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.

1519th Review on BA
Bottle to Snifter

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

Bottle into a tulip. Intense dark choclate and candied sugar on the nose along with notes of vanilla, honey, and syrup. Medium weight, and a touch more watery than I expected. The taste pretty much follows the smell, unfolding flavors of sweet chocolate, maple syrup, oaky vanilla, and sweet, roasted malt. Not much complexity, but damn tasty. Alcohol is hidden very well.

Pours to a dark rich chocolate.color with a full finger of head. Draft. Hints of chocolate, brown sugar and cream. Traditional imperial stout. very smooth and light in the mouth. After tastes of sugar, maybe cinnamon. Easy to consume. No burn of course. Great stout.

Appearance - Pours a dark chocolate brown with a rich, frothy mocha head. Gorgeous.

Smell - Roasted malts, roasted coffee, dark fruit, almond biscuit, hint of vanilla.

Taste - Roasted flavours of malts and coffee with dark fruit (cherry or plum). Turns a little boozy at the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium-to-full bodied with light-to-moderate carbonation.

Overall - A beautifully crafted Imperial stout with rich roasted flavours and a nice warming, smooth feel.

A: Pours pitch black. Good sized and very dense dark brown head. Very slowly fades away, top notch head retention. Almost solid wall of lacing.

S: Fresh roasted coffee beans. Wonderful. Has a nutty, maybe hazelnut, almost well - biscotti-like aroma (duh?). Sweet vanilla and lots of it. Creamy and rich.

T: Thick and creamy with lots of vanilla up front with that hazelnut. Bitter coffee bean kicks in the middle with some chocolate. Get a little anise in the finish as well. Very sweet from start to finish. Long lasting lingering coffee bean and milk chocolate between sips.

M: Heavy, thick, creamy, slick and syrupy. In a word: big. Like drinking hershey's syrup. Great mouthfeel.

O: A very unique and tasty imperial stout. Great complexity with excellent balance of flavors. Unique nutty taste with lots of vanilla really puts it over the top. I have no complaints, this one was an excellently executed unique beer. Not something you find very often.

On-tap at Village Tap. Served in a snifter.

A - Dark mocha foam settles to a near-complete cap, tiny spots of lace. Body is pitch black.

S - Loads of coffee, chocolate, roasted malts, vanilla, almonds, and fruity dark cherry notes.

T - The taste is significantly less fruity and more roasty, with dark breads and espresso flavors. Still, this is quite sweet, with tons of vanilla and chocolate flavor.

M - Smooth texture, active carbonation, medium-full body, melted chocolate and dry roasty texture. Mildly sticky finish, and well-hidden alcohol.

D - A definite sipper, and probably too rich to have more than one in an evening, perhaps two. Just as good as Biscotti Break and delivers exactly as promised - it's a bigger version of the original.

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.

A: This poured a totally opaque black with thick dark tan head. Beautiful.
S: It smelled like fresh roasted coffee and rich dark chocolate, with some vanilla bean and molasses.
T: It tasted like rich dark chocolate and dry roasted coffee, with some toasted bread and vanilla bean. It had a clean mostly sweet aftertaste.
M: It was thick and chewy with moderate carbonation. Excellent huge body.
D: This was a great stout, with delicious scent and taste, and fantastic body. The finish was really smooth with incredibly well hidden alcohol. So it was too easy to drink, given the ABV. No need to age, this brew is good to go fresh. For a non-barrel aged stout, this is top tier. Recommended.

22oz BOMB

When I bought this it was a whale, but then the variants came out so who even cares about this anymore? As I first stuck my nose towards the avery snifter that held this diabetes bomb, huge whiffs of brownie batter and fudge punched me in the face. It's pretty decadent and certainly one of the better Evil Twin beers I've had - gooey chocolate fudge, a little dose of smoke, medium rare brownie, sugar. I killed the last 6oz with a hearty scoop of snoqualmie french vanilla.

Served at fifty degrees in a clean snifter glass. Slight vigor in my pour produced a one centimeter mocha colored head that slowly subsides to reveal the dark abysmal awaiting beneath.

Black malt, coffee, Kentucky burley, bittersweet chocolate and dark fruit make up the complex nose.

Chocolate malt and fruit sweetness, currant perhaps, lead to bitter stale coffee. Burnt, dry roasted aftertaste, light booze.

Low degree of carbonation, slightly viscous, easy to drink. Again, aftertaste is quite dry.

Overall this is a solid beer. I enjoy most offerings from Evil Twin despite the sometimes exuberant pricing. Even More Jesus, another imperial offering from Evil Twin, is quite nice, and there is a coffee version available. Given the success of Biscotti Break, I might seek it out. Regardless, give this a shot, give it two shots, it's good. You'll like it, you might even love it. Recommended food pairings: red velvet cake, dark chocolate, or anything that goes well with coffee really. Me? I'll be enjoying the other half of this bomber after dinner, alongside some premium dark hand rolling tobacco. Cheers.

