Bottled 33cl. Pitch black with a small deep beige head. Interesting reminiscence of banana split in the nose. Caramel, coffee and dark chocolate throughout. Full bodied. The alcohol is nicely hidden. Lovely but far from being great to my tastes.

On tap growler fill because if you local gas station already has Alesmith Hammerhead on tap, it might as well keep things balanced out by having this on at the same time. Poured black, very dark brown head. Aroma of espresso and chocolate. Flavor matched. As it warmed, some dark fruit notes slowly emerged. But in a sense, it was a bit one note. Just a very good note.

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?
