16 oz. can Batch #001

Pours foggy hazy maroon amber red-brown with a creamy frothy light khaki colored head. Smells like huge roasted espresso coffee, some grapefruit citrus fruits, toast, caramel, brown sugar, some molasses, with mild pine and floral earthy grass. Tastes like acidic grapefruit citrus, some roasted espresso coffee beans, toasted malts, caramel, brown sugar, molasses, with dank pine and floral earthy grass. Feels medium bodied, thick and creamy with low carbonation. Overall a nice hoppy brown ale with coffee.

Poured from a 16 oz. can into a chalice.

Appearance: Pours a deep brownish amber with a moderate amount of bubbles. Big two finger light tan head which settles into a thin creamy patch.

Smell: A roasty, hoppy, and fairly sweet malt driven aroma with a scent of coffee, toast, and citrus. Roasted malt with a scent of coffee beans, chocolate, toast, biscuit, grains, toffee, caramel, and hazelnuts with some yeast. Citrus hop hints of orange and lemon. Subtle hints of spice. Sweet hints of brown sugar. A very solid aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a roasty, hoppy, and fairly sweet malt forward taste with notes of coffee, toast, and citrus. Roasted barley malt with notes of coffee beans, chocolate, biscuit, toast, grains, hazelnuts, caramel, and toffee with some yeast. Some citrus hop notes of orange peel and lemon. Sweet notes of brown sugar. Also some subtle notes of grass and spice. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, and somewhat oily with a drying finish.

Overall: A very good take on a coffee infused Brown ale. Good coffee bean and nut flavor with a nice touch of hops.

A brown ale brewed with coffee, Wet Dream is a new can from Evil Twin's operation out of Two Roads in Stratford, CT. Seems as though this actually isn't a new beer, but a rebrew of something of a collaboration with The Trappist out of CA from several years ago. Interesting. Nevertheless, the can looks nice and the concept is solid. Hoping to see more coffee browns soon actually, as some that I've had recently have been much more fitting to coffee's bright acidity and complexity than to the acrid and roasty, bitter flavors often highlighted when the base beer to which it's added is a porter or stout.

Pours a hazy, deep chestnut color with a solidly-built ecru head that laces spottily. Similarly-hazed surface with wisps of smoky foam retaining for a while. Nice looking.

Nose is very interesting with definite citric acidity, sandalwood, cedar, toffee and roasted coffee beans. Biscuity, heavy malt backbone is apparent though there's definitely some unique hoppy notes here too, playing well with the coffee addition. A bit ashy and maybe even tobacco-like as well at times. Smells awesome, actually. I feel that these days, some well-utilized adjuncts may be all that's really necessary to rekindle the beer fan's love of brown ales. This seems like it may have one of the best marriages of base beer and adjunct in a brown ale base that I've had of late.

Flavor is vibrant and bright, belying the beer's deep brown color: lots of chewy biscuity malt, brown bread and English toffee mingling with bright acidic notes of grapefruit and Meyer lemon. Earthy, spicy coffee comes across close to the finish where it helps dry out the palate from the well-constructed maltiness present in the first half of each sip. The tannic notes from the nose translate into the conclusion on the palate with woodsy and herbal notes helping to round everything out.

Feel is rather smooth and round with moderate, fitting carbonation that helps maintain a good level of drinkability. Pretty creamy despite some sharp notes of hoppy/coffee acidity. Everything mingles well here and this drinks very unique and enjoyable. I should probably get more of this while it lasts.

This is a good brown ale, the coffee gives it some complexity. I poured it into a stout glass, and it had about a 3/4 inch head. The beer was not thick, but also not to thin. It had a good finish. This is definitely a beer that is a "more than 1" a night beer, unlike some of Evil Twins other stuff.

From the bottom of the can: "Batch #002 13:23"

Appearance: It is a dark brown colored beer that I can't see through. At the edges there are some dark red-brown. The head is a thick and creamy textured with an eggshell and tobacco stained white color. Good retention and lacing.