22 oz bottle
Served into a tulip

A: Dark black body with a fluffy, rich dark brown head. Very impressive lacing down the sides of the glass, as well as a thick cap of foam left behind. This is what I like my big Imperial Stouts to look like, really nicely done.

S: Huge coffee beans, lots of toasted barley, vanilla, pumpernickel bread, almonds and hints of chocolate. This is just a massive smelling beer and the coffee certainly seems to be the centerpiece of the aroma.

T: As with the nose, massive coffee, roasted malt and bitter chocolate flavors coat the palate. Vanilla, bread and nuts come through towards the back end. There is definitely some noticeable alcohol heat but it's not too detracting from the actual flavor profile.

M: Wow, this is just straight up thick. Full-bodied, chewy and completely coating all over the mouth. Absolutely stellar feel here, this is what all Imperial Stouts should be like.

I went into this only reading the label which set my expectations up somewhat for what I was getting into. Having had only one other beer from Evil Twin (to my recollection), this was wonderful. Big coffee notes played extremely well with the aggressive roasted malt backbone this beer had. Tone down the alcohol notes a bit, but still this is one to try.

Another brew I picked up while in Singapore (not that it isn't available elsewhere, but it certainly isn't available where I've been living). I guess EvilTwin is a relatively new addition to "the scene" that I've been out of for a few years, so when this one was recommended to me by the store clerk, I did one of those "heh, ok, yeah, I'll check that out" sort of things. But I did check it out (on BA first, of course), saw the rave reviews, and figured it was worth a try. Poured in to an inappropriate piece of glassware.

Appearance: Perhaps this beer's weakest aspect. A moderate pour yielded an opaque (save for at the edges, where bits of smoky garnet light creep through when held to direct light) chocolate-hued brew with an initial burst of frothy head about one finger high, burnt fawn in color. The head retention was fairly disappointing though, and it faded in to a thin collar of large bubbles within 30 seconds. The lacing is similarly minimal, with only faint traces and wisps of foam clinging in desperation to the sides of the glass, runny and oily. I admit that the glassware I have here might not be quite up to the task (I know, I know, never review a beer with bad glassware), but it shouldn't make this big of a difference. Probably a combination of some oily additive (I don't look up the additives until after I've reviews a beer), maybe chocolate, minimal hopping, and high alcohol content. It's not unappealing, but it lacks that certain "je ne sais quoi" the label asserts that its inspiration had.

Aroma: A marked improvement. Chocolate is at the front, strong and authentic. It reminds me a great deal of Choklat on the nose, as a matter of fact; sweet, with an oily and estery presence reminiscent of white chocolate or vanilla. The more I think about it, the white chocolate comparison is particularly apt on the nose, suggesting the presence again of lactose oils (or more likely cocoa or coffee oils). Probably coffee is a better description of the note, as it does have a few lighter, grassy notes that shine through. The warm nuttiness that one associates with good biscotti is also present, particularly as it warms and the heavier, aromatic nut oils begin to vaporize, though it's initially fairly well buried under the avalanche of warm vanilla sugar and roasted goodness. Actual nuts being used to brew this one would explain both the nose and the poor head retention.

Taste: Jackpot. The sweetness in the nose is still present and pleasant, but it's not nearly as potent as I was fearing. Fat roastiness is still the predominant flavor note, but it's balanced with a healthy amount of bitterness and roasted, non-saccharine malt character that makes for a really well-rounded and drinkable flavor profile. The nutty notes are even more prominent here, dancing over a sea of caramel cream, toffee, hints of bitter char, warm vanilla sugar, and warm, robust espresso. Nothing too flashy or over the top here, and balance is the word that really epitomizes this brew - intense, bold, but balanced.

Mouthfeel: A little more lift than I like out of a beer this sweet. On the scale of "flat, oily, milkshake-like" to "buoyant, bright, effervescent," I know a lot of folks like their sweeter, malt-heavy beers to showcase characteristics trending towards the latter, if only so the beer isn't fat and cloying.

Drinkability: As someone who's brewed nut beers before, I know it's hard to do (pulverize, slurry, separate, rinse, repeat six times). I know it messes with your head retention, and makes your mouthfeel slippery and eel-like. But--given how those additions make a beer taste--a brew that had those flavor/aroma components and had great retention and a perfect mouthfeel would be a contender for most badass brew of all time. Particularly impressive at 11.5% with no hint of alcohol in the mouth or nose until this one comes dangerously close to room temperature.

