BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Evil Twin Brewing
New York, United States
eviltwin.dk

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.

Too artificial tasting....like an unnatural weird mall coffee drink. Full bodied, oily, with an unpleasant aftertaste...again, artificial tasting. Just didn't get this.

I had high hopes for this and it exceeded them in the end. Beautiful dark chocolate brown color with coppery head. Sweet, but not overpowering, and smooth, you'd never guess the high abv from taste. Excellent offering from evil twin that I hope to have more of.

A - Pours midnight black with a one-finger tan head. Nice soapy lacing.

S - Aroma of dark chocolate, vanilla, roasted malts, and coffee.

T - The taste follows the aroma perfectly. Dark chocolate, sweet dark fruits, vanilla, and dark roasted malts throughout. The finish has a strong coffee flavor that produces a nice lingering bitterness.

M- Full bodied with low carbonation. Very smooth and creamy mouthfeel. The finish has a lingering alcohol warmth.

O - A fantastic imperial stout. The flavors are very bold and strong. Outstanding.
