Fantastic aroma. Jet black in color and a very sweet taste. Stays on palate long after its swallowed. Great finish, great beer.

Art (2266) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2015
Dark brown pour. No head. Aroma is tons of raisins and figs. Not a whole ton of roast. Maybe some chocolate. Taste is sweet without much underlying flavors. Medium thick mouthfeel. Not getting any doughnut.

The_Osprey (3244) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell. Black with a small brown head. Aroma is chocolate, treacle, bourbon. Doughnuts too I suppose, since they’re mentioned. Body is medium, smooth, rounded. Taste is sweet molasses and soy sauce. Has that meaty sweetness of the others in the series, but less of it. Chocolate and prune. Finishes with ash, spice and booze. A nice slow sipper if a little one dimensional and sweet. Good.

Turtles (512) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 26, 2015
650ml bottle from Systembolaget, bought in September 2014. Black with a creamy tan head. The aroma has oaked aromas, with sweet biscuits and candies. Mild carbonated with a thick, creamy mouthfeel, full body. Very deep and rich flavor, caramel, oak, vanilla, brownies, almond, chocolate, coffee and much more. Incredible depth in taste and nose. Forget the 11.5% you just want more.

Zakoon (244) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2015
650ml bottle enjoyed @ home. Pours black with a nice looking tan head. Aroma is vanilla, chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and liquorice. Flavour is sweet and medium bitter. Full bodied, oily texture, soft carbonation. Finish is sweet, dark chocolate and warming alcohol.

McNeillR (1758) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 18, 2015
Murky bright brown, decent glint but fairly opaque - greasy tan lacing and thin ringed head. Very sweet, not really overly roasty nose - peppery perhaps. Initial taste is loose greasy roast, not overly bitter and tang of cola nut sweetness. Greasy enough mouthfeel but holds a bit better than the others, crusty on the linger. Finishes seedy sweetness, gritty bitter.

madelfonatree (117) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2015
Look - Nice, tan head with fine bubbles. Little retention. Thick, oily body. Smell - Slight bourbon smell. Very sweet. If the beer wasn’t called Doughnut Break I couldn’t smell glazed doughnuts, but it is there. Raspberry. Coffee. Dark chocolate. Taste - The smell translates right to taste. More barrel than expected. Feel - Thick and syrupy. I don’t feel much carbonation. Oozes down the throat. Overall - Doughnut Break on Doughnut Day! Well, 23 minutes late. This had a lot of KBS traits minus all the booze (more so than Breakfast Stout). Good stuff.
