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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3

Picked up a few bottles of Evil Twin when they showed up in town & haven't been overwhelmed yet, hoping this one will do the trick. 22 oz. bottle split with my wife.

Pour is lively & a deep, mordor black. Nose is a step up, with gently roasted coffee beans cut with a whole lotta dark chocolate, which results in a more even, sweeter coffee-like aroma. Nice balance.

Biscotti Break has that X-factor that I can't quite put my tongue on. In a photocopy of the nose, the roast is cut perfectly with a nice dark chocolate & a slapdash of liquid black licorice - enough to taunt the taste buds but not enough to be offensive, since I hate black licorice, but it's nice here. Mouthfeel is gorgeous: thick, rich, decadent. End is big, sweet malts. My quibble with the beer is in the drinkability. I could have been one-and-done with a two or three ounces taster. Half a bomber is beginning to wear a bit.

Very good, but the licorice cuts into my enjoyment somewhat. Easily the best beer from this brewery I've had to date. (1,022 characters)

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. (1,515 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Smooth, silky, black, asking you to just have one more. It certainly doesn't drink like its 11.5% ABV, but don't let it fool you.

Pours solid black with a nice dark tan head and slight lacing.

Smell is slighlty sweet with just a hint of what is to come. after warming up a bit the almond started to come through stronger.

The taste is where it's really at for me. The slight sweetness balances the slight bitterness and everything just comes together to get that biscotti flavor Evil Twin was going for.

Overall a very solid beer! (534 characters)

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Looking like a beautiful dark brown/black pour this beer looks extremely appetizing. Smell is a light mixture of cocoa, roasted malts, hints of toffee and char. Also there's something in there like toasted marshmallows. Powdered and roasted and burnt chocolate is in the taste. The toffee in the nose is there as well but there is definitely a very pleasant burnt and charred note to it, especially in the finish. The mouthfeel is very light and sparsely carbonated. I wish it had just a touch more of the body to balance the beer out slightly more.

Overall, a great beer. Most definitely a pleasure to drink. (610 characters)

4.74/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 5

Pours pitch black color with bubbles racing up it like champagne to a thick creamy 2 finger brown Guinness looking head that was full of tiny bubbles and faded pretty slowly and left really good spotty lacing as it slid back down and settled into a inch creamy layer on top.

Smells like a chocolate chip cookie dunked into an espresso, with cocoa powder, coffee beans, roasted malt/grains, burnt wood, mocha, molasses, caramel and light alcohol; the smoky and chocolate notes work well with the coffee and burnt grains and contain the alcohol which allows the complex malt nose to actually come off sweet and almost fruity with toasted nuts and chocolate dipped anything. A really impressive and enjoyable nose that was so inviting a kid would sip this mistaking for a chocolate drink.

Tastes like the nose smells, but richer and more like an espresso mixed with cookie dough. Flavor was a blend of coffee beans, roasted malt/grains, cocoa powder, roasted nuts, burnt wood, mocha, vanilla, molasses, caramel, light alcohol like bourbon or barrel aging, dark chocolate, faint citrus hops or lemon, mild earthy notes like peat moss and some brown sugar. The smoky malts, coffee and chocolate were the strongest flavors, but as this warmed up there were a lot more accents that had funky and bitter aspects that brought waves of sweetness that washed away any noticeable alcohol presence and left dessert and biscotti-like aftertastes lingering as the brew left a semi dry finish. Everything I look for in an imperial stout came through with each sip.

Mouthfeel is thick and chewy, but smooth as silk and buttery on the tongue with a creamy light feel despite the true weight; light carbonation, the body is on the heavy and dense side, and there is a slightly bitter aftertaste that is a combo of coffee, dark chocolate, lemon zest, burnt grains and charred wood or a marshmallow that fell in the coals – the taste is sweet like bakers chocolate, vanilla and dark roasted Kona coffee beans, and it’s absolutely delicious.

Outstanding stout with robust flavors, minor hop accents for balance that hid the alcohol, sweet flavors that were rich but not overdone and great dessert qualities that made every sip a little different, but all 22 ounces extremely enjoyable. An excellent stout and a beer that I highly recommend and will buy more of very soon. I suggest treating yourself to this beer as it will provide a great buzz to go along with the great flavor. Well done Evil Twin. (2,490 characters)

A: Very nice color and head retention

S: The strong suit of the beer, very sweet aroma

T: This is a little too sweet for my tastes and the aftertaste lingers a bit too long.

