BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Evil Twin Brewing
New York, United States
eviltwin.dk

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.00%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into the higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all -- it must taste rare!

I guess I wouldn't be the first to call this sacrilicious?

This is just a very well executed, decadently satisfying big 'ol stout. Lots of fudge-y chocolate, boozy roasted cocoa, and charred molasses. I found some berry notes as well. 16 ounces is a lot for a beer like this, but I'll muddle through somehow.

Black as motor oil, with a similar mouth feel- but in a good way. A little bit like drinking a s-more: smoky, chocolaty, a little burnt. I dream about this beer.

Looks great, smells good and has an excellent mouthfeel but I can't get past the burnt soy sauce aftertase which is not pleasant. Was really hoping for more from Evil Twin on this one. Does not live up to the hype for me...

Look: pitch black, minimal tan head.

Smell: boozy, alcohol, campfire. Not a lot in the way of aroma.

Taste: burnt molasses, espresso, bittersweet chocolate, anise, very tasty.

Feel: viscous, creamy, oily, full bodied.

Overall: great beer, very roasty, lots of burnt flavors, excellent base for their variants, which I like more than this base beer, but I enjoyed this a lot,

A spectacularly​ inky black liquid; a fruity chocolate coffee maple smell and taste. I love the feel, thick and creamy but overall it is way too sweet for my liking. A fantastic stout if you like dark and sugary.

Here comes the expensive beer. Thanks corpulent. Pours black. Tan head, 1/2". Aroma of chocolate and coffee.

A mix of sugar, dark fruit, bitterness, roasted malt, fudgy chocolate going on in the taste department. Hides the alcohol pretty well, but then sugar bombs tend to do that. Ultimately, this is one of those big ass stouts with all kinds of adjunct feels to it. Of course, its Evil Twin so its significantly more expensive than your more local option for such a beer. Its a good beer, make no mistake. Problem is, I bet there are several examples in whatever region you are, that are just as good and close to half the price.

Highly anticipated 650 ml bomber from the 2015 vintage. The thick viscous stout pours a murky opaque black brown topped off with the slightest of tan coloured froth. Teh aromas are not as overwhelming as expected, but there are distinct notes of coffee, dried fruits lending it a certain boozy character almost like a bourbon barrel-aged stout,as well as caramel. The tastes only partially follow the nose, as there are more distinct notes of dark chocolates and dried fruits, and less of the coffee and roasted malts, which made it sweeter. Has an oily and slick mouthfeel, viscous and heavyweight, coating every nook and cranny in the mouth.
