BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Evil Twin Brewing
New York, United States | website

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.

3.73/5  rDev -14.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

A- Thick and viscous. Deep bark color with a dark caramel head that doesn't hang around too long before settling into a soft ring. Impressive looking to say the least.

S- Coffee leads the way. Roasted malts and nuts, sweet cookies, and a hint of chocolate.

T- Abundance of sweet notes that weren't apparent with the nose. Borders on cloying, but slides back just before going over the edge. The biscotti cookie really comes through and complements the coffee character well. Warms up nicely with mocha, whipped cream, and slight charred caramel flavors.

M- Full bodied no doubt. Creamy, smooth, and alcohol with a kick.

O- a terrific breakfast or desert beer. Would be fantastically paired with a biscotti cookie or cream donut. Not sure that I would have again on its own, but would be sought out on the right pairing occasion.

$15.99 for 22 oz bomber.

Appearance: deep ebony. Decadent mocha head. She's a beaut.
Smell: Like a smooth chocolate malt mocha milkshake with just a bit of that charred smell that can add just the right touch or dominate the flavor. This was has the touch. Very nice.
Taste: oh yes. All the flavors of the nose with some vanilla thrown in, and all balanced quite well.
overall: very well done. This one goes down like a session milk chocolate. Bravo.

22oz bottle into a snifter

A: Pours pitch black with a half finger of extremely dense, unmoving head. Looks quite viscous.

S: Roasted malts dominate the aroma with toffee and light nuttiness in the background. As the beer warms, I get more caramel and nutty aromas.

T: Intensely burnt malts are balanced by caramel and milk chocolate sweetness. The burnt flavor of the malts is a bit much in my opinion and lingers in your mouth for the entire beer, but allowing the beer to sit certainly lets more toffee and nuttiness come through keeping the burnt malts in check. A good amount of dark chocolate is also present. Kind of reminds me of peanut brittle. ABV is certainly apparent, but the beer is not overly boozy.

M: Very thick mouthfeel and a tad strong on the carbonation, but still very creamy.

O: The burnt malt flavor is a bit much on this beer, but the sweetness in the way of toffee and caramel and the nuttiness that comes through is extremely nice.

bomber into 2012 SAVOR tulip. not sure of the bottling date, however there is a 'best by 2015' on the label.

A: pours a shade under pitch black. head is a solid brown hue. frothy. retention isn't great, nor the lacing. but I do like that initial pour hue...

S: roast and a bunch of unfermentables are the first things to jump out at me. cigar ash. a decent amount of smokiness on the nose. dark chocolate.

T: a vanilla sweetness warms the body and welcomes the first sip. the bitterness is strong, but manageable. definitely from the coffee as its flavor comes out after the bitterness and lingers long after the drink is gone. virtually no alcohol heat.

M: mellow carb on a BIG body. let the palate do the talking, that's what I like.

D: unsure of the difference between bottled-on and best-by here, I have to assume this is relatively fresh. regardless, just a super drinkable, super rich stout. I could sip on this thing all night.

Poured from a 22 oz bottle into a 8 oz snifter.

A- pours a thick, jet black with just a crust of brown head. Minimal to no lacing.

S- amazing coffee, dark chocolate and maple syrup.

T- sweet maple syrup, slight molasses, coffee, dark chocolate, with some bitterness at the finish.

M- full body and medium carbonation. Thick, syrupy with some heat from the abv as it warms.

O- very good coffee RIS. Amazing coffee and chocolate flavors and the heat is hidden pretty well at 11.5%.

Pours black with a thin tan head and some nice lacing. Smell is very nice - a great mix of coffee and chocolate. Taste is quite nice - it's very roasty, but there is a great mix of flavors going on here. It's a little sweet, and the coffee and chocolate come through very nicely here. It's quite drinkable for as big and bold of a stout as this is. Mouthfeel is thick and a bit oily, but quite nice. Overall, this is pretty impressive - best beer I've had from Evil Twin and the first one I'd go out of my way to seek out.