Appearance: Ok foam and lacing for a stout. Color is ink black...superb.

Smell: Hits all the right notes for a stout: dark fruit, coffee, toffee, and chocolate. Extremely boozy.

Taste/Mouthfeel: See smell. Quite bitter also. Very clean for the level of alcohol in this. Maybe a bit too smooth.

Overall: This stuff can get you drunk quick.

Expensive bottle, $18.

Appearance. Pours thick and black with a finger of thick espresso foam head.

Smell. Big chocolate, vanilla and cake with some roasty coffee, molasses and chocolate liquer.

Taste. Huge espresso with dark chocolate and some honey, vanilla, roasted nuts and a drop of molasses. Sweet but delicious.

Mouthfeel. Thick and a bit syrupy, low carbonation. Some warmth, but nothing off-putting.

Overall. A very tasty stout and makes a great desert.

Sered on tap at the Local Option. Pours a thick oily opaque brownish black. Small amount of tan head hangs around with nice bit of lacing. The aroma is rich and chocolatey, bold coffee aroma comes through which is integrated with the chocolate. Nutty notes of almond come through with a touch of vanilla. malt and molasses present as well. Taste features waves of vanilla paired with bold roast coffee and chocolate. Awesome balance I flavors. Somewhat sweet, but does not become overbearing. Mouthfeel is thick and luscious with mild carbonation. Overall, this is a delicious dessert beer with great balance considering its stature.

Poured Imperial Biscotti Break into a snifter.

A - Black with a tinge of ruby highlights around the edges. A half of finger of dark mocha head.

S - On first sniff, getting sweet carmel, vanilla and some hot alcohol. Some dark roasted coffee comes in on further investigation.

T - Bitter dark chocolates smooth coffee on first sip. Vanilla, toffee, dark roasted malts mid palate. On the aftertaste getting more sweetness from the vanilla and dark chocolates.

M - The mouthfeel is smooth and rich, heavy and sticky. Low carbonation. Very nice for a Imperial Stout.

O - Gonna try to find more of these! Highly Recommended! Cheers!

This one is a little bit disappointing to me. I rarely have eaten actual biscotti so maybe that's why I am not in love with this stout. It pours midnight with a lovely rich tan head. The head disappears incredibly quickly and there's almost no lacing whatsoever. The smell is very mild, some chocolate and slight cinnamon aroma along with roasted malt and a sweet maple syrup aroma. The taste is pretty solid! Roasted malt and wood flavors with sweet lactose and, well, straight up biscotti. The feel of this beer is very nice also. It isn't very thick yet makes up for it with a smooth sweet finish and is a quintessential dessert beer. Not worth the $18 I spent on it but still glad I was able to try it!

Best before 2015
A- This beer pours a jet black velvety body with a thick dark tan cocoa crema of head that last for much of the beer as a thick ring.

S- The rich espresso black malt is mellow with dark toffee, molasses blended with cookie notes. There is a nice chocolate nougat note that comes into the fold as it opens.

T- The rich cream and slightly inky mellow but rich black malt flavors has some toasted biscotti notes and a roasted molasses finish with some dark graham flavors lingering with a non-bitter inky malt and tootsie roll hint. There is some nice baked vanilla notes as the beer opens.

M- The medium mouthfeel has a gentle alcohol warmth and a thick tongue coating finish to balance.

O- The rich smooth big stout is mellow with nice biscotti characteristics and the layers of flavor grow as it opens up. This is a very taste beer, and a wonderful sipper.

Poured from the bottle into a large snifter glass.

Comes out quite sludgey and thick, black walnut brown almost black in color, but some brown around the edges for the body. Barely makes any head, and leaves hardly a pencil thin light mocha collar. There's some leg action a bit, but the beer does appear quite a bit lifeless off the pour.

Bouquet is quite varied and impressive. Nice light roasty coffee, with a light anisette and black licorice component to it. Whispy whipped up crispy milk chocolate angle. A real nice balance, and a big thickness as well.

Palate hits with a very large thick and silky body, but a very noticeable sweetness that comes out like a dark roasty caramel. Fruit opens up in the mid palate, some type of red berry fruit indistinguishable. Finishes with a nice charring roasty character. Mouthfeel is rich and large complimenting a berried chocolate sense. Coffee sensations hide a bit. Finish hits with a nice charring malt and dry roast, but a good playful sweetness going on. Palate comes out sensing flat carbonation, but with a large fudge like density.

Overall it's a fun creation, but it does get into dessert beer territory, and really feels like it needs a food pairing. It's a bit large, but a tasty one to be had and enjoy.

Wow, what a beautiful IS.
I got this from a local shop who got it through some connections.

