Been waiting to sit down and enjoy/rate this one for awhile now. Iím not sure what it is about these traveling beer gypsies but they make some damn good beer, however this one had a $16.99 price tag. 22oz bomber split graciously with the gf poured into a bomber. Pours a deep Brown almost black with an almond colored head that continues to lace. Aromas of creme brulee, yeast, faintest hint of green apple. Flavors of vanilla frosting, slight booze, dark chocolate, almost a milk Stout finish. I think the highlight is the velvety mouthfeel, so creamy and smooth, low on carbonation. Gets better as it warms up. Gf said she liked it better on tap, but I canít comment because I didnít partake. Awesome beer!

Dark, dark brown color and a tiny tan head. Aroma is chocolate, coffee, booze and chocolate syrup sweetness. Taste is dark chocolate, some coffee, that chocolate syrup sweetness just in the background, a slight booze burn. Itís a bit too cloyingly sweet for my tastes, but itís worth working through that to enjoy the other aspects. Medium bodied with a slightly oily feel. Yummy.

Stupid rich chocolate, fudge, cocoa nose. Black, thin tan head. Chocolate syrup, charred oak underneath. Becomes fudgy at midpalate with a beery je ne sais quoi. Full body and smooth. Wonderfully delicious, but almost singularly on the chocolate-fudge spectrum, unsubtle.

Very nice beer. A little better than the biscotti, though similar. Dark chocolate and espresso with lots of bitter roast and a touch of caramel sweetness. Finishes pretty bitter. Pours black with OK initial head and lacing. Thick texture without being super syrupy. Good stuff.

Pours a black with fluffy dark tan head. Nose is roasty, chocolate, a hint of coffee, burnt sugars. Taste starts off milky sweetness, coffee, then later dark chocolate, finishes with a bitter bakers chocolate. Good medium body. It's a very good stout, buuuuuut I don't take the glazed doughnuts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

The beer is black with a small medium brown head. The aroma has a lot of sweetness with mild coffee and roast. Thereís a big chocolate note. Knowing that there were doughnuts used going in, I donít entirely trust my senses, but Iím also getting a lighter sweetness that reminds me of sprinkles and frosting. Sugary and light. Maybe some lactose sweetness. Thereís some light roasted malt acidity, but itís a big sweet stout. Thereís lots of chocolate with extra sweetness on top of it. Caramel, vanilla, earthy coffee, milk, frosting, toffee, treacle. Big full mouthfeel, though not as creamy as Iíd like. A bit slick. Itís a qualified success. A little too sweet without the body and flavor to go with it. Interesting flavor. The donut seems to be there. Ultimately, itís quite good, just not incredible.
