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!

Appearance: Deep slick motor oil black with not much head despite an aggressive pour and some sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Roasty dark malts, molasses, chocolate, coffee, dark fruits and a hint of char.
Taste: Roasty, chocolate, molasses, caramel and coffee. On the back end, at times there is this light lingering smoked honey glazed bacon flavour. Interesting!

My rating: 3

My ratebeer.com rating: 3.4

Intro: A 22 fl. oz. bomber with no clear bottled on or best before date other than Batch #02. Poured into a snifter.
Appearance: Black in colour with a half finger brown head that had decent retention and left some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Roasted malts, chocolate, liquorice and some booze.
Taste: Chocolate, liquorice, caramel and booze with a hint of char.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: This was ok cold out of the fridge, but as it warms up a bit, which is when Imperial Stouts usually thrive, it actually became more boozy and perhaps overly harsh. Also, while there is some chocolate in the flavour, it is nowhere near what we are led to believe in the name ‘Liquid Double Fudge’.

Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break

Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing
Country: USA
ABV: 11.5%
Style: American Imperial Stout
Other Notes: Produced and bottled for Evil Twin Brewing at Westbrook Brewing Co., USA. Imperial Stout malt beverage brewed with coffee beans and with natural flavors added

Brewer Description: (from bottle) The Roman Empire had a certain ‘je ne sais quoi’ festival food culture, extravagant architecture and spectacular live entertainment. Some might argue the Emperors where brutal, mad and hungry for power, and the people vain when taking baths and working out all day. Listen – that’s still all part of the secret Imperial ingredient – keep it cool, clear, confident, arrogant and flamboyant. Forza Imperiale.
