COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
He has proportionally longer arms than others, recognisable by his reddishbrown hair, among the most intelligent primates and uses a variety of really sophisticated tools. But what makes him so gifted and very sought after is his notorious ability to maintain deviously capable, deliver something unpredictable and always perform with a curious mind of a five year old.

Plovmand (6178) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2012
Bottle at home. Pours jet black with a medium beige head. The aroma is mainly roasted malts, tobacco, light chocolate and coffee. The flavour is hard roasted and bitter malty with some sourish fruity note. Quite roasted overall and the sourish woody like thing suits the flavour.

Pinball (10610) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2012
50cl bottle. pitch dark, smooh brown head with bubbles. bready aroma with lots of roasted malts.flavor is roasted malts, a tart scarred woody note I can’t really place, plain guinness like stout and i think i might have had that same tart scarred woody note in a guinness. quite roasted and flavorfull for a 5.8%er, quite dry, not at all sweet, sort of a session stout. unlike many other lower alc. stout this one do have a lot of flavor. Other raters find citrus and oranges in the flavor. That might be it, I didn’t really think oranges when i tasted it, but now i can taste citrus or oranges. what are they doing in a stout?

21APR-2012, bottle @home, from "Ølbutikken". Dark dark brown almost black with very quickly dying beige head. Roasted, burnt nose with coffee and a whif of smoke. Taste is just as burnt but the oranges show up and adds sweetness and a citric tartness. Quite full for 6 %. Very drinkable, nice.

My second to last pint of the night was this fine example of a stout. Almost as good as the Soft Dookie I thought this was better by virtue of being somewhat sessionable. If I would have started the night with this it would have been tough to switch. I hope the rest of the beers from Evil Twin are just as excellent.

Aroma / Appearance - Black, oily, and smooth this is thick and dense for a mere 6% stout. Chocolate dipped oranges give it the feel of an early Easter basket. Smooth with bitter undertones it draws you into its trap.

Flavor / Palate - Orange glazed cheesecake bites pepper the throat with a texture like melted chocolate. Cadbury eggs transition to the mostly bitter malt driven finish. Despite the low ABV I almost feel like this one could easily sneak up on the unaware. If it were a $5.00 tap or Happy Hour special I know what I would be drinking.

kramer (4694) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 23, 2012
Tap. Avenue pub. Pours a pitch black body with a great tight bubbled dark brown head that had nice retention. The nose is nicely roasty and thick smelling with just the lightest hint of orange peel. The orange peel comes out a bit more in the flavor, still quite muted and in thr background, letting the Stout play center stage. Richly roasty with just the right amount of malt bitterness. Some light orange zest bitterness on the late finish adds it’s own twist. Medium bodied with nice soft carbonation. Very nice beer.

faroeviking (10294) - FAROE ISLANDS - FEB 29, 2012
Draught in Esbjerg, @ Dronning Louise. Deep dark brown colour with a nice brown head, sticky like, lasting well. Aroma of roasty malt, and fruity hops with chocolate. Good mouthfeel, suspected bit more filling. Flavour of roasty malt, chocolate and fruity hops along with a bit orange in the finish.
