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!!
