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.

With a voluminous, dark tan head and a sleek black body, this one looks as good as they get.

Has a soothing, rich milk chocolate, plum, ripened dark grape, brown bread and spice aroma.

Tastes of chocolate cake and subtle dark fruits. A little cherry syrup stickiness lingers on the lips. Exceptionally smooth until the very end when an earthy bitterness is noticed.

Heavy in body but thins as it warms. A slight alcohol heat exists.

Biscotti Break is everything an Imperial Stout should be.

Most excellent. This fine imperial stout pours from the 22 oz bottle thick, rich and decadently black with a dark tan had that dissipates to a thin ring and thin layer of foam with light lacing. Nose of rich roasted almonds, rich roasted coffee, toffee, crème brulee, and strong booze. Flavors of sweet almonds coat the taste to all sides with rich espresso flavors. Toffee, brown sugar, and strong alcohol power through the back with a lingering coating wet finish. Slick oily mouth feel with a super sweet aftertaste that lingers rounds this beast out. Astounding sipper.

Cheers

This is delicious, but too sweet to drink a lot of. Great beer to share.

There was a putrid aftertaste that ruined what would have been an exceptional beer.