M: Average for this style

O: This was kind of a let down for me, I was expecting more biscotti taste but this seemed to taste just like other sweet imperial stouts. For the price, I will not buy this again. (384 characters)

look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Pours dark black with a one finger mocha head, with nice retention and lacing for an 11.5 % abv beer. the aroma has dark roasted malt, coffee beans, cocoa, chocolate, biscotti, and caramel.

Tastes almost exactly like it smells with dark roasted malt, coffee beans, cocoa, chocolate, biscotti, and caramel. Has a nice balance between sweetness and bitterness. There is also some noticeable alcohol, but it is not intrusive.

Medium to full bodied with modest carbonation. Smooth, creamy, and easy to drink. Definitely worth trying if you get the chance. (554 characters)

4.54/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.75 | overall: 4.5

A: Pours utterly black, viscous with a medium brown head that lasts longer than expected (given the 11.5% alcohol content).

S: Sweet, amaretto-like almond character as well as coffee, dark chocolate and roasted malt in the nose.

T: Sweet iced coffee, almond, blackened malt, excessively dark chocolate, yet there is a sweetness to it.

M: Full bodied and creamy smooth.

O: I did not expect this beer to smells so sweet or taste quite as bitter as it is (not that it's all that bitter, it's about as bitter as coffee), and the addition of coffee probably cuts what would probably be too much sweetness. I'd definitely recommend this beer. (640 characters)

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

No date on the bottle just Best before 2015 on the label. Produced and bottled by Westbrook Brewing. Pours black and slightly thick viscosity. An attractive chocolate colored two finger head that had good retention before settling to a thick cap. Sheets of lacing is left down the glass.

Aroma of bitter chocolate and roasted malt. A little disappointed that I cannot pick out much for coffee. No sign of alcohol.

Slightly improved flavor. Very heavy with the chocolate but some coffee hints finally makes an appearance. Bitterness seems to come from the roasted malt but this stout is on the sweeter side. Slight alcohol flavor and warmth.

Thick and rich body. Really nice carbonation gives the body a smooth, gentle texture that is well suited for a big stout.

Got the beer at a considerable discount and I am happy about that. I was hoping for a lot more coffee. More of a sweet chocolate stout that turns out to be slightly disappointing. (946 characters)

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

22 oz bottle. Pours dark brown/black with a medium creamy brown head that slowly goes to a thin film that leaves a little lacing.

The aroma is sweet fudgy chocolate with some roast, flowers and some tart fruit.

The flavor is sweet lactic chocolate with some roast coffee, vanilla, fruit and a fairly bitter finish. The alcohol is warming but not overbearing. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, it's OK. Too sweet and alcoholic for me. The floral fruitiness didn't mesh well with the roast chocolate to me. (536 characters)

Bomber of Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break

Near chewy body with carbonation that struggles to keep up but is not obviously too low.

Rich flavor, even for style. Features lots of dark chocolate and a bit of coffee. A bit too sweet up until the finish. (253 characters)

22oz bottle poured into a snifter
A-Pours as black as they come with a large khaki head.
S- A little bitter coffee roast but on the sweeter side, A hint of dark fruit and a silky smooth caramel.
T- A perfect balance of bitter roasted malt and sweet caramel malt. A lingering roast flavor. A touch of char and ash. The sweetness helps keep it from being too dry and ads a lot of toffee and caramel flavor. No alcohol flavor to speak of. Really well balanced and easy to drink spite its size.
M- Very thick and heavy but balanced and drinkable.
O- A very, very awesome stout. One I would love to see in a barrel. (612 characters)

Pitch black, 1/2 inch head, no lace.

The smell is banana bread, coffee and earth.

The taste really outdoes the smell. Chocolate, coffee, bready sweetness and a hint of bitterness from the hops. Goes down very smooth.

Not overly sweet, but very well balanced and worth a try. (277 characters)

Bomber poured into a snifter.

Great appearence after the first pour. Looks like a great imperial stout. Smell was incredible out of the bottle, but has changed slightly as it warms up. Lots of chocolate bar flavor in the taste, but there is something I just can't put my finger on. Almost like some sort of salty taste - like a soy sauce soaked oyster. Still tastes very good, but not as good as I was expecting. (414 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Pours solid black, with a frothy brown head and dissipates after a few minutes leaving a consistent light lacing around the perimeter of the glass.

Smell is amazing, chocolate and coffee, sweetness leaves you floating sky high waiting for that first sip. Lives ups to its namesake, smells like a chocolate cookie.

