4.23/5 rDev -3.9%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75
Pitch black with slight creamy chestnut head that passes no light. Patches of creamy lace and a viscous film cling to the snifter glass.
Lots of chocolate syrup, and some sweet black coffee not much else, but simplicity is a good thing here.
Sweet with a little bit of bitterness, while the alcohol is quite present long into the lingering finish. Chocolate and some background of roasted coffee. Chocolate returns in the finish. Warmth is a good friend of this beer.
Very high alcohol, yet smooth texture and little heat. There is little to know carbonation in this dense almost syrupy beer.
Truly one of those savored experiences. Biscotti is a surprisingly and dangerously easy drinking dessert beer good for watching people and sipping slowly.
Serving type: on-tap

4.6/5 rDev +4.5%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 4.5
650ml bottle bought online from CraftBeerCo.. My 1000th beer review so i thought it better be something special
Poured pitch black with no hint of colour even when held up to the light. Burnt brown head poured fairly thick with very small bubbles and a meringue like topping... a good one finger of foam remained throughout.. some thick lacing lines...
Aroma - Lots of roasted sweet chocolate malts backed with caramel and strong coffee, toasted nuts - hazlenuts mainly, quite earthy, some faint citrus notes, light liquorice, lots of brown sugar, honey notes, some light smokiness...
Taste - Tons of dark and milk chocolate up front followed by strong black coffee notes, roasted malts, cocoa powder, vanilla, some light smoke just coming through, dark fruits (raisins and currents), fudge, nut brittle, treacle / molasses, alcohol is not noticeable..
Feel - Smooth and velvety with just a little sharpness underneath... full bodied... pretty drinkable for an 11% brew although becomes quite sweet towards the end...
Overall - A superb example of an imperial stout from Evil Twin although a 650ml bottle would be way too much as the sweetness becomes a little much (i shared this one with my wife) ... definitely recommended though...
