Beer Name: No Hero

Brewer: Evil Twin Brewing, Brooklyn, New York, USA

Date Sampled:  28th February 2017

ABV: 7%

Serving Type: Can

Location Sampled: Home

Undoubtedly one of my favourite brewers, Evil Twin have a reputation for cranking out top quality, strong and often completely bonkers beers. Falco was good,  Even More Jesus was brilliant and Imperial Biscotti Break is one of the best beers I have ever drunk.

So how does No Hero stack up? Well yeah, it's another good one!

This Oatmeal Stout sits in the glass like crude oil; thick, black and wonderfully glossy. It has a mocha coloured head that whilst initially has a thick sponge like appearance, doesn't really hang around long.

The nose isn't complicated but it is powerful, with black treacle being the main feature along with just a hint of vanilla.

The black treacle continues to be the main event when it comes to the tasting, but this time liquorice is the partner in crime. Then as the beer warms up slightly there is also a hint of honey comb (cinder toffee) to the finish.

No Hero isn't quite up to the amazingly high standards of the previous Evil Twin stouts that I've enjoyed but it's still a great beer and one that any lover of thick dark beers should try at some point.
