Beer added by: BlackBelt5112203 on 04-12-2012

The Roman Empire had a certain "je ne sais quoi" - festive food culture, extravagant architecture, and spectacular live entertainment. Some might argue the Emperors were brutal, mad, and hungry for power, and the people vain when taking baths and working out all day. Listen - that's still all part of the secret Imperial ingredient - keep it cool, clean, confident, arrogant, and flamboyant. Forza Imperiale.

A - Pours midnight black with a one-finger tan head. Nice soapy lacing.

S - Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and coffee.

T - The taste follows the aroma perfectly. Dark chocolate, sweet dark fruits, vanilla, and dark roasted malts throughout. The finish has a strong coffee flavor that produces a nice lingering bitterness.

M- Full bodied with low carbonation. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. The finish has a lingering alcohol warmth.

O - A fantastic imperial stout. The flavors are very bold and strong. Outstanding.

Poured from a 22oz bottle I to a duvel glass

A: dark as night black with two finger of mocha chocolate after a semi aggressive pour.... Man this looks superbly delicious.... A wonderful looking beer. The only thing keeping this brews appearance from a 4.5 is that I wish it had heavier lacing... .

S: the smell reminds me of the milk left over after a bowl of coco puffs, Tina of milk chocolate and vanilla, a light roast in the background, which must be the coffee beans, becoming a bit more prevelant as the brew warms, deffinatly a touch of dark malty sweetness in there as well, the chocolate aroma also reminds me
Of hot coco. Hints of light nuttiness are also starting
To poke through, and a almost dark chocolate cherry aroma... It seems to just be getting more and more complex

T: much like the nose.... Loads of milk chocolate with strong notes of vanilla, over more subtle notes of roasted coffe witha touch of dark fruit and malt sweetness on the finish, very well rounded and delicious, I feel like the 11.5 abv on this beer is very well hidden. A bit on the deserty sweet side of things. As this beer the beer warms more and more.... Becoming more and more mocha-y. With light nutty and dark cherry notes. A bit of caramel in the tastes as well... I could go on and on.

M: medium to heavy in the body, nice and creamy, with a nice thickness and velvety drunkability very well rounded, a touch of dryness on the finish reminding me of the beers name. Deffinatly seems to be a dessert beer to me. Medium carbonation. A sippe for sure, couldn't see myself drinkin more then one of these in a night.

O: a very tasty and delicious brew, glad I got my hands on this one, unique and delectable, I'd recommend this one in a heart beat. More and more layers off developing complexity. I love it. Wish ingot to try the original, anyone got one? Let me know if you do!!!

Bottle from Potsdam IGA.

A - Black with a one finger tan head. Good carbonation coming up. No retention, no lace. Sorta to be expected for the ABV.

S - Huge coffee/mocha aroma right away when the bottle is opened. Chocolate becomes alot stronger after a few sniffs, vanilla, whiskey, iced coffee.. Nice.

T - Nice big coffee flavour with vanilla, roast, sweet chocolate. Lot's of different flavours. Great sweetness.

M - Decent carbonation, very dry finish, big old creamy body.

O/D - A nice imperial stout. Hardcore in all departments. Lot's of aggressive elements of chocolate and coffee and far too easy to drink for its strength. Quite nice.

Pours an opaque onyx with minimal cappuccino head that lingers as a thin layer of foam.

Coffee and espresso complement booze and slightly charred roast malt in the initial aroma. Chocolate and hints of fruity peppers add complexity.

Chocolate and espresso dominate the flavor, with fruity pepper underlying. The finish is slightly bitter. Tobacco and dark cherry add complexity. Very rich malt profile. Sweet at first, but finishes dry and a bit boozy. Notes of vanilla, caramel, and nutty, toasted malt surface as it warms.

Body is full, smooth, and creamy with nearly no carbonation and significant alcohol warmth.

Delicious malt profile, with enough booziness to not overwhelm. I'm not a coffee drinker, so there's too much of that for my palate, but it's good quality and other characters dominate. Was hoping for more complexity.

