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: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 5 | overall: 5

A: Beer pours a black as night body with a very thin dark tan head that quickly disappears.

S: A lot going on with the smell of this beer. I am picking up a lot of chocolate, booze, coffee and even a bit of sweet caramel.

T: Very sweet! There is a smooth coffee flavor that I first pickup.. Its actually almost like chocolate covered coffee beans with a sweet cherry type flavor.I am also picking up a tiny bit of roasted malt, but most of that is covered up by the sweetness of the beer.

M: The mouthfeel is absolutely perfect for an Imperial Stout. There is a tiny of carbonation, with an amazing full body.

O: This is one of the best Imperial Stouts that I have ever had. I would say the only problem with it is that its very sweet and I kind of got tired of it the more I drank it. Other than that, its amazing. I would probably do this in a tasting or split a bottle with somebody next time. (901 characters)

22oz bomber poured into a snifter.

The beer pours a insanely deep jet black color, it's like staring into the abyss. There is a tiny mocha head, tightly packed bubbles, but it recedes quickly leaving behind a modest layer of film and only the most minimal of lacing. The aroma is superb, vanilla, chocolate, roasted coffee, dark pitted fruit and a really interesting nuttiness, almost like a sweeter almond or hazelnut. The flavors are right on queue with the nose, big chocolate profile, almonds, hazelnuts, borderline nutella flavor, great pitted fruit with sweet vanilla and a great backing of roasted coffee and dark malts. They are so perfectly balanced, artfully integrated and executed, each flavor has a chance to shine but also enhances the other aspects. The body is so silky and smooth, rich and creamy that is perfectly drinkable and really helps intensify the rich flavors.

Verdict: Fantastic stout from Evil Twin and by far the best beer I've had from him to date. The flavors are wonderfully balanced and massive enjoyable and the body takes this beer to a new level. The perfect desert beer. (1,110 characters)

22oz into a tulip.

A: Pours a brown-hued black with a large chocolate milk-colored head. The head is thick and sticks around for a while.

S: Mild coffee and some notes of toasted grain and almond, vanilla sweetness.

T: Lots of sugary vanilla, chocolate, coffee, and a bit of nuttiness to it. Mostly sweet.

M: Relatively thick with a creamy consistency.

O: This is very good - very sweet, but very good - a perfect dessert beer. (432 characters)

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Inky black with a small khaki head. Collar of khaki bubbles.

Smell - Vanilla bomb. Coffee. Dark roasted chocolate. Grassy hops in there too.

Taste - Strong vanilla again. Nutty flavor like almonds. Coffee and a strong roasted malt bitterness. Intense flavors. A little bit of acidity, maybe from the coffee.

Mouthfeel - Nowhere near as heavy as I'd expect. Not boozy. Bitter, but otherwise nice.

Overall - Quality beer. The adjuncts are very strong, but still the beer comes through. First time I had this, I wasn't all that impressed. Every time I have it I get more impressed. (654 characters)

a brown dark almost black pour with a finger of dark tan head. 
smells of rich sweet chocolate, floral hops, almond, sweet latte coffee flavor.. Sugary, milky sweet
oh my lord. This is a very well balanced stout. Puckery sweet up front wih lots of caramel and milk chocolate flavors, sweet pecans.. Followed by the toasty coffee/dark roasted grains and grassy buttering hops. This can't get any better.
full body, medium carbonation.. Coats the roof of your mouth. An excellent beer.
soooo glad I changed my mind about trading this. Been saving it for months and damn am I glad I held onto it. An excellent stout, best flavor, perfect feel. (641 characters)

look: 5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A - Pours very dark brown, almost black. Very little off white head that fades almost immediately. Looks and pours exactly like an imperial stout should.

S - Smells like fresh brewed coffee and chocolate

T - The first taste I get is velvety chocolate, followed by a little bit of vanilla, and lots of tasty coffee flavors on the back end. A lot of big imperial coffee stouts have a bitter chocolate taste to them, but I like how this one has a sweet chocolate taste... almost like a milk chocolate flavor. There is almost no alcohol burn either.

