Beer tasted? Evil Twin Brewing’s “I love you with my stout”
Style? Imperial Stout
Bottle/Can? Bottle, 12oz
Serving temp? From my garage, so maybe ’50s. Dark beers/Stouts seem to do better at this temp.
Poured into a glass.
Appearance? Dark, very dark. Only small amount of light getting through the top edges of the glass.
Smell? A nice sweetness of cola, with some tobacco coming through as it warmed up.
Mouthfeel? Medium-to-full bodied. Not the thickest stout I’ve ever had, but there’s enough body there to let you know it’s a Stout you’re drinking.
Taste? Combo of dark fruit/dark chocolate with some tobacco coming through as it warmed up a touch. There is some booziness in the middle, due to the abv sitting at a sizeable 12% which leads the way into a nice, dry finish that linger with flavors of toasted malts. If you’ve ever had a Guinness Extra Stout, you know what I’m talking about.
A very enjoyable Imperial Stout. It’s got enough good things going for it that I’ll most certainly buy this beer again.
To my fellow, beer drinking brethren,
Be Safe, Be Responsible,
And wage on!
