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!

Appearance: Poured black right out of the bottle. tried its best to rise up a foam topper but it just never materialized. A half head of dark leather and sand - gritty and blocky looking.

Aromatics: Very easy on the nose, plenty of sweet caramel malts, and chocolate, coffee, and date and plum - all are fairly standard and noticeable..

Taste: I love stouts - and the flavour in this one is absolution outstanding. Like drinking an ex trick chocolate milk with a blast of espresso.

Feel: On the bottle it says ‘thick fudge-like body” and they weren’t wrong. It literally feels like soft and gooey fudge fresh from the oven. It has an amazing full rich buttery body and enough carbonation to excite the sides of the palate to keep the sensation train rolling. There is a somewhat boozy caboose backing it all up, but is merely a passing fancy, and at the end of the line everyone de-boards in a quick and calm and clean manner, nothing is left on board except a melted dark chocolate candy bar that some kid left to melt in the sun and sticks to the palate a bit.

Overall: Absolutely superb. Finally an Imperial Stout I can start to look for as a staple in my Stout shelf in the cellar. I do like better head though (and who doesn’t, amiright guys?! ;) LOL). But this one has it all for me just in flavour and ABV - I can overlook any other deficiencies really easily.

Pairing : I’d take this with me to the Keg for dinner - that's the only place I have been able to get steak that is well done Chicago style and the don’t over cook it. A great broiled fancy steak, but you need the char so make sure it is Chicago style. It was a very a sweetened finish too, so even trying out a spicy dish like Pad Thai with beef (not shrimp) and a good 6 thai chilies.

A: [5.00] The can lists the ABV (12.0%) it has some batch code that is useless to tell how old it is. The beer is motor oil colored and it looks thick. It forms a 3 finger dense mocha head. It looks great in the glass.

S: [3.25] Dark fruit, alcohol, charred wood.

T: [3.75] Alcohol really hits you in the face. It is front and center on the palate. Underneath there is dark fruit like plums and dates. There is also lots of sweetness and it leans in a bittersweet chocolate flavor as it warms.

M: [4.25] Nice thick and chewy body. Low carbonation but high alcohol feel.

O: [3.50] This is a booze bomb. I really wanted to like it but the alcohol note is drowning out the subtler scents and flavors. As it warms it gets better balance - but it is still harsh early on. I'd pass on this in the future and get something with 1/2 the ABV and twice the flavor.

Evil Twin Brewing - Even More Jesus (Batch #005). 12% ABV. 16oz can poured into a snifter. (Reviewed 9/4/16).

Look: Pitch black body, with a pourus mocha head.

Smell: Cocoa nibs, graham crackers, dark malt, plums, figs, and a slight boozy aroma.

Feel: Heavy, chewy, thick bodied with a small amount of carbonation.

Taste: Spot on with the aroma. Some alcohol is noticeable up front, but is lost within the sweet cocoa, graham cracker, malts and fruits.

Overall: A liquid brownie describes this pretty accurately. One of the best stouts I've had for a while.
