EVIL TWIN / WESTBROOK IMPERIAL MEXICAN BISCOTTI CAKE BREAK IMPERIAL STOUT

Beginning with a heavy black coffee influence, astoundingly thick and chewy full body (with well-hidden 10.5% ABV) gains moderated cinnamon, almond and cocoa nibs adjuncts draped by viscous black chocolate syrup. Arguably bettering the original Imperial Biscotti Break (and brewed in conjunction with fellow South Carolinians Westbrook), luxuriously rich variant takes time developing a true almond or cinnamon biscotti flavor as wispy habanero peppering contrasts sharp sugar spicing below the chocolate fudge-caked dessert midst. Bittersweet vanilla-beaned dark cocoa and sticky anise goo thicken the massive mocha plot while tertiary black grape, black cherry and fig illusions add complexity to splendid dessert treat.