Pours black with a thin tan head and some nice lacing. Smell is very nice - a great mix of coffee and chocolate. Taste is quite nice - it's very roasty, but there is a great mix of flavors going on here. It's a little sweet, and the coffee and chocolate come through very nicely here. It's quite drinkable for as big and bold of a stout as this is. Mouthfeel is thick and a bit oily, but quite nice. Overall, this is pretty impressive - best beer I've had from Evil Twin and the first one I'd go out of my way to seek out.

22oz bottle poured into Founders snifter.

A- Pours an opaque jet black with a very thin creamy mocha head that recedes to a flat top. Minimal lacing that fades fast, mostly alcohol legs, fairly low carbonation.

S- Fresh baker's chocolate, some milk chocolate, coffee, bit of bread, some booze thats well integrated. Aromas are well balanced and fairly aromatic, however I could do with a little bit less booze in the aroma.

T- Creamy dark chocolate, milk chocolate, coffee with a hint of bitterness, light malts, a bit of booze, finishes with smooth creamy chocolate. Nicely balanced and very tasty.

M- Creamy, abv very well hidden for 11.5%, finishes very smooth, fairly low carbonation but appropriate for style, extremely drinkable.

O- This was a fantastic imperial coffee stout from Evil Twin although it probably isn't my favorite from them (I liked Even More Jesus slightly more) or coffee stout in general. Personally for coffee stouts I think the only one that beats this is Peche Mortel. The only thing I disliked in this beer was that it could have been slightly less boozey (maybe 9-10% instead of 11.5%). That being said this beer was excellent and I would definitely drink it again even with the $17 price tag.

Chose a beer I've been waiting to try to break in my first full review!

Poured from a bomber into stout glass.
Appearance was spot-on black with hints of deep brown on the edges. A small frothy chocolate milk head appeared and dissipated as quickly as it showed up.

The smell, which I had been looking forward to, slightly disappointed. I got vanilla, dark chocolate, roast coffee, and something oaked at the end. It could just be me, but none of the smells really stood out or knocked me out. I would have liked to have seen one take charge.

The taste...wow! This stout brought it all to the tongue. The bitter coffee hits you right away with that great coffee bean acidity, but then the chocolate takes hold at the finish. I had let my bottle sit out for 5-10 minutes after opening to warm slightly and it did the trick. The warm chocolate finish stayed on the tongue and blended perfectly with the strong warming alcohol presence. YUM!

Mouthfeel was great...creamy, smooth, and rich at the same time. My mouth kept tricking me into thinking I had a delicious milkshake. This is how a stout should go down. You only know it's a high ABV by the tiny twang you get at the end.

Overall this is a great Imperial stout and well worth the wait I went through for it. After recently trying Ten Fidy and the Oak Aged Yeti, I put this in roughly the same level, giving the nod to the other two simply on availability.

The growler I had a pour from was a bit under carbonated, but here we go. Thanks David Rosen!

The pour is pitch black with a thin head. I cant tell the color its that thing.

The smell, is wow. Biscuit malt everywhere, with a hint of chocolate and a nice dose of malt flavors. Very sweet, but in a good way.

ok I need to move on to the taste. This thing tastes amazing. The sweet flavors really dominate the bitterness from anywhere. Theres a nice hint of almond that adds a nice bit of complexity that makes it amazing.

it feels sticky sweet, but the bitterness from the stout base balances that out. But lets be honest here, the biscotti flavors take over.

Handsome black pour sporting brown head and beady lace. Tons of vanilla in the nose, followed by more breadyness than any other stout I've encountered.

Taste opens up with bread and deeply roasted malt. Mild bourbon and toffee sweetness aren't far behind. Tastes like a loaf of sweetbreads soaked in a top-notch stout. Deserves a 4.25/5 on taste, rounding down here and up elsewhere.

