3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A four pack from Evil Twin? Sign me up. Black pour with an almost cascading fizzy brown head. Aroma was big roasty malt, burnt toast, spent coffee grounds, cocoa, touch of vanilla. Flavors were sweet and rich, cocoa, sweet vanilla and a big roasty burnt bitter finish. Really reminds me of a big roasty porter rather an imperial stout. Kinda thin and had that porter twang to it. Really dug it though, love the four pack format too.

Dark pour with a little bit of off white head. A very malty smell with a little bit of chocolate and earthiness. A hot taste with some bakers chocolate, cocoa, coffee grounds a little bitter towards the finish. Decent but I don't care for the earthy undertones.

Pours pitch black with head that disappears fast. Full bodied beer, with chokolate, roasted barley and coffee sticking out. Great beer, but mixed with Yang it becomes truly outstanding.

Pours an opaque black from the bottle with thin ring of tab head that sticks nicely. Aroma is slight coffee and chocolate, nice soy notes, and a decent alcohol kick. Taste follows, less booze and more coffee though. Solid by itself, let?s see how it tastes as a black and tan.
