COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Collaboration beer with Evil Twin Brewing
This beer was brewed as a collaboration between Jack’s Abby and Evil Twin Brewing. This black lager blends various roasted and dark crystal malts. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, and a subtle nuttiness dominate this sweet full bodied lager. Brown malt and chocolate wheat malt were specially sourced for this beer from Valley Malt. Enjoy!

December 2013 Release

Bottle: Thanks, Alex. Deep brown edges with a fully black center, the khaki layer of foam is quickly reduced to a moderately chunky collar. Dark malt aroma with notes of burnt caramel, milky cocoa nibs, cream, sweet molasses, a touch of anise, some vague nuttiness, & just a hint of roast. Slightly watery body with a lightly roasted malt profile. Some Blackstrap molasses, nuts, over caramelized sugars, dark chocolate, & a mild essence of sweet cream playing for balance underneath. Semisweet mid-palate, though it ends relatively dry & a little roasty. Another good brew from Jack’s Abby.

A pretty above average Schwartzbier, lots of toasty buttery notes, not in bad way either. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

What a hard style to find by north Florida ways, and yet what a pleasant example. We greatly enjoyed this one and I although I have tried many of the higher rated beers of this style over the years, it was a joy to drink and recall the style characteristics. Smooth dark pour and wonderful scents of mild chocolate aroma with bits of roastiness. And beautiful dark head accompanying a semi-bitter sweet first tastes and the smooth light palate of the lager. This is my new favorite brewery for their variety on the lager side, when I can get I will snatch it up with abandon. Thanks Jack & Abbey ;o)

Poured from a 500ml bottle. Roasted malts are the first thing that I notice, then there is a rich chocolate nutty note. A tasty beer.

Chocolat au lait, caramel sur fond d’anis. Le corps a une certaine structure, une complexité de malts rôtis avec une infusion aérienne qui rend le liquide difficile à ne pas boire.

blankboy (6067) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 21, 2014
[Bottle (500ml)] Pours a dark amber-brown with a large lasting frothy beige head. Minimal lacing. Aroma of toasted malt, chocolate, nuts, light hops and coffee. Nice flavour is malty and chocolaty along with some notes of coffee, smoke, earthy hops and nuts. Medium bodied, almost creamy mouthfeel. Not as smoky as I expected but still damn good.

Rather awesome and I thought unusual. On tap at total tap takeover at Tap and Mallet. Very dark, orange highlights. Nice thick creamy head. Nose and taste are similar and quite nice. Biscuits, nuttiness, cola, a bit of chocolate, caramel.
