Evil Twin Brewing of Denmark makes a number of Imperial Stouts including a Christmas beer brewed with sour cherries. Christmas Eve At A New York City Hotel Room takes the record for the longest name, and is an excellent Imperial Stout.
Christmas Eve At A New York City Hotel Room pours almost black with a thin tan head that goes to a few bubbles and lace quickly. The aroma is of toasted malts, coffee, raisins, and soy sauce. It tastes thick. It’s rich with bitter dark chocolate, almost-burnt malts, some alcohol presence and bitterness as it goes down. The aftertaste is like that of a sugared double espresso, but without the coffee. It’s pleasant and full. Make sense? It’s 10% ABV.
Evil Twin makes a bourbon barrel aged version called Room Number 603. I look forward to trying it, once I get my hands on a bottle.
Enjoy this sipper!