Booze character is plentiful but integrates well with the other flavors. Silky, creamy, viscous body approaches perfection.

Best beer I've had from Evil Twin or Mikkeller, hands down.

22 ounce bottle into snifter, best before 2015. Pours dense pitch black color with a 2 finger dense dark brown head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of huge dark chocolate, cocoa, fudge, espresso beans, roasted malt, dark bread, caramel, vanilla, light nuttiness, and roasted earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great balance and complexity of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and vanilla notes; with great strength. Taste of big dark chocolate, cocoa, espresso beans, roasted malt, fudge, toast, dark bread, caramel, vanilla, light nuttiness, and roasted earthiness. Fair amount of roast/coffee bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark chocolate, cocoa, espresso, roast, fudge, toast, dark bread, caramel, vanilla, light nuttiness, and roasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and vanilla flavors; with a great roasted bitterness/sweetness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-medium carbonation and full bodied; with a very creamy, smooth, moderately slick, and lightly chalky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with only a slight warming present after the finish. Overall this is an outstanding imperial coffee stout. All around awesome complexity and balance of dark/roasted malt, coffee, and vanilla flavors; and very smooth to sip on for the ABV. A highly enjoyable offering.

thanks to trxxpaxxs for sharing!

22oz bottle, fridge temp, poured into a snifter.

a nice opaque black, the slightest bit of brown noticable when held to the light. frothy mocha colored head. good retention, good lace.

milk and dark chocolate, a nice almond like nuttiness, a touch of vanilla, cookie, and roast. a little coffee comes in as it warms.

the flavors follow the aroma, but come in way more intense. it definatly has a biscotti like flavor. a nice almond cookie flavor, caramel, sweet toasty roasted malt, vanilla, hints of chocolate and coffee.

overall, a pretty sweet beer. medium to heavy bodied. smooth and somewhat creamy.

definatly one of the better desert like stouts ive had, a very pronounced biscotti flavor. its worth the steep price tag.

S: Very sweet, mocha. Some roast, rich maltiness. Lots of milk chocolate.

L: Very thick, black, motor oil consistency. Dark tan head that dissipates quickly. Ring of foam.

T: Sweet, mocha like flavors up front with a prominent maltiness. Low bitterness with loads of freshly roasted coffee with milk chocolate notes. Bold, roasty coffee into the finish. Finishes quite sweet.

M: Big, full bodied. Slick mouthfeel. Medium low carbonation.

Great, really enjoyed the coffee in this. Quite sweet, going solo on a bottle was a little much.

Evil Twin tap takeover at Oak & Oar in OKC to celebrate Oklahoma distribution. Pours opaque dark brown with a mocha head. Smells of chocolate, coffee, and oaky vanilla. Tastes of chocolate and brewed coffee, some dark fruit in the background. It's sweet without being cloying. Creamy mouthfeel without being overly thick. It's a solid stout.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Bruery Tulip.

A: Thick deep black oil slick appearance. Aggressive center pour leads to a slowly building hot cocoa colored head. Fades slowly and big thick heavy lacing sticks to the glass.

S: Cocoa, smooth coffee smell. ABV is well hidden. Very nice, yet simple aroma.

T: Such a nice mix of cocoa, coffee, fig, caramel and a hint of a bite at the end.

M: Huge, smooth bodied beer. Smooth toned down carbonation.

O: A wonderful big stout that's smooth and a nice easy drinker. ABV is really no where to be found which is dangerous and beautiful.

Poured into a Duvel snifter glass.

A - 4.75 - Pours jet black in color, forms a good finger of extremely dark tan to light brown colored head. Medium head potential, low head retention. Nice solid rings of lacing.
S - 4.25 - Tons of malts, cakey-cookie-biscuit-breadiness, light and distant dark fruit and coffee.
T - 4.25 - Matches the nose closely. Tons of sweet malt, on the border of cake/cookie flavor, medium amount of coffee. Not much chocolate. Slightly boozy and very warming.
F - 4.75 - Nice thick, creamy mouth feel. Full body.
O - 4.25 - One of the better imperial stouts that I have had in a long time.

