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!

DATE: June 12, 2017... OCCASION: The Cavs head back to Oracle for Game 5... can history repeat itself? Sounds like this calls for a powerful, "rare" beer... GLASSWARE: Duvel tulip... oozes from its can like crude, with a velvety viscosity that transforms into a three-fingered staunchly bread-like brown head--the sixteen ounce can delivers a sight to behold... first sniff is chocolate, dark and fruity, with an erupting sweetness that is malty but not candied... coffee and rum are hints that enter late but can be detected... quite a dessert, though this could probably star at many times of day... BIG, powerful as any Imperial I have had recently, with heat late and a lasting coating through the throat... wow, the aftertaste remains long after the first sip... chewy, memorably meaty... avoiding dumb religious puns, this experience is epic in its length, with hoppy presence in the teeth and the full-bodied, sipping it straw-like with the pleasure of a creamy bourbon... the flavor profile is sweet, sugary, with chocolate, coffee bean, and some light earthiness make for an experience that makes for one heavy evening of a boozy brew...

4/30/17...pitch black, midnight oil, coal. Light layer of tan foam settling out slowly. Hearty coffee nose, espresso roasted. Thick boozy flavor. Astringent. Stops away the malt flavor. Dark fruits emerge. A bomb, full force 12%

Very dark appearance with slight tan head that desipates quickly. Very pleasant mild and sweet molasses aroma. Taste is a very pleasant molasses with no alcohol aftertaste. I prefer bottles over cans.

Poured into pint glass from a 16 oz. can purchased at Whole Foods while visiting Georgia.

Look: Black as a moonless night . Small, medium/dark-brown head with nice lacing.

Smell: Heavy dark malts, booze, dark chocolate aroma

Taste: Bursting with flavor. Grabs hold of your taste buds and assaults them with a wonderful flavor. Sweet and savory

Feel: Very thick and syrupy, low carbonation, sticky residue.

Overall: Fantastic, a world-class imperial stout if there ever was one.

Almost had me back in church. Some unique flavors in a nicely defined half dozen flavors. Great when I can get it. Pricy and tough to get here in the mitt.

16oz can-- wish they would start dating these...

Pitch black color into a snifter. 1.5 finger foamy brown head that leaves fairly quickly. Still a thin layer of foam stays around the edges and I am impressed by the lacing. Lacing does not stay to play as the beer warms.

Aroma is lots of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, and molasses. Some saltiness as well. Some dark fruit also- dates and raisins. A bit of vanilla and caramel but a very "dark" and roasty smelling beer overall.

Taste is more complex than I was expecting. Molasses, chocolate, salted caramel, umami, roasted malts, coffee, and hops. Such an interesting combination of flavors. Have to say, a bit too salty for my liking.

Feel is so very thick, syrupy, and heavy. Definite alcohol warming.

Overall very interesting. A deep, dark, thick beer. A bit subtle on some of the flavors but I enjoy it that way. It doesn't scream sweetness like Imperial Biscotti Break. This is a much more savory roasty beverage.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Viscous anthracite with purple-sienna foam. 4.25
Ash and fish sauce. 4
Blackstrap molasses, soy, 100% cocoa, smoke, figs, cold espresso, and cola spice finish. 4.5
Treacly, full, chewy. 4.25

All the black things. Way savoury, but enough sweetness to keep it going: Marmite meets ganache. Almost 4 years of cellar on this one, so not as aggressively fish saucy as previous samples I've had. As heavy as it is, cocoa keeps it fun. Deepest and darkest. “Violent!” says Steph. 4.25

I'm sorry but this beer is a MUST. I've got some age on mine. Probably 6 months which really changes the flavor. Look is black as night with a cappuccino head. Beautiful. Smells of chocolate, woody toasty, maple, coffee. Taste is of chocolate and coffee brown sugar. Has a marshmallow feel to me. Very thick. Just how I like my stouts. Again, a must have for any stout drinker. Hides the abv exceptionally well. Drink with caution.

Dark fudge like, like chocolate syrup. Smells hoppy and chocolatey and taste is of chocolate with alcohol bite but for an imperial stout very smooth but not biscotti break smooth or biscotti break good but good nonetheless.
