonation.

S: Oak, alcohol, chocolate, sweet. Awesome!

T: Oak, alcohol, chocolate, sweet. Superb!

F: Full bodied, tons of flavor. A slow sipper but smoooooth. Surprisingly drinkable for this ABV!

O: Excellent hardcore imperial stout. Bravo!

From the can in a snifter. This monster pours a pitch black
with a modest head of brown foam that settles to a thin ring
with subtle lacing. Nose of bourbon, dark chocolate, char, faint
oak, vanilla, brulee, dark coffee, and dark fruit notes. Flavors
knock it out of the park with dark cocoa, dark coffee, mellow
bourbon, dark brown sugars, moderate char, brulee, blueberry,
moderate oak, and vanilla cream. Nice mouth feel; full body, smooth,
slick, coating, rich, low carbonation, and a boozy warming
finish.

Overall----phew....what a brew!

Cheers

Absolutely incredible. Only downside is drinking this regularly, will make it hard to enjoy "normal" beers.

Pitch black, a bit too sweet, definitely a sipper. Delicious.

Updated after next can to full 5.
Outstanding.

Wow! I had the "Dry Aged" about a month ago, and now I get to have the "Dry Aged" - "Barrel Aged." Sounds like a lot aging going on. It tastes well aged too.

This thing is black and pretty flat looking. I got some on me and washed it off before it started to give me a Trump bottle tan. The smell is extremely boozy. Perhaps as boozy as any. BOAT (booziest of all time). But there's a lot of malty smell too. The taste is sweet (of course) and boozy (of course). It sits all thick and syrupy on the tongue. You are a fool if you don't swish every sip around your mouth. Finally, it lingers long and boozy, roasty, chocolatey (?) or coffee, all super concentrated. All very welcome. What a pleasure.

Highly recommended. If you see Evil Twin stouts, you buy them. Got it?

This damn thing is boozy. That’s all I have to say. The smell is straight bourbon with some wood and chocolate undertones. Taste follows suit but with some raisin and burnt coffee. THIS THING IS BOOZY. That’s the highlight. It’s thick. Almost red in color. Strong whiskey flavors over score the entire bill. Love it or hate it. For me personally, it was a bit much. I saved half for tomorrow.

Tremendous. Evil twin has brewed a lot of stouts over the years and this might be the best one I can remember. Massive and still really drinkable and full of intensely layered flavors. Went back to buy more of these.
