500ml bottle from ØlbutikkenPlovmand (8303) - Helsinge, DENMARK - MAY 9, 2012
Pours pitch black with beige head. Aroma of fruits, berries, orange, banana and spices. Taste has a lot of orange and banana notes with some roasty malts. Finish has some tart fruits and roastiness. Okay.
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.

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?

Dark dark brown almost black with very quickly dying beige head.
Roasted, burnt nose with coffee and a whif of smoke.

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.
