    Just finished my bottle, its very good, not a must buy again for me, but very very nice. I can find just as enjoyable beers for less money. Yes, I know that's a shocker for Evil Twin/Mikkeller beers, etc.

    I really dug it but 6oz was more than enough for me. Had to cap the bomber and finish off tonight.

    Found IBB available here in the upstate of South Carolina, this weekend. Can't wait to test this one out. Flavor profile sounds right up my alley!

    I can't speak for him but I was at Hop City last month and they had it, no idea if there's any left there now though.

    It has definitely moved up the list for me as well (Founder RIS would be on that list as well, though). Each time I drink it I am more impressed.

    The bottles you find now is second batch. Third batch will be packaged next week, so should be out for christmas. Each batch is 6000bbl so 18000bbl has been brewed so far.

    Any chance of Europe seeing this, you awful, awful traitor?

    The second part of that sentence was tongue-in-cheek.

    I still have a few Imperial Biscotti Break bottles FT. PM me. Also anyone try the regular biscotti break? Got an opinion on the difference in taste? I'm looking for that one myself.

    No clue, but it's been on the shelf at stores in Birmingham since February at least, maybe before that.... LOTS of it actually

    I don't understand all the love this malt beverage gets, extreme sugary sweetness like Creme Brûlée. Never again, especially at $18 per bomber.

    It showed up again on LI.

    It truly is a favorite.
    EvilTwin, in general, is proving to be a favorite brewer.

    Didn't read any responses. Just wanted to chime in and say, the tap version I experienced might have been the best coffee Stout I've ever had , minus BCBS COFFEE. up there with or better than Speedway.

    Must have been a big distribution from Evil Twin...I just found a ton of their beers, including Imperial Biscotti Break, at my local bottle shop, which surprised the hell out of me. For perspective on the scope of this place, they only get one case of KBS when it releases.
    Picked up an Imperial Biscotti Break, a Yin (didn't see Yang, sadly), and a Christmas Eve at a New York City Hotel Room. Which BA lists as retired, and only a 2011 vintage, but I have a bottle from this year, so...?

    I hope you're exaggerating, because I'm really excited to try this now that I finally found it, but I could barely finish Creme Brulee. We'll see...

    He's...kinda exaggerating, in my opinion. It's not as sweet, but it's definitely close. I may not be the best judge because I had no problem putting down Crème Brûlée, but I feel like Biscotti was a bit more balanced. Still, expect a very sweet stout, or you'll be disappointed (and for the prices Evil Twin goes for, you may anyway). Biscotti is the only Evil Twin beer I will buy again.

    I didn't think it was too bad, I paid $13.99 for it. And I'm not afraid of a very sweet stout, as long as it's balanced.

    I liked it better on tap than from the bottle.

    Also, the DeCicco version is better.

    Had some on tap, not my favorite style, but I really enjoyed it. I found it not as sweet as Creme Brulee.

    DeCicco's version is far better, but still love the classic!

    I'm disappointed with a lot of Evil Twin's beers (mainly the prices), but Aun Mas, Even More Jesus, Biscotti, and Lil' B are all excellent.

    Wasn't as good as I expected it to be. I have a bunch of Deccico's version at my place but haven't popped one open yet
