3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330ml bottle, pours deep ruby amber with an off white head. Lots of yeasty flecks in the glass like a snowstorm. Aroma is rich roasted caramel, big piney notes, its got a coppery metallic edge which is more pleasant than it sounds. Body is medium, texture is slightly oily but finishes dry with a long bitterness. Carbonation is average. Nice unusual beer

Last beer of 2014. A deep amber colored brew with two finger head and fine lacing. Nose is hops and some fruity tones. Tastes of pine needles, dusty hops, bready, grainy, hint of dried fruits, and some earthy bitters. Slighty sticky finish with lingering pine needles om the tongue.

Tried this the other night in BrewDog Bar Glasgow. Tasty! I'd never tried anything from Evil Twin before.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
355ml bottle (Alko Arkadia, Helsinki)
Sweet aroma, caramelly, tinned peaches, including the tin. Nice dark red, tight tan head. Body is pure dark toffee. Sweet and sticky, so much caramel. Fairly pleasant for something so sweet, but still, an absurdly sweet amber ale. Does also have some of the metal in the bitter hopping. A bit rusty, not helped by the thickness of the palate - it’s like drinking slag. Not that I know what drinking slag tastes like. Sweet and sticky, but fortunately not boozy, and not too messy.

Voimakkaan humalainen tuoksu. Vaahto katoava. Maku voimakkaan humalainen, kukkainen, suhteellisen pehmyt.

Strong bitter taste. Hoppy aroma. Not much of an aftertaste. Really bitter but not much more. I think i would mind drinking the whole bottle.

IPA classique, fort goût de houblon. Ce goût de houblon s’installe directement et le goût n’évolue pas.
