BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Evil Twin Brewing
New York, United States

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!

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!

This is a wonderful -NOT flat - stout. It's not exactly fizzy - but it does have pleasing carbonation.

It looks oily coming out of the can. It pours oily. And the texture is thick and kind of oily (some people might prefer the description, "milky.") Which is to say, it's just the way I like my stouts! The aroma and flavor are very pleasing - the dark fruit and hints of sweetness one might expect in a good stout like this. In addition, the taste is not spoiled by the addition of too much hops.

I am going to make it a point to remember this one - and next time I'll buy 2 or 3 instead of just 1.

From a can, pours as opaque black with a surprisingly brown head. Aroma is sweet, boozy, and with dark fruit. Taste is a thick molasses like sweet roasted malt with creamy chocolate flavors. Hops is not apparent. Overall, way too sweet for my liking and too boozy for more that one in the evening.

1 pint can poured in a tulip glass.
Smell of chocolate, dark malts, and coffee.
Taste of roasted malts, chocolate and caramel and toffee. A light dry bitterness in the finish as well.
Mouthfeel is full and creamy with very little carbonation.
Overall a thick and creamy stout full of chocolaty sweetness but well balanced. Would definitely pick some more of these up. Reminds me very much of beer geek brunch from mikkeller.

Thick, black, chocolate, coffee smell and taste. Yes, it even smells thick. Very good imperial stout. My only complaint might be the sweetness. It's a little too sweet for me but I still thought this was a very good I.S.

Evil Twin Even More Jesus, 12% ABV, 75 IBU. Pours thick and black with a nice one finger brown head. Nose is coffee, roasty malt, chocolate, and sugar. Taste follows, quite fudgy but not cloyingly sweet, amazingly low bitterness given the IBU, so well balanced. Perfect carbonation, outstanding mouthfeel, overall outstanding. I like this much better than their Imperial Biscotti Break, which I found disappointing. Funny thing with this one is that it tastes Bourbon Barrel Aged - had to go double check the can.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance - Pours midnight black with a chocolate colored, finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a mostly barren surface and a ring of suds around the edge of the glass. Minimal lacing; a few small spots, really.

Smell - Chocolate, sugar, dark fruit and a light roast edge.

Taste - Follows the nose. Chocolate and dark fruit are sweet enough, but then a punch of sugar comes through mid-taste to take it over the top. Copper character pops in and out. Coffee roast arrives, thankfully, near the finish to give some semblance of balance, but it isn't nearly enough, as the finish mostly lingers with residual sugary sweetness.

Mouthfeel - Full-bodied with low-to-moderate carbonation. Sticky, nigh syrupy mouthfeel with a dry finish that leaves a stickiness on the lips.

Overall - Way too sweet and sugary for my tastes. If this were coffee, it'd be 1/4 chocolate creamer and sugar. I'm more of a classic black guy. If it weren't for the bit of roastiness in the back end this thing would be a completely cloying mess. The odd metallic notes doesn't help.
