My rating: 4
My beeradvocate.com rating: 4.11
My ratebeer.com rating: 3.9

Intro: A 22 fl. oz. bomber with no bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a thin brown head that dissipated quickly to a ring around the glass and left only sparse to no lacing.
Aroma: Bourbon, chocolate, pancake batter, molasses and maple.
Taste: Sweet maple, oak, bourbon, chocolate, caramel and coffee with hints of vanilla and soy.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, full to medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: It’s sweet, but luckily only on the borderline of being too sweet for me. I also get some maple flavours, but prefer it to be even more distinct. But despite this, it was still a nice an enjoyable dessert beer.

Intro: A 1 pint can, canned on 6th October 2017, with the words: “This one’s for you kidz” printed on the bottom. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A murky dark orange colour with a two finger frothy white head that had pretty good retention and left some nice lacing.
Aroma: Citrusy and tropical strong with lots of mango, peach, apricot, grapefruit peel, orange rind and a hint of vanilla.
Taste: Orange juice, mango, peach, pineapple, citrus peel with a touch of vanilla. Finish is lightly sweet and bitter.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate to low carbonation.
Overall: Wonderful fruit aromas while very easy and relaxing to drink. I wasn’t sure how the vanilla would match with IPA’s, but in this case, it balances very well with the tropical and citrus fruits.

Evil Twin Even More Jesus

Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing
Country: USA
ABV: 12%
Style: American Imperial Stout
Other Notes: Produced and bottled for Evil Twin Brewing at Westbrook Brewing Co., USA.

Brewer Description: (from bottle) A few times in the history of craft beer it has happened that 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 and muscovado sugar, obviously only made in limited amounts and most crucial of all – it must taste rare!
