A: poured into a snifter to a solid black beer with a half finger of dense tan head that retains well and leaves some lacing
S: smells of coffee, chocolate, a little almond, a slight cherry aroma and some roasted malts
T: taste is coffee, sour cherry, roasted malts, chocolate, almond, slight burnt sugar and charred wood. swallow is roasted malt, charred wood, coffee, bitter dark chocolate and more cherry
M: this beer is full bodied in the mouth, velvety smooth with soft carbonation and a slightly dry finish
O: A nice twist on an already great beer. faantastic flavors and the cherry is subtle instead of being over the top. If you like imperial biscotti break there's no reason you shouldn't enjoy this beer.

APPEARANCE - Dark, opaque, no head, no lacing.

AROMA/SCENT - Fruit, coffee, sweet.

TASTE - Hops, nalts, bitter, sweet, nutty, coffee, caramel, chocolate, brown sugar. Boozy.

MOUTHFEEL/PALATE/TEXTURE - Crisp, acidic.

VALUE - One-pint bottle for $30. Ridiculously overpriced.

OVERALL/DRINKABILITY - I don't like Evil Twin. They make silly stunt beers. Just not for me.

22 oz bottle poured into a snifter pint

A: sweet dark night in appearance very little head but what is there us mocha in color

S: The berry smell is huge in the front almost jam quality then some chocolate, and roast

T: huge cherry then lots of chocolate with a bitter roasty maltiness it's a lot like a dark chocolate covered cherry

M: Not bad at all pretty heavy very nice not over the top thick like I live but it's pretty good thinner than regular Imperial Biscotti Break

O: this is damn good surprised how well the cherry compliments the chocolate roast most fruit beers the fruit tastes on a sickly cough syrup quality this is damn good very impressive.

2013 vintage 22 oz bottle, poured into a goblet.

Appearance: Pours a beautiful, completely opaque, pitch-black color, highlighted with some dark reddish hues and a quarter of a finger of caramel/chocolate-colored head that almost immediately dissolved away into a halo of foam that gripped the sides of the glass.

Aroma: Rich! Very malty up front, imparting notes of freshly baked dark bread, espresso, dark chocolate, sour cherries and a touch of vanilla.

Taste: A lot like the aroma. Tons of roasted malt and coffee up front, like a triple espresso with a cappuccino chaser, drunk with toasted pumpernickel, accented with some subtle smoke, followed by tons of dark chocolate, sour cherries and a touch of vanilla and almond-like nuttiness. Delicious!!

Mouthfeel: Chewy and pretty smooth, but not as smooth as the Imperial Biscotti Break. With an ABV of 11.5%, there’s a hint of alcohol warmth on the palate, but I’m surprised that there’s not more of it present.

Overall: Wow! What a beer! Strong, massive, awesome, flavors of roasted malt, dark chocolate, sour cherries, a touch of coffee, vanilla and almonds! Delicious!!