M - The mouth feel was a little light for an imperial stout, as I tend to like my big stouts viscous and chewy, but it did have a nice creamy texture.

O - This is a very unique beer and I am glad to have tried it. In my opinion, not all Evil Twin beers are worth the admission price, but this one was. (851 characters)

Poured into a snifter from a bomber.

A Pours a nice black color that is topped off with a thick yet short lived mocha head. Excellent looking beer.

S Lots of dark earthy coffee and not much else. Good but a bit one dimensional.

T The taste pretty much follows the nose with a lot of dark coffee, however there is a bit more going on here with some dark chocolate and a bit of roast. The 11.5 abv is not at all noticeable though.

M Fairly thick and very smooth. No hint of the alcohol at all.

Overall this is a pretty good coffee stout which showcases the coffee without being overly bitter or burnt. Not sure if it lives up to the hype but its still worth seeking out. (678 characters)

Bottle poured into a FFF snifter

A - It pours jet black with a frothy, foamy mocha colored head that leaves nice lacing down the glass. Clean and reflective looking that makes it look extra dark. Nice looking beer with an impressive head for a high ABV stout

S - Great smelling beer. I get vanilla, almond, sweet cream, espresso, dark chocolate, and the sweet fragrance of fresh biscotti that reminds me of my best friend's house as he made fresh biscotti around Christmas. Great and complex nose that makes it one of the best noses I've smelled.

T - Sweet vanilla and slight marzipan hit initally. As the beer moves along, you get roasted espresso and dark chocolate that provide the beer with more bitterness than I'd expect from the nose. The finish is bitter and slightly astringent that leaves a roasted coffee taste that lingers well on.

MF - Lots of carbonation that make it have a bit of a zing to it that leaves a strong tingle on the tongue. The roasted aspect leaves a slight astringency in the finish.

O - A good take on a coffee stout with one of the best noses I've smelled in awhile. The bitter coffee is a bit strong for my taste as it leaves a strong, bitter aftertaste. (1,192 characters)

22 oz bottle, allowed to warm before being poured into my Duvel tulip.

Imperial Biscotti Break pours solid black, with almost three fingers of milk chocolate colored foam crowning the beer. Head retention is very good, but lacing is pretty much nonexistent. The nose is fantastic, with aromas of chocolate covered almonds and a slightly spicy coffee wafting up out of the glass. The great balance present between the two in the aroma is lost a bit in the flavor profile though. The chocolate and almond notes fade way to the background, and the coffee becomes noticeably more prominent. The peppery quality to the coffee is also a bit more apparent here. A subtle vanilla sweetness does make itself known in the finish though. The body is nice and full and creamy, befitting a decadent stout. The minimal support needed from some carbonation just isn't there though and so the beer ends up coming across as fairly syrupy. Imperial Biscotti Break is a fairly tasty stout, and a very nice dessert beer. While I'm only trying a bottle from this second wave, and didn't have any from the first batch, I have to say I don't quite get the hype though. (1,146 characters)

This finally hit the NYC area in bottles, Pours a very nice black and with a swirl of the glass you get a nice brown hue. Little carbonation noted. The taste is really great. Outstanding balance between coffee, chocolate, vanilla and anise. Such a desert beer. Don't age this, drink it fresh if you can! Well done! (314 characters)

look: 2 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

A: Pours black with very little tan head that quickly recedes to a thin ring with no lacing. Looks nearly flat.

S: Roasted malts up front with rich dark chocolate and vanilla following suit. Robust coffee aromas bring up the finish with slight char notes.

T: Holy chocolate, Batman. Rich dark chocolate explodes on the palate like drinking a liquid truffle. Roasted malts with robust and slightly bitter coffee flavors follow along with a decent bit of vanilla. The finish has a light alcohol presence for its abv.

M: Thick body with low carbonation, this beer is a bit sticky in the mouth rather than being creamy.

