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!

Black in color and impenetrable to light. There's a half inch of tightly compacted creamy brown head. The aroma is not too pervasive, but I'm getting dark roasted barley, a lightly smoky note, and chocolate. I'm tasting loads of dark roasted barley and some bitter piney hops at the back of the palate. The mouth is thick and viscous.

Picked this little jewel up at the shop for $4.99, big bang for my buck! This brew reminded me of an oil change as I poured it into my snifter and left a two finger head. Dark brown frothy crown for the head with good lacing, body is darker than the mines of Moria, impenetrable to light. First smell I find the high alcohol content, but a good amount of dark fruits, chocolate, and even a burnt wood scent. Something sweet is buried in there as well, I will call it molasses. The taste is very roasty and rich, coffee notes encompass the brew along with a slight burnt taste which is polished off with the sweet sensation of molasses. Not extremely boozy for a 12% abv stout, but decadent and smooth.

Bottle Date: none, but more than a year
Palate Contaminants: none

Color is very dark, with a reddish-brown meniscus. No head at all.

The smell is coffee and dried dark fruit, like prunes and figs – and they're thick if that's a thing for smells. Molasses, as well. Graham crackers as it warms up a bit.

The coffee isn't present in the taste, but the dried dark fruit flavors certainly are. I half expect to bite into an apocryphal wasp. (Note: The crunch y things in figs are seeds, not remnant wasp exoskeletons.) The molasses flavor takes on a scorched character, which reminds me of a high quality rum. The smokiness is at a good level. Finally, there's some rye flavor in the background.

The weight is just right, although I wish it had a little more carbonation. The aftertaste is that smoky rum flavor, and it's moderately strong.

L: Poured pitch black with about a finger of thick, frothy, dark brown head. This beer looks like sludge in a glass. It looks incredible. Absolutely no light coming through the glass.

S: Amazing. Chocolate, coffee, almonds, nutmeg. It has a sweet beginning that is followed up with some smooth roasted aromas. Very dark and very decadent.

T: Leans more on the dark, roasty side than the sweet side. Bitter coffee nearing being burnt. Overall, solid, but I think I enjoyed the smell slightly more. Finishes with a hint of sweetness, but not quite as much as the smell.

F: Smooth, rich, creamy, and decadent. Big frothy start from the head that evens itself out nicely and finishes with just the slightest of alcohol burn. Very thick and viscous.

O: A very impressive beer. Not to sound like a band wagoner, but this would be the perfect beer if it was barrel-aged. That being said, as a standalone, this beer is phenomenal and perfect for a cold winter's day.

I got a little aggressive on the pour, which generated a massive brown bronze head that left behind a clingy, sticky lacing. Nose is plenty full of molasses, followed by hints of chocolate, fig and a bit of alcohol nose heat. Taste immediately brings fig, hotness and a little molasses. As this warms up a bit more, some dark chocolate begins to work it's way in. What I am tasting is really full and begs of plenty of contemplation. Mouth feel is a major factor as soon as I take the first sip. Thick, syrupy and full. Like drinking an alcohol laden molasses fig cake batter or something. Finish is dry with only a touch of sweetness left on the tongue. In a world where a lot of stouts seem mailed in, this one is a well thought out work of mastery

Darkest brown with brown foamy head. Aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, fudge, earth, and cinnamon. Tastes of dark chocolate, cinnamon, coffee, cola, earth, some pine, and booze. Thick in body with medium carbonation.
