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!

Pours an opaque dark brown almost black like oil with khaki colored head. Chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Full bodied. Finishes with cocoa and roast.

2014 vintage
22oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a motor oil thick jet black color with one of the darkest brown heads that I've seen, it pours creamy and velvety and stays for a while before settling into a ring around the glass

S- aroma opens up with lots of dark fruit along with black licorice. Beyond that, notes of mocha nut fudge brownie mixes with candied fig & nutty malts & a hint of caramel

T- taste follows the aroma up front with lots of dried fig & raisin and hints of licorice. The mid-palate brings deep and rich chocolate along notes of toasted walnut, caramel & brownies. The finish brings more dark fruits

M- thick and viscous body with low carbonation leads to a creamy chewy mouthfeel and a velvety smooth finish, just a hint of alcohol linger. This is a perfect mouthfeel when it comes to a high abv stout

O- an outstanding straight up imperial stout that is complimented by a perfect mouthfeel. ET always brews a winner when it comes to stouts

This beer pours an opaque jet black with a 2 finger chocolate milkshake colored head that sticks around FOREVER. It finally recedes to a quarter inch layer across the top that stays for the duration. There are many webbed sheets of lacing as well. The smell is amazing and decadent. Rich chocolate fudge, coffee, roasted malts and a nice smokiness all blend together to form an amazing aroma. Taste is exactly the same. The sweetness from the chocolate and the smokey flavor intertwine wonderfully and the 12% abv is nonexistent. Feel is thick and viscous. It really coats the whole mouth. Overall this beer is absolutely world class. This is the best non BA stout I've ever had.

Poured into a teku glass.
A: Midnight black with a tight tan ring; no head.

S: Dark chocolate, anise, coffee, leather, dark fruits.

T: So decadent. Like bathing in a chocolate fountain. Rich, thick, roasty, sweet and deadly. Follows nose with a fudge-like texture. This one is a real sipper, to be shared and savored.

M: Medium with creamy/thick carbonation.

O: Glad I finally got to try this heavenly nectar. Take it slow. The 12% will sneak in and baptize you with chocolate love. One of the best Evil Twins I've tried. Very recommended.
