650 ml bottle purchased at 7-11, Kittery, ME and cellared about 4 months. A swirl around the snifter shows an very oily residue like Exxon oil dumped into the ocean. Aroma is nice, more like chocolate cake rather than donut. Lots of molasses and also mild coffee beans

The flavor is sweet and rich with a full chocolate cake of brownie batter flavors through out the sip. Solid amount of roasted malt, vanilla and burnt sugar. The oily texture on the tongue is the same I see when I swirl the snifter. The alcohol is barely found any place. Rich and decadent, imperial porter that I would think was an imperial stout, no matter the classification because this is solid.

75cl bottle from systembolaget. Pours black with little brown head. Cocoa aroma with loads of coffee and cocoa taste. Sweet but balanced with some bitter coffee after taste. Great beer!

Full bodied black bitter sweet gloopy beer with faint aroma of doughnuts. Just a very good beer to sip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

650 ml. Darkest black with a small ring of bubbles on top. Nose is brown sugar, soy and dark chocolate. Taste is chocolate, merlot, powdered sugar, dark bread, citrus zest and plums. Medium-large body is smooth with low-medium carbonation and is definitely to the sweet side. Abv shows up a bit as this tastes more like a sweet boozy wine about 4 ounces in.

Another Evil Twin and more quality although not overtly amazing as many others. Pour was typical for the style maybe a bit smaller head than expected. Aroma of milk chocolate syrup and maple. Flavor was doughy sweet donuts and milk and chocolate syrup and light chalk and roast. Mouthfeel was sticky to match the sweetness. A bit too sweet.

Thanks to eaglefan538 for sharing. Poured in a red solo cup. Smells like chocolate. Lots of chocolate, some coffee notable. Really, really sweet but shockingly drinkable. Not sure how they did it. I’m sort of impressed. But a bottle split among 4 is about the right serving size.

The Sampler, Bushwick tap: Pours black with a brown head. Aroma is mocha, coffee, sugar, hints of booze, and some roasted malts.Taste was sweet, but not particularly cloying. Plenty of chocolate in there. I am not sure what about this beer was really about the doughnuts, but I suppose it was just the massive sugar and pastry feel. Coffee was there of course. Body was pretty nice. Overall quite good. Surprisingly drinkable.

Un liquide presque noir avec une petite mais performante mousse kaki. Les parfums de sucre vanillé, de chocolat, de café fort, de caramel, de pâte d’amandes et de fruits foncés appellent directement une première gorgée. En bouche, contre toute attente, ce mélange unique n’est pas si sucré. La torréfaction et les notes rôties y jouent un rôle important. Donc, parmi les délicieuses saveurs de malts et de pâtisserie, la présence salvatrice de la robuste combinaison café et céréales rôties. Au palais, le corps costaud est judicieusement touché par des bulles actives. La texture, quant à elle, est bellement crémeuse comme un verre de lait entier. La finale n’est jamais chaude (mais où se cache ce 11.5%?) ni douce mais rendue bien amère par la torréfaction et le traitement rôti. Bière calorique bue avec Frank.