Aroma: It has an interesting hop aroma mixed with a spicy coffee aroma. It is a bit earthy too. The great thing about this beer is that I can smell hops in the beer through the strong aroma of coffee. There is a bit of a pipe tobacco aroma too. It's fantastic.

Taste: The beer has this great coffee flavor that tastes very fresh and strong. There is a woody character to the beer as well. A grain flavor comes through which adds quite a bit of character to the beer.

Mouthfeel: It has a good carbonation level. Bitterness is fairly high in this beer which isn't a bad thing but it is important to note. The body does feel a bit thin.

Overall: It is a really cool beer. The hoppy aromas, flavors, and bitterness really works well with coffee and wrapping it all up in a brown ale seems to just be the right choice. The beer is great and I would drink it again. If you enjoy coffee then I would highly recommend it. My favorite thing about the beer is that it is not just a one-trick pony. It gives you enough coffee, hops, and even some grain flavor to keep you interested. I would pick it up again.

On-tap at the Local Taphouse in Sydney as part of their Scandinavian Tap Makeover.

Pours a deep red-hued black, but with minimal haze to the light shines through the body, revealing its true colour. Body is light, but chewy, giving a hint of thickness. Pale brown head forms a big, persistent and fluffy crown that leaves amazing lacing. Carbonation is fine and fast-moving. Looks great.

Nose is also excellent: deep roasted character, leavened to a pleasant nuttiness. Liquorice sweetness comes through with hints of Mexican rice and cacao: molé, perhaps. It's really lovely stuff.

Light entry on the front palate, with a prickle of aniseed, before toasty nuts, popcorn and smoked almonds come through, all wrapped up in a comforting sweetness. On the back, this develops to a dark chocolate note with some woody overtones. It's very good indeed. The only problem is that it cleans out pretty quickly on the back: perhaps a bit more residual body would let this cling on for longer. Although, having it finish dry possibly aids the drinkability.

Lighter in the feel than I expected, but it still works pretty well.

Solid, smooth, delicious. Yep, this was great stuff. Of the Scandi beers on tap during the makeover, I'm pretty sure this was my pick.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

This beer pours a dark brown color with a small but well sustained head. The aroma is a mix of fresh ground coffee, chicory, licorice, hazelnut, and just a touch of burnt citrus. The The flavor leads with a good deal of very fresh coffee, followed by dark chocolate, chicory, mild cinnamon, and at the end a resiny and burnt citrus character. The mouthfeel is quite light and thin, very refreshing combined with the coffee. Overall this is not a wow your socks off kind of brew, but is is really solid and damn tasty. The mouthfeel is a bit lighter than I prefer in a brown ale, but it works here to make a refreshign beer with a gestalt of iced coffee. The additional hop notes at the end lend a layer of complexity to the beer than is very enjoyable.

Evil Brown. This is an exquisite brown ale.

This thing looks run of the mill. Nice brown. The aroma is distinctly roasty and hoppy. Nice and bitter smelling.

The taste is sublime. Drier than most, with loads of bitterness cutting over the malts. This is not candy, it is, as the Kingons would say, a drink for warriors. But not those from Golden State).

I have to get more of this.

A - Served a cloudy brown color with a finger-plus of frothy tannish head atop. The head fades down slowly revealing lots of lace in the process.

S - Aroma is a mix of sweet, light toasted caramel malts and some sharp coffee and citrus elements jumping out.

T - Starts off with a kick of espresso flavor that starts to mellow out a bit right away. There is a nice balance provided by the sweet lightly toasted caramel malts. Through the middle, the malt flavor gets a bit richer and deeper with some citrus hops coming through. The finish is a mix of sweetness and some coffee flavor and bitterness that linger.

M - Medium-full bodied with moderate carbonation. Feels smooth and just a bit creamy as well.

D - Very drinkable. The balance here is quite nice and it is a very interesting take on the brown ale style. The coffee and hops really worked well and felt really incorporated into the beer.

