COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Skillet Donut Stout (7.5% ABV): The perfect beer for your morning will remind you of a cup of coffee and a chocolate-glazed donut. All the flavors are there thanks to Riverbend Malt and Biltmore Coffee Traders. A hefty dose of milk sugar and molasses sugar keeps its round and easy drinking.

This poured a darker brown with a beige head. Aroma of stale watery coffee mainly. Flavor was more complex, more cold pressed coffee, a bit thin, but did actually finish with a donut finish. Weird.

Can shared at Kickback by Jason. Pours a dark brown/black with a lighter brown head. Aroma is of cold brewed coffee and surprisingly I get donut in there as well. Taste is roasty like an iced coffee with a touch of sugar. Definitely one of my favorites from the night.

16 ounce can thanks to John. Dark pour. Smell/aroma is great. Chocolate and roast and coffee and even some donut/lactose. Taste is medium body with same flavors. Very tasty.

Black pour. Medium sized tan head. Little lacing. Big coffee and chocolate aroma. Huge coffee taste. Some chocolate nib notes as well. Nice.

On tap at the brewery in March 2015. A really nice drinkable stout that perfectly toes the line between low enough in ABV that you could order more than one and high enough in ABV that it’s BIG enough. Nice bittersweet chocolate stout with some coffee. My biggest critique here is with the donut served with this...don’t get me wrong, I’m all for a donut hole with any stout, but for gods sake it should be a chocolate donut hole!

Pours opaque sable with a thin buff head. Aroma has a strong quality coffee overtone, plus roast malt and chocolate hints. Flavor is like high quality mocha with malty and even charred hoppy hints, very tasty. Firm mouthfeel has good fizz. Go dough-nuts for this one!

Draft at the brewery The stout poured a deep black with tan head and lacing. Big coffee aroma greets you. Coffee dominates this stout, maybe too much so. It had a medium body with soft carbonation. A slight bitter bite nips the tongue as the swallow wraps up the long dry finish. I think just too much coffee.

On tap at Burial. Smoky coffee and... Yes, fried dough aroma. Solid coffee and sweet pancake with maple syrup. Interesting, and not bad.

Dark black pour with some woody brown notes and thin tan head. Roasty and coffee in the nose with some burnt sugar. Bitter chocolate and day old coffee in the flavor. Medium dry.

Keg at the brewery. Line out the door for this one. Pours near black with a thin fizzy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of strong coffee, chocolate, brown sugar. The taste is chocolate, roasted malt, sweet coffee, lactose. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.
