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.

Appearance- Jet black, but there appears to be some dark brown sediment in this beer. An extravagant, frothy head sits atop the brew. It looks almost as if someone tried to float a chocolate milkshake on top of a glass of motor oil.

Smell- Espresso, almonds, vanilla, freshly baked chocolate chip cookies

Taste- Espresso > hazelnuts > dark chocolate > repeat. Delicious taste shifts linger for minutes after taking a sip thanks to some extremely chewy malts. This beer washes over you with such massive waves of flavor that you could drown in it. A hint of tobacco spiciness up front and lingering cacao/espresso bitterness in the finish. I was expecting this to be overly sweet but it's not. This beer is just right.

Mouthfeel- Medium heavy carbonation, this beer is luxuriously creamy.

Overall- A very delicious RIS. Much better than the Imperial Doughnut Break, in my opinion. Quite hard to justify at the price point ($18 per bomber) but still delicious and a welcome occasional change of pace from the always amazing Old Rasputin.

Poured from a 22oz bomber.

A- Pitch black with a one finger tan head. Pours thick and leaves slight sticky lacing.

S- Coffee, chocolate, and almond. Some slight booziness in the smell but well hidden.

T- Milk chocolate, vanilla/almond, and sugary coffee. Just heavenly.

M- Silky smooth full mouth feel. Low carbonation. ABV well masked.

O- I love sweet stouts and this is one of the best, imo. Try it!