500ml bottle poured into tulip 10/2/13

A the darkest brown liquid with a two finger dark mocha head that ever so slowly falls to a thick film that leaves a few partial rings followed by random patches

S piney citric hops hit my nose first and I wasn't expecting that but its most welcome, some wet tea bag, coco, and cold coffee work well together.

T coffees stronger in the mouth with slightly less of the piney citric hops I was loving on the nose, less still leaves a fair bit though. Some nutty toffee added to the nose but I preferred the smell

M a mild bitter bite and creams up nicely and feels fairly full as a result, coffee and dark bread crust on the finish

O a nice hopped up Brown infused with coffee works well in this case, a fair bit going on and I'm a little surprised this one doesn't have a higher rating

pretty solid brew and a nice surprise for me, I wasn't expecting a hop blast and I normally don't love hops and coffee mixed together but it works well here

Pours a dark brown, with a fair bit of colour up to the light; off-white head. Decent enough.

Lots of coffee on the nose. Spicy, dark and roasty. Bit of sweetness as well. Really nice coffee-tinged nose, about the nicest I've seen.

Taste is sweeter, quite toffee-esque with roasty notes, some carob, rubber and sprucey pine needle notes. Pleasant; not too heavy on the coffee. Little spicy bitterness on the back. Nice.

Foamy texture, not bad. A little bit of boozey warmth on the back.

Nice brown ale, roasty but drinkable.

real cool they are putting this one in pint cans now, its a nice beer too. dark for a brown, not hoppy in the least, definitely more in the english tradition, although there isnt much yeast flavor coming through. nice depth of grain here, roasty and chocolate driven, dramatic caramelization and almost burnt tasting flavor to it, with some nice fluffy body, maybe some oats in it, but just a much richer and darker spectrum than we are used to in the style. the coffee is blended in nicely, but this isnt as coffee forward as i expected it to be, as much an accent flavor as anything, bitter and sharp, lightens the body a little bit, has a little caffeine kick to it, but really isnt any deeper or darker on the low end than the grain already is. i think the bitterness is great, and that roasty quality in a brown instead of a porter or stout is really nice, but i would like this better with a more intense coffee flavor. love the feel though, big surging carbonation keeps this darker brew feeling nice and lively, and the finish is long and nuanced, but still refreshing. best when ice cold. not cheap, but worth it i think.

Can poured into a BarrelHouse Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours slightly hazy mahogany brown with a frothy tan head that settles to a firm layer than hangs around and leaves some very nice lacing.

S: Toasty bready malt, hazelnut, espresso, citrus, pine, light fruity notes, and a little toffee sweetness.

T: Toasty malt, nice roasty faintly smokey espresso, earthy, hazelnut, brightened up with some pine, citrus and light fruity notes, lemon, grapefruit zest, peach, plum, a hint of passion fruit, and a little toffee sweetness.

M: Medium body, moderate carbonation.

O: Very enjoyable brown ale that's got my inner homebrewer excited to try to make something similar.

500ml bottle, 6.9% ABV, and a different label. Made with gourmet beans from the Coffee Collective in Copenhagen.

This beer pours a very dark red-tinted brown hue, with three fingers of densely foamy, rocky beige head, which leaves some broad, droopy, honeycomb-pocked swaths of lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of bitter piney, citrusy hops, immediately inundated with equally tangy, dry, earthy, roasted coffee grounds, a mild nutty caramel malt, and further leafy, herbal liqueur notes. The taste is more malty up front, the lightly toasted bready, nutty caramel character ceding a little less territory this time, as aided by a burgeoning baker's chocolate sweetness, though the zingy citrus rind, pine resin, and bitter, earthy coffeehouse essences still push their agenda to the limit. A wee booze warming tugs at the fraying corners.

The carbonation is quite tame, though the wee bubbles do well to keep things moving along, the body a decent medium-full weight, and smooth with that lingering hop bite caveat. It finishes off-dry, the cocoa/caramel/nut liquor malt still fending off a prominent incursion from a seemingly regrouped hop contingent.

