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.

22oz bottle served in a large snifter. I don't see an obvious date.

Pours black with no head. Little or no carbonation. Smell is maple bourbon, vanilla and smoke. Roasty. Chocolate. Smells very nice.

Taste is sweet, syrupy, vanilla, chocolate, licorice, but surprisingly mild.

Mouthfeel is silky, smooth, but a little flat. Overall, not bad, but not exceptional.

1 pint 6 oz bottle poured into a Prairie Artisan Ales snifter L: pitch black with a thick creamy brown head and spotty lacing A: mild sour cherry note with coffee and bitter chocolate, and almond scents T: flavor follows the nose; sour and bitter with sweet milky almond and vanilla overtones M: medium and creamy with a coating residue O: a little overrated in the scarcity and price, but an enjoyable beer.

*Update- 6/15/16 bought a 4 pack of cans. This is on the level of Cigar City's Marshall Zukhov's or Caffe Americano. Very impressive stout. I plan on getting another 4 pack.

A - nice deep brown and strong head
S - light sweetness (too light though)
T - completely hides alcohol heat, but chocolate and coffee flavor is very light
M - nice thickness
O - nice, but too light in flavor for me - needs stronger something to distingush it
