This review features “I Love You With My Stout,” an American Imperial Stout brewed by Evil Twin Brewing in Brooklyn, New York. It weighs in at a hefty 12% ABV and an unspecified IBU rating, though judging by the flavor profile it’s probably pretty high on that scale also.
Pour is a slightly lighter shade of brown than most Imperial Stouts I’ve had; it’s more of a transparent chestnut brown color with a thin 1 finger of head that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is a rich roasted coffee with a hint of a generic sweetness. Big, bold flavors of dark chocolate, roasted malts, dark roast coffee and black cherry with a slight hint of vanilla. Finishes with a strong, slightly astringent but not unpleasant bitter hop note. Thick, creamy mouthfeel with subtle, soft carbonation. Drinks easily but I wouldn’t advise slamming it back.
Overall a solid representation of the style. I’ve had better (including some other offerings from Evil Twin) but I would drink this again. I’ll give this one a 4/5.