A pretty hefty brown ale, lots going on, and I do like that the coffee notes, so pungent up front, wane at a slow, almost unnoticeable pace, until you can't even tell that they've somehow been (mostly) replaced by an equally implacable chocolate aura. Oh, and the hops - they keep things honest with extreme prejudice.

Pours a sexy brown like a medium roasted coffee bean with a touch of orange in it. Looks hazy and I never really could say clear. There's a huge whiff of coffee at first. then that settles pretty mild and pretty deep into the beer. Spice and lots of it. Its the same kind as in Southern Tiers German pils from last week and I like it on this nose paired with some sweet earth and hop herbal. Cocoa and a light sweet malt aroma. Nutty toasty and mild. Also there is very light citrus presence all around .

Drinks smoothly and very lightly with a medium malt body. It's just sweet so it's a delicate sweetness on a robust malt to take the coffee.Nuts and their bitter backnote, coffee and it's mild but totally blended . A light sweet cocoa and faintly bitter. A light fruit backnote develops as the beer warms in the nose and on the palate but it is terribly faint. Carbonation is moderate.

This beer had some delicate features to it that made it very pleasantly complex.The finish is a solid moderate hops bitter that shows you all kinds of malt in the lingering aftertaste. Excellent.

Pours - Dark brown with thin light brown head good lacing.

Smell - I am not really getting as much coffee as expected, not really any in the smell. I am getting a little citrus and some spices. Roasted malts as well.

Taste - I like the taste but there is much more citrus and spice than coffee, by reading there are espresso beans I was expecting more coffee. there is a little coffee but the flavor is still good.

Feel - Medium body, nice carbonation very smooth feel.

Overall - While this is not what I was expecting it is still very good.

A: The beer is very dark brown in color and appears black when viewed from afar - traces of red are visible near the edge of the glass. It poured with a quarter finger high tan head that died down a bit, but consistently left a thin head covering the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of brown and roasted malts plus pine resin and citrusy hops are present in the nose.
T: The taste very much follows the smell and has a light to moderate amount of bitterness from the hops.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: I found this brown ale to be quite interesting because its quite hoppy, which is even more impressive since it was aged for 13 months. It's definitely quite interesting.

16 fl oz. can, Batch #001 printed on the bottom of the can. My first tall boy can from Evil Twin; acquired a single can of this stuff from the local bottle shop. "Brown Ale Brewed With Coffee".

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - It pours a sort of chestnut-ruby reddish-brown body, with some sediment visible, and about a finger and a half of frothy khaki-tan head that lingers a while, and leaves some okay spotty lacing. Appears soft and fluffy, and adequately carbonated. Looks nice.

S - The aroma is somewhat soft. Airy, fluffy, & creamy, with notes of caramel, toffee, cream, oats, brown malts, slight mustiness, & a fresh earthy herbal hop backing, lightly oily / piney / resinous. Coffee? Notes of light chocolate, coffee beans, & roast only become more apparent as the beer warms. Not overt or obvious. Aroma is pleasant, but i get more hops & citrus than coffee.

T - Taste follows the nose: Smooth, crisp, creamy, earthy, herbal, oily, piney, & resinous, with notes of smooth citrus pith & hop bitterness. Again, there is way more hops in this than there is coffee. Notes of dark barley malt roast are apparent on the back end, but any actual coffee / bean roast is faint, and not entirely obvious.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, creamy, piney, bitter, hoppy, resinous. Tastes much more like a heavily-hopped brown ale than it does a "Brown ale brewed with coffee". Still, it goes down smooth & easy for the modest abv. Very drinkable stuff.

Overall, quite enjoyable as it is, though much more coffee would have been nice. I will stick to Coffee Bender when i need to scratch that coffee-beer fix.

