1 pint 6 fl oz brown glass bottle with stylish understated label art and pry-off pressure cap (unbranded) acquired at a SoCal bottle shop for $17.00 (ouch!) and served into a flared stem-snifter/tulip hybrid glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, Los Angeles, California. Reviewed live. Expectations are high; I loved imperial biscotti break. 12% ABV confirmed. Imported by Twelve Percent LLC.

A: Pours a gorgeous rich tan-brown colour head, one finger in width. Amazing mocha creaminess; wow. Fantastic thickness. Shiny soft complexion. Even consistent thick lacing coats the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Head retention is pretty respectable given the high ABV; about 1-2 minutes - forgivable.

Body colour is an opaque jet black. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show.

Love the colour and the appearance overall. Wow.

Sm: Rich chocolate, unrefined sugars, molasses, roast, dark malts, chocolate malt, dark fruit (dates in particular), marshmallow, cream, and maybe a hint of fennel.

Not getting any yeast character, hop character, or alcohol off the aroma.

Overall, it's a pleasant aroma - and surprisingly light. Not the most evocative, but the notes are there if you really look deeply.

T: Dark chocolate, chocolate malt, marshmallow, unrefined sugars somewhere between pimoncello and a darker molasses-like sugar, treacle, subtle caramel, molasses, vague dark fruit (definitely dates, but I don't get much in terms of plum or fig), a kiss of fudge, light buried truffle, dark malts, and very buried roast. On the sweeter end but by no means cloying. Pretty well balanced, with interesting complexity and some subtlety to the execution. I quite like it. Certainly a rich flavour profile.

Depth of flavour is above average. Intensity and duration of flavour are average for the style, but high overall.

Not all burnt or charred. No smokiness. The label claims it has a note of coffee, but I'm not getting that at all from the taste - which is a bit odd. Just a bit of alcohol does come through. No yeast or hop character does.

Mf: Silky and creamy. Wet. Unrefreshing. A biteen gooey. Slightly overcarbonated, but it's forgivable. Complements the flavour profile nicely. Not harsh, gushed, or biting. Nicely thick. Sticky. Chewy.

Dr: Drinkable and enjoyable; I'll have little trouble killing this bottle alone - and that says something at 12%. A solid stout from Evil Twin, but I do prefer Imperial Biscotti Break. It's a tasty beer well worth trying for fans of the style, but I find it falls well short of the greats.

By the time I poured the last of it into my glass, there was a turd-like clump of wet yeast left in the bottle. So it seems to be bottle conditioned, and development with age should be anticipated.

Constructively, the sweetness and richness undercut drinkability. And better beers in the style have a lot more going on in terms of complexity and subtlety, whilst attaining a better execution of balance.