Taste leaves you wanting, coffee taste is not well done, taste like pourly made bitter expresso. As you progress though the drink the bitterness fades but the taste left is more like an oatmeal stout or milk stout and does not have the viscosity one looks for in a top notch imperial.

flat smooth mouth feel.

Overall the beer is not bad but does not live up to the hype. (689 characters)

eyes...
dark cocoa head with micro bubbles rising about one finger and grasping the sides of the glass with an iron .. er... grip? I turned away for a minute and so did the head... man it ran away quicker than that thing you found in your morning bed that ONE time in college, this is as dark as they come, pretty good looking

nose...
bready coffee, dark chocolate, the coffee aroma is very strong, it smells like actual brew, maybe not dark roast but getting there, this almost smells like fresh toll house cookies, there is also a strong sweet note - almost saccharin-ish with a smidge of vanilla, dee-lish

taste etc...
near motor oil thick with just a hint of bite from the carbonation at the end, the flavor is as full as the aroma, this teeters on boozy but does not dive off into the deep end, I am getting more chocolate (dark, bitter) than I am coffee notes but the coffee seems to add a touch too the finish which hangs out a long time, it really coats the mouth, almost feels like drinking hershey's syrup, as I go further into this good dark night I am sensing the coffee more prominently and not as much vanilla/chocolate sweetness, this is a tasty monster and
damn seductive one at that, the ABV is sneaky as all get out, this the jack russel of impy stouts, get out!

verdict?
another home run from evil twin, this one ain't a cheap date though but it is hard to argue with the end product from this purveyor of fermented nectar (1,445 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a tan head that sticks around for a bit before fading to a ring. Color is a deep brown nearing black.

Flavors: the biggest thing here is the Belgian/European flavor take on the style. The yeast and malt give it away. There is coffee, Belgian chocolate, cocoa, molasses, vanilla, maple syrup, and some alcohol present. roasted malt profile.

Mouthfeel: roasted with some syrupy sweetness. Full bodied with the right amount of carbonation. Ends fairly clean.

Overall, this was a great beer and even more enjoyable than the regular. Just a solid European imperial stout. (575 characters)

Poured from a 650 ml bottle into a snifter.

A: Black. Pours a slight, bubbly, dark brown head. Settles quickly, leaving a beer ring only. No real lacing.

S: Roasted coffee, dark chocolate, and booze.

T: Bittersweet dark chocolate is prominent, a little roasted coffee, a touch of black licorice, and some plum and fig.

M: Thick, hearty, syrupy, and a little boozy. A bit of sweetness in the front, and a touch of bitterness in the finish.

D: Sip and savor.

Atmosphere is really nice. Dark and intimidating, not real head or lacing. Roasted coffee, dark chocolate are really prominent in the nose, and a bit of booze. Dark chocolate is a big part of the flavor profile as well, some bitter roasted espresso beans, and savory sweet earthy fruit. Overall, this is a great quaff. (781 characters)

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Black. Creamy brown head. No lacing that I can see.

Smell: Rich and delicious. Biscotti, I suppose. Coffee and chocolate laden. So much it's ridiculous. I don't get the alcohol one bit.

Taste/feel: To be honest, reminds me quite a lot of their Imperial Doughnut Break, as it has that same sort of doughiness (though not quite to the same extent), but with more and better flavor. Great creamy feel with a mild/moderate mouthfeel. Quite sweet, but also a deep roasted flavor with some bitterness on the finish. A lot of alcohol warmth here that dries the mouth right up. The alcohol can't be tasted at all, but certainly felt.

Incredibly good beer. $18 for a 22oz bottle is definitely a pretty hefty price, but it's also one hell of a hefty brew. A fantastic biscotti/dough/coffee/sweet nose that tastes almost just as good. A big beer that's well worth trying. One of the best beers I've ever had, for sure. A bit on the sweeter side, but that's to be expected from this beer, I think... but that's just a nitpick. BUY THIS BEER. (1,044 characters)

Appearance - dark brown, nearly jet black beer with mocha colored head

Smell - dark chocolate, black licorice, almonds, coffee

Taste - chocolate, dark chocolate, almonds, coffee, slight black licorice, vanilla, fudge, espresso

Mouthfeel - heavier side of medium bodied, low carbonation, balanced flavors, flavors linger, ABV is imperceptible

Overall - good stout that comes in a bit below the hype. Worth a try but at the price point a re-visit is doubtful

Price Point - $13.99/22 oz bottle (495 characters)

Appearance: Dark tannish brown head. Nice lacing of thick and viscous liquid bread.

Smell: Very enticing smell of Coffee and dark chocolate, brown sugar, caramel, and cream.

