Evil Twin: Soft Dookie (Imperial Stout) – From the ‘Other’ Brother.

Brewed at Amager Brewery, which brews a wide range of beers for others like Mikkeller and Xbeeriment, this Danish imperial stout know as Evil Twin Soft Dookie is extremely flavorful and one that I will certainly buy again. In fact, Evil Twin Brewing is operated by Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, the “twin” bother of Mikkeller owner Mikkel Borg Bjergsø. 

Soft Dookie's life outside the bottle begins with a foamy, medium-sized beige head and an inviting super dark brown color. The lacing is decent, but I’ve seen far better and expected a lot more from this one. The aroma is powerful: vanilla, dark chocolate, burnt malts, molasses, and a hint of alcohol. It smells like a desert in a bottle. Soft Dookie's mouth feel is creamy, although less so than expected. The taste is bitter sweet: vanilla galore, dark chocolate, roasted malts, and coffee beans. There’s a bit of a boozy taste in the background, but nothing like what might be expected from a drink with a 10.4 percent ABV.

Given the quality of Evil Twin's Soft Dookie, as well as the quality of Mikkeller brews, the Bjergsø family must certainly be proud of these two brothers.
