3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the ChurckKey, DC. A thin tan head on a near black body. Nose has some bourbon, malt and some sourness. The weakest IS from Evil Twin I have had, by a long shot. The taste has a definite sourness, chocolate, bitterness and a slight burnt edge. Booziness is definitely a lead taste element. But it is thin (as opposed to having a "thick fudge-like body") and disappointing. Bad Keg?

Catch up rating from Saturday’s RIS bottle share. As it turned to Sunday morning, we all turned to Jesus, even more Jesus. Not much else to add to this one, a top notch RIS, thick, chewy body, tons of chocolate notes, woody roast grains, and a pleasant warmth in the chest. All spells a superlative drink. Cheers!