This poured out as a deep dark black color, there was a nice looking mocha colored head on top. The retention and lacing don't last too long. The smell of the beer is heavily roasted with a subtle sweetness to it also. The taste of the beer starts off with a bit bitter roasted flavor, some burnt sugar in the also. The flavors are chocolatey and sweet and finishes with a dry bitterness. The mouthfeel is oily and silky, it's very smooth with a thick body to it. Overall this beer is quite impressive. I enjoyed this quite a bit. Probably the best Evil Twin available right now.

Awesome bomber from dope (thanks man!) split with my brother, with my portion poured into a Deschutes tulip.

A: Dense, opaque black with thin brown head and decent lacing & alcohol legs.

S: Sweet alcohol; vanilla and almond really dominate, with some coffee and caramel mixed in for good measure. Decent roasted malt presence with plenty of sugary sweetness.

T: Sweeter here, as well; vanilla and caramel upfront. Less alcohol is tasted here than smelled. Decent amount of chocolate and coffee as well.

MF: Medium-to-full body, viscous and creamy. Carbonation was pretty low on this thing but didn't distract at all (though I would have preferred a little more to cut through the sweetness).

O: Really good, and way too easy to drink for how big it is (and even how much felt alcohol there is). Would have preferred a touch more coffee as well, to balance the sweetness, but my complaints are minor.

Thanks to whomever broke this one out for the tasting... Pours a deep, dark black with only little bits of dark-ass ruby red along the edges. Small tan head forms for a moment, then lapses into a small ring around the glass; not much lacing left behind.

The nose starts off with a thick and heavy, deeply roasted espresso aroma - coffee beans left and right. A bit of nuttiness and creamy sweetness round things out. Overall, this one is pretty straightforward on the nose, but it's one of the best "coffee" aromas I've had the pleasure of smelling. Very raw, pure, and robust - this is how coffee should smell when it's introduced to a beer.

The first flavor to pop is a super sweet coffee/espresso combination - there is a deep, roasted quality in the background, but a bit more noticeable is the "cream and sugar" aspect of it, raising the drinkability without being too sweet or cloying. Intense creaminess leads into a milky brown sugar flavor, followed by burnt syrup and mild molasses. Vanilla and hazelnut play small parts in the background, but are definitely noticeable.

I'm sensing a bit of underlying dark fruits and a slight touch of anise. The alcohol is warming and adds to the robustness without being too scary or demanding. Aftertaste is full of a deep java and mocha flavor, with a bittersweet chocolate element that coats the mouth even after swallowing. This one feels a bit thinner than expected; medium bodied with medium carbonation, still carrying a pretty creamy and silky mouthfeel.

Wow! What a damn good beer. This was one of my favorites from the tasting. So tasty and drinkable for being such a bold and heavy beer. Beautiful coffee and espresso notes with little hints of cocoa, vanilla, and sugar. An absolute pleasure to drink.

Dark brown color, almost black. There's no head whatsoever, even from an aggressive pour. There's only a thin ring of minor carbonation around the rim.

The aroma is really heavy on the coffee and almonds. There's a pleasant aroma of bakers chocolate and touch of vanilla.

No shit. This stuff really tastes like biscotti and a cup of coffee. It's really uncanny. Almonds, coffee, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and chocolate all pop out. It has a long finish of bitter coffee.

Mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The body is heavy but I never would have guessed it was over 11% abv because the alcohol is nearly undetectable.

This was a fantastic beer. It kind of reminded me of some of Southern Tier's offerings like Creme Brulee, Mokah, etc, but much more modest and I mean that in a very good way.

Appearance - Jet black with a medium viscosity and a thick 1/4 inch head that dissipates quickly. Carbonation bubbles coat the glass.

Smell - sweet, slightly roasted, milk chocolate, fresh baked bread (wheat), a hint of vanilla, and touch of a marzipan.

