Notes/Commercial Description:
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 - Looks to pour thick and dark like usd motor oil and has a thin film of head that remains
S - I spent about 10 minutes just smelling this beer because every time I took a whif, I thought I picked up something new. I may have just been confusing myself, but I was picking up licorice with secondary hints of caramel; there were moments when I thought I was smelling a ripe aged barleywine
T/F - I was reminded of the Sam Adams Triple Bock, but in a way that it was probably supposed to turn out. Deep flavors of sweet malt, licorice and hints of alcohol; thick and warming.
O - For me, this is a beer to be sipped slowly in 5-6 oz pours with a group of beer lovers that will appreciate it, especially at over $30 for the bomber. The smells, tastes and feel are complex and the beer alone makes for interesting conversation/discussion.