A-Very dark brown, almost black, with a thin layer of dark tan head that leaves a ring around the glass

S-Rich roasted malt, molasses, a bit of dark coffee, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, and a light nutty almond smell

T-very similar to the smell, roasted malt, molasses, more coffee in the taste, vanilla, and a nice nuttiness. A nice warming alcohol sensation is present.

M-very creamy, full body, very good carbonation, leaves a dry roasted taste in the mouth

Excellent, amazing flavors, great body and smell. Can't wait to have it again.

4.49/5  rDev +3.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Black. Creamy brown head. No lacing that I can see.

Smell: Rich and delicious. Biscotti, I suppose. Coffee and chocolate laden. So much it's ridiculous. I don't get the alcohol one bit.

Taste/feel: To be honest, reminds me quite a lot of their Imperial Doughnut Break, as it has that same sort of doughiness (though not quite to the same extent), but with more and better flavor. Great creamy feel with a mild/moderate mouthfeel. Quite sweet, but also a deep roasted flavor with some bitterness on the finish. A lot of alcohol warmth here that dries the mouth right up. The alcohol can't be tasted at all, but certainly felt.

Incredibly good beer. $18 for a 22oz bottle is definitely a pretty hefty price, but it's also one hell of a hefty brew. A fantastic biscotti/dough/coffee/sweet nose that tastes almost just as good. A big beer that's well worth trying. One of the best beers I've ever had, for sure. A bit on the sweeter side, but that's to be expected from this beer, I think... but that's just a nitpick. BUY THIS BEER.

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.

EVIL TWIN IMPERIAL BISCOTTI BREAK 6/6/16

This perennially top-rated brew has finally become affordably seated in fourpacks of 16 oz. cans.

Poured from the 16 oz. can into a Samuel Smith English tulip pint.

a: Opaque black with an inch and a half thick tan head which receded slowly to fairly even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Chocolate

t; Black coffee, chocolate and mild ripe dark fruit over a solid slightly smoky malt base. Sweet to dry finish.

m; Full, great body and considerable carbonation tingle.

o: A flavorful, substantial stout with an exceptionally sweet fruitiness to it. A new personal favorite. Dangerously easy drinking for 11.5 ABV!

500ml bottle served in a snifter glass.

A: Pours a deep black color. Creamy and oily. Forms a small and very creamy and thin bubbled beige to brown head. Small retention and some spotty lacings formed and left in the glass. Some brown chunks can be see floating on the bottom of the glass, mainly in the last pours

S: Traditional Imperial Stout in the nose: Strong notes of roasted malts, chocolate malts, coffee beans, licorice, brown bread, brown sugar, vanilla and oak. Some notes of alcohol in the very end. Sweet and balanced

T: Follows the notes: Sweet upfront. Strong notes of roasted malts, chocolate malts, dark chocolate, coffee, brown sugar, brown bread. Yeasts are quite bready. Hops are grassy. Good bitterness in the end (roasted and hoppy). In overall, a smooth and balanced bittersweet taste

M: Heavy, creamy and molasses body. Sweet and bready upfront. Bitter roasted aftertaste

O: Great drinkability. Excellent Imperial Stout. Smooth and pleasant. Masterpiece

22oz bottle poured into a snifter
No born on date or other distinguishing numbers 

A: Pours a viscous opaque jet black, with an aggressive pour yielding just under a fingers width of very dark mocha colored head.   Retention time is moderate, then it settles down to an outer ring accompanied by the thinnest of films.  Leaves very slight patches of spotty lacing.

S: Aroma is strong and rich from the moment the bottle is popped.  I get dark fruits at first, then tons of bold roast black coffee, a decent amount of dark chocolate, almond, and a hint of anise.  The smell is sweet, chocolatey, nutty, and absolutely delicious.  This may be the best smelling stout I've had to date, and it's not even barrel aged!

