Evil Twin Brewing Imperial Biscotti Break Imperial Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Evil Twin Brewing Imperial Biscotti Break Imperial Stout -brewed with coffee beans and natural flavors added. I picked up this bottle at one of my favorite bottle shops in the Bay Area, Royal Liquors in San Jose (here). If you get a chance, head in there and tell ‘em that Mark from NorCal Beer Blog sent you. You’ll be glad you did – they have an incredible selection!
From the Evil Twin Brewing website: “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.”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours black with no head and spotty lacing.
Aroma: Dark chocolate, roasted coffee, caramel with a touch of vanilla and a bready or cookie scent.
Taste: Dark chocolate, espresso, roasted and caramel malts, biscuit, slightly sweet and a touch of vanilla.
Overall: Thick, rich, smooth and delicious, Evil Twin Brewing Imperial Biscotti Break Imperial Stout is another winner from this brewer. This 11.5% ABV offering from Evil Twin Brewing is balanced and incredibly drinkable. Another out of the park beverage!
