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.

This beer is truly a decadent masterpiece and I love it. I've seen a few others picking it apart, but I can't find any faults with it at all. The appearance is a smallish, thick, brown, slow to settle head, some lace, and an opaque black brown black color. Aroma was a volatile chocolate up front, then dark malts, nutmeats, toffee, burnt sugar. Flavor's like nose, in spite of the hype- not over sweet; in fact, nicely bittersweet; just enough tang. Exceedingly well balanced. Body is just perfect for the style with just enough boozy warmth, again to fit this style. An example of genius all around from these guys.

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.