T: Again, oh so rich.  This is really, really good and very complex.  The initial sip is sweet up front, followed by milk chocolate and finishing with a big coffee character.  Along with the huge coffee presence and chocolate, I also get notes of vanilla, subtle nutty characteristics, roasted malt, an occasional bitterness, and a hint of booze at one point.  All these flavors come together to give a decadent palate profile that leaves an aftertaste that lingers forever. It's well balanced, complex, and incredibly rich but not at all cloying.  Very well done.  

M/D: Very smooth, with an appropriately low carbonation. Thick, somewhat chewy, and coats the palate nicely. Drinkability is absurd for an almost 12%'er with a huge flavor profile.  The first glass for the snifter went down almost instantaneously and the second glass followed in no time at all.  

O:  If I could summarize the overall review of this beer in one word it would be, "wow".  I had heard some good things about this brew prior to trying it, but it managed to exceed expectations.  Up there with some of the best stouts I've had, and certainly on the short list of best non barrel aged stouts.  I certainly recommend and am so glad I was able to grab the last couple off the shelves of my local bottle shop.  

Also, i would like to add that although It's already wonderful tasting, the scary thing is I think with time it could get even better (I love the coffee presence but I think even more intricacies could come out if the coffee were mellowed down).

Served in a snifter glass.

Appearance: Super dark black with it's brown accent. Thin brown head that rose to maybe a third of a finger's length.

Smell: Deep aroma of coffee and chocolate cream. I want to inhale this.

Taste: Strong potent and complex taste. It's lightly bitter with a touch of sugar and molasses with just the right notch espesso feel.

Mouth: Really sticky. Almost a syrup finish but not as sweet as you would think.

Overall: Yes it is good, in reality it is incredible. Little pricy like most Evil Twin stuff but lives up to the hype. Grab your favorite glass and movie and you are set. Salud!

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.

An amazing beer!

Dark, black oil change with a thick two finger brown head, great retention, sea foam lace and some alcohol legs. Rich and thick.

The aroma is sweet! Brown sugar, toffee, espresso, cream, vanilla, dark fruit, milk chocolate, cocoa, and almond. Fruity esters with earth tones and biscuit notes. Toasted hints and faint charcoal roast.

Much more balanced than the smell. Cocoa, rich espresso, vanilla, and nutty almond notes. Follows the nose, but not as cloying as the nose would lead one to think. Very balanced. Dessert, brownies. Awesome!

The mouthfeel is rich, thick, and creamy.

An absolutely awesome stout! I wanted more and was sad to see the bottle end. It was addicting.

The beer pours a beautiful look, with a serious brown fizzy head than dies to a ring quickly and a black hue. Lacing is decent.

The smell lives up to the name: nice coffee roast, sugary maple, some bacon, ginger sweet breakfast scone, and more. Quite excellent.

The taste lives up to it for the most part, but has sort of metallic overtone to it that detracts just slightly. Lots of roasted espresso with slight brown sugar sweetness, vanilla, waffles. Awesome and unique has a slight smoke overall like the smell of a dinner at work.

The feel is nice and full bodied, roasty and toasted.

Overall an excellent beer, I really love it.

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.

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.

Enjoyed out of a 22 oz brown bomber with no dating that I can find anywhere on the bottle. Poured into a small (8 oz) Teku glass.

Appearance (4.5) - A promising start, with an inky, oily black liquid with a nice amount of viscosity as it cascades into the glass. A moderate pour reveals a solid finger and a half of creamy raw umber colored head mostly microbubbles with just a few slightly larger bubbles breaking up the uniformity of the foam. Retention is excellent, remaining for several minutes before slowly slinking away to leave an uneven swath of film across the top of the liquid. Bits of sticky lace line the sides of the glass.

Smell (4.0) - Honestly, I'm a little disappointed at how subdued the coffee characteristic seems here. It's entirely possible that I've got an old bottle, but without a date to confirm one way or another, I have to score as if the bottle is reasonably fresh and should have a measure of coffee pungency. I do get a fair amount of roasted malt, but like the coffee component, it lacks any of that punch that suggests a nice amount of bitterness will be coming with the taste. It's polite, but the beer suffers for it. There are some hints of sweeter elements as well, cocoa, and maybe some almond nuttiness.

