$4.29 single poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint. Bottled 5/21 and poured 6/26.

Appearance: Pours pitch black with a tiny brown head that goes away pretty quickly. Strange, since I saw pictures of this beer with huge, fluffy ones. Very little lacing.

Smell: Dark chocolate, black coffee, a lot of dark fruits as well. The dark fruit character shines through most.

Taste/feel: Pretty damn tasty. Dark fruits galore, for me, with a hefty amount of coffee/roasty notes as well. Mocha sort of flavor at the end with a dry, dry finish. Sweet beer overall. A little roast bitterness at the end, but sweet to the point of almost being cloying. A bit of tanginess as well that seems to fit with the whole dark fruit flavor. Alcohol warmth is there, but untraceable for flavor when the beer's colder. A pretty creamy feel, but not super heavy. A high-ish carbonation is also there, which is true to the style.

I enjoy it -- it's the dark fruitiest dark beer I've ever had, which I didn't see coming. At the same price, I'd much prefer ET's I Love You With My Stout, as its roastiness, tobacco qualities, and deeper depth of flavor, but this is still an outstanding beer. To give you an idea of how phenomenal Evil Twin's dark brews are, this is my lowest scored one, and I'd consider it to be a disappointment. Another tasty sipper from Evil Twin.

Lots of chocolate but might be a little too sweet

12 oz bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance
Jet black with a short brown head that dissipates quickly. I saw a chunk of yeast go kerplunk into my glass towards the end of the pour, so watch out!

Nose
Semi-sweet chocolate, raisin, fig, coffee, vanilla, and dark caramel.

Taste
Semi-sweet chocolate, milk chocolate, and sherry. Medium roast coffee with light additions of cream, sugar and vanilla. Molasses, caramel, raisin, fig, and black plum. Finishes with notes of earth and cocoa nib.

Mouthfeel
Medium-plus bodied, slick, oily, sticky, and warming.

Overall
Robust, rich, sweet, and decadent. A nice sipper at 11.5%.
