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

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Apparently this is the base for Imperial Biscotti Break. They must really tinker with the base to get the deliciousness of IBB, because Lil' B is just not that good, at least for my tastes.

Pours a dark black, with a half inch mocha-colored head, and a little bit of lacing.

Smells ashy and smokey, with some chocolate and roasted malt.

The ashiness of this beer is just hard to get by. I didn't really expect it, and I don't like it. There's some chocolate, coffee, and roasted malt poking through, but the ash and smoke overwhelms. Just not really a pleasant beer, unfortunately.

Medium bodied, creamy smooth mouthfeel, a bit of a slow sipper due to the off-flavors.

Not my thing at all, one of the few dark beers Evil Twin has let me down on.

Serving type: on-tap
