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!

Poured from fridge temp. Pours jet black with nice light brown head. Nose is chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate! Definitely getting some roasted malts as well. Taste is surprisingly like a typical stout. Burnt wood is upfront, with some tobacco and coffee. Chocolate is there, but not nearly as much as on the nose. Also getting some vanilla and caramel. Mouthfeel is nice and creamy.

16 oz. can

Fat cinnamon brown head with good lacing.
I didn't get much from the nose other than light chewing tobacco.
The robust flavor is rich and full of dark fruit and sugar. The alcohol is somewhat robust as well.
Full bodied with a nice viscosity.
Good sipper.

Big, bold, and bitter. The feel is silky smooth and really nice. The smell is roasty dark malts maybe with some dark chocolate. The taste is well rounded with lingering slight sweetness and firm bitterness. It coats the mouth and hangs around. Great price for a 12% imperial stout. yb

This is a VERY strong beer. Made for sipping for sure. One is all you want, but its pretty good for what it is. Good on a cold winter night.

This stuff is absolutely amazing. If you want an amazing thick stout look no further. Can hardly wait to try the double barrel version. Unbelievable. Yum.

Tasted from can. Pours jet black with dark brown head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate and some caramel. Sticky and sweet mouthfeel. Flavors of coffee, chocolate, molasses, caramel and little peppery taste. Very nice imperial stout.

This is a really enjoyable RIS. Its Black with little head or lacing. Smells like coffee and cocoa. Flavor follows the smell. Bitter chocolate and coffee with little else to muck it up. Some booze, but well covered by the this creaminess of the beer. Nice thick beer, you can see the mouthfeel lol. Looks like motor oil the way it pours. Great beer, a real treat. Went well with a piece of fudge!

I wanted to love this stout. Like many stouts out there, it's a dark brown with tan head that dissipates to just a light film rather quickly. Nice mouth-feel due to some viscosity. The nose is a light coffee and alcohol. I get coffee and chocolate flavors, but especially coffee. The problem is the strong alcohol taste and lack of depth. The overall flavor profile would probably benefit from some barrel aging. I drank it slowly over an hour and the coffee flavor seemed to lessen. Chocolate increased. In the end, though, it reminded me of a good but young wine that needed some mellowing.
