Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing
Style: American Imperial Stout
Other Notes: Imperial Stout brewed with molasses and pecan extract added
Brewer Description: (from can) A few times in the history of craft beer a highly praised beer rises beyond mortal stardom into a higher godly league. Usually the recipe to make such heavenly drops is thick fudge-like body, pitch black color, amazingly overwhelming aromas of chocolate, coffee, dark fruits, molasses, pecan extract and obviously only made in limited amounts. People – this is the taste of rare!

Intro: A 1 pint can, batch #001, but with no clear canned on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a one finger brown head that had decent retention while leaving some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Sweet, caramel, toffee, chocolate, nutty, nougat, cocoa, light roast.
Taste: Moderately sweet, roast, butterscotch, toffee, caramel, vanilla, nutty, pecan, hint of dark fruits with a lightly bitter finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Perhaps on the verge of being too sweet for me with the butterscotch and dark fruit flavours. Pecan extract was used but the nuttiness was not as strong as I would have hoped for.
