Heretic Brewing Co.’s Evil Twin clone

FREE

Heretic describes Evil Twin as follows: “This blood-red ale may not be what you might expect from a malty and hoppy craft beer. Evil Twin has a rich malt character, without being overly sweet. It has a huge hop character, without being overly bitter. It is a great example of a bold, rich, balanced craft beer, without being heavy and hard to drink in quantity. Our Evil Twin is only bad because it is too good to resist.”

Ninkasi Brewing Co.’s Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout clone

FREE

Ninkasi describes Vanilla Oatis Oatmeal Stout as, “Characterized by a roasted front flavor, smooth rich oats, a touch of chocolate flavor, and a rich vanilla complexity imparted by whole vanilla beans. To achieve this higher level of decadence, we added in whole vanilla beans to the final stage of conditioning — the same process we use to dry hop a beer. It is bigger than a traditional stout with more alcohol, body, and a touch more bitterness to keep it balanced.”

This is a black IPA that is enhanced with some rye malt. It pours a very dark brownish-black color with a nice billowing light tan head. Big tropical fruit and citrus rind aromas mix with sweet brown sugar and subtle rye notes. Lots of silky body creates great mouthfeel that showcases the rye and roasted malts. The silky body of this beer also delivers loads of tropical hop flavor with slight pine resin to the middle of your tongue. It finishes very balanced with a soft bitterness that goes well with the dark malt framework.
