Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: Netdigger2 on 02-25-2013

Did the flavors of sugar and bitter sweet almonds and coffee in Imperial Biscotti Break also make you sentimental? Now we topped it off with insane amounts of doughnuts. This all time American favorite is making it’s way back into the spotlight and we at Evil Twin Brewing are not letting a tasty trend pass us by without taking it to the next level. Drink it with great gusto - Forza Doughnuts.

A: poured into a snifter to a deep black with minimal dark tan head formation that fades quickly to a collar around the edge of the glass
S: smells of chocolate and coffee with some roasted malts and burnt sugar
T: taste is coffee, sugary sweetness, almods, dark chocolate and slight roasted malt and some slight doughnut flavor. swallow is roasted malts, a little charred wood and some chocolate covered coffee beans.
M: fairly heavy on the palate but not chewy with soft carbonation and a neutral finish that leans toward drying
O: This is a big beer with big flavors, great complexity and no apparent alcohol flavors. It tastes great and drinks well for the size so if you like big stouts you should try and get your hands on this one.

Enjoyed from the 22 oz bomber in a Delirium snifter, this fantastic (porter?!?) imperial stout pours a thick oily black with a dark tan frothy head that slowly dissipates to a thin coating layer and a beautiful ring with frothy clinging lacing. Nose of rich roasted coffee, thick sweet dark chocolate, moderate booze with warmth, and deeply roasted malts. Flavors are EXCELLENT. Coffee and chocolate ganache compete to a strong sweet malt backbone that is not overdone. Espresso flavors win out in the end and on the aftertaste with a slick, smooth, creamy mouth feel with just the right amount of carbonation and a strong alcohol warmth that makes this a year round fantastic desert imperial stout. Awesome. A new standard that will be hard to surpass.
