Brewery: Evil Twin Brewing
Style: American Imperial Porter
Other Notes: Produced and bottled for Evil Twin Brewing at Westbrook Brewing Co., USA. Imperial Porter malt beverage brewed with coffee and with natural flavors added
Brewer Description: (from bottle) Did Imperial Biscotti Break also make your sugar levels rise and the bitter sweet flavors of coffee, almonds and chocolate very 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.

Intro: A 22oz bomber with no clear bottled on or best before date. Poured into a snifter.
Appearance: Black in colour with a half finger brown head that dissipated fairly quickly while leaving some sparse spotty lacing.
Aroma: Sweet doughy doughnuts, banana bread, milk chocolate, coffee, caramel, brown sugar and marshmallow.
Taste: Sweet doughnut to start, followed by milk chocolate, cocoa, coffee, caramel, brown sugar and vanilla. There is only perhaps a very light dark chocolate bitterness on the finish.
Mouthfeel: Creamy, medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall: This was sweet, not too sweet as to put me off at the beginning, but definitely approaching my limit the more I drank with a whole bomber. Would definitely prefer it in a smaller 330ml bottle.
