Brewery: Sand City Brewing Co. x Evil Twin Brewing
Style: American Imperial Stout
Brewer Description: (from website) Brewed in collaboration with our friends at Evil Twin Brewing. This imperial stout pours like motor oil with a thick and creamy head. Notes of dark fruit, chocolate, and molasses. Dangerously drinkable given its high ABV.

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 23rd February 2018. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: It poured dark dark brown to black in colour with a thin half finger brown head that dissipated almost immediately, but left some nice spotty lacing.
Aroma: Sweet, moderate roast, chocolate, brown sugar, licorice, caramel, and toffee, with hints of vanilla, marshmallow, and some nutty notes.
Taste: Roasty, sweet, dark chocolate, caramel, fudgy, brown sugar, molasses, licorice, dark fruit, and coffee, with a light but lasting bitter and boozy finish.
Mouthfeel: Syrupy, full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Aromas were good, but taste was a touch too sweet and syrupy for me. It was still quite drinkable as a slow sipper though.
