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.

L: pours bark brown but looks black in the glass. It's didn't pour thick, but did have a big brown head
S: overly sweet chocolate.
T: sweet, but it quite as much as the aroma. Little coffee though. I was expecting more coffee.
F: thin mouthfeel, very carbonated too.
O: this a decent, but not great.

Poured from a can into a snifter at near room temp - love the can format. I shied away from the bombers of this stuff. A beautiful opaque dark brown color with a thick foamy tan head. It receded quickly but left some nice tracks. Aromas of biscotti and macaroons up front, with cocoa, cinnamon, and vanilla. The taste was mainly milk chocolate with nice subtle notes of sweet biscuit, cinnamon, vanilla, coffee, cherry, and raspberries. Full bodied with a creamy feel. Nice warming at the end with mild alcohol presence - not too hot for a RIS. Superb - my favorite Evil Twin beer thus far.

A 16oz can from the new 4-pack, served in a snifter. This was really good. Complex flavors. Very smooth. Prior to today, the lowest price I'd seen for this was $14.99 for the 22oz bottle. Today I bought a 4-pack of the new 16oz cans for $14. At that price, this might be my new go-to imperial stout.
