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.

KnutAlbert (6216) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 22, 2011
On tap at Schouskjelleren. Smoke, coffee, soot, yet fruity. Hard to detect the orange directly, but a lovely stout packed with flavour.

shoulderbroken (2151) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 1, 2012
Keg at Brewdog Camden. Dark brown with big golden bubbly creamy head. Aroma bit fishy, smoky, yeasty, and a touch of orange. Lots of stouty roastiness. Taste slightly savory, bit creamy, roast malt, oaty and just a hint of orange. Very nice. Creamy finish with a bit more orange.

kramer (5061) - 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.

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.

teorn88 (2382) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 11, 2012
On tap at Brewdog Camden. It pours a mostly black colour with a medium brown head. Lasting foam. Aroma is dark chocolate, roasted cocoa beans, vanilla and roasted malts. Taste is similar, mostly sweet with cocoa and wood notes. Quite thick in body with good carbonation. Overall, very very tasty when considering the ABV. Nice one.

mverity (268) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Black in color with a head that’s thick and creamy. Thick collar, decent lacing. Aroma is coffee, roasty malt and bitter chocolate. Creamy mouthfeel, low carbonation despite that good head. Taste is also roasted malt up front with coffee and dark chocolate behind that. Nothing remarkable.

Bottle sample at the Evil Twin tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 10/4/12. Pitch black pour with a medium light brown head. Aroma of malt, chocolate, vanilla, roast and light dark fruit. Malty flavor with some citrus and dark chocolate before a roasty finish.
