3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle on new years eve this year with frumptydumpty and another one here tonight. Thanks Ryan. GUSHER!!!!!! Don’t remember this on new years eve, but my memory is slightly cloudy from that point in the night. Nose is coffee, roasted malt, light hops, vanilla. Flavor is similarly coffee dominated, roasted malts, some light tartness, a bit of booze, vanilla, cocoa. A little thin and boozy overall, but still drinkable.

On tap at local option. Pours black with a dark brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma is full of coffee and dark chocolate backed by roasted malt and a hint of vanilla. Flavor is full of bitter chocolate with some backing roasted malts and coffee. Nice on the tongue.

Bottle from Charleston Beer Exchange. Pours black with brown head. Nose/taste of freshly brewed coffee, toasted almonds, vanilla beans and roast chocolate malt. Great complex coffee, vanilla and almond mix on the palate. Bottle gushed a bit, but this is still my favorite beer from Evil Twin thus far. Medium body.

Pours dark chocolate with a thick dark crimson hue. There is virtually no head at all after a few minutes out of tap. The aroma is light sweet roasted coffee and malt notes. The flavor of roasted espresso and malts starts off nicely, then subtle vanilla notes continue, followed by a beautiful roasted and sweet chocolate ending. The body is just thick enough for a single porter to really enjoy.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nearly opaque black with a small, tan head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malts, light smoke, vanilla, toffee, nuts, and light alcohol. Taste of roasted malts, some smoke, vanilla cream, and cocoa. Thin, and overall pretty lame, like everything else I had from evil twin.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Capone’s. Poured turbid black with minimal tan head. Nose was roasty patent malt, cacao, hazelnut, vanilla. Tasted rich, complex, with the malt, cacao, nutty hazelnut/walnut, and vanilla working synergistically to make this one a nice surprise, and a delicious holiday beer.