A- Deep red to brown pour from the tallboy into a tulip glass. The crown is thick and frothy and peaks at around two fingers with great retention. A large pillow is permanent and side sheets of lace paint much of the glass.

S- Most of the aroma is derived from the malts and the adjunct coffee beans. Toasted, caramelized, toffee and nutty grains play off the medium roast coffee bean notes.

T- The main duo from the smell carries over and they come in at just about equal amounts creating harmony between the barley and beans. Semi charred roasty coffee blends into toffee, nutty, toasted, light caramel sweets and a touch of cocoa.

MF- Medium bodied with a silky smooth moderate level of carbonation. The texture is mostly puffy and it ends with a mix of hop and coffee bitters.

All around a good Brown Ale that complements the added coffee with harmony and balance. Roast beans play off of toasty, caramel and nutty grains.

Got this in a 16oz can for a dollar fifty at my local beer store. Might go back for a larger quantity!

Look: Dark brown with reddish hues around the edges. Carbonation sticks around for a good half hour to 45 mins, or about as long as I took to drink it.

Smell: Dark roast coffee with slight hints of vanilla.

Taste: Starts out like a slightly bitter but finishes creamy and dark.

Feel: Slight bite on the sip, but like the flavor it ends much smoother.

Overall: Yet another in the long line of successful choices I've made recently. Solid beer I'd definitely return to.

Fairly decent coffee brown slightly green tasting and bitter but mostly smooth with some chocolate malts and brown malts sweetly rounding the finish. Its not as world class as Founders Coffee Brown but it is still worth a try!

A: Pours a clear yet opaque very dark amber in color with some light to moderate amounts of gentle carbonation at the surface of the beer and some deep garnet red highlights. The beer has a half finger tall creamy dark tan head that slowly reduces to

S: Moderate aromas of roasted malts with some hints of nutty malts. Light to moderate aromas of pine and citrus/grapefruit rind hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of roasted malts with some light hints of nutty malts and just a hint of anise/licorice. Moderate flavors of pine and citrus/grapefruit rind hops which contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades but still lingers for a while.

M: Just shy of medium bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation. Light hints of dryness in the finish.

O: Pretty enjoyable and the hops have some really staying power in this beer as it has been sitting around for over a year before I to opening this one. Not sure, I could have more than one of these in a session but it was definitely worth tasting.

Batch #001. 16oz can poured into a tulip. Pours brown with auburn hues; fluffy light khaki head that slowly falls leaving great retention and sticky lacing. There's some sediment/floaties. The aromas have a nice blend of citrus and coffee. There's some toffee and caramel in the mix. Roasted malts are present. The flavors seem to follow the nose. This brown ale has some hop flavor going on. Hints of orange and lemon. The coffee is present. Flavors are bittersweet. Nice coffee flavors in the finish. Subtle hints of hazelnut and almonds in the mix as well. Alcohol goes unnoticed. Mouthfeel is very nice. It's medium-bodied with active carbonation. It's very fluffy and creamy. Very smooth and easy to drink.

This is a very nice brown ale. It's somewhat unique with the contrast between the coffee and citrus notes. Enjoyable stuff.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium to dark mahogany brown with a ruby tint and a nice two finger dark khaki head with good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of dark malt with a hint of toastiness, nuts, mild cocoa and coffee. Flavor follows, with dark malt, iced coffee, hints of cocoa and nuts, finishes with attenuated coffee, dark malt and a mild hop bitterness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. I have found that I like coffee flavors best in dark, rich, full bodied beers like porters and stouts, and often find the coffee a little stark in flavor in lighter malted beers. So this was an opportunity to try something in between, and it only reinforced my preference for full deep malt support. The brown ale body here smells and tastes pretty straight up lightly hopped American brown ale, but the coffee flavors seemed thin and uninteresting, almost like an iced coffee at the end when the ice has melted and the flavors are thinned out. Certainly drinkable and with distinct coffee, but kind of a pedestrian brown ale with light coffee. Looks great, smells good, flavor is good, but not great.
