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!

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

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.

A: poured into a snifter to a black beer topped by a dense finger and a half of dark tan head that fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass with minimal lacing
S: Smells of roasted malts, bitter dark chocolate and coffee
T: Taste is big and roasty with some molasses like notes, bitter dark chocolate, fudge brownies, and some light coffee. Swallow is more chocolate and coffee with some roasted malts, burnt sugar and some hints of charred wood.
M: This beer is fairly heavy on that palate with a slightly silky mouthfeel. Carbonation is low yet adequate while the beer has a drying finish from the ABV.
O: Overall this is a really good beer with some nice flavors and complexity. It definitely brings the noise and it also hides the ABV well. Definitely one to use as a benchmark for the style and well worth a try.

Jet black thick liquid settles with a thin tan head. Nose had burnt malt with subtle chocolate and not much else. Taste brought the roasted Malts with chocolate, hints of l caramel, maybe some molasses, and vanilla. The alcohol is somewhat hidden but it's there. I don't believe it takes away from the beer at all. The beer is thick and coating! This is easily to recommend as I will purchase more if I see it.

16 oz. can that made its way all the way to Blackbeard's Crafts on Sawtelle in West LA. I was surprised to find it here! Around $7 for a single can... they gather value as they cross the Rockies.
Pours jet black and looks oily and creamy at the same time, with a thin tan head that quickly dissipates. Not too aromatic--I was expecting more. Subtle coffee, molasses and chocolate on the nose. It brings more to the table with the taste, which is anchored heavily in sweet creamy concentrated coffee, like drinking a mocha, but with a strong presence of molasses, chocolate, and nuttiness and some vanilla and syrupy burnt caramel and toasted malts. A bitterness sets in at the back of the throat that seems to owe more to burnt malt than hops. Sweetness reenters on the finish. Feels thick and palate coating, creamy. Alcohol is well hidden at 12%.
Overall it has all of the components of a big world class imperial stout, but it somehow doesn't quite deliver when I compare it to AleSmith Speedway Stout (the regular one).

Black, thick pour. Mocha head-sticky lacing. Molasses, coffee, dark chocolate and a touch of hops. Coating, thick mouthfeel. Slightly sweet start- mild bittering finish. Taste remains long after the swallow. Finishes much cleaner than most big stouts. Easy to drink with huge flavor. Will revisit for sure and definately like the format. Can't beat a 4 pack of 16 oz. cans at $10.99. Highly recommended.

A typically amazing stout from Evil Twin! between he and his brother, every creation is a taste treat. Pours almost black as oil. Thick with a moderate dark brown head. The aroma meets expectations - coffee, perhaps a hint of licorice and a bit of chocolate. Despite the high ABV, not boozy - full mouth feel, slightly sweet on the front end with a nice slightly bitter finish. This beer is great with food. ENJOY more than one!
