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.

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.

Sweet and alcoholic, but drinkable. Itís not terrible but definitely drinkable. Tastes like donuts and candy. Itís not terrible.

Rating #1700. Bomber. Aroma is chocolate milk, coffee, doughnuts, licorice, almonds. Pours opaque black with a one finger dark tan head. Tastes like doughnuts, licorice, almonds. Oily texture, average carbonation, full-bodied. This is the catís pajamas. I can imagine this at breakfast. Kind of tastes like Grandmaís oatmeal raisin cookies after it sits in the glass for awhile.

Pours thick dark blackish with a blood red hue and dark beige cinnamon colored head. Nose brings coffee, some black licorice, and roasted dark cacao. Flavor is big on roasted coffee and dark chocolate with hints of pastry from the doughnuts more noticeable on tap than in the bottle.
