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.

MetalNHopHead (1250) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - JAN 3, 2016
In a night filled with dark, huge, malty beers (and a following day filled with misery that was still totally worthwhile) Imperial Biscotti Break managed to stand out. Evil Twin doesn’t make small beers. This Imperial Stout is big, rich, and dangerous. Flavor is light on coffee and heavy on bittersweet (mostly sweet) chocolate and blackened barley. Mouthfeel is full and warm. Did I mention full? You could probably chew this. Oh, and did I mention boozy? Holy hell.

HuskerTan (1521) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - DEC 31, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2016 (Thanks Josh! "StFun") Bottle. A- Chocolate fudge. A- Black color, black liquid, brown head. T- Fudge, chocolate, subtle coffee. P- Full body, average texture, average carbonation, full body. O- This is a beer I’ve always wanted but thought no way it can be worth the cost of admission for a bottle. I was gladly wrong. This was delicious. It wasn’t overly complex and didn’t have a ton of things going on. Lots of fudge like chocolate and it was done well. Very tasty.

Quite awesome. Strong Flavors and aromas. Chocolate, vanilla, coffee, toasted-bready malt with a slight sweetness and mild bitter finish. Beautifully dark with a thin head and heavy. Dessert beer.

tennisjoel (1326) - Rochester, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Picked up at Princeton Liquors in Plymouth. Dark pour. Tastes of licorice, vanilla, fig, molasses, soy. A bit thin for such a big beer. Not a huge fan. A bit pricey.

IvoR (92) - New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Pours dark like freshly brewed coffee. Aroma is thin and does not stand out. Flavor is bold and complex: coffee, vanilla, cookie dough, malt. Interesting brew but somewhat off balance.

rumproasts (4828) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Tap. Black with minimal head. Chocolate malt, medium sweetness. Hints of coffee. Incredibly smooth and well balanced. Light alcohol warmth. Likely the best stout I’ve ever had. Amazing stuff.

Gluepot (374) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2015
UPDATED: JUN 14, 2016 A pillowy, well-laced dark mocha head on a jet black body. Nose features dark malt, coffee and a touch of chocolate and booze. The taste profile leads with sumptuous, rich chocolate fudge. Dark roast coffee, tobacco, biscuit malt, vanilla, ripe cherries and caramel underpin the fudge. A hint of liquorice, brandy, oatmeal and a touch of cream work with the dense body and rich texture to create a cake-like, sustained mouth feel. Underneath all that is a hint of sourness. Lots of tastes and sensations but no rough edges. A great IS.
