Look: Black; big tan head; intense lacing / glass glimmers
Smell: The smell is actually a bit subdued for such a big dark beer. Maybe
a bit of earthiness, along with the more forward vinous grape notes.

Taste: Sweet vinous fruit upfront that forwards into some booze and
bitterness.

Feel: Bit of a peppery booze burn in this one, but aside from the heat,
the mouthfeel is smooth and oily.

Overall: Like most Evil Twin dark brews, a big over the top beer. Slightly
different from ET's Soft Dookie, with perhaps more earthiness and booze
present. A fun / unique tasting beer.

Bought a bottle at the Beer Shop in East Longmeadow. Beer pours with a black appearance with a very thin head around the glass. The aromas include chocolate, coffee, and light dark fruit. Taste includes a generally sweet flavor with flavors that include, but not limited too, mocha espresso and cherries. Good body for this drink; really creamy with a light carbonation. Overall, pretty good flavors to this drink.

Bottled 10/23/13

12oz bottle poured into a snifter. The aroma is sweet roasted malts, cocoa, and molasses. The taste like the aroma has a high level of sweetness with a roasty bittersweet finish. Overall, a solid stout from Evil Twin.

From bottle, pours pitch black with a small tan head that slowly disapates to a small ring. Aroma chocolate, roasted malts, coffee. Taste dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla. Do get a slight warming after each sip. Very nice.
