COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a 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!

The smell is rasins, malty sweetness, the color is dark with a light brown head, bitter sweet chocolate. The ABV will destroy you, but it’s worth the pain. A classic Eviltwin beer!!!

bellco33 (629) - Willington, Connecticut, USA - FEB 26, 2016
On tap (nitro!) into a tulip: Pours jet black with a off white foamy nitro head. Aroma of roasted malts, nuts, caramel, and leaves. Taste is so much roasty goodness, more nut and cocoa. This i way to easy to drink at 12%, not at all sweet and finishes quite dry in fact. I like this a lot.