O: A good beer, overall. It's a bit too sweet and difficult to drink more than a few ounces of at a time (especially an entire bomber), but still tasty before the diabetes kicks in. (801 characters)

Got to try this at Max's thanks to a fine BA friend. Pours a nice dark brown color, minimal head to it. Strong coffee and alcohol aroma. Medium to full bodied, very strong coffee and chocolate notes and the ethanol really comes through on this one. A sipper for sure, but definitely tasty and full of flavor that finishes smooth like a nice mixed drink. (353 characters)

22 oz. bomber poured into a Duvel Tulip style glass. Liquid falls out of the bottle dark fudgey chocolate brown. Gets lighter brown at the slimmer parts. As it pools together in the glass it's basically black in color with almost no highlights. Dark brown colored head with small bubbles at the base of the liquid and makes its way to large bubbles at the top. A large head erupts after a hard pour, and you need to take your time pouring this one if that's your speed. Decent lacing to it, the head eventually leaves a ring for the whole session.

Smell is really good, just the right amount of sweet for a big stout. I've had this both fresh and with some age and it does transform slightly, this particular bottle has a little over a year on it. Fresh you can smell more of what the title suggests with sweet hints of almond followed by some chocolate and coffee. This the almond fades a bit, but still there. Huge malt backbone here and there's generous aromas of bitter chocolate fudge and espresso, a little nutty and some lingering vanilla.

Taste is equally excellent. Large malt backbone again, and a bit nutty again. Tastes like a biscotti stick generously coated with dark chocolate then dipped in a hot cup of dark roasted black coffee. It's phenomenal, it's got a perfect blend of sweet and bitter, it ends with a slight earthy hop flavor, just great.

Mouthfeel is perfect, like much of what Evil Twin does. Nice long lingering flavored full bodied beer. Great carbonation level, super smooth and no heat from the alcohol. Really well balanced, nice sweet start with an appropriate bitter finish, covers the appropriate taste buds when consuming a nice stout. Really drinkable, can go quick if you're not paying attention, it should be savored. Like this beer a lot. (1,781 characters)

651mL thanks to pepsiedcan. Now, officially, I think we can say that gypsy brewing on Westbrook’s system is vastly superior to de Proef or DOG Brewing or Butternuts or any other mumbo jumbo. Pours near ink, viscous, with a large mocha head. Dense, small bubbled reverse cascade head. Sheety lacing. Nose at first was a little salty moving as it warms to heavy salted caramels and sea salted chocolate. Taste is rich, silky, luscious with sweet chocolate, bittersweet chocolate, and big cookie dough and baked crunchy cookie. Very rich and dessert heavy and definitely delivering on all the aesthetics and fundamentals. Palate is mildly lactic, easy to drink, nice balancing bitterness though this beer is still on the sweet dessert side. But no cloying. Really a masterpiece from Jeppe. 6/18/2012 8/4/8/5/16=4.1 (813 characters)

On tap at Blue Dog during the annual wealth of riches.

The beer pours a blackish brown color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is very attractive, as I pick up considerable milk dud aroma, light bourbon, coco powder, light coffee and vanilla. The flavor profile replicatest the nose, though there is a hint of underlying bitterness that helps to balance the moderate sweetness in this excellent stout. Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full, with a fairly long finish. Alcohol is well integrated into the flavor profile, and I really don't get any sense that the abv. is 11.5%. You can tell it's up there, but not that high.

Nice beer... (648 characters)

On-tap

The body sits an ink black with a mocha colored cap. Decent amount of lacing. The nose is of bold coffee with notes of toffee, brown sugar, vanilla, nuts, and lactose sugar. Inviting nose...I kept diving back in for more. On the palate, the flavor profile follows the nose. Cream and lactose sugar mixed with some vanilla and semi-sweet chocolate. Nuts and mild roast dry out a predominantly sweet finish. A little bit of bitter roast balances it out. Full bodied, thick and creamy. This has a lot of milk stout qualities with the flavor profile of biscotti over top. The higher abv is well hidden. I had no idea it was over 11% until I looked it up. Where this beer separates itself from the regular biscotti is in the mouthfeel. (738 characters)

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. (579 characters)

On Tap at Blue Dog

A- Imperial Biscotti Break looks like black coffee with no brown around the edges. The liquid looks pretty thick with a coating quality. A french vanilla looking foamy cap stood on top and faded into small islands with minimal lace.

