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.

Sampled on tap at the brewery (5/21/15). Coffee and donuts aroma. Dark brown-black with thin head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Great coffee and donut flavor to this with sweet doughy donut finish and sweet lingering after. Tasty.

Extra can from a trade. Dark black with a massive head. Nose of dark coffee, with some rich chocolate elements coming through, as well as molasses. Taste is quite bitter, much more than expected, with chocolate and bitter coffee. Does have a donut element to it, but bitterness predominates.

jnkor (352) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - FEB 20, 2016
Aroma is full of sweet coffee. Color is a nice dark with a circle white head. Taste was interesting, coffee notes that settle down into the taste of toasted donut. Finish is dry but not parching. Fun one!

Darwenus (805) - Virginia, USA - FEB 2, 2016
This is a really well balanced stout. Sweet, but not overly sweet. It pours dark brown to black with a little foam. The aroma is chocolate and coffee and sugar. Thankfully that sugar does not dominate the flavor. It leans to the coffee side on the front, with some bitter baker’s chocolate coming through in the finish, and just enough sugar to imply the donut quality mentioned in the name. This is a fine beer.

Smells like coffee and donuts. Almost black, with dark red highlights, and a somewhat lasting beige head. Mostly dry, roasty, heavy coffee, some cinnamon. Medium-full bodied.
