Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

22 oz.

Pours jet black with a dark nutty tan head about two inches thick. The head is fine and firm and dissipates very slowly, retaining as a film.

Smells of rich cocoa, caramel, and coffee over a rich biscuity malt base. Some hints of vanilla and licorice.

Rich, bold flavor is a mixture of coffee, cream, chocolate, caramel, and roasted biscuit malt. Again, hints of vanilla creep through as well.

The body is full with tingling carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Definitely a top-shelf stout, well worth seeking out and trying for fans of the style. Probably have to hand it to his brother, Mikkeler's Brunch Weasel as my current favorite stout, but Evil Twin certainly brings the competition.

WOW!!!
I've been somewhat disappointed by EvilTwin beers so far, so I wasnt sure what to make of this one.

The pour was perfect for a dark jet black stock. The creamy glistening feel as the beer is poured into the glass. Then the light chocolate fluff of a head that stays enough to let you know there is more coming.

The first sip! No chocolate, no coffee, no biscotti flavor, but bursting with deep rich malt that is so perfectly balanced.

Then the second and the third sips, slowly the chocolate and coffee begin to unveil themselves. There was also a fuller sense of alcohol as you drank more of this.

Sticks to your ribs, warms your stomach just making you feel good all over!
