Evil Twin Imperial Biscotti Chili Hazelnut Break

Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing
Country: USA
ABV: 11.5%
Style: American Imperial Stout
Other Notes: Imperial Stout brewed with coffee and chili with hazelnut and vanilla extracts added

Brewer Description: (from can) Italy has a certain ‘Je ne sais quoi’ – fab food culture, highly decadent history of art and cool countryside. Some might argue the people are loud and flamboyant, they steal our women, the soccer players melodramatically flop on the pitch. Listen – that’s all part of the secret Italian ingredient – keep it cool, confident, arrogant and extravagant. Forza Italia.

Intro: A 1 pint can, batch #001, but with no clear canned on or best before date. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: Black in colour with a one finger brown head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some spotty lacing.
Aroma: Chocolate, cocoa, roasted malts, coffee, hazelnut and vanilla.
Taste: Moderate sweetness, chocolate, vanilla, coffee, brown sugar, with a touch of hazelnuts and a hint of chili on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with soft carbonation.
Overall: Nice chocolate and coffee aromas. Taste has a nice chili kick but perhaps slightly on the sweet side for me.