Taste: Well hidden booze out of that caramel and creme. I can drink this brew any time.

Mouthfeel: Viscous and chewy...light heavy feel. I might be bias on this one coz' I had a stronger beer before this. I could've mess with my palate before I had this but it still came out awesome.

Overall: This brew is amazing! I'll seek it again. I hope it becomes available more often in my area . It's all worth it. (587 characters)

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... (1,240 characters)

*22 Oz. Bottle*

Look: Midnight black with a 1 finger deep mocha head. It looks like used diesel motor oil.

Smell: Chocolate/ cocoa nibs, sweet molasses, burnt grains fused with coffee.

Taste: Chocolate, roasted sweet malts, burnt coffee bitterness, cookie dough, espresso, vanilla/ chocolate as finishes.

Feel: Medium body, mild soft carbonation.

Overall: This reminds me of the Caravel Ice Cream Cake blended with my morning cup of espresso. Very smooth to the point its almost ridiculous. 11.5 ABV that is not detectable. Drinkable beyond belief for such a big beer. Sweet and bitter. I’m sure it isn’t the best Imperial Stout brewed today, but it is pretty close. Recommended.

Poured into a tulip glass.
A: Almost black with a mahogany rim. A tan half finger head that whittles down to a bubble ring. Thick, viscous. Curtainy lacing.

S: Heavenly. Coffee and chocolate dominate. Vanilla, lactose, sugar, marshmallows.

T: Wow, sip and be awed. Cascades of dark chocolate, followed by coffee notes. Vanilla and malts slide in. You don't really notice the alcohol, but it creeps in later to sooth the savage beast. Very smooth, semi-sweet. Decadent.

M: Medium to heavy with medium, chewy carbonation.

O: Worth all the hype. A great after dinner drink to share with friends. Terrific with a brownie. (623 characters)

Finally giving this a proper review. I had a small pour of this on tap in Chicago, and while I thought it was sweet, it merited enough attention from me to purchase a bottle as soon as I could find one. Poured out of a 22oz bomber into a tulip glass. Consumed over the course of three days as I would a fortified dessert wine. Purchased 4 months ago.

Pours the equivalent of a store bought chocolate syrup or syrupy additive - although, on the bright side, there's still an intense, dark mahogany head about 2 fingers tall, with enormous bubbles, that crowns the top of the beer with a slightly aggressive pour at the finish. It does not last very long, however, and when all but a ring is left, the liquid itself is pitch black. Every swirl reveals enormous alcohol legs, and slightly stains the glass with a brownish color. The rim variation is intense on this, showcasing changes to a light ruby tinge at the top with each swirl. The final pours produced some intense sediment at the bottom, which was a bit surprising. A monstrous, intense, ridiculous looking imperial stout.

The aroma really is a beauty, nevertheless. Wonderful, warm notes of roasted coffee beans, as well as a dark chocolate flavor, all soaked in dark fruits resembling raisins, cherry pits, and molasses. No vanilla or almonds at first, but the more this warms up, the roasted, bittered coffee flavor takes a complete nosedive and is replaced by a caramelized sugar forward, nutty flavor that doesn't so much remind me of a biscotti, but rather some kind of intense brownie or fudge that's filled with toasted nuts and caramel. Smells very nice, although I have no clue why the beer radically changes over time in the aroma.

Luckily, my fears of this beer being far too sweet or syrupy for consumption were completely blown away upon the first sip. While it showcases a firm, well structured bitterness and roasted character from the coffee - as well as the chocolate flavor - at first, it soon dwells into an immensely sweeter yet never cloying dessert beer. Huge notes of milk chocolate, caramel, fudge, and sweet raisins come in, with the vanilla and almonds becoming more noticeable with each sip. This continuously loses its carbonation over time, and I'm not sure if this influences the process, but it definitely elevates it to a liqueur-like status towards the finish. I believe this is merely an excessively sensitive beer to room temperature - by the finish, there was a cocoa butter aftertaste that made this the equivalent of having a high quality made brownie. Gets a little syrupy at the finish, but this is thick enough and not too excessively sweet that it never becomes a problem. I really, absolutely enjoyed drinking this overall.

I'm fairly certain that this is my new favorite dessert beer, and even though it took a few days to finish, it was definitely a welcome rich offering to turn to after dinner, and pair with some dark chocolate to help cut some of the sweetness. Somehow, all of the factors come together without ever becoming too sweet. This makes this a very drinkable offering of its kind, and I'd definitely be happy to revisit this again when the time is right. (3,176 characters)
