Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break Review

Name: Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break
Style: Imperial Stout
ABV: 11.5%

Another Evil Twin Imperial Stout? Why not! This time around, I've got their Imperial Biscotti Break, which is brewed with coffee, almond and vanilla. Why it's named after the Italian cookie is beyond me, but it may have something to do with the almonds since they are usually in Biscottis.

Appearance - Black with a foamy dark tan head with some abundant lacing.

Aroma - Chocolate malts & roasted barley with some light coffee grounds and mild vanilla sweetness. I'm not getting any of those almonds, at least not yet.

Taste - Chocolate malts and coffee grounds on the front of the palate with some mild vanilla sweetness towards the middle, along with some almonds, which finally make an appearance. In the back, I'm getting more of that coffee and hop bitterness & some more vanilla notes. The aftertaste is also on the bitter/roasty side, with just a hint of almond to cap things off.

This is a pretty good Imperial stout, and the vanilla and almond add a nice subtle dimension to the overall flavor. On top of that, the price I paid at $10 for a four-pack make this a pretty good deal. All those factors make this very easy for me to recommend.

Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Break - 8.5/10