Pour: With a somewhat strong pour it yields a dark mahagony body with a chocolatey oatmeal colored frothy head that dissipates leaving a scattering of light foam.

Nose: Very subtle on the outset, coffee roast with slight chocolate malt. But as it warms and settles in the glass these evolve and come on more strongly with a hint of molasses. Really great nose.

Taste: WOW Roast and chocolate as expected, slight coffee bitterness melds well. The balance between the sweet and the bitter is perfect, with the sweet being in the driver's seat. I barely catch a hint of of port. As it warms an ever so slight alcohol warmth adds a pleasing dimension to the flavor.

Mouthfeel: At first I thought the mouthfeel was slightly on the thinner side for this style, but as I had more, I found it just fine. Then again, after getting through this bottle, I found most things fine.

Overall: A beautifully balanced Imperial Stout. More sweet than roasty, but a genuine pleasure to behold. Every aspect of the flavor profile worked well together. I will absolutely seek this out again.

Best before 2015.

Bomber served chilled into a goblet.

Imperial Biscotti Break is nearly black and very nearly opaque even on the pour. The head is crema colored and about the same thickness as it is on an espresso.

Aroma is malty and rich, roasty but sweet.

Flavor is sweet up front with dark chocolate and caramel. It's a little more roasty in the middle with dark malts and espresso. It finishes with a little more dry with the alcohol coming through slightly.

Mouthfeel is full bodied and perfectly carbonated with great balance and drinkability for such a strong beer.

Overall an excellent strong stout.

22oz bottle to my FW Snifter glass – 12/07/13

Big thanks to Doppelbockulus for this one! A big want of mine.

A: Blackened brown body that is completely opaque. Looks pretty dark in the glass with an oily sheen on the surface and a few streaming bubbles present. Takes some vigor to conjure up the bubbly head of dark mocha whip. Quickly fades out to a swirl leaving light ribbons of stick strewn down the glass.

S: Barista grade coffee with blackened grains, dark chocolate, molasses, dark caramels, and brown sugar. Smells deliciously sweet with some alcohol presence on the nose. Getting a bit of vanilla spice mixed in as well. Need to let this one warm up as the nose really blossoms.

T: Fudgy brownie and vanilla pudding with brown sugar molasses. Coffee is there but significantly less intense than the nose. Oh this is delicious! Dark caramelized malts with subtle hints of anise spice mixed in. There is a moderate to high level of bitterness that just cuts through all the sweetness and really saves this from being an insulin bomb. The alcohol is warming and present but pretty tame considering the size of this brew. Has hint of smoke and an earthy mineral finish to it. Decadence in a bottle and a solid step up from the nose. My kind of dessert beer. Sweet and flavorful yet balanced by the bitterness.

M: Full bodied with a creamy texture and relatively high amount of bitterness that cuts through the density. Slight warming sensation with a slick oily coating on the finish.

D: Meets expectations. Deliciously balanced with layers of complexity. Will seek out again.

22 oz bomber into a tulip glass. Huge thanks to Atomicskis5 for the bottle! Latest 2013 batch, best before 2015.

A - Pours a deep black body with two fingers worth of dense and creamy mocha foam. Crazy levels of lacing and retention here. Swirling the beer gets addictive it looks so damn good.

S - Move over Southern Tier, there's another brewery nailing the aromas of desserts! Roasted coffee beans, delicate french vanilla, and some almond nuttiness. Really digging the end of the nose as everything comes together so well. Smells like a god damn biscotti plus a cup of coffee.

T - Lightly bitter roasted coffee beans. Smooth and rich french vanilla. Cocoa and toasted almonds on the finish. Less direct than the nose but very tasty and satisfying. Rich and decadent but not too overbearing.

M - Rich and creamy. I was expecting something heavier and sweeter, not so. Alcohol sneaks in slightly on the aftertaste.

O - Been waiting to try this beer for a long time, and although I was expecting something much different it did live up to the hype for me. This is a damn solid dessert beer. Just nails the biscotti + coffee motif.

Thanks to AndrewK for sharing this one at his tasting.

Pours an opaque black with a foamy dark khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, roasted coffee beans, and some cocoa aromas. Taste is much the same with a medium level of roasty bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp and medium bodied mouthfeel. There is also a slightly sticky quality in the mouth. Overall, this is a very good beer with some awesome aromas and flavors and is extremely tasty.

Draught @ Cambridge House: This one pours an opaque, very dark brow color. It has about a finger of a light brown head on it. Suprisingly almost no lacing. The nose is good. Some coffee notes on top. Roasted malts, smokiness and chocolate round out the aroma. The taste is excellent. Coffee, some smokiness, toffee, rich chocolate, hints of dark fruits. Somewhat dry and no real sweetness to it. Extremely nice.
