12 oz. bottle, Batch 006. Poured into Kane tulip glass.

L: Pitch black, no light through. Small head, not much retention. No lacing, just a thin ring and partial cap.

S: Dark fruits, roasted malts and some anise.

T: All is very dark in this, perhaps representing the name nicely. Dark coffee. Dark fruits. Dark licorice. A little bit of heat on the finish. Not picking up any of the sweetness others have.

F: Medium-bodied, not as thick as you might expect and perhaps a bit less than desirable. Not much in the way of carbonation. Construction is decent. Balance pretty good, but most top brewers these days are able to hide this level of heat.

O: It's a bit disappointing only because I expect a lot out of Evil Twin. Certainly well above average and innovative and creative in its own right, but the execution isn't quite there.

Pitch black with a finger of rusty chocolate milk head.

Smells of tar, black liquorice, liquorice all sorts, oily resin, and light fruity notes.

Lightly sweet, coffee, dark chocolate, light, sweet notes. Waffle ice cream cone. Its like chocolate ice cream in a waffle cone.

Thick but smooth body, Light carbonation.

Got online, drinking New Years Eve, 2016, in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Really good, like the ice cream qualities

This was another wonderful stout/porter from Eviltwin Brewery. What stood out with this stout was the wonderful sweetness from the dark fruits, carmel and molasses with the imperial bitterness. This breeery is climing up the ranks of my favorites.