S- A bold nose that's coffee rich and sweet malt. The malt is very high with caramel and some toffee. The coffee is big but not as pronounced as it could be and it's probably due to the high ABV and added ingredients. The coffee comes off slightly burnt with a sweet milk like scent. There is dark fruit as well which turns me off.

T- This tastes exactly like it smells, which I don't find often in coffee stouts. Sweet/ creamy milked up coffee with chocolate and some dark fruit in the finish which is pleasant. A little tootsie roll action with a big malt addition leading to more sweetness in the finish. Pretty roasted coffee stout, it's different so that's a plus. A burnt aftertaste

M- Feel is thick bodied with a silky sweet way about itself, this is a big sweet stout IMO with an ashy finish. There is just a touch of bitterness towards the end coming from the fighting hops in this malty ass stout. A slight prick of carbonation and a smoky aftertaste.

D- I think the alcohol could be tamed down a bit as well as the roast slightly. This is a great beer that I hope to find on a nitro tap someday. Hope to come across this one again (1,398 characters)

Thanks to da_bulls for this bottle!

A: dark black, thick, and a one finger head that leaves nice lacing.

S: coffee, chocolate, roasted malt

T: same flavors as the smell, but I'm impressed with the blend of the flavors. Tastes like it was brewed with a lot of chocolate since OI'm able to taste the chocolate even with the strong coffee and malt flavors.

M: creamy, rich, full body, and still has good carbonation

O: right up there with Breakfast Stout for my favorite coffee stout. Would love to compare side by side, bu (527 characters)

1519th Review on BA
Bottle to Snifter
22oz

2012 release
Thanks to ShanePB for this one.

App- A huge thick and creamy crimson brown pour. Similar to chocolate and garnet mixed with a small 1/2" off tan head with a puddle of bubbles on edges. Maybe a couple dots.

Smell- holy hell batman. I wanna bath in the aroma. Very similar to BCBVS without the vanilla and bourbon. Creamy, malty, rich and syrupy thick on the nose. Coffee is very mellow and only touches of bitter.

Taste- What a good stout. Lots going on in the glass. A super creamy stout with a bit of a grainular cracker thing and then the melted chocolate comes in with a thick malt. Again the coffee is hidden but after you sip, the crushed bean flavor comes out. Can anyone else find a small quad note? Cherries on the finish?

Mouth- A very creamy and almost thick body. Not oily or that filling but a substantial body. The carbonation is straddling the line between and a low and medium body. A good residual grainy coffee and chcocolate flavor with a bit of cracker.

Drink- Hot damn that was good! A lot going on and not overly boozy, grainular or sweet? Super well balanced and a great flavorful and fuller stout. Not sure how old this is but hot damn (1,220 characters)

Poured in to HF stemmed tulip.

A - Ink black; appears thick and viscous. Half a finger of medium brown head.

S - Dark roasted coffee, vanilla, roasted malts, caramel and a touch of smoke. A very complex nose.

T - Bold espresso up front that gives way to a sweet vanilla flavour. The middle has dark caramel, biscuit, roast and bakers chocolate. The coffee returns in the finish and lingers in the aftertaste. The many flavours in this beer come together nicely. Fairly sweet overall but the bitter espresso flavour cuts through the sweetness somewhat.

M - Full body. Viscous. Light carbonation. (599 characters)

Drank from a 1 pt 6 fl. oz. bottle purchased at Craft Beer Cellar, Belmont, MA
Served in a snifter

The beer poured a thick and viscous motor oil brown and was topped by a resilient, one-finger tall cap of saddle brown froth. Sheets of lacing coated the glass with every sip. The head slowly faded to clingy, bubbly ring.

Potent espresso notes dominated the nose. Good dose of roasted malts. Loads of vanilla. Touch of dark chocolate. The aroma was quite straightforward and, in this case, I definitely thought it worked well. If it were slightly more intense, however, I would have bumped the score up to a perfect "5."

