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

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.

Marheb (1940) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 27, 2014
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 (5948) - 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.

Beerathon (1068) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2014
The chocolate malts come through nicely, along with bitter coffee flavors, and nuttiness. Black with semi-creamy head. Fantastic, as is everything from Jack’s Abby.

16 ounce bottle poured into a tulip. Pours dark brown slightly black with almost a finger of tan head. No lacing. Aromas of roast, coffee, sweet nuts, biscuit. Tasting notes of coffee, roast, caramel, dark chocolate, a little toast/biscuit. Medium body with a dry finish. Medium carbonation, slightly creamy syrupy mouthfeel. Tasty schwarzbier.

Atom (1278) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - APR 21, 2014
Bottle pours a dark brown/black with a medium khaki head. Aroma of sweet roasted nuttiness. Taste had a dry roasted nuttiness, semi-sweet chocolate, with some bitter coffee on the finish. Flavors are rather light in the taste, but is nice a drinkable.

Lukaduke (1992) - Portland, Maine, USA - APR 20, 2014
Pours a deep mahogany color with two fingers of grayish foam. Nose is a mixture of forest floor, moss, old smoke, tobacco and rye. Flavor follows with a mellow roasted earth backbone, nice balance of smoke and malt, hints of rye spice, bitter chocolate and hints of walnut. Lingering bitterness gets a little fishy metallic as it finishes out.

bottle from trade with phatdog01. I rated lower than most - aroma was best part - sweet malt and nuts dominate. Taste was beer - really nothing special for me
