Deep roasted malt and coffee in the aroma. Taste leaves a bit to be desired. A taste that I can best describe as overripe berries comes through, almost as if the sugars have been eaten by the wrong bacteria, also a bit of a metallic taste as well. I'm sure theres a more technical term for these off flavors that I need to research a bit. Not bad but not good for the price at all.

Look: thick, black and viscous. A dark brown head forms when poured. Some lacing on the glass.
Smell: molasses, chocolate, and a hint of vanilla and dark fruits like figs and blackberries
Taste: tons of molasses, maple syrup, chocolate, dark fruits, and vanilla flavors. Pretty great.
Feel: creamy, thick, and chewy.
Overall: a sweeter variation on an RIS, but an excellent variation.

Jet black with a brown head that dissipated quickly

Smells like vanilla, brown sugar and dark fruits

Tastes like toasted malts with the PERFECT amount of vanilla and brown sugar sweetness. sweet Jebus this is good.

Mf- alittle thin for a stout but medium to heavy with some carbonation

Over-best sweet stout I've had. Evil Twin is an underrated brewery with awesome beers. Try it.

An above-average American Double Stout. Here goes:

A: Good. Pours a very thick, dark black. The head and lacing are quite good, but the head dissipates rather quickly.

S: Very mild coffee and dark chocolate - these give way to lots of dark fruit, in particular blackberry and prunes. The dark fruit is far more prominent, however.

T: Very sweet and sugary - almost entirely dark fruit. Real emphasis on the sweet fruits - tons of berries and figs. Good, just wish there were more dark chocolate flavors.

F: Thick and sweet; nothing special, however.

O: A good beer.

fruit on the nose... thin but syrup-y pour, minimal head (like my love-life anymore...); truly smells like an adjunct-type of production..... definitely some 'metallic' in this.... a bit sweet; and may i say amazingly sweet but not gaggingly for such a high abv.... cheap-kind-of after taste but still a decent product. maybe why this was only $3.99???

Beautiful syrup pour with slight khaki head and spots of lacing. Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, and a smokey ash upfront on the nose. Taste follows with the booze and molasses coming through. Slick, thick mouthfeel coating the palate wonderfully. Another great stout by Evil Twin that I would have again!

L - pitch black, looks thin, nice golden foam layers the top
S - dark coffee, metallic
T - Full metal jacket! Just too much metal, burnt metal, charred coffee, just not my jam
F - medium/light body
O - not something I'll seek out again - I fee like my review was overly negative, it was just underwhelming

12oz bottle served in a snifter. Bottle date is 05/2015

Appearance: thick syrup, jet black, rich and menacing with a thick brown head that rode the glass down.

Nose: rich chocolate and tootsie roll, slight coffee, rich and fruity

Taste: molasses, maple syrup, chocolate, toasted oak, slightly fruity

Wow! Rich and decadent. I must have more of this in my cellar.
