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.

A- Thick and viscous. Deep bark color with a dark caramel head that doesn't hang around too long before settling into a soft ring. Impressive looking to say the least.

S- Coffee leads the way. Roasted malts and nuts, sweet cookies, and a hint of chocolate.

T- Abundance of sweet notes that weren't apparent with the nose. Borders on cloying, but slides back just before going over the edge. The biscotti cookie really comes through and complements the coffee character well. Warms up nicely with mocha, whipped cream, and slight charred caramel flavors.

M- Full bodied no doubt. Creamy, smooth, and alcohol with a kick.

O- a terrific breakfast or desert beer. Would be fantastically paired with a biscotti cookie or cream donut. Not sure that I would have again on its own, but would be sought out on the right pairing occasion.

$15.99 for 22 oz bomber.

L - DARK. Very dark. Little foam head, which breaks up quickly.

S - Cocoa, seemed like all it was.

T - Lots of chocolate and sweet tasting. Not being a chocolate fan, this is just too much chocolate for my liking.

F - Better after taste than initial. Not as intense as the chocolate upfront.

O - Not being a chocolate fan, it really hurts my overall score of this beer. I will say though, that as it warmed and I drank the 22oz bottle, it did get progressively better.
