hard to imagine regular imperial biscotti break improving much. its truly one of the better examples of the style around, and unique enough to be picked out of any crowd of beers. this bourbon edition adds another layer or two of flavor to an already insane beer, and makes the mouthfeel as good as any beer out there. the beer seems shinier than i remember it, radiant in a globe glass, with a clean separation between head and beer. in addition to the cookie-like malt character and heavy barley roast of the base beer, this version has quite a bit more vanilla to it, fresh beans, warming. it also has a little higher alcohol presence than i remember in the base beer too, not sloppy or hot, but just more sturdy. the flavor explodes vanilla, chocolate, licorice, cocoa powder, hot tar, birch tea, chocolate covered espresso beans, and even dried figs. its not as messy as it sounds though, each element well integrated with the next. oak and warming alcohols round it out, smooth as they come. so much body, its almost syrupy, but it somehow finishes clean for what it is, slippery rather than sticky, an uncommon and unexpected feature, but a memorable one. a bottle to share for sure, and one to savor, as it certainly opens up with temperature. maybe a bottle to cellar too, but i cant see it improving much, what would you want to change about it? some of evil twins best work here, no doubt about it.
