Evil Twin Even More Jesus
It’s not the beer I drink most, by far -- I mean, it’s a 12% stout. It’s so over the top. I wouldn’t even say it’s the beer I enjoy the most of my own. But I really think it’s the most perfect beer I’ve ever made. It doesn’t have any coffee or anything like that, it’s big, it’s luscious, it’s crazy, but you can still drink three bottles of it. I mean, it’s weird because I’m talking about my own beer now, but it has the perfect balance between roastiness, and sweetness, and a little bit of smoke. It’s very balanced, very smooth, very drinkable. I haven’t had a lot of big imperial stouts that I enjoy more, and that’s just fine.

Very classy gueuze, made in Belgium in Pajottenland, where you make lambic. Just a fucking perfectly balanced gueuze. Amazing. I mean, it just has what a gueuze should have. It’s so old school, it’s so not trendy, but it’s so perfect, so well crafted. For me to name my favorite beers, it’s difficult of course. But a lot of people say, oh I love Dark Lord, I love all these over-the-top beers because they’re fun and crazy and all that, but for me, I’ve been in the beer industry a long time, so it’s all about finding the perfect balance. You find this beer, and it’s only 4.5% or whatever, and there’s not that much going on, but it’s just well made, and so well thought out, that’s what means more to me.