Taste - Immediately, an almond milk chocolate candy bar combined with vanilla wafers. The nutty, marzipan flavor comes through. Dark roasted malt flavors, but not overly so. Finishes with a dark salted chocolate, espresso-like flavor with just a hint of bitterness. I think chocolate dipped almond biscotti (given the name) is an excellent adjective to describe this beer. This is a sweeter style stout but even at 11.5%, the alcohol flavor is well hidden.

Mouthfeel - Not as thick as its deep color suggests. Smooth with medium carbonation. Slightly chewy.

Overall - I tried this about a month ago and immediately bought another bottle. It's delicious, sweet, and surprisingly easy to drink. More of an after-dinner beer. Some may find this too sweet but it suits my palate. Well worth $15 and worth seeking out.

22 oz bottle poured into a Toppling Goliath Snifter

A- Very attractive Imperial Stout. Nice one finger dark brown frothy head, dissipates slowly, really nice lacing sticks to the glass. Color is pitch black, no light is getting through this baby.
S- BIG coffee upfront, some brown sugar comes out, some vanilla as well, the coffee is just awesome, takes over everything. Slight chocolaty aroma as well.
T- Wow so rich, big roast upfront, espresso coffee, dark chocolate, bitter sweetness, vanilla, everything i could ask for in a non barrel aged Imperial Stout, very easy to drink the alcohol is no where to be seen.
M- Big mouthfeel, thick as it goes down, sticky on the palate
O- Really impressed with this beer, allot of taste in this one, love the rich vanilla coffee taste, just lingers in your mouth after every sip. Hard to stop drinking it. Usually i would share a bottle of this with a friend, but right now I'm very glad I'm having this solo.

Bomber, poured into snifter. A post-dinner digestive.

A - Well, we have a warm-black impenetrable with a nice dark-taupe head, which sticks around even after it's settled.

S - No big surprise, but this is all dark-roast, dark chocolate, and some sweet-boozy edge that portends the 11.5% ABV.

T - Like chocolate and cherry, melting in your mouth as you have a sip of Irish coffee. The coffee is not as prominent as I'd expect given the bouquet and the billing. The cherry/cream/booze accents perks up the whole business.

M - Thick and oily as you'd expect. Heavy enough to keep you pacing yourself.

O - Well, this works as a fine, playful nighttime treat. I'd put it in the same category as Ten FIDY, Brooklyn Black Chocolate, Peche Mortel or any number of other fine dark, boozy, sweet stouts. That's to say it's tasty without separating from the pack. I'd gladly enjoy from time to time, but with so many great Imperial Stouts out there I don't see myself seeking it out. Nonetheless, would recommend unreservedly.

22oz. bottle poured into a Bourbon County Snifter. Bottled on 11/05/10. Thanks to Hugonaut13 for the bottle.

Appearance: Dark brown with a 1/2" tan head that quickly recedes to a cap and leaves some nice lacing.

Smell: Sweet almond,vanilla, and chocolate in that exact order of dominance

Taste: Almond up front with sweet chocolate and a whole lot of vanilla flavor. This beer is a flavor bomb with so much depth, so tasty. It pushes the envelope on sweetness but not to far, remarkably good for a beer on the sweet side. It never becomes cloying.

Mouthfeel: Very creamy and rich.

Overall: Really a delicious beer, a massive amount of flavor built on the almond, vanilla, & chocolate troika. As I mentioned on the sweeter side but extraordinarily delicious.

A – black with a short, brown head

S – roasted malts, faint spice, a hint of coffee

T – creamy, rich, roasted malts, faint coffee—dessert, much like a biscotti

M – smooth, full bodied, perfectly carbonated

This is a deliciously balanced beer. It’s rich, complex, and smooth. It accomplishes exactly what the name indicates – a biscotti. This would make a perfect after dinner beer or a great cold weather beer. Either way it is well worth a try.