Taste (4.0) - Perhaps unsurprisingly, the taste is similarly lackluster to the aroma. All of the elements are here--coffee, roasted malt, bittersweet chocolate, but lacking in any sense of bittering to contrast the sweeter notes. There is again a pleasant almond sweetness to salvage an otherwise rather boring beer, but it still just lacking in my opinion. I've had imperial coffee stouts that were so much more interesting.

Mouthfeel (4.25) - Full-bodied and moderate carbonation with a nice thick viscosity that gives it plenty of staying power and a lingering coating on the mouth after the liquid is gone.

Overall (4.0), this is a beer that I came into with pretty high expectations, but in spite of it being a very good beer, it just didn't meet those expectations. Perhaps that's not fair to the beer, but there are just so many other coffee-infused imperial stouts that I'd buy before this one--especially at the price point.

Cola black, fluffy carbonation, and lacing too. Coffee, vanilla, and almond in the aroma. Vanilla almond chocolate coffee flavored brew that is a big sipper. Soft, smooth, and a velvet feel on the tongue. Big, bold stout that indulges the senses!

22 oz. bottle served in a . Thanks to bentenison for the brew.

A: Pours a dark black color with a dark tan head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin film with a slightly thicker collar. Sheets of lace.

S: There's a whole ton going on. Espresso sweetness, almost like a warm chocolate milk. Heavy doughy cookie, roasted malts and big baker's chocolate. Very faint green paper as it warms, but overall it doesn't detract too much from the smell. Very nice.

T: Warming alcohol on the backend, but it's not over or noticeable which is nice. Chocolate covered espresso beans with a roasted malt and soft cookie sweetness. The finish has some bitter roast and some

M: Silky and oily. Medium to heavy bodied with a medium low carbonation. Really nice.

O: Great mouthfeel with a wonderful blend of flavors. Very nice overall and would definitely have again.

S: WOW! huge chocolate, roasty malt, coffee, there is some sour fruit

T: Dark Chocolate, roasty malt, nuts, coffee, dark fruit and some sourness, hop bitterness towards the end, brown sugar. It's excellent. It'll probably also age well, I am guessing.

M: Thick, syrupty, but also well carbonated. Some alcohol burn.

O: This beer is awesome. Totally worth the price tag (I paid freaking $17 for this bottle in Seattle). My top 10 non-barrel aged imperial stout for sure.

This beer kicks a lot of ass.

A: About as dark opaque brown as it gets. Head is medium chocolatey brown in color, not very large but nicely swirly on the surface. Lace is thinly sticky and I suspect it will change a lot as I drink this.

S: Chocolate brownies, sticky dark chocolate, heavy cream, lactose, soft coffee. A delicious smelling desserty treat.

T: Fields of chocolate and sweet coffee rivers. Very engaging beer experience.

M: Super coating and velvety. My mouth is sticking together as I drink this beer.

D: I'm enjoying this at what feels like a speedy pace however the nature of this beer preventing me from doing that. Very yummy. It's like a extra pleasant dessert.

Awesome bomber from dope (thanks man!) split with my brother, with my portion poured into a Deschutes tulip.

A: Dense, opaque black with thin brown head and decent lacing & alcohol legs.

S: Sweet alcohol; vanilla and almond really dominate, with some coffee and caramel mixed in for good measure. Decent roasted malt presence with plenty of sugary sweetness.

T: Sweeter here, as well; vanilla and caramel upfront. Less alcohol is tasted here than smelled. Decent amount of chocolate and coffee as well.

MF: Medium-to-full body, viscous and creamy. Carbonation was pretty low on this thing but didn't distract at all (though I would have preferred a little more to cut through the sweetness).

O: Really good, and way too easy to drink for how big it is (and even how much felt alcohol there is). Would have preferred a touch more coffee as well, to balance the sweetness, but my complaints are minor.
