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!

Thx. for the bottle Antoine. 33 cl. bottle @ Delirium Hoppy Loft. Nice golden on black design & I love the name but the accompanying text is so ridiculous and fails so badly at tongue-in-cheek that I just skimmed past it, it is quite Brewdog-esque but even sillier (& that is apparently possibly in case if you were wondering). Evil Twin has been quite known for taking one flavour and cranking it up to eleven which on several occasions has made them appear more like purveyors of bad jokes as opposed to brewers but I am quite a fan over extremely over the top flavours in beer so I am taking a light shining to them plus this beer promised to be an RIS, a style which I quite love seeing over the top as most other users of this website do. Pours an appeasing oily black with a creamy, descending mocha desert bubbly head. Nose is sweet and tad vinous with very sweet mocha, fudge, very creamy, thick chocolate and lightly roasted malts. Taste and body is rather creamy blended with some bitter coffee, roasted malts, fudge, sweet mocha, chocolate, sweetly vinous, light soy sauce, light vanilla. Not as over the top as I had hoped but decent enough this is not a bad RIS. Doesn’t taste rare either :(

Bottle. Pours a motor oil black with small tan head. The aroma is a strong roasted malt and vanilla. Medium mouthfeel with booze, chocolate, coffee, and alcohol burn finish. A good Imperial stout from Evil Twin.

pentaz (1255) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 26, 2012
Bottle. Pours oily black with lasting thick average dark brown head, Aroma is roasted and dark malts, chocolate, molasses. Taste is heavy sweet, light+ bitter. Body is full, texture is thick and smooth, carbonation is average. Finishes malty with some bitterness. Impressive brew . it is so balanced and light bitter, a rich malty taste with that high ABV . Even people who don’t care for stout dig this one.

Rune (9367) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 16, 2012
330ml bottle, shared with Gunnar and larsga at Schouskjelleren. Body is black as the devil. Tiny, tan-coloured head. Dark malty aroma with wood, anise and integrated alcohol. Dark bread, dark spices and bitter liquorice can be spotted in a powerful taste character. Dark roasted bitter ending supported by warming alcohol lingering all the way to Håndverkerstuene. Full body, velvety in the mouth. Very pleasant (Oslo, 10.12.2012).

BeerBaboon (1766) - FINLAND - DEC 15, 2012
Tämä hauskasti nimetty Evil Twinin tuote kaatuu lasiin mustana muodostaen kauniin, tumman ruskean vaahdon. Kauniimman näköistä olutta on vaikea kuvitella. Olut tuoksuu tummalle suklaalle, paahtuneelle maltaalle ja kahville. Maku on tumman suklainen, paahtunut, katkera ja kahvinen. Olut on paksua ja öljyistä. Hiilihappoisuus on hyvin keskivertoa. Herkullinen jälkiruoka olut.

RexTalionis (3023) - FINLAND - DEC 14, 2012
Bottle 33 cl. Pours black in color with a thin beige head, looks a bit like you were pouring motor oil. Appearance reminds of Bourbon County Stout. Cold coffee with some more sweeter elements, perhaps some slightly burnt brown sugar in aroma and some dark bread. There’s something harsh in aroma, can’t really describe it but it’s slightly off putting anyway. Oily. Flavor has some coffee and roasted malts, some faint hints of smoke and burnt wood or ash is also found in taste. Sticky mouthfeel. No sign of the alcohol. Bitter dark chocolate, some notes of hops and vanilla in aftertaste. Has a long finish of some roasted coffee and is slightly bittersweet as well.

gunnar (6424) - Sandnes, NORWAY - DEC 11, 2012
Shared bottle at Schoukjelleren, Oslo. Pours black with no head at all. Aroma is dark malty red ripe fruits, charcoal and chocolate. Taste is deep malty, with some tobacco and liquorice blending in, sweet lingering dark light roasted caramel lingering all the way. Full bodied, oily mouthfeel, Jesus is good for some, this beer is better for me. Did i say this one was a hit !

Tmoney99 (11919) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle. Poured black color with a moderate creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Medium to heavy toasted sweet chocolate malt with a small alcohol aroma. Full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced toasted chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

RichTheVillan (4499) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 7, 2012
Bottle from Cotteridge Wines; pours pitch black with creamy tan head, strong malt aroma with heavy alchohol presence. Really thick viscous pour first taste is whoa raisins, sugar, bitter edge at back of tongue. Mouthfeel is great slips down a dream.
