Evil Twin Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break

Today’s beer is one that I had been on the hunt for. Let’s see how it was.

ABV: 10.5%

Style: American Double/Imperial Stout

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We Have All good intentions to disturb, disorder and enlighten you with unforgettable beer after beer. Because We are so much in love with good taste, all the beers from Evil Twin are prepared in 10 of the best breweries around the world. Exclusively hand picked to please you with delicate, funky, extreme and by all means rare flavors. Maybe not the easiest way, but certainly the most fun!!! One More Thing A clever man once said: ‘Stay thirsty… stay foolish.’ That sounds like our vision, just with a tad less attitude.”

Random: It’s getting to be late for stout season. Soon, I’ll need to transition to warmer weather beers.

This beer poured with a one and a half finger of dark brown head on top of an inky, black body. Due to the color, there was no visible carbonation. I let the beer warm for a few minutes before getting into it. When I did, the nose had notes of cinnamon, milk chocolate shavings, almonds and a touch of chili pepper and smoke for good measure. The taste started with smoke and milk chocolate. It quickly went into almond milk, vanilla and chili pepper. There was cinnamon and nutmeg present as well. The booze made a slight appearance at the end. The body was on the thicker side with light carbonation. It had a lengthy finish with cinnamon and chili peppers. I picked up this bottle for $14.99, which came to $.68 per ounce, which was definitely on the more expensive side. Despite this, I thought it had really good flavor and would pick this up again.
