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

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass. Bottled 5/21/14.

Appearance: totally black with a thick finger of rich, frothy dark-tan foam. Very good.

Smell: extremely rich aroma of chocolate, malt and rich, dark fruits: raspberry, cherry, date, raisin; it's like a Belgian quad and a porter got together. This seriously appeals to me.

Taste: much like the aroma, it's extremely rich and fruity. The same dark fruits are there, along with chocolate and a very impressive smoothness for a beer this strength. Two words: more please.

Mouthfeel: medium-rich body with a big carbonation and very good creaminess indeed. Shazam!

Overall: there are few beers as spot-on calculated to appeal to my taste. I love this.

I love everything about this beer except the alcohol taste. The beer tastes great except for the alcohol taste. It looks great. You smell it and it tastes great. As soon as that alcohol taste bites you it is not that great.

One of my 5 best beers of all time!!! Can't tell you how many times I've recommended it (even to servers at World of Beers as I am a member and have visited 17 WOB'S) who have never heard of it. Not easy to find but when you do BUY IT!!!! My first one WAS at a WOB and was a recommendation by one of there very informed bar guys. A f##king amazing beer.

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

Serving Type: Bottle
Consumed: 9.13.15

A: 4.5 Pours pitch black with a small, tan head. The head doesn’t last long and leaves very little lace.

S: 4.25 Aromas are only okay when the beer is cold, but around 60 degrees things really open up. Lots of chocolate, vanilla, roasted malt, dark coffee, and liquorish. Unfortunately, there’s a bit of soy sauce on the nose, but it’s very mild.

T: 4.25 Taste follows the nose very closely. Starts off a bit sweet, then moves to strong, roasted malt, marshmallow, vanilla, and chocolate. Like the nose, there’s a bit of soy sauce, but the roast and sweetness from the malt cover it quite well. Finish is more dark chocolate, some maple syrup, and light bitterness.

M: 4.5 Rich and thick body with great carbonation. The bitterness adds a bit too much of a dry finish for the style.

O: 4.25 Evil Twin’s stout game is great and Lil’ B is no exception. I remember previous bottles being a bit better, so at a year old, it may be slightly oxidized or past it’s prime. Overall, I prefer I Love You With My Stout, but this is a great alternative.

To me, this was a disappointment. Strong, nice complexity but it is so sweet that at the end of the bottle, you just want to have some water to rinse your mouth. The Belgians know how to add just enough sweetness and Evil Twin could have used some tips on this one.
You will taste the goodness in this one, as well as a mouthful of syrup.

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

Look: It has the motor-oil look of a heavy, boozy stout, and dark khaki head. Nice lacing.
Smell: At first, it's has a slightly bitter smell, but a chocolatey sweetness soon dominates. Almost smells like a milk stout.
Taste: Deliciously sweet, just on the edge of cloying. Hints of coffee-like bitterness and... blueberries? I feel like I'm getting more blueberry flavor from this than I did from Evil Twin's "From Amager with Love," which was supposed to be a blueberry stout.
Feel: Solid, not quite chewy.
Overall: If I didn't know better, I might think this one had been barrel-aged. Quite good.
