Next month, Evil Twin Brewing will be shipping an extremely limited version of one of its most popular stouts.
Double Barrel Imperial Biscotti Break is an 11.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with almonds, coffee and vanilla before being aged in BLiS Gourmet bourbon maple syrup barrels for one year. The stout was then transferred to age in marsala wine barrels for an addition six months before being bottled.
As the name indicates, Double Barrel Imperial Biscotti Break uses Evil Twin’s Imperial Biscotti Break as its base, an 11.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with almonds, coffee and vanilla that was first released in 2012. In addition, this is not the first time that Evil Twin has used BLiS Gourmet barrels, as Imperial Biscotti Break Raspberry Umami (11.5 percent ABV), Michigan Maple Jesus (12 percent ABV) and Even More Jesus Bourbon Maple Syrup Barrel Aged (12 percent ABV) incorporate beer that was aged in various versions of the company’s barrels.
In an email, Jeppe Jarnit-Bjergsø, owner of Evil Twin, told Tenemu that Double Barrel Imperial Biscotti Break will be packaged in 22-ounce bottles and will consist of approximately 100 cases that are scheduled to be shipped to retailers in February.
