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!

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.

Man, pouring this stuff would make you think that the liquid came straight from the murkiest parts of the River Styx itself. Not black, but as deep brown and as opaque as it comes, and THICK! Not much head, but a decent amount of carbonation.

For some reason, I expected this stout to be a bit sweeter. It's chocolatey, yeah, but more like cocoa then Hershey's. Both in the smell and the taste, there is a dry, bitter quality that comes off like heavily toasted grains with a bit of coffee. Not much residual sugar or fruitiness, contrary to what the label suggests. I'm surprised it's not barrel-aged, because there's a lot of woody, charred oak flavor to it.

The most remarkable thing about this beer isn't the flavor, but the lack of heft. 12% and thick as any beer I've drank, I expected it to be a real booze bomb, a necessary sipper. However, I was swishing it around in my mouth to taste it and gulping down mouthfuls and it goes down like it was half as strong as it is...okay maybe not half as strong but I've I certainly tasted boozier, harsher beers with much lower ABV.

Overall, a winner, though perhaps not something I'd rush towards again, since if I'm doing a stout this intense, I prefer a bit more mellow sweetness like Dragons Milk, or The Abyss - different, I know, but it's a preference thing.
