In this beer blog, we are going to get into the first brew on this blog ever from Evil Twin Brewing. The beer is their Aun Mas Cafe Jesus Imperial Stout. Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø founded Evil Twin Brewing in 2010. Evil Twin Brewing started out as a rogue brewery, which means he would use other people’s brewery to brew his beers. There are several breweries like that out there in the market. To-Ol and Stillwater are two other popular craft breweries on the market right now. The state of Denmark beers styles made him and a few of his friends to start brewing their own beers. Evil Twin was not the only craft brewery to pop up in Denmark. He knows and is friends with the founder from Mikkeler Brewery. Evil Twin has teamed up with several different breweries to make brews together. They also brew several different beer styles and pushing the limits of classic beer styles. Two Rogue Breweries or they like to called themselves Gypsy Breweries has teamed up to build their own brewery together. I do not know how true this right now. It is all a rumor and I cannot find any facts on this rumor. It is an Urban Legend and do not hold this to me, however, Evil Twin has been working moving more brewing to The States. Let us get into this brew.
This Imperial Stout has a jet black color with a nice tan and light brown constant head. The smell is slight toffee and chocolate with some coffee bean. The taste of this full body beer is a chocolate and toffee with a heavy coffee notes. It is a nice sipping beer.
Here is a description from the bottle:
On a pilgrimage for immortal craft beer we tripped on these heavenly coffee beans – threw them in and created damn good aromas, a thick fudge-like body, pitch black color and obviously only made it in limited amounts. And the taste… furthermore jesus!!
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, I am speechless on how good this beer is and was in my beer glass. I have had some great Imperial Stouts and Coffee Stouts in my time on this planet. This is one of my favorite beer styles. I have to say this beer from Evil Twin is up there in my top ten in the stout styles. In every sip, that I take from my beer glass I pick up something new and exciting from this beer. There is a nice balance between the stout and the coffee beans itself. I will have to explore more Evil Twin brews in the near future. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
