4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Sybarite Pig in Boca Raton, FL. Pours a black thick liquid with a dark tan thick head. Nice lacing. Aroma is...well....doughnut. Yup. That old fashioned non-iced Krispy Kreme doughnut. Aroma of dough, cocoa, vanilla, confectionerís sugar, and cinnamon. The taste is similar but thank God it isnít overly sweet. It just taste like those old fashioned doughnuts. Creamy texture, doughy finish. Probably one of the best stouts Iíve ever had. Delicious.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12/27/14. 22oz bottle from a QC Hy Vee. Black pour with a small brown head, okay lacing. Rich, sweet aroma, some ash and char, chocolate, more sweetness. I wouldnít say Iíd call it doughnut if I didnít know. Rich, sweet flavor, again not much what I would call "doughnut." Mainly itís just stouty - coffee, chocolate, mild ash and bitterness, definitely on the sweet side. Like others said, itís pretty tasty, but Iím glad I split the bottle 4+ ways.

5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
This beer is truly a decadent masterpiece and I love it. Iíve seen a few others picking it apart, but I canít find any faults with it at all. The appearance is a smallish, thick, brown, slow to settle head, some lace, and an opaque black brown black color. Aroma was a volatile chocolate up front, then dark malts, nutmeats, toffee, burnt sugar. Flavorís like nose, in spite of the hype- not over sweet; in fact, nicely bittersweet; just enough tang. Exceedingly well balanced. Body is just perfect for the style with just enough boozy warmth, again to fit this style. An example of genius all around from these guys.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Tap and Handle. Thick black appearance with a dark brown head. Aroma is chocolate syrup, vanilla, and sugar. A little gooey texture. Very cloying. I suppose you can get some glamor of glaze. Itís mostly chocolate, sugar, and garbage. Sort of cool for an ounce then itís super sugary and boozy.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Whatís Brewing. Black as the original sin, with a finger-thick tan head leaving some lacings. The aroma has lots of molasses and brown sugar, with some dark chocolate and mocha. Itís lightly hop bitter on the palate, full-bodied, soft and lightly warming. Molasses, dark sugars, mocha and chocolate in the flavor, quite sweet. Everlasting finish. An intense and lovely beer, perhaps a tad sweet and dark malts only, but sure a beer I would love to repeat. A bottle on my own would be nice too. 141101