While the flavor profile was similar in many ways to the nose, it was definitely more abrasive. The melding of heavily roasted coffee beans and roasted malts on the front was a bit too bitter for my palate. Bakers chocolate notes came through in the center. The finish was roasty and dry to the point of being acrid. Some earthy and piney hops made the beer even more bitter. On a positive note, the 11.5% ABV was remarkably well hidden.

The mouthfeel was disappointingly thin for the style. The liquid contained a fine, spritzy effervescence that was quite distracting.

I had high hopes for Evil Twin's Imperial Biscotti Break but was really let down by it. While aging this might lessen the coffee character, it could also smooth out its rough edges. I would be curious to see what some time in a bourbon barrel might do to this. (1,456 characters)

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

A - Pours a slick black liquid with one finger of brown head. head has pretty good retention and leaves some spots of lacing. Maintains a thin cap of foam throughout.

S - Wow! Smells like coffee and a slightly boozy chocolate chip cookie more than biscotti, although I do get some amaretto presence, but I think they pretty much got what they were going for here. Big coffee and chocolate aromas, with a bit of milk chocolate but mostly bittersweet, some cookie dough, a bit of almond, some vanilla and faint fruits.

T - Taste is similar to the aroma, but with more bitterness, which nicely counters the sweet components of the taste. Lots of coffee and bitter chocolate, roasted malts, just a bit of brown sugar. Some vanilla, raisin and cherry. Very tasty, with almost no alcohol presence.

M - Full but not heavy. Initially on the sweet side, but gets more bitter and dry.

O - I was pretty excited when I saw a lone bottle of this on my trip to OH in July, as I figured it was long gone, and it didn't disappoint. A nice twist on the traditional coffee and chocolate-dominated imperial stouts. (1,100 characters)

Many thanks to BA smoked for picking this up for me when he saw it on the shelf during a recent beer shopping trip. Bomber in a mikkeller teku glass. The brew is black with a dark mocha head about a finger strong that holds decent. it fades to a ring around the perimeter with strings of lace sticking to the glass.

The smell is roasty with coffee and a touch of tangy alcohol. Raisins, licorice. earth, cocoa, bready to dark biscuit malt. It has a bit of a tangy fusel kick that increases in strength as it increases in temperature.

The taste is bitter with a strong espresso character. Earth. leather, tobacco and ashy burnt grain to char arw also present in the flavor. There is a citrus element that seems to come from coffee bean quality more than hops. The aftertaste is almost like toasted marshmallows which is interestingly enjoyable.

This is a medium bodies brew with a modest level of carbonation. Overwll a solid brew with nice integration of flavor. It is worth checking out for sure but I prefer the base over this imperial version. This one just boasts a stronger abv presence and isnt as well rounded and enjoyable as the toned-down version. (1,160 characters)

Reviewing the Imperial Biscotti Break from Evil Twin Brewing out of Denmark.
Score: 93

10 oz tap pour served in a chalice glass at the Local Option and enjoyed on 06/20/12.

Appearance: Black coffee color with thin bubbly tan layer of head that settles into a bubbly ring around the glass. Poor lacing, above average cling/lacing. 4/5

Smell: Smooth raisiny bourbon, sweet chocolate, brown sugar. Almond bread, vanilla, and muffins. Dark fruit and roasted malt. 4.5/5

Taste: Malty brown sugar and boozy bourbon upfront. Bakers chocolate towards the finish. Sweet bourbon, almond, vanilla and dry fig/prune throughout. Tastes less sweet than it smells, not that the nose is all that sweet. Less chocolate flavor than the nose led on too. Residual coffee aftertaste. I am surprised by how little coffee flavor this beer has given its namesake. 4.25/5

Mouthfeel: Medium-full bodied, low carbonation. Syrupy mouthfeel. Bitter/bittersweet, mildly acidic. 4.5/5

Overall: An excellent beer with some well deserved hype. Hopefully this won't just be a one-off for Evil Twin because this stuff was delicious.

Recommendation: Seek a bottle of this out if you get the chance, though it has already come-and-gone through the retail circuit.

Pairings: Fried plantains.

Cost: $10 for a 10 oz snifter pour. (1,298 characters)
