BEER INFO

Evil Twin Brewing
New York, United States

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 11.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
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.

Poured into my Lost Abbey tulip glass. Pours motor oil black, with a one inch mocha head, that leaves behind beautiful lace, and settles very slowly into a layer of foam, amazing. Smell is roasted expresso, vanilla, caramel, toffee, and twix candy bar. Taste even better than the nose. Its a combination of every thing in the nose, but nothing dominated, an amazing dessert beer. Body is chewy as hell, perfect carbonation, not overly dry, and hard to sip, no alcohol present in the taste and at 11 5% incredible. This is sublime! Wouldn't change anything. The best body ever for the style.

On tap, in a tulip glass at the Blind Tiger Ale House, NYC.
This beer pours piano black, totally opaque. The cream is dark beige, moderately thick and very persistent. The appearance is absolutely beautiful and makes you want to drink it right away.
Wonderfully aromatic, with notes of biscuit, roasted malts, coffee beans and dark chocolate mostly. A feast for the nose.
The mouthfeel is dense, thick, almost oily. Velvety feel, with little to moderate carbonation.
Very pleasant and complex taste. I found sweet caramelized notes, biscuit, chocolate, roasted coffee beans and a plesant acidity that balances the sweetness very well. Although very alcoholic, the feel is not harsh at all and makes you want a second glass. Incredible drink for a cold night. Not overly bitter, with a long lingering aftertaste and warmth.
This is the best porter I have ever had the chance to drink. I cannot think of anything that I would change in it. Simply perfect. A very sophisticated brew for true beer enthusiasts. What an experience!
