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.

(Aug, 2015) Wow, I guess this is my first perfect 5. I do love this beer and I'd love to see the Imperial Doughnut Break come around again.

EDIT (2017): After having multiple batches of this beer, I have to conclude that either my tastebuds were primed perfectly for this beer the first time around, or I just had one godly bottle of it. I have no idea how old that first bottle was, perhaps this beer does better with age on it, but I've edited my current score to reflect my currect feelings on the beer after having about a dozen or more cans.

From notes on 7/2/15.

Finally pulled the trigger and bought this. Haven’t really been a fan of Evil Twin yet. This beer was good, but sort of a let down too. Poured kind of thin, with a nice coffee aroma. Very sweet tasting, but lacking in the mouthfeel. The sweetness was more reminiscent of a mocha than that of coffee.
