Evil Twin ‘Imperial Biscotti Break” Craft Beer Review


Brewed by Evil Twin Brewing


Style: American Double/Imperial Stout

12.60% ABV

Serve at 50-55°

Availability: Rotating

Enjoyed from a tulip glass

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: Pours a deep, opaque black. Very creamy in appearance. Leaves a thin, mocha-colored ring around the glass. Little retention.

S: Standard for the type. Plenty of malt, vanilla, anise, amaretto, brown sugar, burnt molasses, milk chocolate, and fresh-baked bread. Grassy/piney hops.

T: Whoa. Super sweet, almost to a fault. Almonds, chocolate, coffee, ripe fruits, ripe fruits, candied cherries, marzipan cookies, and a slight not of piney hops.

M: Medium bodied and oily. Chewy and a little thinner that what I expected.

O: Not bad all in all, just a little too sweet for me. That’s not out of the ordinary for a beer in this style, but a little reserve would have gone a long way. Nice beer, but I can’t suggest this based on the price. This would be a bigger success if it clocked in under $10.
